Whether we’re leveraging data to create customizable coverage or providing claims service that goes above and beyond expectations, our members are at the heart of everything we do.

Simply put, our people are what make us great – we need forward-thinking, inspired game-changers like you to join us in our mission.

So, what’s the role?

As a Senior Software Engineer - Front End Focus at Kin, you'll work on a small team, independently owning and operating a range of features on in-house developed web applications. You'll work with team members in structuring, implementing, delivering, and maintaining web applications built with Angular and Lit (Web Components).

Kin's engineering team is highly collaborative, though we expect at the senior level for you to require little guidance for most features.

In addition, you'll have the opportunity to mentor more junior engineers and occasionally lead small teams.

A day in the life could include:

  • Writing clean, maintainable, and efficient code in Typescript, HTML, and SCSS.

  • Help implement solutions across the stack, such as API design, application UX, performance, etc.

  • Participating in pair programming with team members

  • Taking on more advanced design or architectural tasks

  • Participating in daily stands and weekly retros

  • Collaborating with cross-functional team members

  • Contribute to and expand the engineering team's code culture and practice, including documentation, testing, architecture, and layout.

  • Expert proficiency in modern Javascript/Typescript, HTML, and CSS/SCSS.

  • Experience with modern SPA framework (Angular 2+ preferred), including integration of API calls and state management (NgRx/Redux).

  • Experience building or composing with Web Components.

  • Familiarity with BEM methodology, Object-Oriented CSS principles, and custom component library development.

  • Experience working with APIs (Ruby on Rails experience is a bonus)

  • Experience mentoring junior engineers

  • Comfortable in a startup environment – we're fast-paced, self-motivated, and determined to change the industry.

  • A fast learner, ready to bring previous knowledge to this position and continue developing along the way

  • Location in Central or Eastern time zones (CST & EST) strongly preferred

  • At this time, we are unable to sponsor employment visas.

Oh, and don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

  • Medical, Dental, Vision, Disability and Life Insurance
