As a full-stack engineer at Nirvana, you will,

  • Own and build the product: You will take ownership of key parts of the product and drive it end-to-end with a customer-driven focus.
  • Collaborate with a world-class team: We have an all-star engineering team out of organizations like Rubrik, Samsara and Apple; who believe that collaboration and open feedback are key to building excellent technical solutions to challenging problems.
  • Build team and culture: At Nirvana, we believe that culture is the secret sauce to building a great engineering team. You will build and embody this culture - and set the bar high as we build the company

Here are some of the components you will work on as we take the product to market.

  • Insurance Product: Build a state-machine-driven system that can support complex insurance workflows involving multiple parties such as customers, agents, underwriters, etc. Learn to manage complexity as we add new products to our portfolio and directly impact the company’s top line.
  • Risk and Underwriting Engine: Build a data-driven risk engine to dynamically price premiums based on heterogeneous data types. Build a Domain Specific Language (DSL) to allow underwriters and actuaries to create and rapidly iterate on models. Use cutting-edge explainable ML to improve model performance and mine predictive signals.
  • Safety First Insurance Platform: Build the industry’s first consumer quality insurance platform focused on safety. Help prevent accidents by engaging customers and actively supporting them on their safety journey. Bring a product-focused approach and consumer-grade tech to a big legacy market.

  • You believe in your craft. You care deeply about delivering high-quality experiences and approach development with a high degree of craft. You are passionate about tooling and developer productivity.
  • You like simplicity. You often find the simplest way of achieving something. You care about the long-term readability and maintainability of your codebase.
  • You are a lifelong learner. You learn quickly and can operate independently. You're not afraid to take something on just because you don’t know how to do it yet.

  • You can break up a complex system into clean reusable components, and design interfaces and abstractions given the way you expect internal and external users to consume them.
  • Apart from a deep understanding of the web stack, you understand how everything fits together (such as databases, caching, load balancers, networking, etc.) to debug for performance and reliability issues.
