Permanent employee, Full-time · Warsaw

Your Responsibilities

As a Software Engineer at FRIDAY, you will actively shape our digital future. You will have a chance to get to the bottom of complex topics such as insurance contract processing, billing, payments, or marketing automation, among others.

If you are eager to work on the leading insurance technology of tomorrow at our Tech Hub in Warsaw, you've come to the right place!

  • You're fearless in talking with stakeholders to understand the requirements.

  • With product owners, designers, and domain experts, you rethink insurance and thrive for the best possible experience for our customers.

  • You analyze and improve the effectiveness, performance, and scalability of our products

  • You want to understand customer needs and dilemmas to build the best solutions - you want to be involved in a domain discovery through Event Storming sessions

  • You contribute to a modular, state-of-the-art software platform with a microservice architecture built and run on AWS

  • With your team, you take ownership of the products you build and continuously work to improve them. Ownership is a great power, and with great power comes great responsibility. That's why you will maintain what you've built as we follow the motto "you build it, you run it."

  • You use technologies from our tech stack: AWS, Kubernetes, Java, Kotlin, Micronaut, Spring Boot and Guidewire as core-insurance systems.

  • You thrive for 100% automation: Not only for customer processes but also in software delivery, testing, and operations - you understand that TDD is not for testing only 

Your ideal background and skillset

  • You have at least four years of relevant work experience with software development, specifically with JVM-based languages, knowing Kotlin will be considered an advantage

  • You know what good architecture is

  • You know what the difference is between lousy code and technical debt.

  • You understand the advantages of the Event Driven approach, and your knowledge about DDD spans beyond the blue book.

  • You are curious and always question the status quo.

  • You have the passion and the skills required to ship high-quality software.

  • You have relevant work experience in an agile team.

  • You understand web-scale software architectures and application design.

  • You feel comfortable building cloud-native applications.

  • You like to share and spread your knowledge.

  • Background in insurance is not required but will be considered an advantage.

What you can expect from us:
