Software Engineer Back End (Java)

Software Engineer - Back End (Java)

Who are we?

AP Intego’s mission is simple but powerful: to provide small businesses peace of mind so they can pursue their dreams. We believe that insurance should be something that hums along in the background, providing security for businesses while freeing them to do their own thing—whatever that thing may be.

How do we do this? Equal parts creativity and tech, a dash of chutzpah, and our secret ingredient: fierce customer focus. Every day, our customers blow us away with their energy, imagination, and innovation, and inspire us to be as great as they are. We couldn’t ask for a more vital or vibrant community to serve, and we’re extremely proud to play a part in so many amazing small business journeys.  

With a mission like ours, run-of-the-mill thinking doesn’t cut it. As we’re pushing the boundaries of the insurance industry, we’re looking for people who aren’t afraid to imagine new ways of doing things or to try something that’s never been tried before. That’s why we foster a company culture where we support and empower each other to be creative, innovative, and boldly collaborative. We don’t care who or where a good idea comes from, we just want to give everyone the freedom and tools they need to be great at what they do. Our offices buzz with the energy of a company that’s experiencing tremendous growth—and we’re just getting started.

Who are you?

This position will be the lead back end API developer for a new platform to serve our customer base of 45,000+ customers. Architecture, design, and coding from idea to deployment are required.  The programming duties are primarily server side but full-stack web application experience is a plus, i.e you could build a full-featured web application from the ground up. (You won't have to actually do that, but that's the skill set we're looking for.) Bonus points for startup experience. Our team has startup characteristics and culture inside of a stable company.

  • Experience with ORM frameworks (JPA, Hibernate, OpenJPA)
  • Experience with database schema management w/ Liquibase
  • Automated build platforms/continuous integration experience and knowledge (Bamboo, Jenkins, Hudson, Maven, Gradle)

  • Knowledge of high-availability, high-performance, high-scalability web application development
  • Able to jump into new or existing code bases quickly
  • Ability to learn new technologies and skills quickly

  • Competitive compensation
  • 10 company-paid holidays
  • Medical, Dental and Vision insurance
  • Health Savings Account (depending upon your medical plan selection)
