About the role
With grand plans to continue scaling, we’re looking for a passionate, innovative and visionary Software Architect to own our technical landscape and empower multiple tech teams to solve complex problems.
Insurance is complex and fascinating. You should want to soak it up and, ideally, derive real enjoyment from mastering an intellectually stimulating industry - whilst working to change it for the better!
What you'll get up to
Every day is different! As a Software Architect you will set and balance technical direction with business value. You’ll contribute to Superscript’s success by:
- Determining the architecture and technical direction of large and complex applications
- Getting stuck in with our tech stack: PHP, Laravel, Vue, Tailwind, Heroku, Netlify etc
- Aligning teams to the technical vision and keeping them engaged
- Empowering the wider tech team through workshops, pairing and mentoring
- Advising on processes and tools to instil confidence in components and the wider technical landscape
- Communicating with multiple stakeholders (technical and non-technical) to modernise our systems
- Improving our tech team and business with your unique experience and insights
- Creating or contributing to open source projects to give back
We don’t like to put people into boxes, but it’s safe to say you:
- Have experience as a Software Architect (or similar) in a fast-paced environment
- Love determining the technical vision in line with the direction of a business
- Enjoy the challenge of balancing technical idealism with delivery and pragmatism
- Are passionate about healthy code bases and how they can be scaled
- Have excellent communication and presentation skills, whether to the tech team, to business stakeholders or to our leadership team
- Have an appreciation for Event Sourcing and how it can be used an effective tool
- Are opinionated about how applications should be structured and are unafraid to share those thoughts
In return, we offer you:
- A competitive salary and the ability to grow your career at the UK’s leading Insurtech 🚀
- An amazing team and founders, supportive board and investors 🤗
- 25 days holiday - so there’s plenty of time for work, rest and play 🏖
- Hybrid way of working for the perfect work / life balance 🏡
- Vitality private health and dental insurance 🏥
- Great pension (up to 10% on top of your salary) 💰
- Full access to Spill, our mental health platform 🗣
- Cycle to work scheme 🚲
- Latest Apple tech gear & everything you need to be set up for success 🍏
- Fun, modern and informal office environment with regular team social events 👯♀️
- Central London location with the best lunch in town (Borough market!) 🍽
- Remote status
- Hybrid Remote
Established in 2015, we called ourselves Digital Risks. We set out with a simple ambition: to make insurance better for digital businesses. We sparked something special: great products, and a seamless experience to match.
The flexibility offered by our monthly subscription was popular with other businesses too. So, we now provide cover for over 1,000 business types.
In 2020, we became Superscript. A name that, by definition, encapsulates what we’re all about: elevating our customers by providing better cover.
