Simply Business is more than our name. It's how we approach insurance: Make it clear. Make it simple. Make it affordable. By combining exceptional talent, technology, data, and knowledge, Simply Business is the go-to online insurance brokerage that protects small businesses and the entrepreneurs who work hard to build them.
We harness cutting-edge data ability, believe in experimentation, and build our own technology to deliver better experiences for our customers and employees. This means we’re as much a technology company as one that sells insurance. We build, we fail, we learn, we improve. We’re a B Corp too, which recognises our strong track record of having a positive impact on people, society and the environment.
We want team members who have the drive to challenge boundaries. If you’re smart and passionate about delivering brilliant customer experiences, we’d love to hear from you.

We pride ourselves on fostering a sense of community, which is only made stronger by each individual at SB, so you'll have the opportunity to meet a variety of people throughout the process. Get excited!
We need a Senior Software Engineer to join us in Boston.
This role will develop customer-focused products in a culture which champions Agile, cross functional teams and continuous collaboration.
Our Tech Stack:
Stages 3 & 4 will take place over the course of a day over Zoom lasting a combined 3 hours. Adequate breaks will be factored into the day throughout your interview process.
Programming Assessment (90 minutes)
The programming assessment will be conducted with engineers from across the business. You will be assessed on the key areas which are coding and testing. As well as the above you will be assessed on your communication skills, i.e. explaining your decisions, convincingly arguing your choice of style and practice and demonstrating good collaboration.
If you have a preferred coding language then please let us know as soon as possible as the Programming Assessment is usually done in Ruby
Technical Deep Dive (45 minutes)
This will be a conversation conducted by engineers and possibly product managers from the business. For this session we’ll be looking to understand more of your technical foundations, how you like to work and your approach to problem solving.
We’re looking for a good testing mindset, the ability to explain technical solutions to problems in a way that can be understood by non-engineers as well as an understanding of agile software practices and where you have applied them.
Strengths & Values (45 minutes)
We are a values driven company with each area of the business having its own set of nuanced values that feed into each team.
This session is mostly non-technical although due to the nature of the role there will be some technical questions in particular with how you work within a cross-functional environment with non-technical colleagues.
The questions will revolve around the Simply Business values - learning, empowerment, authenticity, pioneering and simplicity and this section will contain a healthy mix of hypothetical scenarios.
