Software Engineer

London, England, United Kingdom · Engineering


We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to help us build products that fundamentally change the way insurers see the world, enabling them to move from an assumption based understanding of risk, to an empirical, data-driven view.

The Role

You will be working on some of the company's biggest challenges, ranging from scaling our data processing pipelines (built using Python, Spark, ElasticSearch, Docker, GCP and Airflow) to building out our web crawling infrastructure (based on Python and JavaScript). As a Software Engineer at Cytora, you'll contribute to higher level technical architecture discussions and take opportunities to mentor and coach less experienced colleagues.

Your day-to-day will include:

- Improve, contribute and maintain our data processing pipeline which consist of many ETL jobs

- Contributing to refining our development process, which includes a well-maintained customer-driven feature backlog and strong code review/testing processes

- We take pride in test driven development and peer reviewing colleagues' pull requests to ensure what we build is simple, elegant, reliable and self-documenting

- Each week includes at least one opportunity for learning, typically in the form of a reading group with a presentation from somebody in your team
