Think insurance shopping is painful and time-consuming? We thought so too. That is why we built jerry.ai to create the easiest experience for our users.

Based in Silicon Valley, we are looking for engineering talent to join our team in Canada. We are backed by Y Combinator, SV Angel, Funders Club, and many other prominent Silicon Valley Investors. Jerry.ai is founded by serial entrepreneurs who previously built and scaled YourMechanic (“Uber for car repair,” the nation’s largest on-demand car repair site).

  • Expert level familiarity with modern Javascript (ES6+: Classes, modules, arrow functions, async/await, destructuring, etc.).
  • Intimate knowledge of JS ecosystem (tooling, libraries, etc.).
  • Expert level familiarity with React (web frontend, server-side rendering, and React Native on mobile platforms).
  • Knowledge of good practices, preferred design patterns, and writing idiomatic Javascript code.
  • Deep understanding of performance implications and scalability of code.
  • Keenness for writing good, meaningful tests and maintaining thorough test coverage.
  • Experience with large, complex code bases and know how to maintain them.
  • Experience with GraphQL and Apollo a big plus.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead design and development of projects, either independently or in a team.
  • Assist with recruitment, interviewing, and hiring new team members.
  • Provide mentorship to junior team members and participate in design decisions.
  • Be the gatekeeper of the codebase and ensure that it stays stable, readable, and free of technical debt.
