Job Description

About Ladder 

We saw a problem within the life insurance industry: getting covered took too long, involved too much paperwork, and required too many in-person meetings with salesy agents. Having lost his father at a young age, our CEO, Jamie, was determined to make it easier for people to get the coverage they needed to provide for their families. So, we got to work. We developed a method of real-time underwriting and, in doing so, reduced the months-long process of applying for life insurance to minutes. Our digital experience is quick (instant decisions!), loved by users (check out our Trustpilot or Google reviews) and prolific ($34 billion in coverage provided)..

About the role  

The Ladder engineering team is looking for a senior engineering manager to come and join us to reimagine what life insurance can be. You will be responsible for leading a team of engineers working on full-stack features that directly impact the business by collaborating closely with other managers, designers, and product managers.

  • Be responsible for continuously improving the productivity of your team
  • Remove roadblocks for your team and escalate when you need additional context or direction
  • Promote a culture of feedback and transparent communication
  • Establish measurable goals for your team's productivity and impact
  • Mentor and lead other engineers and other managers
  • Coordinate with other engineering managers and directors across the engineering org to help to drive standardization, establish best practices, simplify the architecture, remove barriers to shipping, and ultimately achieve your goals

Who You Are

  • 8 years of relevant work experience in software development
  • 4 years of people management experience
  • Focused on end-user and creating customer-centric solutions
  • Demonstrated ability to build a team, develop people, and influence cross-functional teams and senior management 
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science preferred; Master's degree preferred
  • Startup experience, or fintech/insurtech experience a plus
  • High level of proficiency in algorithms, data structures, and systems design

Our engineering culture & values 

  • Bottom-up leadership: teams are most successful when everybody shares their ideas, comfortable that they'll be seriously considered. engineers can and should provide product & business insights.
  • Ship fast without breaking things: we've invested heavily in engineering tooling that provides guardrails without getting in your way. We believe in shipping MVPs & iterating quickly rather than waiting for perfection to ship.
  • Invest in automation: automating repetitive tasks saves time and reduces errors. We're always on the lookout for manual workflows to automate away.
  • Continuous improvement: we learn from our past wins & losses by conducting blameless retros.
