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 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 need an Engineering Lead to join us in Atlanta, GA.

In this role, you will develop customer focused products in a culture which champions Agile, cross functional teams and continuous collaboration.

As a Engineering Lead, you will:

  • Work with small, cross-functional, collaborative teams to drive out requirements, highlight risks and prioritize stories
  • Work with team members to identify areas for learning and helping them grow in these areas via project work, external learning, or additional mentoring

Responsibilities include:

  • Being hands on in developing our products using best practices, and appropriate tools and technologies
  • Leading a small project team of engineers based in Boston and London
  • Championing agile methodologies whilst creating useful systems for our customers in a collaborative way
  • Highlighting areas for continuous improvement and driving their prioritization

What we are looking for:

  • Experience of leading a small project or product team of Engineers
  • Strong programming skills in any language. We look for strong engineers and our philosophy is that a strong engineer is not defined by the technologies they use, so Ruby experience is not essential. You’ll just need to be happy to cross-over to Ruby if you join us – and we’ll support you with that
  • The ability to challenge us! We love people who come in and aren’t afraid to raise questions and help us improve
  • Strong communication and collaborative skills and strong desire to liaise closely with business teams

What's going on with work from home and return to the office?

More and more, people are talking about going back to the workplace and the new normal. At Simply Business, we’re thinking of it as a Better Normal. That means offering our SBers more choice and greater flexibility to work in a way that’s best for their particular job, their teams, and their lives.

We’re shifting to a hybrid working model, so we’ll have employees working virtually and in the office at any given time.

We’re also aware there are times when working together in person is the best way to get things done. We expect our SBers to connect in their hubs (that’s what we call our offices) most likely once every few weeks. That said, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, so we expect all SBers and their teams will find the operating rhythm that works best for them.

If you’re wondering what it might be like for you at Simply Business, our Talent Acquisition is happy to answer any questions. In fact for them, it’s perfectly normal.

Most of our interviews will still take place over Zoom (however, depending on the role, there may be the opportunity/expectation to meet members of the team in-person). If it looks like you could be a good fit for the role, we’ll ask you to interview on Zoom – you’ll need WiFi and a laptop, or a 4G-enabled smartphone. If you don’t have access to either of these, or you need support with your application, get in touch with us at [email protected] Similarly, please email us with any questions or if you want to pause your application for a bit – we’ll be happy to keep you updated on future opportunities like the one above.

An Insider's view of Simply Business

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We genuinely care about the work-life balance of our teammates and understand that things come up. That’s why we give our employees the ability to work from home when they see fit, not the other way around. Plus, all of our meetings are remote-friendly, so we never feel like we’re missing out on important conversations!

What projects are you most excited about?

I've really enjoyed working on the Front End for our Knowledge Center redesign, now called Simply U. Our current blog design has been sufficient, but the redesign will have new features including commenting, recommended articles, and categorization. Additionally, the new design will look much fresher and offer a better experience to customers.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I started at Simply Business, I was given the opportunity to take a leap and take on new responsibilities that I had never done before. My team has supported me and worked with me to help me learn so many new skills. I feel like I have grown in so many ways since starting here and I can't wait to see what is next.

What projects are you most excited about?

Myself and another female colleague are working on bringing a program called #iamremarkable to SB. It is about female empowerment, which is one of my passions! The program aligns with SB's devotion to gender diversity. It’s exciting that I have been encouraged and supported in this effort and I think it speaks volumes for the company I work for!
