ABOUT BESTOW

Bestow is the leading digital platform for life insurance. As both a direct-to-consumer destination and an infrastructure provider, Bestow is on a mission to make life insurance accessible to millions of underserved families. 

We strive for work-life balance and believe happy employees make for better experiences and happier customers. It’s a model that helped us land on Forbes’ Best Startup Employers 2021 and 2022 lists!


As a Senior FullStack Software Engineer on our Enrollment SDK Team, you will join a platform team that builds and maintains Bestow's new TypeScript library. This library is already powering the next iteration of our direct-to-consumer and partner-facing enrollment clients. 

Insurance applications can have multiple question paths, and part of what helps Bestow offer insurance to a broad audience is updating those questions often. This team is taking lessons from our existing efforts to build a library leveraging functional programming patterns to give us flexibility and accelerate our future product launches.
