Senior Software Engineer

Steadily’s purpose is to help landlords all over the United States purchase insurance through a modern experience and feel confident that they have the coverage they need in case of a rainy day. Because of our cutting edge technology, our clients love being insured by us, even when they have a claim. We're hiring a Senior Software Engineer with experience building web applications and service oriented architecture to help us build the core of our stack.

What You Could Do:

  • Build a mobile experience for people to buy insurance that is so simple/intuitive that your least-tech savvy relative with a flip-phone could use it without help

  • Create a claim app that uses phone camera and sensors to document the damage smartly

  • Design rating engines for calculating how much an insurance policy should cost

  • Combine property intelligence APIs sources to flag flood, fire, and vandalism risks

What You'll Bring:

  • Experienced: This isn't your first rodeo. There's no specific minimum number of years requirement, but we expect you to be able to dive into a complex codebase without too much spin-up. Past experience as a team lead is definitely a plus.

  • Builder: You like the product-side of engineering and have thoughtful opinions on what the user experience should be. You're not the type of engineer who wants a fully-fleshed out spec thrown over the wall for you to code.

  • Pragmatic: Let's say you have a tradeoff to make: Option A is to ship something fast using an off-the-shelf API on AWS; you won't learn that much and it only solves 80% of the problem, but it'll only take a few days. Option B is to invest about two weeks building a new library and internally-hosted service that perfectly solves the problem; as a bonus you can share it on Github and give a presentation about it at PyCon. If you choose Option A 10/10 then you'll be at home here.

  • Specific languages: We don't really care if you've worked in our stack before as long as you're happy to learn it. If you're sharp enough to be on this team, you're sharp enough to learn any language or framework quickly.

Our Stack:

  • Python 3

  • Django

  • Postgres

  • Heroku (with full CI pipeline)

  • Redis / Celery

  • Kafka


  • Total compensation around $300,000

  • Salary of $220,000 - $250,000 annually


  • Equity in the company

  • Employer healthcare contribution

  • 401K

  • Flexible Time Off

  • Health (HSA or FSA), vision, and dental insurance

  • Equipment provided

  • Continued education opportunities


  • Austin, TX

  • Hybrid work schedule - 4 days in-office, 1 days WFH
