Who We Are

Micruity is a 3-year-old Insurtech startup formed to empower employers to add pension-like insurance products to their retirement plan. We do this by standardizing and automating the transaction between a life insurance company and a benefits administration system.

Based in Toronto (Ontario) and San Mateo (California), we are looking for outstanding software development talent to help build exciting new insurance products that actually help people – by alleviating the stress associated with retirement planning and financing. We are singularly focused on leading innovation in this space and building brand new capabilities.

Currently a company of seven, we value ownership, independence, collaboration, and communication… with a bias towards getting things done with measurable results. Micruity’s technology team currently consists of the CTO/Architect, Senior DevSecOps, and Senior Full-Stack Developer – supplemented by Product Analysts.

About The Role

This role is for an experienced software developer who loves creating new applications, tackling convoluted problems, and coming up with clean, stable, robust, highly available, ultra-secure solutions that scale.

The ideal candidate would be someone who has a genuine passion for designing and implementing elegant software solutions. They would also be intimately familiar (and up to date) with their development ecosystem – making sound decisions when it comes to choosing the right tool or library for the job.

We expect our senior developers to suggest refinements to the technical stack, be able to contribute across the entire product line, as well as collectively oversee the integrity of the codebase.

Our Technical Stack

• AWS Serverless Application Model & Orchestration
• AWS DevSecOps (CodeCommit, CloudFormation, SecretsManager)
• AWS application infrastructure (S3, Step Functions, Lambdas, EventBridge, API Gateway, Route 53, IAM, and others)
• AWS DynamoDB NoSQL, RDS PostgreSQL
• JavaScript on NodeJS (with Express)
• AWS Amplify, React
• Sequelize ORM
• REST + Socket.IO, GraphQL
• Day to day, we use the usual: Slack, JIRA, Confluence, GitHub, MS Office, etc.

Required Qualifications and Skills

• A few years of experience as a professional software developer at the senior level.
• Strong software development fundamentals (data structures, algorithms, etc.).
• Great familiarity with modern JavaScript (ES6) and intimate knowledge of the JS ecosystem (tooling, libraries, etc.).
• Expert level familiarity with one or more front-end frameworks.
• Knowledge of good practices and design patterns; writing idiomatic JavaScript code.
• Deep understanding of performance implications and scalability of code.
• Experience with large, complex code bases and know how to maintain them.

Good to Have

• B.Sc. degree in Computer Science or related discipline.
• Experience with the AWS ecosystem of products.
• Experience with frameworks compatible with Express (Feathers, Sails, Nest, etc.) and API Proxies for access control and provisioning (Terraform, MuleSoft, DreamFactory, etc.).
• Experience leveraging logging + analytics – for our common good (Logstash, Kibana).
• Keenness for writing good, meaningful tests and maintaining thorough test coverage.
• Background in FinTech or Insurtech (Insurance, Finance, Financial Services, etc.).
• Strong math abilities – everyone here is kind of geeky that way.


• Collaboratively work with product managers, engineers, data scientists, and designers to set overall development strategy and deliver high quality software.
• Be the gatekeeper of the codebase and ensure that it stays stable, readable, and free of technical debt, while building & improving code across the entire stack.
• Occasionally assist with recruitment, interviewing, and hiring new team members.
• Provide mentorship to junior team members, participate in design decisions and collaborate in technical reviews.
• Help the business by participating in occasional sales engineering (possible travel).
• You’re an early hire – help define our engineering culture and build our “dev machine”.
