About iptiQ: wanna join the disruptors?


We are an InsurTech start-up and we're part of the amazing Swiss Re Group. iptiQ provides digital insurance in different countries and for different lines of business, offering solutions for international brands like IKEA, Immoscout, Prima, and many others! We love coding and leveraging technology to create amazing software that has an impact! We work in teams, following domain-driven design, and we're agile (ok, most of the time (wink)). We empower people to do things through a bottom-up approach. No architects, the architecture belongs to the team! Sounds interesting? 


What our people say


Athanasios B., Software Engineer: "An environment that keeps me thrilled and passionate about software, was always a goal in my professional career. IptiQ absolutely fulfills this with a high level of technical expertise, high-quality engineers, and colleagues with great values - a great working environment. And the feeling of building something meaningful that grows so fast including all the technical challenges make every day at work special."


Amish A., Data Engineer: "IptiQ is a truly international company with people from all corners of the world. Here, your character matters more than just your technical skills. It's a very transparent organization providing opportunities and time to grow in your professional career as well."


Joost van W., Head Test Engineering: "It's a very international company, reflected in the operating markets and the people working with us - they come from all over the world. Everyone is extremely motivated to make each project a success, and together I feel we can tackle any challenge. Each of us can have a real impact on company results. As engineers, we get a lot of freedom to contribute solutions, and help set the direction for the platform. For example, we switched our main language to Kotlin, based on input by our engineers, democratically decided during our Tech Forum meeting. Any good idea can find a place here, you just have to make it happen!"


Our Culture


We really focus on having an engineering culture where everyone's opinion matters. We work with bleeding-edge technology stack keeping constantly an eye (even two) on best practices, writing effective and maintainable code that allows us to scale anytime, anywhere. We moved from Java to Kotlin based on a team decision during a technology all-hands. We value the person more than anything else. We don't look for smart-arse people: we look for nice team players that are friendly and pragmatic. 


About the role


No more insurance talk that only lawyers understand, we’re here to make a difference. 


Are you ready to share your knowledge and contribute to shaping a scalable, high-traffic, multi-tenant resilient platform that serves millions of users worldwide and covers the entire insurance value chain?

Are you interested in solving complex modeling challenges, focusing on creating tested, maintainable and effective solutions that will simplify the life of our partners?

You will have end-to-end responsibility for the applications implemented, including monitoring, identifying issues or bottlenecks, and delivering improvements to the platform.

  • Knowledge of Kotlin, Spring Boot, AWS, NoSQL databases


We accept people from any background and experience. We don't ask for a specific field of study or particular programming language skills. We work with AWS and Kotlin + Spring Boot, and this is what you will be working on.


What we offer
