We here at Spinks have partnered with Bought By Many to assist with their recruitment drive.

Bought By Many is a high-growth and multi-award-winning fintech business on a mission to create insurance that people can love. They are driving unprecedented change in insurance and have doubled their revenues annually for the last 4 years.

They raised almost $100m in the last fundraise in April 2020. They launched a successful business in Sweden in 2019 and there is more ambitious growth still to come. Award-winning innovative technology and exceptional customer service are at the heart of our offer: we now rank 30th on the Tech Track 100 (2020) and we won the Insurance Choice Awards (2020) for both Best Pet Insurance Provider and Innovation of the Year.

Here you'll meet people who think differently, aim for impact, and love to try new things. The company and work culture is energetic, fast-paced, respectful, fun-loving and, most importantly, passionate about pets and their well-being.

The balance of home / office working varies according to the role, with a minimum commitment to be in the office at least twice a month.

We are looking for a hands-on developer with deep technical skills, contributing to the codebase and to the wider engineering team, shaping code and working practices, harnessing the power of SaaS APIs and cloud services to create powerful solutions rapidly, and delivering practical DevOps expertise.

Alongside individually contributing to codebase, you will be providing deep technical leadership by influencing and improving the technical practices of your teammates and the wider professional organisation. We will be relying on your specialised experience, knowledge, teaching, coaching and mentoring abilities as well as your communication skills and know-how to improve the quality of technical practices across the organisation-with a particular focus on automated test creation using techniques like TDD and BDD.
