  • Architect and build the data and analytics infrastructure that powers thousands of insurance programs and $100+ billion in gross premiums

  • Directly influence and introduce new engineering standards, tooling, and processes that help the team scale

You will be effective if you have:

  • Highly proficient in Python or comparable language
  • Experience with Postgres or comparable database
  • Experience with data automation and ETL (Kubernetes, Terraform, and Airflow are a plus)
  • Experience with Docker
  • Experience with serverless technologies like Lambda or GCF
  • Experience with Flask/Django and building REST APIs or comparable frameworks
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts

Nice to have:

  • DevOps, CI/CD experience
  • AWS or Google Cloud experience
  • Collaboration tool experience (like JIRA)
  • Data wrangling/cleaning experience (Pandas, Jupyter Notebook)
  • Various database admin experience

Our hiring process:

  • We will schedule an initial phone or video call for 30min max to discuss your experience and expectations
  • We will introduce you to talk to an engineer at Ledger
  • We will evaluate your skills with a small code project intended to take a maximum of 3h
  • We will have follow-on interviews with 1 or 2 members of Ledger
  • We make an offer


  • Generous Salary and possible Equity compensation
  • Work from anywhere - Fully remote
  • 401k
  • Healthcare Insurance premium participation
  • Gym membership
  • Quest 2 VR headset
  • $5000 paid by Ledger towards your dream desk setup!
