Acrisure Technology Group (ATG) is a fast paced, AI-driven team building innovative software to disrupt the $6T+ insurance industry.  Our mission is to help the world share its risk more intelligently to power a more vibrant economy. To do this, we are transforming insurance distribution and underwriting into a science. 

At the core of our operating model is our technology: we’re building the premier AI Factory in the world for risk and applying it at the center of Acrisure, a privately held company recognized as one of the world's top 10 insurance brokerages and the fastest growing insurance brokerage globally. By using the latest technology and advances in AI to push the boundaries of understanding risk, we are systematically converting data into predictions, insights, and choices, and we believe we can remove the constraints associated with scale, scope, and learning that have existed in the insurance industry for centuries. 

We are a small team of extremely high caliber engineers with a diverse background across industries and technologies. Our engineers have worked at large companies like Google and Amazon, high frequency trading companies like Two Sigma and Jump Trading, and a variety of smaller startups, including successful startup founders.

The Role

As Software Engineer at ATG, you’ll be an essential part of the team building world-class software to transform the insurance industry. You will work collaboratively as part of a cross-functional team, including AI researchers, AI engineers, product managers, and designers to identify and deliver innovative features, systems, and products to better understand risk and surface insights and recommendations for how best to engage that risk in the marketplace. As a successful candidate, you will take full advantage of state-of-the-art tools, conceiving of new ones when the right solution does not yet exist and act with a sense of urgency and agility to deliver value. You are driven by a passion for improving the world through technology and delighting users. Help us to turn our vision into reality.

Our technology runs on Google Cloud and is configured with Kubernetes, leveraging various services in that environment. Our data storage layer includes BigQuery, BigTable, and Postgres. We code primarily in Kotlin, Python, Java, and JavaScript and make use of many frameworks, including Dataflow, Cloud AI Platform, KubeFlow, Spring, and React.

Here are some of the ways in which you’ll achieve impact:
  • Build efficient and reliable technology with a customer-first mindset.
  • Assist in designing and maintaining our tech stack, building when it makes sense, inventing when necessary, and upgrading as tools evolve.
  • Identify, adopt, and evangelize best practices.
  • Advocate for and identify creative implementations to optimize business impact.
  • Measure the effectiveness of new features, find and address performance issues, and drive continuous improvement.
  • Work collegially and effectively as we grow a world-class, diverse engineering team.
 You may be fit for this role if you:
  • Possess strong knowledge of computer science fundamentals and software engineering principles.
  • Have expertise with modern software tools, libraries, and languages, with experience delivering production code at scale.
  • Are product and customer focused, with a passion for delighting the end user.
  • Possess empathy, kindness towards others, a positive attitude, and self-awareness.
  • Have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent experience.
  • Are willing and able to work from the headquarters in Austin, Texas (preferred), with remote roles considered for the right candidate.
  • Are excited to work for an early stage company to experiment, discover product-market fit and are focused on maximizing business impact.

It’s not expected that any single candidate would have expertise across all of these areas. If you are a solid engineer and eager to work on data or insurance related platforms/products, we are eager to talk to you.

An Insider's view of Acrisure Technology Group

What are some social events your company does?

Prior to COVID, we had monthly happy hours. We have stayed connected with virtual monthly lunch & learns, weekly hangouts with trivia games, and getting to know you activities, that go as far as trying to guess a teammate's freezer from a photo. Our holiday party was a virtual escape room complete with cocktail kits, snacks and gifts delivered!

Bonnie

Senior Executive Assistant

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Every team here at ATG builds on the same platform and works on facets of the same product, so there is constant communication between teams. A few great examples of this are frequent design reviews, where engineers across teams talk through new services, and biweekly demos, where teams get to show off what they have been working on lately.

Claire

Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

My coworkers are a rare blend of experienced, intelligent, and kind. Whether I'm trying to understand how React works, what a transformer network architecture is, or why my Apache Beam job is failing, I can rely on my team to help me figure anything out.

Samuel

Senior AI Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our cross-functional teams engage in quarterly planning to brainstorm and roadmap ideas for how to make the most impact and commit to OKRs as a team. Engineers, Product, Researchers, and more all have a voice in where we’re going!
