Job Description:

Our Mission

We make good things happen by recognizing and rewarding people for taking the high road. How? By reinventing insurance that celebrates people's mindful choices.

Insurance was fundamentally a brilliant idea, but it always had a key challenge - it couldn't identify and acknowledge the positive decisions that individuals made along the way. But when we apply smart mobile technologies, we can. And that's what we do. We help our customers save on their monthly bill. But more importantly, they join a growing movement of people who dare to live more mindfully because doing so is simply better for everyone.

We're a well-funded, talent dense team of people who care about using our skills to do good. From data science, to design, engineering, insurance, product, research, user experience and beyond - we believe in people who believe they can make the world even better. Join us, and let's build the higher path that is HiRoad.

* Threading and concurrency in Java/Kotlin and Android are clear to you. You can clearly explain asynchronous options and understand how they run under the hood, able to choose the best option given the task. Race conditions fear your understanding.
