Senior Software Developer

Steadily is a Series A insurtech startup for landlords.  We've grown from 5 to 30 people over the last year to match demand, and the technical/product challenges have gotten really interesting. We're hiring a senior engineer with experience building web apps and service oriented architecture to help us build the core of our stack. Â

At Steadily, our purpose is to give landlords fast, affordable insurance and amazing customer service so they’re confident they’ll have the coverage they need on a rainy day. Because of our technology and service, our customers love being insured by us, even when they have a claim.Â

Why join us

  • You'll be in good company. Not to toot our own horn too much, but the founders are solid engineers. Our VP of Engineering helped grow a company from 15 people to more than 2,000 software engineers. The President has gone through YC twice and has two previous exits.
  • We pay top of market with competitive base salaries and equity
  • You’ll be hands-on with everything, from coding in python to influencing product roadmaps
  • We're growing fast and are well-funded (Series A, $30M)

What you'll build

  • Rating engines for calculating how much an insurance policy should cost
  • Combine property intelligence for external sources to estimate how likely a property is to flood, catch on fire, or get vandalized
  • A mobile experience for people to buy insurance that is so simple/intuitive that your least-tech savvy relative with a flip-phone could use it without help e.g. pass the Mom Test
  • Claim app that uses phone camera and sensors to document the damage smartly

Ideal background

  • Experienced: This isn't your first rodeo. There's no specific minimum number of years requirement, but we expect you to be able to dive into a complex codebase without too much spin-up. Past experience as a team lead is definitely a plus.
  • Builder: You like the product-side of engineering and have thoughtful opinions on what the user experience should be. You're not the type of engineer who wants a fully-fleshed out spec thrown over the wall for you to code.
  • Pragmatic: Let's say you have a tradeoff to make: Option A is to ship something fast using an off-the-shelf API on AWS; you won't learn that much and it only solves 80% of the problem, but it'll only take a few days. Option B is to invest about two weeks building a new library and internally-hosted service that perfectly solves the problem; as a bonus you can share it on Github and give a presentation about it at PyCon. If you choose Option A 10/10 then you'll be at home here.
  • Specific languages: We don't really care if you've worked in our stack before as long as you're happy to learn it. If you're sharp enough to be on this team, you're sharp enough to learn any language or framework quickly.

Our stack

  • Python 3
  • Django
  • Postgres
  • Heroku (with full CI pipeline)
  • Redis / Celery
  • Kafka


  • At least $150,000/year
  • We believe in paying top-of-market to attract the best person for each role.
  • However, the compensation package is usually the second reason people choose to join a startup. The primary reason is they want to experience the growth that comes from pouring your heart and soul into building something that people love. That’s what we do.

Things to consider

This won't be easy. We work extremely hard to sustain our execution velocity and have sky-high expectations of each other. This fact is itself a huge reward: getting to work with other individuals as stellar as you.


  • Paid Time Off
  • Health Insurance
  • 401k / HSA / FSA

We’re excited to meet you!
