We’re looking for a Full Stack Engineer to join our team at Veygo! 

About Veygo

Veygo was founded 6 years ago – part of the pioneering incubation venture ‘Admiral Pioneer’ - created to seed and launch exciting scale ups to disrupt existing marketplaces.   

Veygo has so far seen an impressive 50% YoY growth. We currently provide our customers with temporary and learner car insurance - products designed to make life easier for those wanting to share or borrow cars, insure their own car for a short amount of time, or for people learning to drive.  

What makes Veygo different?

  • We’re building flexible policies for learner drivers and people looking to share cars – whether owned or borrowed.   
  • Veygo provides comprehensive cover to those customers, meaning that the car owner’s existing insurance policy and no claims bonus is safe if the person borrowing the car has an accident.  
  • All Veygo’s insurance is available by the hour, day, week or month and customers can get a quote in minutes.    
  • All backed by Admiral, voted Best UK Car Insurance Provider six years in a row by The Personal Finance Awards.   

Whilst our mission today is to put people in control of their own journey our ambition is to create a youth lifestyle brand that take us beyond car insurance.  Disruption is in our DNA and we’re always relentlessly looking for collaborative self-starters and innovators with the desire to challenge how we do things today; to push the boundaries and drive us through our onward growth journey.  Veygo’s culture is vibrant, open, creative, and disruptive.

What you'll be doing

All of our engineers are truly full-stack: We have no time for knowledge silos and we do everything we can to make sure our engineers are able to work on anything, and everything. A typical day in engineering can mean creating infrastructure using Terraform, debugging the inner-workings of one of our Python applications or writing a shiny new React component for use in our quote engine.

Our pace is fast and the days are varied, but the work is energetic and very rewarding. Expect to collaborate with other departments across the brand from marketing to customer service, and data to claims.

Main Duties

  • Develop backend services, using Python and Django
  • Develop modern front end websites, using TypeScript, React and Redux
  • Build Infrastructure, using Terraform and cloud services such as AWS
  • Deploy your code to production and support it
  • Design REST APIs
  • Champion best practices like automated testing and continuous deployment
  • Share knowledge by pair programming, show and tell sessions
  • Play an active role in agile ceremonies like retrospectives and sprint planning

Skils and Experience Required

  • All skills/experience listed in Graduate/Junior level role
  • Familiar with Agile development practices
  • 1+ years experience with unit testing
  • 2+ years commercial experience with software development of either front-end or backend development
  • 1+ years experience of pair programming or mentoring
  • Ability to breakdown and solve problems

Salary, Benefits and Work-Life Balance

At Admiral, we are proud to be a diverse business where we put our people and customers first. We have great benefits to ensure employees have a great work-life balance; it's one of the reasons we’re consistently voted one of the Sunday Times Best Big Companies to Work For in the UK.

All colleagues will receive 33 days holiday (including banks holidays) when they join us, and this will increase with length of service, up to a maximum of 38 days (including banks holidays). You also have the option to buy or sell up to five days of annual leave in addition to your allocation.
