Senior Software Engineer, Backend (EHI)

HOVER uses patented technology making it possible for anyone with a smartphone camera to create an interactive 3D model, complete with detailed measurements and powerful design features. The data produced is extremely valuable as it generates a single source of truth for the physical world allowing for more veracity throughout the home improvement and insurance processes. We’ve found an incredibly strong product-market fit across exterior home improvement, insurance, and financial services. What's the secret sauce? Cutting edge technology, an exceptional culture, and a commitment to our values (Think. Do. Serve.).

With our team of investors, including Google Ventures and Menlo Ventures, HOVER is committed to continuing our success and facilitating growth. We believe there is strength in diversity so we hire skilled and passionate people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Why HOVER wants you:

HOVER is looking for a strong engineer motivated by scaling a new platform of products that unlocks a major revenue stream for a series C company.

You’d be joining our Exterior Home Improvement (EHI) team - a team charged with building a new platform of products to compliment HOVER’s powerful measurements product. The EHI team is key to unlocking HOVER’s growth and is dedicated to building the best product of its kind on the market. The EHI product has a solid market fit and we are ready to start scaling our team and users.

The EHI team consists of driven and eager-to-learn engineers with a wide range of experience. We are committed to being at the forefront of pushing the technological envelope at HOVER. As a group of growth-minded teammates we don't take ourselves too seriously, enjoy close collaboration, and care about the success of the products we build. On this team, we believe that it's better to:

  • make many small moves than few large ones
  • reduce knowledge silos than optimize for short-term gains
  • spend our Fridays learning instead of squeezing out more commits
  • always be growing instead of doing what is familiar
  • encourage team creativity in solutions rather than be prescriptive

You will contribute by: 

By month 1, you will have:

  • Understood our team's mission as well as our development cycle
  • Achieved a high-level understanding of our codebase
  • Delivered high-quality code through pair programming on a major feature currently limiting our ability to scale our platform

By month 3, you will have:

  • Architected feature(s) that help validate or challenge product assumptions along our path to capture more of the market
  • Established a smooth development cadence by working with Product and Design

By month 6, you will have:

  • Led the development of several features that will lay the foundation for our team to become a major revenue driver for HOVER
  • Mentored other engineers of all levels on best practices to ensure we continue to move fast
  • Elevated the productivity of EHI's engineering team through tactfully challenging the status quo, making incremental improvements, and finding the right tools for the job

Your background includes

  • 4+ years building backend applications with at least 2+ years of Ruby/Rails experience
  • Experience or interest in working with a modern frontend framework (React, Vue, etc)
  • Extensive experience with all aspects of testing fullstack applications: unit, functional, feature, and end-to-end
