Happens is on a mission to reinvent how insurance is bought, owned and used. As a customer-centric tech company, we create an insurance experience that is smart, smooth, and easy.
At Happens, you’ll be working with a group of ambitious people, who get a kick out of moving fast and delivering great customer value. We surround ourselves with brilliant, motivated, and creative people who are filled with positive energy.
Unlike large insurance companies, we are flexible and efficient. We don’t care much about titles and hierarchy and instead focus on innovation, bold moves, and challenging the status quo. We believe in having an open-minded atmosphere, collective goals and a strong feedback culture to nourish everyone's blooming.
Happens is seeking an experienced fullstack developer who will work closely with the rest of the startup team including CTO, designer, and product manager to keep the product in line with the company's strategy. You’ll build and own back-end systems as well as customer-facing experiences. You’ll develop and maintain business-critical services and APIs.
Who’s our dream candidate? At Happens, we’re looking for candidates who are passionate about every aspect of frontend and backend development, from building the right components’ APIs to ensuring our state is immutable, building pixel-perfect animations, and ensuring our pages render super fast. You enjoy a little flexibility in your work. Our growth means there are constantly new things to work on every day, as such it’s likely that you’ll often be working across the board on new and exciting projects.
Website - Build, maintain and optimize web features, landing pages and UI components focused on providing an immersive user experience.
Acquisition - Build new functionality and optimize existing features with the goal of increasing conversion and bring more people as Happens users.
Activation - Increase the chance for first time visitors to create an account and start using the platform
Engagement - Engaging with and bringing customers back, with new and exciting features rollouts and customer education.
Analytics - Implement new ways of collecting and visualizing data on user experience.
Data modeling - Maintain and adopt our data models to meet new business demands. Develop our current CMS and APIs accordingly.
Evolve - Identify and implement fullstack projects that align with organizational goals. At Happens we welcome new ideas and we know what it means to evolve.
Autonomous — You have the product team with whom you can discuss project difficulties, but you will be responsible for the development of several projects, which is why it is important that you are self-motivated and able to drive your work forward on your own and make necessary decisions.
Responsibility-taking — You go outside your area of responsibility to solve problems that affect the organization. You also have a great sense of responsibility for your own tasks and ensure that they are completed.
Results oriented — Output is everything in a startup, so you like to identify, set and work towards your own goals that are challenging, realistic, clear and in line with the organization's goals.
