We are a Polish branch of a fast-growing InsurTech product company from Silicon Valley - Hippo Insurance. Our mission is to revolutionize home insurance in the US, starting from IoT monitoring devices to our industry-leading software. 

How do we want to get there? We need a top-notch talent, just like you! 

Putting a lot of effort into hiring top-tier devs, designers, PMs, and QAs, is a proof that we care a lot about tech experience, the attitude, human approach, and what we could call „culture fit”.

„SwingDev a hippo company is all about people” - yes, it may sound a bit cliche. But whether we're writing code or just hanging out, we know that people are at the heart of everything we do. We like to have a good time and keep things light, even when we're tackling big projects. We could brag about what’s making us special, but we’ve boiled it down to two key ingredients: mature, companionable people who, rather than compete, prefer to inspire and have each other’s backs; a culture of trust, empathy, and positivity that keeps us together, lets us interact as teammates and friends, and truly enjoy the ride.

So if you're a Senior Back-end Developer looking to shake things up and have a good time while you're at it, you’ve come to the right place. 🚀

Job description:

  • You'll be architecting and implementing backends and their interactions with various data stores and other APIs (including 3rd party APIs).
  • You will be able to port code from our legacy system into service oriented architecture following Domain Driven Design.
  • You will work in an agile environment focusing on projects that are impactful on our business.
  • You'll support reliable databases and APIs for real-time automated decision-making. 
  • You’ll work in an agile environment focusing on projects that are impactful. 
  • You'll deploy your software using industry-standard tooling like Kubernetes clusters, and Lambda functions. 
  • You'll care deeply about security in everything you do and constantly raise the baseline of how we defend our user's data against external threats and themselves.  
  • You'll implement robust automated test suites to ensure high quality and low failure rate of delivered code. 
  • You'll work in a DevOps style to make sure Defense in Depth principles are followed and containers are as secure as humanly possible. 
  • You'll have huge creative freedom and ability to put your mark on the project, and you will take ownership and responsibility for what you do. 
  • You’ll have a lot of chances to develop your programming skills as well as learn a lot about how tech business is done in the US (if you want to). 


  • 4+ years of hands-on experience with Node.js.
  • If other backend language is your main tech-stack (eg. Java/ Python), but you know Node.js (and want to boost this skill!) - still, let’s talk!.
  • Good practical knowledge of at least one relational database system, e.g.PostgreSQL/MySQL/SQL Server.
  • Experience with microservices and system design patterns.
  • Ability to discuss and decide on software design and architecture. 
  • Independent problem solving.
  • Experience with implementing test pyramid (unit, integration, e2e tests).
  • Experience in utilizing good security practices.
  • Good command of English (written & spoken).
  • Readiness to learn and expand your skill set as required by ongoing projects. 

What you'll be using after joining us (we can teach you if needed):

  • Node.js, TypeScript, Nest.js,
  • Docker and container-based deployment technologies (e.g. Kubernetes/Fargate),
  • Automated software testing on unit/integration/end-to-end levels.

You will get extra points for:

  • Hands-on experience with TypeScript. 
  • Familiarity with Docker/Kubernetes/AWS deployment processes.
  • Experience with profiling and performance optimization. 
  • Experience in giving high quality feedback during code review.
