Financing + Payments Infrastructure for the $300B Commercial Insurance Market
Ascend, is building a financing and payments infrastructure for commercial insurance (which is not as boring as it seems). It's a $300bn market with 40% of premiums still paid via paper checks !😱 Today's solutions we're built 40 years ago for pen and paper insurance sales and as a result are under-penetraed and inefficeint. These incumbent workflows are very tedious, manual & offline for both customers & agencies. Our solution provides a turn-key (API & white-labeled) solution for MGAs, agencies, insurance platforms & carriers to offer financing and modern payment options to their customers.
Ascend has raised $5.5m in venture capital from world-class technology investors including First Round Capital, Susa Ventures, FirstMark Capital, South Park Commons, and Box Group.
We’re looking for a senior engineer to join our team and help us solve these complex technical challenges. The ideal candidate loves to learn, is highly-determined to grow with the business, and is motivated by new and unqiue problems. This person will be a key member of both our engineering and overall team so will have a large impact on the technical and cultural direction of the business.

Tech Stack & Processes
After an initial call where you can meet the (whole) team, we can discuss what a good process looks like for you. As an example, we are looking for builders so we would like candidates to build a take home project on their own time. The take home project is very similar to something you might build day to day as an engineer at Ascend. Once completed, we'd run through the implementation together to see design & technical decisions they made. We use rails internally but you could use a web language & framework of your choice.
Ascend is committed to creating and fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. This is not just because it's "something we should do" but because we deeply believe a diverse workplace that team members from underrepresented backgrounds results in a better, stronger business and culture. Here are some ways we're committed to building such a workplace:
