Here at BGL Life we like to be different – we’ve sold life insurance products and services unique to the market since 2012. We’ve continued to change the narrative of life insurance to be less complex and replaced it with simplicity, speed and value, to allow our customers to obtain a quote in just 60 seconds and be covered in as little as 10 minutes! Our digital, technical and data capabilities are something to be proud of, and we recognise there’s still more to be done!

We’re focused on significant growth plans and have invested in several key strategic projects and initiatives over the next 12 months. As a Full-Stack Software Engineer, your role will be aiding the development and delivery of technical solutions and contributing to an evolving culture of innovation, enthusiasm and passion.

We’re a unique business division with a start-up feel, operating within an established fintech business that has clear goals to disrupt the markets we choose to operate in.  Key disruptive projects are, but not limited to:

  • Supporting with ongoing technical development and maintenance of our customer propositions and tools
  • Collaborating closely with our data and pricing team to optimise and enable even better pricing modelling capabilities
  • Working on a confidential and disruptive market leading approach with emphasis on customer experience and engagement

Your technical expertise and creativity will take our existing market-leading capabilities to the next level.

What will it take to be successful as a Full Stack Engineer?

Must have:
  • Experience using .Net
  • Working knowledge of the full web stack, from REST services and APIs to back-end web service frameworks
  • Cloud/AWS experience
  • Able to pick up new concepts and technologies, finding the best fit for the problem at hand
Nice to have, and highly advantageous:
  • Keen to test first (Unit test, Integration test and Functional), deploy often and pair programming
  • Experience working with JS frameworks, such as Angular, React, or Vue.js
  • Good understanding of object-oriented and SOLID / OWASP security principles
Whilst we think the above skills are preferential, we remain open to hear from applicants that come from various backgrounds who believe they have some transferable skills for consideration. We will continue to review and progress the most qualified and suitable individuals. We will consider applicants on either a Permanent or FTC basis.
