Head of Engineering


This is a Full-time position in New York, NY posted August 29, 2021.

Insurance is a promise to be there for the worst day of your life. 

At Attune, it’s a promise to small businesses and the communities built around them. 

Getting an insurance quote is painful for small business owners.

It takes weeks of back-and-forth with brokers and carriers.

Skipping the broker isn’t ideal, either.

Attune is building modern tools to make getting insurance easy, partnering with brokers for the best outcomes for our small business customers.

Our engineering team is a friendly, agile, and collaborative group with varied backgrounds.

We augment Attune’s insurance expertise with the design and development skills of a seasoned startup team.

Attune is backed by Two Sigma, AIG, and Hamilton Insurance Group, so you’ll have the ownership and excitement of working at a growing startup, along with the resources and stability of an established company.

You will work closely with other engineers, product managers, designers, insurance experts, data scientists, and customer care team members to make small business insurance faster and easier.
