Hover is a software platform offering measurement, visualization, estimation, and ordering solutions to the construction and insurance markets. Hover uses patented technology making it possible for anyone with a smartphone camera to create an interactive 3D model, complete with detailed measurements and powerful design features. The data produced is extremely valuable as it generates a single source of truth for the physical world allowing for more veracity throughout the home improvement and insurance processes. We’ve found an incredibly strong product-market fit across construction, insurance, and newly emerging, with Homeowners. What's the secret sauce? Cutting edge technology, an exceptional culture, and a commitment to our values (Think. Do. Serve.).

With our team of investors, including Google Ventures, Menlo Ventures, The Home Depot, and leading Insurance carriers such as Travelers, State Farm, and Nationwide, Hover is committed to continuing our success and facilitating growth. We believe there is strength in diversity so we hire skilled and passionate people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Why HOVER wants you:

HOVER is looking for a seasoned software engineer to join the Insurance team. As a passionate group of engineers, we are looking for someone who is similarly motivated to build great products that are valued by customers. An ideal candidate will be excited to contribute to our frontend systems, our mobile applications, and provide technical leadership for the Insurance team. This is a great opportunity to get exposure to multiple systems and move the business forward in novel ways as you’ll be working on new products and capabilities focused on driving user value.

The Insurance Engineering team is made up of backend, mobile, and fullstack developers who are solving problems for our Insurance customers. Features for these customers span our website, mobile apps, and backend systems which requires a strong working knowledge of common front-end frameworks such as React and React Native in addition to knowledge of RESTful APIs and GraphQL. In addition to contributions at the technical level, the team is looking for someone who can work cross-functionally with stakeholders and advocate for their work to both technical and non-technical audiences.

A successful candidate will be able to hit the ground running and provide strong leadership on react native work and provide technical leadership for the team. Whether it’s writing RFCs/tech specs or writing code (via pair programming or solo), most of your time will be spent contributing across the stack to build innovative products that delight our users. We take feedback from our customers seriously so you will be working closely with Product Managers and Designers to continuously improve the user experience. As you iterate, you’ll work closely with your fellow engineers to architect new systems, refactor code under test, and continuously deploy code to production.

The Insurance team works primarily on features that support our Insurance customer’s workflows which span from starting jobs in external Insurance platforms, having Homeowners capture their own for underwriting and claims, supporting insurance adjusters work in capturing the data they need to capture a claim. For the Insurance industry, a user's worst day has to be our best so it’s important to come with strong empathy for the customer experience and a consciousness that our systems need to work in situations that are not optimal. For us, this means that we have to ship features that are usable and delightful as well as a strong emphasis on offline support for business critical functionality. Some recent projects include improving our Homeowner connect features, helping pros better capture the photos they need, and new integrations with the software platforms our Insurance customers use today.

  • 10+ years development experience in front end applications using Javascript/Typescript and React Native.
