Job Description


WE ​are Slice Labs​ (Slice). We’re building a team of innovators and disruptors to help us “un-fix”
insurance to meet the demands of an on-demand world. We are disrupting the idea that
insurance needs to be a fixed product, with a fixed term, with fixed coverage. We believe it can
and should be all digital and on-demand, so customers get only the coverage they need, right
when they need it. We are focused on ensuring our products provide a positive, individualized
customer experience. Our smaller teams invite broader thinking and problem solving, where
nobody is pigeonholed into a predetermined role. We work in an open, supportive,
environment that values and promotes inclusiveness, innovation and collaboration. It’s
fast-paced, dynamic and fulfilling.

Our Software Development Team is focused on building modern, high-performance, scalable
and fault-tolerant solutions. We work with modern technologies enabling delivery of a

successfully designed and built efficient and reusable front-end modules that have driven
