We are looking for a driven software engineer to help us build cutting edge internal products. As an experienced innovator partnering with the growth and underwriting teams, this is a massive opportunity to help drive profitable growth.


You will be joining an innovative division of NEXT based in Atlanta: Data Labs. The mandate of Data Labs is to build software and data solutions that meaningfully impact marketing, funnel, risk, and servicing/claims experiences.


Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that some underrepresented people are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At NEXT, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.


What You’ll Do: 

  • Empower our team of data scientists to rapidly develop and deploy ML solutions.
  • Leverage software engineering best-practices to create and deploy data-intensive and machine learning inference products.
  • Understand the data and dig deep to extract actionable insights.
  • Think creatively and outside the box to answer desired experimental questions as well as exposing opportunities to create business value.
  • Work cross-functionally with marketing, engineering, product, senior management, and external partners.


What We Need: 

  • 3+ years of hands-on experience in the complete software development life-cycle.
  • Strong command of Python and the standard web development frameworks (e.g. Django, Flask, FastAPI)
  • Demonstrated experience building and maintaining rigorous CI/CD processes and unit and integration testing for a web service ecosystem 
  • Fluency with database technologies, SQL, and Python data packages (e.g., numpy, pandas, dask, pyspark, etc.)
  • Demonstrated experience taking ideas from concept phase through implementation.
  • Demonstrated experience deploying, maintaining, and monitoring models and applications to a cloud environment using tools like Docker and Kubernetes.
  • Demonstrated experience with software engineering best-practices, such as Test-Driven Development and continuous integration/deployment pipelining, (bonus points for experience with GitLab)
  • Experience with ML-oriented data pipelining tools (dbt, Airflow, Prefect, DVC, etc.)
  • Preferred 2+ years of experience in the insurance industry (strong fintech/lending experience will also be considered)
  • BS/MS in Computer Science, Statistics, Applied Math, or related areas from a top university
