About Us

Coalition was founded by repeat entrepreneurs, Joshua Motta (Cloudflare) and John Hering (Lookout), with a mission to solve cyber risk. We believe that cyber risk is among the most pervasive risks facing society, and we've built the first holistic solution to it by combining free cyber security tools to help prevent loss, expert response to mitigate it, and up to $10M of insurance coverage to recover from it. Our technology platform encompasses insurance, threat intelligence, patch and vulnerability scanning, DDoS mitigation, ransomware protection, and more. Coalition's team of engineers, data scientists, security researchers, incident responders, and insurance personnel protect customers before, during, and after cyber incidents. Our insurance products are backed by Swiss Re, one of the world's largest (re)insurers, and Argo Group. Our customers are in every industry, and all across the US. We are based in San Francisco, although you'll find some of our team in more exotic places.

If you enjoy solving problems at scale (with lots riding on it) we hope you'll consider joining us.

About the role

As an insurance company doing business in all fifty states, we manage great quantities of automatically generated documents and business logic. We are looking for an independent self-starter to help us translate existing insurance papers into LaTeX-templated documents that interact with our insurance business logic. Practically, your work will involve writing LaTeX, Python3.6, and interacting with AWS (S3/Postgres). This is a specialized back-end engineering role, though specific responsibilities will expand over time and experience to include working on the breadth of insurtech platform features/services.


We are looking for an entry level engineer with a solid base of computer science acumen. We don't expect you to be an expert in our entire stack, but we do expect the following:

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent

  • In-depth knowledge of LaTeX

  • One year of full-time experience working with Python

  • Understanding of full stack software development specific to web applications: hosting environments, web servers, data models, server-side APIs, and client-side JavaScript

Bonus Points

  • Familiarity with our specific stack (Ubuntu, Postgres, Python 3.6, SQLAlchemy, Flask, Twisted, React)

  • Experience with deployment automation and scalable infrastructure, especially AWS, Travis and Sentry

  • Knowledge of other useful web technologies: Redux, Webpack, ES6, TypeScript, etc.

  • Experience building user-facing products and working on UX/UI problems.

  • Understanding of HTTP / REST security concepts, including common vulnerabilities

  • Solid technical skills in both information security architecture and penetration testing
