Full-Stack Developer

Full-stack developers at Zillion build core products and services. Our priorities are great customer experiences, excellent software design, and a healthy and curious engineering team dynamic.

As a new technology startup that's changing the insurance industry, Zillion leverages a variety of data sources to revolutionize the way customers interact with insurance. Zillion emphasizes customer delight at each interaction and strives to provide ease and transparency to a historically opaque industry.

Our full-stack developers wear many hats - we bounce across languages and disciplines including API design & implementation, greenfield web client applications, platform & devops, and integrations with external services. Engineers also have significant influence over technical and product decisions.

Zillion insists on a culture of curiosity and acceptance. We want our developers to bring different experience with them and share it constructively. Questions are always welcome, and mistakes happen. We provide support for professional development and community outreach, and we provide the structure to research and share information on new technologies.

Despite being a startup, we recognize that a happy team is a good team, and we strongly value work-life balance and family time.

Zillion Engineering is located in Chattanooga, TN. We prefer local candidates, but may consider remote in some cases. We like a flat team structure to keep us focused on success as a team. However, experience & progress in responsibilities are recognized & compensated accordingly.
