Salesforce Developer at Newfront Insurance
San Francisco, CA, US / Remote
From the Lloyd’s of London coffee shop to the moon landing, every venture relies on insurance. The $1 trillion insurance industry is fundamental to our economy and society, but remains stuck in the stone age. Incumbents rely on antiquated pen-and-paper process and there's a huge opportunity to transform it through technology. At Newfront, we're building software to supercharge insurance brokers and help them deliver a delightful experience to clients.
 
While we’re a technology-driven company, we believe that people and trusted relationships matter. Newfront believes in empowering people rather than "disrupting" them. Our singular mission is to create the future of work for this massive industry.
 
We believe breakout growth creates breakout opportunities and diversity drives innovation.

FROM THE TEAM: We are looking for a Salesforce Developer to contribute to the next generation of technology for insurance agents and brokers. The ideal candidate is an innovative thinker and a great communicator. You should be excited to learn and willing to work both independently and as a team. While working individually most of the time, this candidate will rely on guidance from a Salesforce Architect, as well as other IT team members.
