Orpheus Software is a Reading based insurance software startup developing full stack solutions for our partners in the insurance industry. Founded it 2014 by the team behind 1Cover, the largest Travel insurer in Australia and New Zealand, we set out to build a ground-up solution to keep customers front and centre of the insurance experience, and we then used this expertise to launch Hedgehog car insurance in the UK in 2018.

Our cutting-edge insurance platform is built primarily in Java following a multi-tiered service-oriented architecture deployed to AWS. It is an end-to-end solution encompassing online marketing and ecommerce; multi-channel customer service; claims and underwriting workflow; and Business Intelligence. It provides multiple public websites, portals, web services and online line-of-business applications in a High Availability scenario to customers globally, partners in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, and team members in our offices in Cardiff and Sydney.

Working with us is flexible, can be remote where appropriate, and we hope fun.  We're busy developing the products to serve these markets and constantly on the hunt for how to do things better, be that UX, pricing, claims management, processes or any of the other myriad things an insurance business would need from their tech.



We're looking for a number of motivated full stack Java developers, ideally with experience in Spring Boot, Java 11, and micro services architecture. We run a dev-ops ish setup, so being familiar with architectures and how things work when they're deployed in the real world would be helpful.

This role will be working on pricing management and real time feedback models for insurance pricing, providing APIs to 3rd parties to distribute these prices, along with our platform development for a wide array of functionality used by our insurance customers.

Our platform allows for, and we encourage, a constant release strategy as we develop and improve our systems and test out ideas to see if they work well or not. You'll be expected to develop and deploy quality code frequently, working directly with stakeholders, product and project managers, and the whole team to deliver rapid progress.
