We are a Polish branch of a fast-growing InsurTech product company from Silicon Valley - Hippo Insurance. Our mission is to revolutionize home insurance in the USA from IoT monitoring devices to our industry-leading software. 

How do we want to get there? We need top-notch talent like you! 

Putting a lot of effort into hiring top-tier devs, designers, PMs, and QAs, is a proof we care a lot about tech experience, the attitude, human approach, and what we could call “culture fit.” 

“SwingDev is all about people” - yes, it may sound a bit cliche. But whether we're writing code or just hanging out, we know that people are at the heart of everything we do. We like to have a good time and keep things light, even when we're tackling big projects. We could brag about what’s making us special, but we’ve boiled it down to two key ingredients: mature, companionable people who, rather than compete, prefer to inspire and have each other’s backs; a culture of trust, empathy, and positivity that keeps us together, lets us interact as teammates and friends, and truly enjoy the ride.

So if you're a Back-end Developer with Node.js looking to shake things up and have a good time while you're at it, you’ve come to the right place.
