About Reserv

Reserv is an insurtech creating and incubating cutting-edge AI and automation technology to bring efficiency and simplicity to claims. Founded by insurtech veterans with deep experience in SaaS and digital claims, Reserv is venture-backed by Bain Capital and Altai Ventures and began operations in May 2022. We are focused on automating highly manual tasks to tackle long-standing problems in claims and set a new standard for TPAs, insurance technology providers, and adjusters alike.

We have ambitious (but attainable!) goals and need people who can work in an evolving environment. If building a leading TPA and the prospect of tackling the long-standing challenges of the claims role sounds exciting, we can’t wait to meet you.


Who you are

As an engineer in a well-funded seed-stage start-up, you will be defining our growth potential for years to come. Reserv will be depending on you and your team to build a beautiful, powerful product from a user-story driven front-end all the way to a scalable back-end as well as  a robust integration layer that allows its customers to connect seamlessly to your product. For this role, we are seeking engineers with strong Python and data engineering skills with a curiosity for systems, a proclivity for end-to-end ownership of features, and an ability to both run independently and collaborate well with fellow engineers and business-side teammates. If you are ready to mold the vision for Reserv’s technology, join us on the journey.


What we need

  • Work with our tech stack: Python, DBT, AWS (Lambda, ECS, Docker), Postgres, Ruby on Rails etc.
  • Help distill the core interactions a customer of Reserv will need in order to be successful in using our product, from our data science models, our data dashboards, to our core operational software
  • Ship code that productizes the work of the analytics team, including proprietary ML algorithms, customer facing dashboards and operational alerts
  • Envision and build scalable architecture for our analytics stack, one that allows rapid iteration and deployment of data science solutions as well as elegant access for our customers
  • Commit on your first day, and deploy code continuously
  • Support developers and data scientists at customer companies
  • As we scale our product & engineering teams, collaborate closely with our product ops, design, and sales teams, as well as mentor junior engineers
  • Communicate ideas and specifications through detailed, precise writing
  • Influence the culture, values, and processes of a growing engineering team
  • Enjoy and have fun being creative and thinking outside of the box. You will need to draw on analogous situations you’ve worked on before, but we are not traversing well-traveled roads. “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!”


  • 6-8 years of experience as an individual contributor with experience using modern analytics and programming languages and data focused back-end frameworks
  • Have a strong demonstrated ability to ship high-quality products, both at work and outside of work. We love engineers that build side-projects or contribute to open-source repos
  • A passion for building intuitive technology and a thirst for learning
  • Able to think through customer requirements and prioritize what is a must-have, nice-to-have, or irrelevant
  • Have a strong technical skillset but also the willingness and ability to take over tasks outside your core competency


  • Generous health-insurance package with nationwide coverage, vision, & dental
  • 401(k) retirement plan with employer matching
  • Unlimited vacation time with minimum time-off – we want our employees fresh, healthy, happy, and energized!
  • Generous family leave policy
  • Work from anywhere to facilitate your work life balance paired with frequent, regular corporate retreats to build team cohesion, reinforce culture, and have fun
  • Your choice of Windows or Apple laptop, large second monitor, and other quality-of-life equipment you may want. Technology is something that should make your life easier, not harder!

At Reserv, we value diversity and believe that a variety of perspectives leads to innovation and success. We are actively seeking candidates who will bring unique perspectives and experiences to our team. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and encourage those from underrepresented groups to apply. If you believe you are a good fit for this role, we would love to hear from you!
