At Bold Penguin, we use a collection of tried-and-true principles to make everyday decisions about what we build and how we build it. These principles shape how we approach problems, how we run our technical operations, and how we efficiently scale our team.

Cliff Notes

A quick Q & A with Frank Lamantia about his work ethic. (He still has the same views now as CTO.)

We're passionate about our programmable interfaces.

Thinking about the future of commercial insurance.

Let's face it - commercial insurance isn't sexy. To own it, you need discipline.

Security, availability, and performance.

These matter a lot at Bold Penguin. DevOps is a real thing and security is top of mind.

Quality of life in testing.

On-Demand Test Environments make the developer experience a better place.

Use Cases

In order to upgrade an industry, you often need the biggest names to adopt your way of thinking. We are fortunate enough to have adoption from some names you've heard of and maybe some names you haven't. As an engineering organization, it is always important to us to think pragmatically and to develop technology with the customer in mind.

We started out in Columbus, Ohio (on a patio, actually) and have quickly expanded. Although our engineering team HQ is in a downtown skyrise, a growing number of teammates are remote throughout the United States.

Regardless of where you're at, if you're interested in joining a high-caliber team, please apply for any of the positions below.

Senior Software Engineer (Ruby)
