Job Description

Haven Technologies is a new quote-to-claim insurtech platform for the life, disability and annuities industries that allows carriers to leverage our innovative platform as their own. Through our SaaS model, our solutions, including new business, in-force management and product development, are available to everyone.

We believe in making life better, together. Our time-tested, purpose-built technology has already delighted customers through digital experiences, transformed complex, advisor-driven businesses, and launched new products with speed to help more people access life insurance. Don’t take our word for it, hear directly from our team.

But Haven Technologies is not just about technology. Our people and culture make our product. We believe magic happens when people have an opportunity to work with amazing colleagues and build things that matter.

As a team made of over 300+ dreamers, possibility-seekers and difference-makers, we are focused on taking on challenging problems to create simple, more accessible, and more customer centric solutions. We’re located in New York’s Flatiron District and in case you’re wondering, yes, we provide free snacks. Cold brew too. If you’re creative, professional and kind, we’d love to hear from you. Curious about what it’s like to work with us? Read about our culture and values here!

Let’s change the future of life insurance. Together.


You will be joining a small, experienced Information Security team tasked with guiding and carrying out Haven Tech’s security agenda. You will be collaborating closely with your team, as well as working hand-in-hand with employees across the broader organization to ensure that security best practices are a standard part of the way our company operates. In addition to strong technical skills, this role will require out-of-the-box thinking and thoughtfulness about how and why you do what you do. The job will be varied and challenging, using the latest tools, techniques, and apps. The ideal candidate will require experience in SRE, with a security based mindset or feeling inclined to get into the security space.

• You have a passion for technology and a drive to constantly iterate and improve your ecosystem.
• Your experience covers a gamut of modern tools, systems and patterns which have helped you achieve automation, productivity and stability in an organization.
• You care about up time, SLA’s, security and availability while minimizing risk to our customers.
• You have consistently made choices that positively impact all of engineering. Engineering excellence is a collective set of choices we make as technologists-whether to increase code coverage or ship a product on time, investing in developer productivity vs saving $$$.
• You have the ability to balance tactical items against long term value. You demonstrate strong judgment across a multitude of situations and drive decision making taking all factors into account.
• You can work and live at various levels, zoom-in and out as the situation demands. You stay connected to the details while possessing the ability to see the big picture.
• You have hands-on experience across various platforms and can navigate your way across a complex and rapidly changing technology landscape and stay on top of industry trends.

• BS in Computer Science or Related
• 2+ years experience as a SRE/Infrastructure/Security

• Understanding code best practices and git versioning
• Experience in explaining complex problems and solutions to people
• Experience in investigating security issues in a large distributed cloud environment
• Authorized to work in the US with or without sponsorship
• Excellent communication and work ethic

• AWS Security tooling (AWS Config, GuardDuty, WAF/FMS, Inspector, Macie, IAM)
• API Gateway, Secrets Management
• Gitlab pipelines
• Kubernetes knowledge and security
• CIS Benchmarking experience

We have a stellar team of co-workers, a really cool office, a flexible hybrid work schedule, and lots of fun activities. Oh yeah, and we pay competitive base salaries and we reward performance. Our salary structure is commensurate with experience. In addition, you will be eligible to participate in our comprehensive benefits program including medical insurance and 401(K).

We believe that one of the benefits to working here is our people and culture! We’re proud to share that we’ve been consistently named a top workplace by Great Places to Work (#6 Best Workplaces in New York) and BuiltIn (Top 10 Best Midsize Company to Work For in NYC)!

Target annual salary for this role is $115,000 to $130,000 + a bonus opportunity of up to 100% of annual base salary + benefits (including medical, dental, vision, accident and life insurance, paid days off, 401(k), and education reimbursement).
