Cloud Engineer

String and Key

Location: Remote - US only

Job Type: Full time


Our Company

String and Key is a research and development studio building digital platforms that will change the way people manage and protect their money. Our purpose is to empower every person to live life to the fullest, with the confidence of financial protection.

We are a team of math nerd strategists, user flow obsessed designers, result-driven developers, and epic storytelling marketers. We’re an entrepreneurial team that values doers, people who think outside the box, and those who are not afraid to experiment. We love what we do and take work-life balance and professional development as seriously as our products.

The first business we built is Wyshbox, which is a whole new way to talk about and sell life insurance to a younger audience. Customers build their own personalized policies around their “Wyshes” — the things that they want to happen, if anything happens to to them. From sending their kids to college to shooting their ashes into space - this isn’t your traditional insurance. It’s 100% online on the web, iOS, or android. No agents and no hassles.
