We are an insurtech company where smart people can see the impact of their work as we tackle meaningful problems together. We think it’s fun to disrupt an industry that has been slow to change. But we aren’t shaking things up for the sake of change, we’re here to solve big problems using technology and an innovative approach to improve how small business owners access insurance. Like our small business clients, we are a diverse team of builders, dreamers, and entrepreneurs, so at the heart of every decision we make is the idea that if it doesn’t serve our clients, it doesn’t serve us. We hire passionate people who like to work hard, yet we also know that life exists outside the office. Small businesses are the backbone of the economy; talented team members are the backbone of Pie. We are pie-oneering a whole new approach to insurance.

      • Deep knowledge of procedural programming languages such as C# or Java, network protocols, specifically HTTP, and JSON.  We are a .NET Core shop.
      • Strong knowledge of NoSQL databases, specifically MongoDB, Web Sockets, messaging systems, specifically RabbitMQ.

Why IDS?

Today’s virtual training environments are segmented and simplistic—the opposite of the real-world’s complex and integrated cyber battlefield. When even the most subtle input can influence every other facet of an operation, the one-dimensional training provided to our armed forces is not only outdated, it flat-out fails to equip them to outpace the operational tempo of the rapidly-evolving multi-domain battlefield. In the virtual arena, new threats emerge every day. IDS provides the tools for warfighters and cyber operators not just to prepare for them, but to anticipate the risks and to be ready for them when they arrive.

Social Media Environment and Internet Replication (SMEIR™), a product of IDS International Government Services, is a digital training solution that provides a full-range, free-play, immersive, realistic and scalable operational practice environment in which warfighters simultaneously train on full-spectrum cyberspace operations and social media analytics during integrated and multi-dimensional exercises.

IDSI uses Slack, Jira and Git for project and software management. Our main office is in Arlington, VA with remote opportunities available for the right candidate.   

Responsibilities:

  • Use software development languages including Javascript, Node.js, SQL and tools to write, edit, maintain, and test computer software as part of a synthetic cyberspace training environment.
  • Follow the software development lifecycle (SDLC) to plan, design, build, test, and deploy software applications, ranging from websites and mobile applications to web applications, video games, and back end API architecture.
  • In addition to creating new software, improve and maintain the working order of existing software.

Required Qualifications:

  • Minimum 3 years professional experience with:

    • MongoDB
    • React.js
    • Docker
    • Kubernetes
  • Experience with Scrum/Agile development methodologies.
  • Dev/Ops Experience with Linux, BASH, Python.

IDS’s competitive benefit package starts you off out on the right foot. Eligibility begins day one.

We also provide some flexibility for daily schedules to accommodate one’s personal obligations to home and family life.

We recognize that working remotely isn’t always easy; the remote work model encourages independent thinking but requires increased professional accountability and self-discipline.  We are an outcome-focused team and work to get the job done. We champion a culture of transparency and openness.  

While travel is part of the job requirement to service clients and team build, we ensure it is asked for and planned as thoughtfully as possible.  As a leader within the company, you can expect to travel 2-3x a month for 1-3 days on average to for client and team meetings.
