  • Overview

    One of Kansas City’s fastest-growing companies is looking for a Solution Architect to join its ranks. We are looking for someone who can come in with momentum and intention — ready to push our data, systems and engineering teams to greater successes (meaning: you’re a self-motivated nerd who loves analyzing and implementing new technologies). 

    Who we are: Spring Venture Group is a cutting-edge, direct-to-consumer sales and technology company in the insurance space. Powered by our proprietary technologies that combine sophisticated marketing, prescriptive analytics, and sales execution, we help thousands of seniors across the nation navigate the complex world of Medicare every day. 

    To top it off, we also have an award-winning company culture designed around cultivating and rewarding innovation. Our tech teams emphasize maintaining a start-up culture and an AWS environment, where employees are continually tasked with exploring new and exciting ways to do business. 

    About this role: We are looking for someone with a passion for growth — for themselves, their department, and their company. This position contributes to ensuring the productivity of the application and data engineering groups, through active innovation and collaboration. In this role, you will have the capacity to truly move the needle of success for SVG, working closely with the director of product delivery and the director of analytics support to implement real, company-wide change. 

    We proudly maintain developer autonomy in our engineering department. Employees are expected to be self-motivated and metric-driven; they’re encouraged to choose their own projects based on emerging trends and their deep understanding of business objectives. We need someone who can speak conceptually and then with very little direction, actualize and execute innovations. 

    If you are acutely attentive to detail and have a fierce desire to make a direct impact at an exciting, fast-moving tech company — we want to hear from you.
