You must be a self-starter and able to perform with minimal supervision while working in a team environment, communicating effectively with developers and product managers.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a growing company that is experiencing explosive growth. We are an NYSE listed software company with over 200 successful implementations and 100+ Property/Casualty (general) insurance customers.
