What might surprise people to learn about Penn Mutual?

Although we’re not known for being a tech company, we’ve actually been in the data biz for 172 years.

We’ve always embraced the use of cutting edge technology to bring our products to market. Currently we’re utilizing everything from big data technology like Cassandra and Spark to Blockchain and Machine Learning. We’re constantly exploring uses for new technology to creatively improve the user experience of our products and safeguard customer assets.

 

What are your company values?

First and foremost, we’re always connected to the ‘why’ behind what we do, which is to “help people protect with what they care most—their family.”

As a workplace, we value intellectual curiosity, integrity and collaboration. We’re also big on ethics and doing the right thing. As we often say, “there’s no right way of doing the wrong thing.”

 

What does Penn Mutual look for in prospective employees?

The technologists who are successful here are curious about the business. They’re not purely technical, they also genuinely care about the work and how they can improve people’s lives.

We’re looking for collaborators. People who are passionate and self-motivated, but willing to work together, share knowledge and bring new ideas to the table.

 

What kind of tech skills do you expect candidates to have?

We’re a heavy data shop, so we look for people with experience in Enterprise Services, API interfaces and asynchronous processing.

Developers ideally have the following experience under their belt:

  • Front-end developers: React, NodeJS, Elastic Search
  • Junior developers: Solid Java skills, basic and associated like Spring; XML experience; some experience with API (3-5 years)

 

How do you encourage growth and learning?

People own their own development and we encourage continuous learning. It’s informal, but there’s a lot of freedom for people to experiment. We support associates who want to attend trainings and conferences, or to get certified in new areas of technology.

We give our people the autonomy to try out and play with things. No one gets slapped down for anything.
