ISCS is currently seeking a Software Engineer to work with some of the industry's brightest minds deploying and supporting our advanced Web-based Property and Casualty Insurance automated software solution, SurePower Innovation®.

ISCS Overview:

ISCS is a fast-growing software company providing enterprise solutions to U.S. property and casualty insurance companies. We are technology and insurance experts who have developed a robust product that meets the needs of our target market and a strong set of methodologies to deliver and support it. Our solution is in high demand as insurers replace out-of-date systems with more quickly configurable technology to stay competitive. Unlike many enterprise software markets, we are seeing historically high numbers of major system purchases. 

We offer something rare in today's job market: growth and stability. Founded in 1994 and privately owned, ISCS has a history of revenue growth, consistent profitability, and solid reputation for successful implementations. We have an active R&D department that keeps our product highly competitive, and we are considered thought leaders in our industry niche on topics such as the use of cloud computing in insurance.

Our product, the SurePower Innovation® Policy Administration Suite, is a fully Web-based Java platform that meets the technical criteria that insurers are requiring in new systems. The modular system uses Web services and ACORD XML standards and can be deployed as a suite (with rules and workflow engines, policy administration, rating, reinsurance, claims, billing, accounting, data warehousing, document management, consumer and insurance agent self-service and more) or as a point solution, such as the claims module only. Our clients include personal, commercial and specialty insurers across the US.

We are looking to grow our company with highly motivated and team oriented individuals. We successfully leverage agile development methodology (using Scrum) and consider our combination of agile methods and our technology to be a strong differentiator for us in our market.

We offer a competitive comprehensive benefits program which includes four weeks paid time off and a 401K match.
