Hello Crabi Candidate

Crabi is a startup Tapatía (we’re from Guadalajara) and we’re committed to creating a great car insurance experience. We want our customers and their beloved ones to feel safe behind the wheel, with a digital insurance company that got their backs. We want to change what it means to have car insurance.

The role

We’re on the hunt for what we like to call an Authentic Team Player: hands-on, pushing their team to grow, energetic from zero to launch, back, and to the moon.

Your mission will be to create from scratch, maintain and improve on the platform, tooling and systems that ensure Crabi’s engine works smoothly. Scalability, observability and constant improvement is what we expect to bring for our daily operations. Sometimes it will be just a matter of tidying up the house, some others we may need to shore up the house and rehaul the pillars and structural walls of our platform, everything while everyone is still living inside!

Your team is passionate about using technology for building scalable and enjoyable solutions; autonomous by nature, you will own your involvement, development, and continuous transformation of work, tools, and mind: Growth Never Stops!

  • Identify those tedious tasks that fill your day with unglorified work, and work your way through automating it.
  • Maintain infrastructure and service daily operation smoothly. This means you will work on implementing monitoring and tools and configurations required to make it happen.
  • Things will go wrong. When that happens, your knowledge and skills will bring things back up and running smoothly.
  • Evangelize your team, other engineering teams and the company overall on DevOps culture, best practices and working as one tight, well-calibrated machine.
  • Learning. You will get lots of these.

Venture Debt

Mezzanine funding / RBF / Mixed debt

It is common to see companies that are about to reach Series-A stage but need extra financing to keep improving their metrics and revenue in order to raise at convenient terms.

In LATAM there are very few financing options available for founders that need a fast, efficient and affordable product to reach their short-term goals without over-diluting themselves.

Venture Debt allows founders to continue growing their operations without an extra dilution; and to the fund it will provide shorter term returns and liquidity.
