MassMutual DevOps Engineer in Boston, Massachusetts

Haven Life is an insurtech innovator at MassMutual that offers a new way to get life insurance online

that’s actually simple.

We combine the culture of a startup with the stability and backing of a Fortune 500 company to create an

environment that’s truly unique.

Our diverse team is composed of smart, collaborative people who think big, execute quickly and don’t

take themselves too seriously. The Boston engineering group within Haven Life is located near South

Station in the Leather District, and our team is focused on the mission of providing helpful financial

products to mid-market and underserved customers. In case you're wondering, yes, we provide free

snacks, and enthusiastic ping pong competition too.

If you’re creative, professional and kind, we’d love to hear from you.


Our DevOps team enables Haven Life to continually disrupt the Insurtech space. Our engineers build,

maintain and deliver infrastructure that enables product teams to ship industry leading and innovative

systems that make everyone feel good about life insurance. We work hard, we play hard and we also

laugh hard. We encourage taking risks and learning from our mistakes, but we also celebrate our wins all

as one team. Our group is always looking for ways to improve our delivery to production, stability at scale,

software automation, security, agility and helping our organization grow. No challenge is too big or too

small for our group. Our toolbox is never full. If you are excited about cloud technologies and helping
