Extend - Data Platform Engineer

paid / full-time / remote


About Extend:

Extend is modernizing the $100 billion-per year extended warranty and protection plan industry using cutting edge technology, and top notch customer service. With a $40M Series B round of funding, we are ready to continue to scale our organization.

Our API-first solution allows any merchant to offer extended warranties and protection plans, both online and offline, while also providing a merchant's end customers with a vastly improved and modern support experience that eliminates many of the issues customers face today with legacy underwriters.

We are a venture backed startup based in downtown San Francisco (and since COVID began, fully remotely) that is led by founders who have previously had multiple successful exits. Extend is simplifying the technology stack for the extended warranty industry, in the same way that Stripe did for online payments and Affirm did for consumer point of sale financing.
