Yago (ex-Seraphin): Background & ambition ⭐️

Yago (ex-Seraphin) is the first digital insurance broker in Belgium. Our mission is to revamp and simplify insurances. We do this by allowing our clients to compare, buy and manage their insurance contracts on a single platform and wherever they are.

‘Insurance finally made simple’

Last year we raised capital for an amount of 2M€ to finance our geographical and horizontal development.

We have the ambition to place ourselves as the reference of online insurance and are therefore currenlty looking for a Vue.js champion to help us keep building the insurance platform of tomorrow.

We have recently entered new markets (Flanders) to power our expansion and are constructing new digital products for our clients. A yet-to-develop technology will fuel these products. In the months and years to come, you will have a crucial role in shaping and implementing this technology and custom library.

Your mission 🎯

You will have, among many other things, the opportunity to participate in:- the development of Yago (ex-Seraphin)’s platform- improving the client’s advice and shopping process,- participating in the creation of our new client space- improving our internal SaaS- the scaling and structuring of our Vue.js component library

To be noted is the fact that we are currenlty developing our own Vue.js component library (obviously it’s in Vue.js, hence the Job title 😄). You will hold a key position in the construction, maintenance, and scalability of this sw-library (sw stands for YagoWeb) 💪.

In the context of your work, you will be in direct contact with:

  • The CTO (direct manager)
  • The tech team
  • The product designer
  • The product team

Tech environment 💻

At Yago (ex-Seraphin), we take pride in having an exceptionally well-maintained technology: 94% test coverage, A-grade code quality, monitoring, CI/CD, linting, static code analysis + a very well-maintained doc for all our processes and architecture (on Gitbook). We are a 7 team members’ crew, from various backgrounds and who all share the ❤ for good code and well crafted features !

The current front-end stack of Yago (ex-Seraphin) is divided in two parts:

  • Legacy (~35 -40% of the front-end codebase). Where we use Sass & BEM and Bootstrap. The whole front-end is based on Rails (ERB). Though no new investment is made on that part of the codebase - we are progressively migrating everything towards our new way of doing things. This part is to be fully decommissioned.
  • Our current way of doing things: VueOnRails & Tailwind 🎉. VueOnRails is an in-house developed framework that allows Rails to stay in command while using Vue.js’ power on the front-end. It’s like working within a SPA without worrying about the API nor routing part. We believe that javascript should be used only when needed. Thus we use classic HTML for static content (ERB Rails syntax) and plug Vue.js components only where required. If the page needs to be 100% dynamic → it is then powered by a Vue.js page.
