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. After a $260M Series C financing round, we are ready to continue to scale our organization and grow beyond our $1.6B valuation.

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 that is led by founders who have previously had multiple successful exits. Extend is simplifying the technology stack for the extended warranty industry.

  • Experience in a DevOps engineering role

  • Knowledge of best practices around security roles/policies for AWS IAM
  • Experience working with observability tooling (CloudWatch, DataDog, etc)

  • Ability to perform in a high energy environment with dynamic job responsibilities and priorities
