Job Description

Problem we are solving

Insurance – we all need it, most people are confused by it and few really “get it”. Insurance products are hard to understand and don’t always seem to cover what you expect and on top of this buying insurance isn’t easy. In a world where we can get most things at the click of a button, buying insurance is usually still an offline or late-1990s-digital nightmare, with confusing forms and a horrible customer experience.

Existing legacy IT-systems make it hard for insurers to bring out new products quickly, to sell them in digital channels, to integrate 3rd party services and to test what works and what doesn’t, in a low cost way.

KASKO’s Solution

We offer a digital insurance platform, which acts as a middle layer between insurers and the digital world. This makes it easy for insurers:

to create new insurance products
offering best-in-class digital customer journeys
connect to 3rd party APIs
build in a sandbox or fully integrated with existing systems
We can do this in a matter of weeks, rather than the traditional insurance speed of months or years.

KASKO’s platform empowers the multitrillion-dollar insurance industry to embark on the digital revolution that other industries have gone through already. It allows insurers to build better products for consumers and allows digital business of all types to work closer with insurers to deliver these products.

Who We Are

We’re backed by some of the UK’s top investors incl. Seedcamp (Backers of: TransferWise, PropertyPartner and Revolut) and Chris Slater (Co-founder Simply Business, 500m exit).

We are currently expanding our awesome business team.

We also believe that you need to like and respect the people you work with and have some fun together. Thus, at least every quarter we will pick a European city and an Airbnb and meet up to have some work but mostly fun 🙂 We’re a diverse team from England, Germany, Holland, and Latvia with background in engineering, strategy consulting, enterprise sales, economics etc.

The Job

We’re looking for a junior project manager in London or Hamburg that is the face to our insurance partners during the implementation and live stages of our various products.

The day-to-day activities are a mix between the job of a business analyst & management consultant. You will engage with senior product managers from insurance companies as well as distribution partners in scoping and delivering the product and project scope on time and above expectation.

You will learn a great deal about the art of project management, operations, business development and pick up all aspects around running a startup and scaling a business.

We expect you to be capable of taking large areas of responsibility and independent delivery. Challenges include:

scoping a product/project
creating a project plan
managing the client along the milestones
proactively identifying problem areas and potential solutions
running the professional communication with the client
engaging with our product team to discuss features and delivery timelines
suggest and scope additional features to the platform
expanding the relationship and product range with our insurance partners
scout and support business development activities in general
support and structure operational activities

This job is a great opportunity to become part of a well-funded growing business during the scale-up phase. Career progression is far greater than in a regular (corporate) analyst or consultant roles and the responsibilities and learning opportunities are far greater and more varied. We are a bunch of cool (well mummy says so), smart people on a mission to profoundly innovate the insurance landscape, creating something amazing with a great team. If you can prove you got what it takes to fulfil your role with verve, there’s an incredible journey ahead of you.

We want someone who is independent and capable of taking responsibility for large areas of delivery.

Benefits

We believe our early-stage team members are essential to shaping this business. As such we can offer an attractive package of salary and equity (based on experience and performance) as well as unlimited holiday policy where everyone takes responsibility for their own time off.

We recognise you want to learn more and progress, that’s why everyone at KASKO gets a learning budget they can use for courses and conferences they want to attend.
