About Cuvva

At Cuvva we’re building insurance the way it should be.

No more lengthy forms. No more waiting on hold. No more ‘computer says no’ attitude.

We’ve gone back to basics to build products that actually work for the customer.

We are super focused on creating a friendly, simple and hassle-free customer experience.

Don’t just take our word for it - check out our website (cuvva.com (workable.com/nr?l=https://www.cuvva.com/support) ), click on the speech bubble in the bottom right hand corner and chat to one of the team.


About the Cuvva team

We get it. Insurance isn’t traditionally considered exciting. At Cuvva we’re changing insurance and we are looking for people who find that as exciting as we do.

We're building a diverse team and we welcome people with different types of experience and outlooks.

You’ll really thrive at Cuvva if you have a ‘can do’ approach, are willing to try your hand at different things, have ideas and show initiative.


The Role

We're looking for a software engineer who has worked in high-growth, high-scale startups, who will operate with a high level of autonomy. You care deeply about building rock-solid infrastructure and delivering solutions which support your team and your product.

Aside from developing platform services, we expect you will also become involved with ops; contributing towards the maintenance of our servers, AWS account, etc.


Equality

We’re committed to ensuring that everyone has a fair chance to join Cuvva, whatever your background. We will always treat your application in a fair and equal manner.

Requirements

The perfect addition to our team will have:

* a fiercely independent and self-driven approach
* 2+ years' commercial experience working on back-end systems at high-scale startups
* Awareness of Go, Node.js, Docker, PostgreSQL, MongoDB
* A working knowledge of the entire web stack - from how DNS lookups are transmitted, to how browsers prioritise CSS rules
* (Ideally) Awareness of compliance and financial regulation


We are a small team so it is important that the successful candidate is not only technically highly competent, but also a great cultural fit!

Benefits

As well as a competitive salary (£50-65k, dependent on experience) and equity-based remuneration, benefits of working at Cuvva also include:

* Working in our (dog friendly 🐕❤️) offices in Shoreditch
* Monthly team outings (karaoke, go-karting, bowling, comedy night!)
* Regular team lunches
* Health and wellbeing allowance
* Professional development allowance
* Brand new MacBook
* Cycle to work scheme
* Travel season ticket loan
* Book club & Breakfast club
* Annual day off for volunteering
* 33 days of holiday a year (inc. UK public holidays)
* Coaching from Sanctus providing you with a safe space to talk and support your mental health
