*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.

- 3+ years' commercial experience working on front-end systems at high-scale startups
- 2+ years' of commercial experience working with React (experience with Redux is preferable)
- a strong underlying knowledge of JavaScript itself
- (Ideally) awareness of compliance and financial regulation

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

N.B. You must have permission to work in the UK
