This well-funded InsurTech firm has a very bright future ahead of itself, operating within a highly lucrative and niche area of the Property industry.

With significant backing from one of the world’s biggest VCs, and investors including ex senior heads of Microsoft, this is a very exciting organisation to be part of.

With input from the gifted Data Scientist team, as well as experienced Developers, the company boasts its own automated underwriting platform, which provides extremely quick pricing and insurance cover. Working in partnership with a top-rated insurer, this InsureTech offers a very appealing and affordable insurance product to the SME market, where there is an enormous market to exploit. Having visited the client personally, we are seriously considering buying the product ourselves!

Within its target market, the company has already partnered with 5 of the world’s largest distributors/ beneficiaries, with many more prospects in the pipeline.

In line with its growth plans, the company has an opening for an Operations Manager, where you will effectively be 3rd in command in the running of the business. Liaising with various departments including Risk, Tech, Operations and Commercial Sales, you will ensure the smooth running of the operation, ensuring that it maintains its competitive advantage in the market. Duties will include, but certainly not be limited to, overseeing the claims spend, managing the relationship with the insurer partner, liaising and negotiating with external suppliers such as data providers, and ensuring the continued professional development of the staff.

This is a fast-scaling business, and the firm is looking for someone who wants to “grow with the business”, with a view them ultimately moving into a Chief Operating Officer (COO) role.

It is essential that you have experience within an InsurTech firm, together with a good understanding of insurance. Specific insurance product knowledge is not essential here as training will be provided. However, whilst we are not looking for you to be incredibly ‘tech savvy’, you must understand the nuances of an InsurTech firm and the market in which it operates. Just as importantly, you must possess strong commercial acumen, be well-organised and process-driven, and you must have excellent negotiation skills.

You’ll enjoy working in a start of the art office in the heart of the City, with some of the finest views of the London skyline we have ever seen. Here, you’ll benefit from free tea, coffee, fruit, snacks etc, an incredible roof-top café, a vibrant social scene and much, much more.

You will be rewarded with an attractive basic salary of up to £70K (Negotiable), together with a range of company benefits. The firm also promotes a great ‘learning policy’ to ensure that its staff continue to develop professionally and realise their full potential.

This position comes with share incentives, potentially including a small share allocation at sign-on stage. With the growth plans this business has, this could be a very lucrative career move.
