Welcome to Zego. Insurance made flexible. Simple. Better.

Job Description

We are Zego - a commercial motor insurance provider that powers opportunities for businesses, from entire fleets of vehicles to self-employed drivers and riders. We combine best-in-class technology with sophisticated data sources to offer insurance products that save businesses time and money.

Since our inception, we have believed that the problem with traditional insurance is that it holds businesses back. It’s too expensive and time consuming, and it no longer suits businesses who use vehicles to earn money. Our products represent a solution to this problem for businesses based across the UK, Europe and beyond.

So far, we have raised over $200 million in funding and we were the first UK insurtech to be valued at over $1 billion. We were also the first to be awarded our own insurance license and recently won Tech Company of the Year 2020.

At Zego, we are proud to say we have a diverse and inclusive team, unified by our shared values and mission. Our people are the most important part of our story and everybody at Zego, no matter their role, has an integral part to play.

Purpose of the Role:

PLEASE NOTE: This is a distributed role so applicants can be based anywhere in the UK. Please note that you may, on occasion, be required to visit the London office so we can only accept applications from residents based in the UK.

We are looking for a Full Stack Developer to help us work across a number of different initiatives within our platform team. Our core application is built on top of the Django web framework and hosted on AWS. We typically use Python 3, Postgres, Celery, and whatever else we need to get the job done.

It is an exciting time to join, you will partner with world class engineers, designers and product managers to help make Zego the best loved insurance startup in the world.

    You will have the opportunity to play a key role in developing new core insurance products.
    You will iterate on existing products to ensure we're providing the best insurance in the market.
    You will contribute to code reviews and mentoring of other engineers.
    As part of our codebase custodians team you will lead by example in championing code styles and standards.
    You will collaborate with product managers and across teams to bring new products and features to the market.
    You will contribute to the delivery of highly reliable, secure and scalable event-driven service based applications.

What you'll need to be successful in the role:

    We are looking for somebody with a strong working knowledge of software development.
    You will either have past experience in Python, or a willingness to learn.
    We are looking for somebody who is committed to building, nurturing, and iterating on an ever-evolving codebase.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
