STILL INTERVIEWING (remotely) & HIRING FOR THIS POSITION DURING COVID-19 - Apply now

Who are we?

Our mission is to use AI technology to solve real human level problems across the world. From car accidents to natural disasters, our product can look at photographs and assess the nature of the damage and provide an estimate for the repair cost, all in real time. This means insurance claims settled in days (rather than months) helping people recover quicker. We're using AI in a way which genuinely helps people after times of real turmoil, a mission we feel immensely proud of. We're also known for having a best in class working culture focused around giving people autonomy and ownership within a highly collaborative, flexible and enjoyable working culture. In fact, we recently won 'Startup of the Year' (2020) and you can check out our amazing employee reviews on Glassdoor.

The project you will be working on:

You will be joining our talented team working on our loss adjustor application. In this team we are building greenfield applications used by insurance loss adjusters and by car body shops to speed up the insurance claims process. Our powerful AI enables full automation of traditionally manual tasks, and the applications we build in this team enable that capability to be deployed to the real world, acting on claims as they are being processed and inspiring confidence to our users, through great UX and transparency.

We work in a ‘two-pizza size’ team with a product manager, a product designer and full stack developers with different degrees of frontend and backend experience.
