Frontend Developer - Motor

London

The Role 

Developing market leading products that solve real problems for our customers is at the heart of everything we do. Concirrus has ambitious growth plans and we’re on the hunt for an exceptional Frontend Developer for Quest Motor, a product that is changing the game in automotive insurance. 

Collaborating closely with our product delivery team, you’ll be responsible for crafting high quality user interfaces, taking high fidelity designs and turning them into beautiful software. 

Effective communication of your ideas is essential as you'll be interacting with stakeholders throughout the business. You'll need to be able to articulate complex technical details clearly and concisely using non-technical terms. 

This role is full of opportunity to innovate, design and create in a fast-paced environment where our focus is functional output and customer value, whilst maintaining a high level of quality within the software that we create.  

Concirrus 

Concirrus is on a mission to change the way that insurance works forever. 

You might live in a ‘safe’ area with your car parked in a garage overnight, but what if you spend all day driving around on congested motorways at a high risk of a crash? From an insurer’s point of view, we believe that your insurance premium should reflect your daily behaviour rather than your demographic data i.e. where you live.   

The fact is, behaviour is a much better indicator of risk than demographics and, working with some of the leading marine and motor insurers utilising our software Quest, we are proving this to be true. 

Quest is a beautifully designed and intuitive web app built upon cutting edge technical architecture. It pulls together multiple sources of industry data, combines it with an insurer’s own data and uses big data analytics, developed by our in-house team, to derive new behavioural insights for our customers.   

With substantial investment under our belt, visionary co-founders with previous start up experience and a clever and passionate team based in London and Delhi, we’re looking for exceptional people excited by our vision to help us achieve our ambitious goals.   

You 

You should be a well-versed frontend developer, with a keen eye for design and attention to detail. 

With a strong commercial background in web application development, you will understand development best practices and strive to build both beautiful interfaces and beautiful code. 

As an integral part of our product team you’ll be an effective communicator with an inquisitive nature and logical mindset. Working with fellow developers, designers and business analysts you will help shape our product within an agile working environment. 

The ability to take initiative is key, at Concirrus you will never be micro-managed as we believe that freedom breeds innovation and productivity. Asking questions is considered a strength and we hold each other accountable to the highest standards.
