Avantia is a fast-paced, private equity owned business. We provide home insurance directly to online consumers and specialise in the UK non-standard market. Our vision is to deliver the world’s most intelligent property insurance. We are making great strides in achieving this by developing a rating engine and machine learning platform that rapidly adapts to new data sources, enabling risk and retail price optimization.
As the saying goes, we’re small but perfectly formed, in that we’re a diverse group of industry professionals, technologists, data scientists and customer champions. We each bring our individual expertise, an appetite for innovation and a shared ambition to do something extraordinary. And, although each week brings new challenges, every week we work as a team to meet them. Our newly re-fitted office in South West London aids this, with plenty of break out space to enable teams from across the business to work together and genuinely make a difference to the overall business.
Our values should give you a sense of our culture, these are not just words on walls, they are a genuine reflection of how we strive to operate:
Adventurous: Wethink big. We try new things. We are always curious.
Agile: We change. We innovate. We find a way through.
Empowered: We trust each other. We work together. We are a small team doing big things.
Working in a fast-paced environment where change happens regularly is part and parcel of the business. But there is also lots of opportunity to enjoy your time outside of work and helping to achieve the right balance for you, is really important to us.
