This is insurance, but not as you know it.
Superscript is pioneering the next generation of business insurance; leading the way in product and technology innovation.
We provide bespoke, flexible, subscription-based business insurance designed specifically to meet the fast-changing and complex needs of small businesses. Our unique offering has helped customers as they have scaled from pre-seed stage to unicorn status and beyond. This is an exciting and stimulating market to serve.
At the start of 2020 we closed our Series A funding round, raising $10.4m from investors including BHL Holdings (owner of Compare the Market), Beazley and Concentric. This investment will fuel our continued growth in existing and new territories and enable us to invest further in our data and technological capabilities.
About the role
The insurance industry is ripe for disruption. Instead of using the few major software houses in the industry, we’ve opted to build our system from scratch using a modern tech stack with a best-in-class continuous delivery pipeline.
In this role, your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to architect and build a next-generation policy management system that can support the rich domain of insurance across countries, regulations, taxes and currencies.
We’re a pragmatic team; we follow TDD when it makes sense but also often spike out features and then write tests. We use these tests to ensure we don’t break anything once we have a clearer picture and refactor. Our continuous delivery pipeline is fully automated and we release code to production multiple times a day.
Each engineer is given the responsibility to design, write, deploy and maintain their solutions.
Our system is built with a few micro (macro) services that are usually a combination of the following tech:
This is a fantastic opportunity to bring your talents to a small but ambitious team as we build an industry leading product. To succeed, you’ll need solid experience in Laravel, DDD and running scalable solutions in production.
As a fast-growing company, you will also need to help us improve our business processes and articulate trade offs with each technical decision. You’ll need the skills to influence and shape those changes.
Insurance is complex and fascinating. You should want to soak it up and, ideally, derive real enjoyment from mastering an intellectually stimulating industry - whilst working to change it for the better!
