About Cuvva

At Cuvva we’re building insurance the way it should be.

No more lengthy forms. No more waiting on hold. No more ‘computer says no’ attitude.

We’ve gone back to basics to build products that actually work for the customer.

We are super focused on creating a friendly, simple and hassle-free customer experience.

About the Cuvva team

We get it. Insurance isn’t traditionally considered exciting. At Cuvva we’re changing insurance and we are looking for people who find that as exciting as we do.

We're building a diverse team and we welcome people with different types of experience and outlooks.

You’ll really thrive at Cuvva if you have a ‘can do’ approach, are willing to try your hand at different things, have ideas and show initiative.


The role

You will be making product improvements, as well as starting from scratch on new features across all platforms. You will be working with the product team to design stand out user journeys that create a magical experience for our customers. This means you will need to be empathetic towards them, as well as understand the problems they face and how they use the product. You will also work with the marketing team on complex marketing challenges as we get people to discover Cuvva.

You will design from conceptualisation through to shipping the product to our customers. You will prototype and test your designs both internally and with customers. The problems you will be solving will be platform-agnostic across iOS, Android and web as we work towards keeping the product fluid no matter the journey or use case.

Our product designs are built in Figma and we prototype them internally and with our users using Principle. Illustrations are created in illustrator and our animations are produced in After Effects to work with Lottie.


Apply if:

You are someone who is able to simplify complex problems down to simple, elegant solutions. You are excited at the prospect of working on creating a product used by 100,000’s of people. You have a critical eye for detail and spotting imperfections.

You are able to communicate effectively with engineers and product managers to ensure that all teams are aligned.

You are comfortable collaborating with other people on complex product challenges.
