This is a unique opportunity to join the management team of Veygo, a new and ambitious InsurTech venture, backed by the Admiral Group (UK no.1 car insurance company).
Veygo has been created in order to provide great insurance and mobility products in a world where people don’t own cars anymore. Our 3 products - Car Sharing Insurance, Learner Driver Insurance and Veygo Rentals - allow drivers to borrow and rent cars for any duration between 1h and 90 days, whilst being insured through our market-leading, on-demand motor insurance.
As a start-up owned by a FTSE 100 Company, our goal is to get the best of both worlds:
A key part of our team is our Lean culture: it frames how we approach technology and product development (with weekly sprints, small scrum teams, and continuous deployment); it helps us keep our customers at the heart of what we do; it gives everyone confidence that they can make a difference, and help us get a bit better every day.
Veygo is growing fast and we are looking for a highly talented individual to reinforce our management team, reporting directly to the Head of Veygo. We are based in Cardiff, Wales.
The CTO at Veygo will oversee our development efforts and of steering our technology choices so that we can bring the best products to our customers. This brand-new role is perfect for a Technical Lead or Software Architect who wants to take their career to the next level, and the successful candidate will be able to shape and define their vision for the role.
This is not a full definition of the role but covers the main aspects and drivers for success.
Experience and Qualifications Required
Our success goes hand-in-hand with having a strong culture where we put our people and customers first. Our philosophy is simple yet effective: people who like what they do, do it better, and this, in turn, means that our customers receive the level of service and products that they deserve. Our culture is honest, open and wholeheartedly focused on four key areas: Communication, Equality, Reward & Recognition, and Fun.
