Front-End Developer (Remote, based in Riga)

What are you looking for, KASKO?
We are looking for an experienced Front-End Developer, who will help create great-looking, customer-centric webapps. You will also work with the Back-End team and our Project Managers on delivering customer specific projects.
Great, and suppose I am one, why should I join you?
Well, we are one of the fastest growing InsurTech start-ups, revolutionising the multi trillion insurance industry. So, you have the opportunity to work on cutting edge technology, help shape a platform from ground up, leveraging microservice, and leave your mark within an exponentially fast-growing business. Oh, and we are a friendly and fun bunch of folks to work with!
OK KASKO, well that sounds good, but what do you do actually?
Great question! We are an InsurTech business. With the help of our brilliant tech platform, we’re building the first truly global network connecting insurers to digital ecosystems and their customers.
Insurance? Tech? That sounds kinda boring.
Haha, you’re not the first person to say that. But don’t judge a book by its cover! Insurance is one of the largest and richest industries in the world, but it’s way behind in terms of tech innovation. At KASKO, we are looking to become the backbone that drives and enables that change for the whole industry. We are making insurance sexy again😜! Interested?

Solving a Problem

Insurance – we all need it, most people are confused by it and few really “get it”. While most other things are now super easy to buy and handle online, insurance is still a nightmare.

Existing legacy IT-systems stifle insurer innovation, meaning they can’t build new products quickly, offer them in digital channels, integrate cool new services or data, and test what works and what doesn’t, effectively.

KASKO’s Solution

KASKO offers an end-to-end insurance platform allowing insurers to build, run and continuously optimise digital insurance products in any distribution channel quickly, cost-effectively and flexibly.

Thus, we empower the multi-trillion-dollar insurance industry to embark on the digital revolution that other industries have gone through already. We allow insurers to build better products for consumers and to offer those in any channel and ultimately move from a fragmented offline world to a truly global, digital marketplace.

Who We Are

We’re an InsurTech business backed by some of the UK’s top investors incl. Seedcamp (Backers of: Transfer Wise, Property Partner and Revolut) and Chris Slater (Co-founder Simply Business, 500m exit).

We have an amazing technology platform, clients that are keeping us super busy and a clear vision of where the insurance industry is going and how we can help it get there! But to do that, we need to expand our awesome team.

We’re a diverse bunch from all over the world, with backgrounds in everything from insurance and technology to languages and history and we believe that diversity is what makes us so strong, so everyone has the opportunity to shine, but words a cheap so come and meet us to find out for yourself.

The Technology

We have a simple technology philosophy. Anything and everything should be automated.

The front-end of our platform is currently built on JS Webapps. The back-end is built entirely on a Microservices architecture.

These together allow us to easily deal with the multitude of complex and different workflows that could go into selling different insurance products in different places.

Currently we get things done with Angular, Typescript, PHP, and AWS, however we don’t limit our selection to these technologies, we believe that a good engineer can rapidly pick up any technology.

The Job

We’re looking for an experienced Front-End Software Engineer who’s keen to take on big projects from scratch and shape how this platform and company is built.

We want someone who is independent and capable of taking responsibility for large areas of delivery. You’ll have the opportunity to build things the way you want to from scratch.
