At the Insurance team, you'll be "insured" to have true team players. We help each other grow and learn and collaborate together to achieve our mission: Help every Swiss household get the best possible insurance for their home or vehicle.
Why do we need a new team member?
Have you tried to find great and cheap insurance for your car, apartment or house? Did you ever take a mortgage or a personal loan that best fitted your needs? Do you struggle with insurance and finance topics? Hundreds of thousands of people in Switzerland encounter similar situations every day.
We want to be the platform in Switzerland that best helps people with all their insurance and finance topics. We want to have a positive impact in the life of our customers, guiding them to select and contract the best possible insurance, mortgage or personal loan, saving them money and time.

This is where we need a software engineer like you that cares about the quality and user experience of the applications and services you build.
