It then conducts a detailed comparative analysis of each, ensuring that the consumer obtains the best possible cover, at the lowest premium.

THE ROLE: 

Working in close unison with the CTO, you will be building and maintaining app features, implementing the Front-end logic, API integration and working with the Designer to implement the designs to spec in the app. With the guidance and mentorship of the CTO (who loves nothing more than upskilling people) and once you are comfortable with the back-end, you will also have the opportunity to work on other exciting software projects involving data science and the development of intelligent chat bots.    

Requirements:

  • A relevant tertiary qualification or substantial development experience  
  • 3 + years Front-end Development experience
