We’re doing things a little differently…. Want to join us on our journey, to help us grow?

Founded in 2017 by our CEO, James, and co-founder, Callum, we’re an award-winning technology startup with a mission to make driving fairer and we think it’s time that car insurance was done differently for low mileage drivers. With the UK’s first real-time pay-by-mile car insurance policy, we’re bringing the same level of on-demand convenience to car ownership that people now expect from taxis and take-away food.

Inclusion is at the core of our business and our hiring, we want to make everyone feel safe to be themselves, and know that we will never compromise on that.

What we believe in.

We challenge with kindness, making sure everyone feels safe and included. We support each other.

We take time to learn so that we can improve ourselves, our colleagues and our products. We’re not afraid to make mistakes if it gives us the opportunity to grow.

We’re clear in our vision. We’re happy to challenge the status quo if it will help us make things better.

We own up, we don’t blame. We’re humble enough to take feedback on board, and respectful enough to give it. The next big idea could come from anywhere, so everyone’s opinion matters.

We consider before we start, whether that’s interrogating details to save confusion down the line, or getting help from others. We make decisions using data, not opinions, and we use our time wisely, always staying focused on the end goal.
