Employment type
Full time

We are a high-growth FinTech start-up using data and machine learning to revolutionise the insurance industry. We’re looking for someone to lead our strong and mission driven team, working to build a customer facing product that fundamentally changes the way insurers process risk, enabling them to move from highly manual workflows, to digital risk flows.

About the role:

You will be helping to build Cytora’s Underwriting Productivity Suite, a serverless based web application that increases the efficiency and effectiveness of underwriters thereby reducing expense ratios and delivering profitable growth to our customers.

Our team is multidisciplinary, composed of UX designers, QA engineers, frontend/backend engineers, and product managers working together to build powerful solutions that allow our clients to integrate Cytora’s data and automation features into their insurance workflows.

Your role is to develop rich user interfaces using JavaScript/React, provide feedback to product managers, contribute to product roadmaps, and translate mockups into living applications using modern tools that enable us to build features quickly and delight our customers on a weekly basis. At Cytora, our values are at the core of our teams and our products.

Our tech stack:

  • React
  • Redux
  • Serverless microservices written in Go and Python


  • Significant experience building and maintaining full stack JavaScript production-grade web applications
  • Commercial experience with the JavaScript frameworks and libraries, in particular React*
  • Strong working knowledge of Agile fundamentals and frameworks
  • Experience working with APIs and services

*We know that years of experience ≄ level of skill, and we will consider candidates from a range of backgrounds. However, it is unlikely that candidates without at least a few years of hands-on experience with React will be able to contribute autonomously to our product.

Nice to Have:

  • Experience in UX/UI design
  • Startup experience: building working products quickly


  • Stock options
  • Enhanced parental leave
  • Private health insurance - UK only*
  • Choice of laptop
  • Flexi-working
  • £2000 travel budget
  • Company trips

*We employ people across the UK and EU (using a 3rd party Employer of Record model), and inevitably the benefits that we can offer vary slightly in different territories, due to local employment law and feasibility. Our salary range does not vary depending on territory.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
