You'll develop functionally beautiful user interfaces of the likes the Insurance sector has never seen before

Role overview

Our vision is to become the UK’s best car insurance provider, and we believe that a major component to achieve this will be state of the art graphical user interfaces, tailored to seamlessly aid our customers on their journey for better insurance satisfaction.

It is for this reason that we are searching for developers that take pride in delivering top quality products, artisans of software; out-of-the-box thinkers and problem solvers who also place utmost importance in collaboration with others. Our FE applications are built using cutting-edge tools on top of the React ecosystem, as we value its battle tested efficiency and malleability. In the same manner, we expect our developers to be able to adapt to the frantic changes in conditions that the web is subject to on a regular basis.

Prima is an Italian tech company that has been disrupting the car insurance industry since its launch in 2015. We now boast over 1 million active clients and achieved a €100M investment from Goldman Sachs and Blackstone in 2018, the largest in Italian tech history. Prima is launching in the UK this year, which is why we are looking for top talents to join our London-based team.

Responsibilities

  • Develop and maintain the graphical interfaces that comprise our website, single page applications, mobile applications and component libraries.
  • Collaborate with other designers and developers to achieve a stylish and functional design system that communicates the vision of Prima.
  • Fully integrate our GUIs with internal and external APIs.
  • Pro-actively research upcoming web/mobile design trends and technologies and evaluate for adoption.
  • Be able to iterate on and improve our FE environments for building, development and deploying; be it with Webpack, XCode and any other tooling that we were targeting.

What We Are Looking For

  • Excellent knowledge of Javascript, with the added bonus of Typescript or Flow.
  • Excellent knowledge of HTML, CSS, as well as W3C standards.
  • Great experience of at least one of the main FE frameworks, React, Vue or Angular.
  • Good knowledge of Webpack and Node.
  • A good eye for design and understanding of what constitutes an intuitive user experience.
  • Familiarity with Git.
  • Some basic notions of BE development.

Desirable

  • Competence with graphic design tooling and notions of web design.
  • Good grasp of the contrasting approaches taken by object oriented and functional programming paradigms.
  • Experience with software testing, (unit, functional, integration, end to end.)
  • Familiarity with languages such as Elixir, Elm, Rust, Go or Haskell.
  • Familiarity with GraphQL.
  • Familiarity with concepts of (Functional) Reactive Programming.

Location

London is the capital of the United Kingdom, situated in the South East of the island. The world's largest financial centre, London is also often referred to the culture capital of the world. The city is well-known for its heritage, including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, and the historic settlement of Greenwich. London Underground is the oldest urban railway network in the world.

Technology workers in London earn 60pc more than the city average, with the figure even higher for foreign born workers, who earned 28pc more than their British counterparts in tech jobs. London can be considered as a center for professional relocation. Furthermore, there are over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies' headquarters in London.

The city is famous for unpredictable weather. For instance, it could be cold, warm and rainy in one day and it’s often the topic of conversation across the city.

Did you know...

  • 2.5M people, one third of Londoners, are foreign born
  • 40% of Greater London is green space
  • 10-49

Since its inception in 2014, the Milan-based company Prima has positioned itself as one of the upmost vehicle insurance services in Italy. This rapid success has prompted various measures of expansion, like branching off into services like home insurance and, most importantly, the perusal of international markets, starting with the United Kingdom. In order to accomplish this ambitious goal, and since the beginning of 2021, we have been assembling a new team of incredible caliber. Provided with a substantial degree of autonomy for developing their own tech stack, as well as decision making about the business, while also being able to take advantage of all of the knowledge, lessons and financial backing that the Italian parent company has been more than willing to give. However, in order for this enterprise to be of great success, we need to further grow our team of engineers and designers. We believe that now more than ever, a strong technological foundation is the key differentiator for the success of all businesses and with this at the forefront of our priorities, we would like to reach all intrepid professionals that would be looking to, make out of a market that's seen decades of stagnation and create something truly revolutionary and special for all drivers in the United Kingdom.
