Insurance is the single biggest industry in the world - there are more insurance policies than people. But seven in ten people feel their insurer is actively trying to cheat them, and only 13% say they actually trust their insurer - and that's according to the industry's own representative body, the ABI. It consistently ranks as one of the least trusted, least recommendable industries on the planet. How can such a massive, ubiquitous thing be so fundamentally broken?
We're Hiro, and we believe we can do better. We're building *smart insurance*- insurance that's exciting, intuitive, rewarding, and there for you every day; not just if you need a pay-out. Insurance that works with you to actively protect the things you care about, instead of just sitting back and waiting for bad things to happen. It's everything your old insurance isn't.

We're a remote-first organisation, so will accept applications from anywhere. However please note that we will favour applications that are +/- 3 hours from GMT. If you're in a different timezone and willing to work to these hours, that's also fine.
