Job Details

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.

*About the role:*
You need to be bright, have excellent communication skills (in English), and be able to work under pressure while still maintaining a positive attitude to everyone around you.

You will be:

* Writing, testing and deploying new features
* Maintaining the current applications
* Contributing to code reviews
* Attending standups
* Evaluating new front end technologies & keeping our stack up to date
Our Stack:*

This is important. This role is primarily a [Flutter]( role, developing mobile apps. If you don't know much about Flutter, it's a pretty new cross-platform mobile framework developed by Google. It's written in [Dart]( We use it for our mobile apps, and that's where the focus of this role will sit. However, we do also have a few web-based services that are written in Angular, so the ability to work on those is also important.
So why isn't Flutter listed as a required skill? *We understand that as such a new technology, finding people with lots of Flutter experience is quite tricky. Our current team had never touched Flutter when we picked it up for the first time, and while it has it's quirks - it's something that can be picked up easily with the right mindset and fundamental skills. Therefore, experience working with Flutter is NOT a hard requirement for this role, as long as you're willing to throw yourself in at the deep end and learn it. Of course, any experience with it will certainly help.
