Wrisk grew from the marriage of two very different worlds – insurance and technology. These two industries have very different modes of operation and have traditionally attracted very different kinds of people. That means there is no typical employee here – we’re all different, and we like that.
We are a small team punching well above our weight. We know how important it is to hire smart, talented people with experience and potential, and we’ve built a fantastic team doing exactly that. Just having the ‘right’ background or qualifications isn’t enough though; you have to be driven, always learning and really care about what you do.
We are an actively inclusive organisation, and would love to welcome more women, people of colour, LGBTQ+ people and those from other marginalised communities to our team. We recognise the value of diverse perspectives - and their underrepresentation in both the tech and insurance industries. If we can help to change that, we will.
Specifically, we will make any reasonable accommodations for caring responsibilities, disability, mental illness, neurodivergence and other challenging circumstances. We value passion, and will always accept speculative enquiries from people who love what we do and want to be part of it but aren’t sure how they would fit in.
Our process is constantly evolving, but at our core we are a Lean and Agile start-up, which means following the build-measure-learn cycle for everything we produce and working flexibly to ensure we never waste time on something customers don’t even want. Everyone in the team is encouraged to follow these principles, though that can be more of a challenge for those working in insurance!
We are all operating on a remote basis and have been doing so since the start of lockdown in 2020. We hope to return to an office at some point in the future, but for now we will remain remote.
