Project Management Internship (min. 3 months) – Hamburg

Problem we are solving

Insurance – we all need it, most people are confused by it and few really “get it”. Insurance products are hard to understand and don’t always seem to cover what you expect and on top of this buying insurance isn’t easy. In a world where we can get most things at the click of a button, buying insurance is usually still an offline or late-1990s-digital nightmare, with confusing forms and a horrible customer experience.

Existing legacy IT-systems make it hard for insurers to bring out new products quickly, to sell them in digital channels, to integrate 3rd party services and to test what works and what doesn’t, in a low cost way.

KASKO’s Solution

We offer a digital insurance platform, which acts as a middle layer between insurers and the digital world. This makes it easy for insurers:

  • to create new insurance products
  • offering best-in-class digital customer journeys
  • connect to 3rd party APIs
  • build in a sandbox or fully integrated with existing systems

We can do this in a matter of weeks, rather than the traditional insurance speed of months or years.

KASKO’s platform empowers the multitrillion-dollar insurance industry to embark on the digital revolution that other industries have gone through already. It allows insurers to build better products for consumers and allows digital business of all types to work closer with insurers to deliver these products.

Who We Are

We’re backed by some of the UK’s top investors incl. Seedcamp (Backers of: TransferWise, PropertyPartner and Revolut) and Chris Slater (Co-founder Simply Business, 500m exit).

We also believe that you need to like and respect the people you work with and have some fun together. Thus, at least every quarter we will pick a European city and an Airbnb and meet up to have some work but mostly fun   We’re a diverse team of 17 (+89% since October) from UK, Germany, Holland, Italy, Latvia, Russia and Singapore with background in engineering, strategy consulting, enterprise sales, economics etc.. We have launched 30+ products in four countries and eager to grow even more.

The Job

This internship position is a great opportunity to become part of a well-funded growing business during the scale-up phase, with a prospect to be offered a full-time position at the end of the stint.
