Summary

What is JaSure?

JaSure is on-demand cover for your personal goods. An insurance product that is tailored to your lifestyle. The customer now has the control to manage cover and submit a claim - via the app with very little fuss. Cutting out long paper trails, brokers and call centres.

Insurance is one of the biggest markets in the world because everybody has to manage their risks. Large, traditional insurers move slowly and struggle to innovate. We believe that, with the right team, we can build a business that succeeds in redefining personal goods insurance for the 21st century.

JaSure comprises a team of dynamic, talented and experienced professionals from diverse backgrounds. JaSure is a strategic investment of a major South African insurer and their exclusive partner for digital, on-demand insurance.

Why work for us?

We are a bunch of young South Africans passionate about changing the traditional structure of insurance using an innovative tech stack and superior design to leapfrog existing customer experiences.

Come and work in a diverse team to wrangle data and ship a competitive product leveraging machine learning and AI as well as superior user experience on the Web, iOS and Android.

Our team is small so finding the right cultural fit is key. In short we look for people who are passionate, take responsibility for deliverables and treat each other with respect.
