Summary

What is JaSure?

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 insurance for the 21st century.

JaSure is on-demand protection for your favourite things. An insurance product built around the customer, not the insurer. Switch cover on and off with a swipe. Submit a claims via the app - no paper forms, brokers and call centres. Hooray!

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?

  1. Disrupt an industry: think about everything that's broken with your current insurer! What do you want to fix?
  2. Empowerment: you will make strategic architectural and technical decisions.
  3. Flexibility: modern insurer means modern employer - flexible work-hours and work-from-home option.
  4. No Legacy Tech: modern insurer means modern tech stack.
  5. Growth: develop new skills through peer learning in a team of world-class technologists.
