What we do

OneSpark’s founders spent many years working in the insurance industry, creating some of the world’s most innovative and award-winning insurance and Social Impact products, helping to improve the lives of millions of people across the globe. After years of frustration, they left their jobs and created OneSpark Insurance, because they believed that life insurance, and insurance in general, could be done better and in a manner that enabled greater inclusivity, transparency and the re-invigoration of a relatively stagnant industry. OneSpark has subsequently designed and developed several completely new insurance products across three business units. These products were underpinned by the same philosophy and vision of rebuilding insurance bottom up to provide the most personalised, dynamic and comprehensive offering, at a price which is substantially cheaper than the market, through the use of state-of-the-art AI technology and new age actuarial thinking.

Why Work For Us

OneSpark was founded on the vision that life is not about money, but about making a difference and pushing the world forward. This vision, to fundamentally change the way insurance companies operate and to create products that people actually want, earned the backing of global insurance giants who believe that our products have the power to change lives across the globe. OneSpark has also secured an exclusive partnership with one of the largest big data and analytics company’s in the emerging markets who will facilitate distribution to over 300 million clients over the next 4 years.

If you want to work with highly experienced, intense and interesting co-workers, if you want global exposure, unique learning experiences and if you want to change the world, come along for the journey.

Our Culture

OneSpark was founded on the belief that a company is only as good as its people. We only hire the best, you will only work with the best and we will do everything we can to keep you at your best. You can wear what you want, be who you want and where possible, work where you want. If you have to run out to do admin, go for it. If you have to take your kids somewhere, go for it. In return, we expect absolute dedication, your full loyalty, relentless innovation and the ability to get the job done in about one-third of the time that most competent people think possible.

There will be help though, as OneSpark's internal and external development teams will be there to assist and help you grow.

Our Hiring Process

At first, you will be interviewed by OneSpark's Lead Developer who will asses your technical proficiency and culture fit for the development team. Thereafter, you will be expected to interview with OneSpark's founders with an idea to get to know you better, as well as assess your overall proficiency for the role at hand.
