We're making insurance cheaper, faster and fairer by building the most tech-focused insurance company of our generation.
Since launch, we have been the quickest growing insurtech in Europe. We are currently turning over more than $100m per annum, have raised over $45m, and are signing up 10k new customers per month. We are one of the only UK based insurtechs to own our own insurance company - giving us total control of the entire value chain, from sign-up and pricing through to claims affording us the unrivaled ability to deliver an exceptional customer experience. We have a huge advantage over incumbents due to machine learning, automation, owning our own technology stack, comprehensive data integrations, seamless design and a "move fast", honest culture. We are a team of over 100 and counting, have a 4.6* Trustpilot score, and are championed by deep-pocketed investors who have backed the likes of N26, Spotify, Transferwise and Monzo. We have also been named one of London's best startups to work for here.

What you will achieve in your first 12 months at Marshmallow
Although no two days are the same, here are some key areas that you'll be supporting in:
- Interacting with new and existing customers on a daily basis, solving their queries via live chat and email to provide an all-round great customer experience, keeping NPS high and meeting individual targets related to quantity, speed, and accuracy
- Proactively spotting patterns in the frustrations or hopes of our customers, identifying where and how we can change our processes, tools or product to make them happier
- Liasing with third parties (e.g. underwriters, claims handlers, premium finance partner, etc.) to ensure a seamless customer experience
- Keeping compliance at the forefront of your mind, making sure that everything we do and say is in accordance with FCA guidelines
- Building up expert knowledge of our product, systems, and processes through comprehensive training, as well as dedicated Focus Time, which you'll use to fill any gaps in your knowledge
Working as part of a team, you will need to be able to work 2-3 weekend days per month and 1-2 late shifts (5-9pm) per week, as defined by a rota. You will also be required to work occasional bank holidays.

- To meet our regulatory obligations as an FCA authorised financial services company, Marshmallow needs to conduct background checks on all new hires. This means carrying out a DBS check and checking for any live criminal proceedings. Please ask our Talent Acquisition team if you have any team questions about this.
