Most people know they need insurance, but they don’t know what to look for, what is a fair price, and what products they need. You know that feeling when you just-want-to-get-it-done-and-over-with, and bam (!), there you go - you did it, you signed an insurance of which you have no idea what it covers. There has to be a better way, right?
This is where Happens comes in.
Insurances are crucial, yet, the complexity of the product (and concept) leads to a very low interest. Insurances are often referred to as a “low interest product”, but we at Happens want to change that.
Our vision is to make insurance more interesting, engaging, fun, simple and most importantly - understandable. Happens helps people find, sign, swap and manage insurances throughout life. In short - we’re striving to evolve the way people buy and manage insurance.
The position & responsibilities
You will be teaming up with our CTO, where you will be using your front end development skills to create the next state-of-the-art insurance experience. Happens consists of two major components. The aggregator and the platform for signed up members. Our aggregator helps people to find the right insurance at the time of purchase in an easy and intuitive way. The platform aims to offer users the ability to import, overview, keep track of, top off, challenge and manage all their insurances in one account with Happens.
By combining our aggregator and platform, we hope to help every single Happens user to remain correctly insured when life takes its toll.
You will be a part of improving the user experience for both components, as well as implementing new ideas.
Some of the technologies you will be working with are Gatsby, React, Material-UI.
Key responsibilities include but are not limited to:
We would love if:
From paper to web: you are familiar with UX/UI design and love to implement your own designs.
You enjoy keeping up to the date with the latest UI/UX design and tech trends
You enjoy working in a team to elaborate on ideas and iterate.
Happens is a startup where some processes are under development and not in place. This employment will fit you perfectly if you’d enjoy being part of our small Happens-family and be part of a growing company where processes are made and iterated on along the way.
You are a problem solver that strives to develop and learn new things and enjoy staying up to date with the latest trends in your field.
You are unafraid and ready for a new challenge where you can find new or alternative ways forward if your initial plan does not go as planned. We see it as important that you’re able to always look ahead and come up with solutions by yourself.
You enjoy working independently where you find it natural to solve problems that arise, but you are not afraid to tackle complex problems as a team.
You are a team player and have a good ability to work in a cross-functional team to reach goals together, where you gladly share your insights that could help others, and the company, to reach goals and improve.
You are flexible and can adjust your work tasks and priorities fast according to changing conditions. You’re open to help colleagues if you can even if it is not “on your table”. The circumstances can change fast at a startup and all of us need to be able to adjust after new goals and changes for the best of the company.
