Product Owner


Please note: the planned start date for this role is September 2020, but subject to change.

 

Concirrus

 

Concirrus is on a mission to change the way that insurance works forever.

You might live in a ‘safe’ area with your car parked in a garage overnight, but what if you spend all day driving around on congested motorways at a high risk of a crash? From an insurer’s point of view, shouldn’t your insurance premium reflect your daily behaviour rather than your demographic data i.e. where you live.


The fact is, behaviour is a much better indicator of risk than demographics and, working with some of the leading marine and motor insurers utilising our software Quest, we are proving this to be true.

Quest is a beautifully designed and intuitive web app built upon cutting edge technical architecture. It pulls together multiple sources of industry data, combines that with an insurer’s own data and uses big data analytics, developed by our in-house team, to derive new behavioural insights for our customers.


With backing from insurance and deep tech investors, co-founders with previous start up experience, and a clever and passionate team based in London and Delhi, we’re looking for exceptional people excited by our vision to help us make it happen.

The Role


Developing products that solve real problems for our customers is at the heart of everything we do, and we’re on the hunt for an exceptional Product Owner to work across our Quest platforms that are changing the game in commercial marine insurance.

The challenges facing the marine insurance market are well publicised. There has never been so much pressure to consider alternatives to the status quo. At Concirrus, we’ve developed products that take advantage of the growing availability of data to help the market see risks in a new light: based on the day-to-day behaviour of fleets.

We’re looking for a Product Owner to be a part of the team responsible for our Quest Marine products, and to help us continue to revolutionise marine insurance.

You will be based in our London office, working with a talented, diverse team in both London and Delhi, helping to produce innovative software that is entirely new to the insurance market.


You will be critical in understanding customer requirements and translating these into implementable product specifications, user stories and development tasks.

You will work directly with the product, delivery and data science departments to ensure that our innovative vision is carried right through from idea to technical implementation. You will be responsible for ensuring that the product roadmap is well understood, and the development backlog is well prioritised to ensure we are developing the right things at the right time.

  • Writing high quality user stories and tasks ready for development.

  • Strong commercial experience working as a business analyst, product owner or similar.

  • Experience across the end-to-end requirement engineering process.
