Digital IT DR Analyst

Covea Insurance -

Full-time (Permanent)
Up to £40,000

We are an agile team of tech experts, game-changers and creative-thinkers, changing the future of insurance forever and making a real difference in people’s lives. We are using human-centred technology to make insurance more personal, relevant and predictive to the way that people live today. We are setting the pace of change for our industry, and we do this by always asking what’s next, by never being satisfied with the status quo, and by breaking barriers together. 


We are a team of individuals with a shared passion for solving problems, a hunger to learn, a super positive attitude and a burning desire to make a difference in the world. We’re a diverse group of curious, creative-thinkers of any and all kinds who know that true innovation only comes from working together with an open mind. We start with people first, bringing together data, the latest technology, the most innovative processes and the brightest brains to create ground-breaking ideas that will have the biggest impact on people’s lives. We build, test, learn, pivot and fail fast to bring the best ideas to life. And when we’ve got a great idea, we will throw everything we’ve got at to make it a success. 


Unlike other insurance companies who step in only when things go wrong, we are developing technologies that will help our customers stop the worst from happening by integrating seamlessly into the lives of their consumers.
