Who are you? We're looking for developers who want to do it right, do it together and make a difference. You'll be part of a team helping us to develop browser-based internal systems, websites, APIs and service layers so that our customers can get peace of mind with the right insurance cover for their homes, wheels, and pets and so our staff can make life easy when it's time to make a claim.
Who are we? Ageas is an international insurance company (offices across Europe and Asia) with a history which goes back almost 200 years, we are in Europe's top 20 list of insurance companies and we regularly win awards for our excellent insurance cover* and being easy and straightforward to deal with.
We have 3,000 staff across 5 UK locations and 5 million customers… that's a lot of eyes on your web pages!
As part of an established company, we can offer the stability and opportunities of a big employer and the energy and support of an innovative team.
The Role You will be designing new functionality, suggesting enhancements, tackling technical debt and live issues, providing estimates, writing code, creating automated tests and implementing changes, all within project deadlines. While you may favour front or back end development you will be involved with both to ensure the team can deliver the diverse work in our remit.
You will be working closely with the business, analysts and testers and will be involved at all stages of the development lifecycle from the initial idea to the delivery.
We're also committed to doing the right thing for our customers, so everything that we do is centred on their fair treatment - it's one of the first things we encourage you to learn.
That sounds like a lot to take on, but don't worry, we're all in it together! Coaching and learning are part of the team's DNA, so you'll be able to help others and get the help you need, just by asking. Curiosity will get you a long way - if you are naturally inquisitive, pro-active about finding out more, confident to try things out and keen to deliver to a high standard, you'll fit right in.
Our products range from simple web services to web front-ends to full end-to-end systems. Some are traditional server-hosted products and others are cloud-based so there is plenty of opportunity to stretch your comfort zone.
