We are Zego - a commercial motor insurance provider that powers opportunities for businesses, from entire fleets of vehicles to self-employed drivers and riders. We combine best-in-class technology with sophisticated data sources to offer insurance products that save businesses time and money.

Since our inception, we have believed that the problem with traditional insurance is that it holds businesses back. It’s too expensive and time consuming, and it no longer suits businesses who use vehicles to earn money. Our products represent a solution to this problem for businesses based across the UK, Europe and beyond.

So far, we have raised over $200 million in funding and we were the first UK insurtech to be valued at over $1 billion. We were also the first to be awarded our own insurance license and recently won Tech Company of the Year 2020.

At Zego, we are proud to say we have a diverse and inclusive team, unified by our shared values and mission. Our people are the most important part of our story and everybody at Zego, no matter their role, has an integral part to play

Overview of our Engineering Team:

Zego puts technology first in its mission to define the future of the insurance industry. By focusing on our customers needs we're building the flexible and sustainable insurance products and services that they deserve. And we do that by empowering a diverse, resourceful, and creative team of world-class engineers that thrive on challenge and innovation.

Purpose of the Senior iOS Engineer:

We are looking for a Senior iOS Engineer to help us shape the technical architecture and develop a high-quality iOS app to give our customers the best user experience. You will join our App squad and help us build out and set the direction of our mobile team.

The ideal candidate must have experience creating and delivering reliable, secure and scalable apps for the iOS platform. It is an exciting time to join as you will partner with world class engineers, designers and product managers to help make Zego the best loved insurance startup in the world.

What you'll be working on as a Senior iOS Engineer:

  • Play a key role in shaping and developing our core application experience for the iOS platform.
  • Iterate on the existing apps to ensure we're providing the best experience in the market.
  • Work on maintaining CI/CD pipelines for mobile apps.
  • Contribute to code reviews.
  • Lead by example in championing code styles and standards as part of our engineering team and setting best practices for iOS development
  • Collaborate with Product Managers and across teams to bring new products and features to the market

What you'll need to be a successful Senior iOS Engineer:

  • Experience with app development using Swift.
  • An appreciation of Agile ways of working.
  • Great communication and the willingness to collaborate across teams to deliver excellent customer experiences.
  • Telematics experience would be nice to have, however is not essential.
  • Experience in the insurance/finance industry is also not a must, however a desire to understand how insurance can benefit customers, and empower them to take on more meaningful employment is.

What’s it like to work at Zego?

Joining Zego is a career-defining move. People go further here, reaching their full potential to achieve extraordinary things.

We’re spread throughout the UK and Europe, and united by our drive to get things done. We’re proud of our company and our culture – a friendly and inclusive space where we can lift each other up and celebrate our wins every day.

Together, we’re setting the bar higher, delivering exceptional work that makes a difference. Our people are the most important part of our story, and everyone here plays a role. There’s loads of room to learn and grow, and you’ll get the freedom to steer your career wherever you want.

How we work
We believe that teams work better when they have time to collaborate and space to get things done. We call it Zego Hybrid.

Our hybrid way of working is unique. We don't mandate fixed office days. Instead, we foster a flexible approach that empowers every Zegon to perform at their best. We ask you to spend at least one day a week in our central London office (next to Liverpool Street). You have the flexibility to choose the day that works best for you and your team. We cover the costs for all company-wide events (3 per year), and also provide a separate hybrid contribution to help pay towards other travel costs. We think it’s a good mix of collaborative face time and flexible home-working, setting us up to achieve the right balance between work and life.


We reward our people well. Join us and you’ll get a market-competitive salary, private medical insurance, company share options, generous holiday allowance, and a whole lot of wellbeing benefits. And that’s just for starters.

We’re an equal opportunity employer and we value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
