Why join us

i-surance is a B2B2C insurtech company like no other. Due to the exponential success of our modern and disruptive business model, we now boast two operations offices in the start-up hubs of Berlin and Barcelona and a further two sales offices in the European finance capitals Zurich and Paris. Plus, in the near future we will be extending our sales offices to London, Amsterdam, Lisbon and Milan!

How did we do it? Innovation.

We’re disrupting the traditional insurance market two-fold. First and foremost: our offers are transparent and valuable to the clients of our distribution partners. Secondly, we leverage emerging tech to serve our fast-paced digital world. Nobody wants antiquated and boring. Not me, not you, not your clients.

Our philosophy? Innovative, Simple, Digital.

Diverse companies are joining our vision every day. The big retailers of mobile phones, mobile operators, electronics, glasses, cyber security, etc. are amongst those making the switch – We’ve already earned the title of market leader in mobile, hearing aid and car tire insurances in several countries! What’s more, we serve 2M end users in 15 European countries, manage an insurance premium volume of around € 40M and aim to grow beyond € 500M in the next 5-7 years. There are no limits to our ambition!

Our triumph is a team effort, and that continues to be our crucial secret to success.

Despite our incredible growth trajectory and boasting an ever-expanding team of >70 awesome talents from all over the world (28 different nationalities), we’ve kept our youthful start-up soul. As all entrepreneurs and modern start-ups know, a great office culture fosters great results. This means warmly connected team mates rather than colleagues. It means team lunches, informal parties and trips to sunny islands. It means the occasional inflatable unicorn in the office. It means we’re tuned in to how people really want to work; in a flexible environment that nurtures creativity and innovative thinking where our fellow humans are friends, not numbers.
