About Cuvva

Cuvva is a new kind of insurance that’s fast, friendly and flexible. 

We get it - insurance doesn’t sound exciting. But this isn’t insurance as you know it. It’s insurance the way it should be. We’re putting the customer first and building products that solve real human needs. 

We were the first company in the UK to sell hourly insurance, and the first to sell insurance through an app. We’ve sold over 1 million policies. We’ve written over 260,000 lines of code. And we’re a fast growing team of over 100 talented people. 


The Cuvva team

We’re shaping the future of insurance. So we don’t cut corners. We try to do the right thing, even when that makes life more difficult for us. 

We’ll speak up when we have an idea - but we know when to let go and get behind something else. 

And we’re comfortable giving and receiving honest feedback, and trying new ways of doing things. It’s the Cuvva way. 

We’re building a diverse team with different backgrounds, outlooks and experiences. So we give everyone a fair chance of getting a role at Cuvva. Even if you secretly don’t love insurance. (Don’t worry - we didn’t either.)

And if you need any adjustments or support when you’re applying to Cuvva, no worries. Just let us know.

About Cuvva

A new kind of insurance

We started with a problem: nobody was offering short-term car insurance by the hour.

But we soon realised insurance isn't just lacking. It's completely broken. It's built on layers of middlemen and outdated systems. So Cuvva turned from a simple idea into a full-blown mission: to offer insurance the way it should be.


We think insurance should be fast, flexible and clear. So we've cut out the middlemen, ditched the jargon and put our heart and soul into customer support.
