About Cuvva

Cuvva is making car insurance radically better 🚙

We’re creating truly flexible products that meet people’s real needs. Using lightning-fast technology to unlock better experiences and fairer prices for our customers, Cuvva is building the future of insurance every day.

Cuvva was the first UK company to sell hourly insurance through an app. Since then we’ve sold over 3.5 million policies and supported over 500,000 customers. We’re a world-class team of over 100 people, passionate about solving our customers’ problems. Join us 🚀

The Cuvva Culture and Values

We don’t cut corners. We try to do the right thing, even when that makes life more difficult for us 👩‍💻

Being customer centric means everyone in every area of the business – including our CEO, Freddy – spends a few hours a month on customer support. This helps us fully understand our customers’ needs and how the app works. Here’s a blog post on our ‘COps Club’  👀

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.

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