What is the work environment like at Cuvva?

Pros

- Working with some really talented people who are passionate about creating incredible products and providing the best customer service - Working for a company who is trying to make a positive change in the world. We’re pioneers in the insurance industry. - People genuinely want to be here. Everyone works really hard because they’re passionate about what we’re doing and what we stand for. - Open culture where we can ask any of the Heads anything we want, and always get fair and honest answers. They’re all really humble and friendly. They respond quickly to suggestions and take feedback on board. - Super friendly team - some of the nicest people you could meet! - Dog friendly office - Free coffee, fruit, and stocked up drinks fridge - Regular company outings doing cool things like bowling, go karting and comedy nights - Great central London location - We have a treehouse

Cons

- You won’t thrive here if you require loads of structure. You’ll need to be happy to jump in and help us get stuff done! - As a fairly new and small company, lots is changing all the time at a fast pace. If you don’t deal well with change it might not be the place for you - We’re still figuring things out so some HR/people systems aren’t in place yet. We still have work to do here but are developing in this area all the time thanks to suggestions from the team. - We’re doing really well but we aren’t there yet. Building insurance as it should be is no small task, so we need people who are going to pitch in and really pull their weight. If you aren’t passionate about helping us in our mission, you won’t be the right fit.

What are working conditions like at Cuvva?

Pros

It's so rare that you can find an amazing job at a company that's really going places with an awesome team. It's wonderful to work with a real mix of positive, open-minded, motivated individuals who truly want the company to succeed. The founders are passionate about ensuring the culture remains a leading reason to work at the company. They are transparent through and through and willing to discuss all things from funding rounds to company policies or benefits. I've never felt intimated or judged throughout my time at the company - everyone is willing to discuss things in a fair and respectful manner and it really has an affect on the quality of work that everyone produces.

Cons

I suppose a con could be the frequent change and fast pace (although probably a pro for most!) Things change on a weekly basis but predominantly for the better. The company is constantly re-adjusting to new products, processes, an ever-expanding team and varying external parties so no two weeks are the same.

Advice to Management

Continue to be transparent in every decision you make. It makes a huge difference to the culture of the company as a whole and affects communication at all levels!

Cons

They’ve grown so fast, some of the management side can let it down a little

Advice to Management

In think you’re doing a good job considering the hardships of running a financially regulated business. You should alleviate the stress on the CTO for 1:1s
