Help us increase global migration.

Our mission

Moving country is a hard, daunting process and we admire the people that are able to go through with this life changing decision. We build financial products to help these people integrate into society as quickly as possible and to support global migration. We've started by building a tech-first, smarter car insurer saving migrants thousands of pounds every day. And this is just the start. Read more about our mission in this blog written by two of our founders.

We’re growing - fast

Since we launched last year we've grown fast, but we are only a small team and have 99% of the work ahead of us. That means you have an opportunity to improve financial services for the millions of people who live in a foreign country.

We’re building a London office that cares

We foster a culture on people being trusted and being given the opportunity to make a big impact. We can do this as we hire exceptional individuals and then support then in their journey to become a better individual and contributor.

We believe in open and transparent communication. Meeting notes are religiously captured and shared, and you'll be encouraged to comment and critique decisions up and down the company. Decisions will sometimes be wrong, but we're unfased as we believe in learning from our mistakes and everyone really is allowed to fail.

“There is nowhere else you can develop a novel and adaptive mindset as well as transdisciplinary skills like a startup.”

Our benefits

Stock options

Every offer we make to people joining Marshmallow includes shares in Marshmallow. This means that you have a realstake in the company that you’re helping to build, and aligns the interests of the company with those of your own. If people work hard to make Marshmallow a success then they can rightfully expect a share of the future rewards.

Working from home

Whether your partner is ill or you have some deep-focussed work to do, or you just don't want to spend two hours underground, we all work from home (or café) from time to time. We believe that working from home can have a positive impact on how a team works so we encourage people to do this a few times a month.

Monthly socials

Every month we bring the whole team together for a social. These range from Axe throwing ⛏️  to escape rooms to a quiet dinner.

Holiday

32 days’ holiday a year (inc UK public holidays), and we encourage you to use them all up! Building an insurer is a marathon, not a sprint.

Who we’re looking for

People who push themselves

We seek individuals that always want to learn and who continuously push themselves. People that aren’t satisfied with average and can’t stand stagnation. It means that we love honest, constructive feedback as it helps us break the boundaries of what is possible in our field and grow as individuals.

Designer and developer dream team solve many user issues with their experience and skill

Owners

We like to work with people who get involved in areas outside of their expertise and who offer opinions on all matters of the company. It means we will sometimes have conversations where we aren’t the subject expert and that we sometimes poke our nose in to other people's business. But ultimately it enables us to come to conclusions that may not have been reached without niave input.

Dreamers

There are too many behaviours that are blindly copied. We seek smart thinkers who follow first principle thinking. It doesn’t mean that we aren’t inspired by other companies, we are - but we try to make a habit of coming up with our own approaches and solutions that others may believe are unachievable.
