Graduate Digital Product Engineer
Flexible remote/office (Watford)
Quotall is an early stage digital services and technology company operating in the general insurance market. Quotall’s client base are insurers and insurance brokers who recognise the strategic significance of digital trading in their sector, whether to serve digital savvy customers with their products and services or to drive efficiencies into their business processes.
Quotall provides a range of services, from strategic consultancy through digital marketing to e-trading systems. The company’s proprietary insurance trading platform allows clients to distribute their insurance products to other insurance businesses and to end customers, using a combination of technologies that links an optimised user experience with industrial strength transaction processing.
Quotall is looking to expand its Operations and Technology team with a Digital Product Engineer to design, build and service digital insurance products on the Quotall Platform. This will include gathering and analysing client requirements, configuring them on the systems, testing, debugging and post-live support and amendment.
With development and experience the job holder will become a subject matter expert for this aspect of the company’s operations providing training to client and company staff and specifying, developing and testing tactical enhancements to the Quotall platform software.
Working with Quotall
The office location for this role is in Watford, but much of the day to day activity can be carried out remotely from a home or other location. There will be an occasional requirement to travel to client premises or the company’s office in the City.
The job holder’s tasks will vary widely from small scale, “immediate” fixes to developments and builds which could be executed over a number of weeks or months. Although priority levels will be attached to individual work items it will generally be the job holder’s responsibility (with support from their manager) to schedule their own workload in the most effective way.
Pay and benefits will be at market levels.
Quotall’s software platform is proprietary but utilises standard market technologies such as Java and .Net. Structured training will be provided in core software functions especially product build, but there is also a significant requirement for informal “on the job” learning. Quotall will encourage and support career
development including professional and technical qualifications in the areas of insurance (e.g. CII), database administration and software development.
To fill this role Quotall is looking for candidates with well developed analytical and communication skills who are naturally collaborative in their approach. There is a high learning requirement and a need to be adaptive, self-motivated and open minded.
It is expected that candidates will have higher level education/qualifications, preferably in a technical/scientific field requiring strong logical and analytical skills.
Knowledge of the insurance market is not required but could be an advantage.
The business uses Microsoft Office products as standard productivity tools and familiarity/skills in their use is required.
