Operations Manager at Zego
London, GB

Job description

You already know how Monzo disrupted banking, and how Transferwise made it simple to send money abroad. We bet you’d rather summon an Uber than hail a taxi. 


Insurance is the latest traditional industry on the brink of a tech transformation.


In 2016, Zego was founded by ex-Deliveroo managers. We believe that everyone - and every company - deserves clear, simple and flexible insurance. From carpenters to corporations, part-time hustlers to workaholics, Zego is committed to building insurance products that provide total peace of mind at a fair price.

In 2018, the Zegons landed in both Spain and Ireland. It’s our ambition to become a global business – we’re constantly pushing to break into new markets, discover what our customers want and deliver the products they need.


We’re backed by the best VCs in Europe and have been named amongst the ‘100 Hottest Startups in Europe’ and ‘Insurtech 100’.


Best of all? We’re just getting started.



We are now looking for an ambitious and diligent Operations Manager to drive the company forward. You’ll be in the heart of the action - creating and launching new products and processes by working with insurers, gig platforms and internal tech, marketing and customer service teams.




  • Researching, building and launching groundbreaking products

  • Coordinating product launches across multiple teams

  • Designing new processes and tools to improve the company’s efficiency

  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis across strategic and operational topics

  • Leading internal and external meetings with senior stakeholders


  • You’re a heavy lifter. You have the project management and technical skill to take ideas and turn them into tangible outcomes, working with various parties within tight deadlines. You’re able to stay on top of a wide range of topics across multiple projects, giving most attention to those that need it without neglecting others.

  • You’re an analytical problem-solver at heart. You can creatively think through tough problems to come up with highly implementable solutions on the fly. You’re enthusiastic, self-motivated and intellectually curious, able to ask challenging questions and see them through to find the answer.

  • You’re adaptable. You’re positive and proactive, and energised by working in a fast-paced environment characterised by constant change.

  • You’re a team player and relationship builder. You have demonstrated the ability to build great working relationships with people across cultures, styles and perspectives. You can effectively lead meetings (internal and external) to achieve the right outcomes for the business.

  • Insurance industry experience desirable but by no means essential! You’ll quickly pick up what you need to know on the job.


  • Competitive salary package with stock options
  • Working at VC backed high growth startup
  • Ground floor opportunity with the team; shape the strategic direction of the company
  • Work with people who love what they do every day
