Who we are

Hokodo is an Insurtech company looking out for all the small businesses that have been left behind by today’s financial service offerings. We believe that the design and distribution of financial products has been broken for a long time, and we’re on a journey to fix it. Our insurance and financing solutions integrate into the tech platforms that SMEs use day-to-day, such as the online marketplaces they trade on, so they are available at the point of need. This allows us to simplify the entire insurance process in what can be a complex field; no paperwork, no hassle, no intermediaries.

We’re currently seed funded, with backing from a well-known venture capital investor. Right from the beginning we cut across geographical barriers and functional silos. Bringing together people from across Europe, our small, tight-knit team combines business and financial services knowledge with deep tech, design and data science skills. We don’t buy the traditional separation between business and technology.

We’re looking for like-minded people who are passionate about what they do, love to learn new things and have ambition to build extraordinary products. We’re offering an opportunity to work directly with the founders of this company as well as an abundance of opportunity for personal growth. 


What we offer

Hokodo offers a chance to join a fast-growing startup for a hands-on internship, working directly with the founders in a flat structure and a 1-2-1 mentorship throughout your time with us.

As we are scaling up our business you can expect to be exposed to a variety of tasks; we can give you as much opportunity and responsibility as you’re ready for.

Activities

  • Day to day interaction with customers to accept new business and deal with claims
  • Continuous monitoring of our underwriting and pricing algorithms

  • Analysis of prospective business partners before implementation of new business relationships 
  • Research to support decision making on the strategic direction of the company
  • If you’ve already got some coding experience (eg. from a university research project) then you’ll also get the chance to help maintain some python scripts we use to automate our operations
  • If you’d like to gain experience in any other areas, such as business development or product management, then we can make that happen


What we’re looking for

  • Fast learners able to adapt quickly
  • People with drive and motivation, able to take responsibility
  • Structured pragmatic thinkers
  • Analytical abilities 
  • Excel knowledge essential 
  • French speaking would be an added bonus (but is not essential)
  • You’ll need to have the right to work in the UK until at least Summer 2021


What’s in it for you

  • Opportunity for personal growth in a fast moving startup
  • A flexible environment with a focus on making things happen
  • Competitive remuneration for an internship
  • International exposure, working between Paris and London
  • Subject to a successful internship, the opportunity to join us as an employee
