Job description

About Locket

We’re going to say a bad word.

Don’t let it put you off.

Here it comes:


Still with us? Alright, here’s the thing.

Insurance is the single biggest industry in the world – there are more insurance policies than people. But seven in ten people feel their insurer is actively trying to cheat them, and only 13% say they trust their insurer. We're Locket, and we believe we can do better. We're building smart insurance – insurance that's exciting, intuitive, rewarding, and there for you every day, not just if you need a payout.
