    About Acre:

    Acre is rebuilding the UK’s £1.4 trillion mortgage market from the ground up. We want to take the friction, pain and time out of the process of buying a house - a slow and frustrating experience over a million homebuyers undergo every year.
    We’ve been working with brokers, lenders and insurers for the past year to understand what makes the current process so difficult, and now we’ve received £5m backing from Aviva, alongside an exclusive partnership with Sesame Bankhall Group (SBG), one of the UK’s largest distributors of financial advice.

    The Role:

    A key part of the home buying process is Insurance. Homeowners are required to have their property insured and the current process consists of 100+ questions about your door locks, window shapes and how close is the nearest tree. It is completely out of touch and unnecessary. There are a vast number of 3rd party data providers who can help us bypass these questions and provide a seamless experience for the home buyer and broker. Additionally the protection (Life, Critical illness cover and Income protection) market needs a lot of attention. 

    You'll be part of a growing Product Team, with an initial focus on our Insurance products. You'll be collaborating with a variety of stakeholders across Operations, Development and Sales teams to identify key areas for improvement, draft solutions, prioritise them and then communicate those solutions to the engineering team.

    What you will do

    • Analyse and produce clear and concise requirements (user stories) with detailed acceptance criteria
    • Work across our multi-functional Agile teams to turn early stage sketches into code.
    • Be a central figure leading the collaboration between subject matter experts, UX designers, and Developers.
    • Passionate and excited by the unknown and what we can achieve here at Acre.
    • Facilitate and lead our workshops and be an advocate for Agile methodologies.

    Benefits

    • Chance to join a fully funded, but new Fintech startup in a unique position to make a difference to the mortgage market.

    • Vibrant Central London office, alongside other growing startups, as much tea, coffee, biscuits, and fruit as you can handle, and Paul's Irish Bar.
    We’re looking for people that will get stuck in and make a difference. We have a great collaborative, entrepreneurial team that are passionate about what they do. If you want to join a team that is changing people’s lives for the better then we’d love to hear from you.
