About SchemeServe

SchemeServe is insurance software like no other.

Hosted in the cloud for MGAs, brokers and insurers, the SchemeServe platform boasts unique flexibility, unstoppable innovation and truly Obsessive Support.

Started in 2000 by our CEO, Adam, SchemeServe has grown from strength to strength, never having taken outside investment. We are proud of how far we’ve come, and how loyal we've stayed to our Core Values.

We are a fully remote company (even before the pandemic!), however, we do meet twice a year for a Team Retreat (one in March, one in September). These are used as a time to share ideas, relax and get to know each other better.

We absolutely prize self-development and encourage staff to continue learning, and set new challenges for themselves. Free books? Mentoring? Professional Development? You got it.

We also offer flexible working, paid days to do charity work, a warm and friendly working environment, a fantastic, relaxed and open company culture and free biscuits through the post every month (yes, we’re serious).

We genuinely believe this is the best place you could ever work!

If you’re excited, good! So are we.

We’d love to hear from you if you’re;
- a curious person who thrives on challenge;
- self-motivated and thorough;
- daring and happy to go against the grain.

Come and join the insurtech revolution!

Our Tech Stack is currently .NET, Microsoft SQL, Azure hosting. We are in the process of transforming to an API first backend in .NET Core with a React front end.
