Product Specialist - Insurance and Banking

 
Indonesia

We don’t usually toot our own horn but (seeing as you might work here soon) we thought you might like to know GoBear is Asia’s first and only metasearch engine for financial products. We spend our days trying to figure out how to make comparing insurance and banking products as awesome as possible. Our happy place is where users don’t even have to think twice – they can choose a financial product that’s right for them and feel confident with their choice (we know that’s a nerdy happy place, but we can’t help what we love). We’re looking for people who break the mould; who’ve got a hankering to do something completely different. Obviously we want our bears to be smart and hardworking but, more importantly, we want people on our team who love technology, who love their job, and who aren’t afraid to fail while trying something completely crazy. If that all sounds up your alley, then read on.
