What is Bequest?

We are an early stage tech startup revolutionising the life insurance industry. Born out of Founders Factory and supported by Aviva, we have gone through incubation and are now in the acceleration program to power our growth.

Bequest is an all-of-life and end-of-life planning platform. It can hold your will, pension, investments, digital and financial assets, and connect all your beneficiaries so that nothing gets lost.

What are we looking for?

As we expand our engineering team, we are looking for an experienced fullstack developer who thrives in a fast-paced environment and can help us build and scale our product beyond the MVP. Currently we've built a web application, but next on our radar is to build a mobile app.
