The end-to-end microinsurance solution for mobile operators
We use disruptive mobile technology to bring insurance and health services to consumers at the bottom of the pyramid, on a scale never before possible. In just five years, BIMA has established itself as one of the fastest-growing and most innovative companies working in emerging markets. We already have thriving operations in 14 markets across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, with 18 million subscribers registered to date. We continue to show a strong growth trajectory, adding over 600, 000 new customers per month.
Why are we exciting?
We honestly feel we are changing the world we live in today, and we are doing it in a way that is profitable and sustainable.
We are trailblazers, not phased by obstacles put in front of us by traditional players, researchers, insurance industry 'suits' and incumbents in our markets.
We have invented our own approach to solving a global problem (lack of financial protection) and created a market that wasn't there before we began.
We have built a network of 1000 agents worldwide, who are mainly young people helping us to sell and educate people on insurance (like the ones in the photo from Bangladesh). We are constantly growing and have huge ambitions for our company.
We are a young, ambitious and dynamic team of intelligent over-achievers who love to immerse ourselves in new and exotic cultures and adventures.
And finally, we are as adventurous in business as we are in our lives.
What can we offer Escapees?
Our roles offer you the opportunity to pretty much run a business in emerging markets with none of the financial risks or concerns that come with setting up your own business.
Our Country Managers are the CEOs of our local operations, responsible for building a company and agent distribution network, managing relationships with our partners (incl mobile operators, insurance companies and regulators) and making sure that business performs. You have the freedom to make (or break) the business (with some Global strings attached of course, helping you our with best practice along the way).
Our Business Development Managers are in charge of our market expansion, determining what criteria will be used to decide which markets to enter, building relationships with prospective mobile operator and insurance company partners, and building and negotiating the business and commercial models we will run - and then, getting stuck in and setting up the local operation from scratch (including hiring our Country Managers!).
Run a business with all the support and none of the bank-breaking sleepless nights.
