Manager Accounting

About Us:

- Building a global insurance safety net that is simple, easy to understand, and accessible to all.

- Micro Insurance Company (MiC) is a full stack technology focused insurance company. MIC has brought together sales, distribution, product and technology to focus on new insurance opportunities coming from the new digital economy for billions of people. MiC provides insurance to internet platforms, millions of micro & small businesses globally. At MiC, we are changing the insurance business. We are constantly working to create insurance policies that do exactly what insurance is supposed to do - provide a safety net to help people recover quickly from problems large and small. Over the last 300 years, insurance has not done such a great job of this, globally few people buy, and it's seen as complicated, expensive, and untrustworthy.

- We are dedicated to changing this perception of insurance, and we are doing this through our actions. So far, we have issued over 3 million policies in 15 countries, and we are not slowing down anytime soon.

To make insurance accessible, we are often required to solve complex problems. Every country we operate in requires different solutions that are unique to that region. Thus, we have created and implemented many innovative financial services which are distributed through e-commerce partners and platforms, banks, mobile networks and mobile wallets.
