Amsource are working on behalf of a 30-person start-up in Berlin that are completely revolutionising and digitising the subjects of financial, legal and health care for your future.


Most people don’t think about life and health insurances, pensions, legal cover and other associated cover until they are older. In part, this is down to the manual, laborious nature of these tasks.


No longer is this the case! Gone are the days of long-winded phone calls, emails, letters and hours of research! This is all about digitised, seamless and proactive decision making on your, and your familys futures.


If anything does happen to you, your family are covered, and access to documents take minutes, not weeks, which is revolutionary!

  • Confident relaying business requirements into the technical team, and working with Product Owners
