It's True...

...we actually really like insurance technology—making it, improving it, simplifying it, and delivering and servicing it better than anyone else. To continue to do so, we need to draw and keep technology's best and the brightest. So, we make it fun to work here. Yes, we work really hard. But at the end of the day, we’ve solved problems with really smart people who love what they do; we’ve made a tangible difference in a fast growing industry; and we may even have played a spirited game of Guitar Hero or rocked a dance-off at an '80s club.

If you like a workplace where expertise is respected, hard work is expected, innovation is cultivated, support and sharing are valued and a sense of humor is a huge plus, drop us a line.
