An Insider's view of Haven Life

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The work life balance here is defined by the ability to not have to choose between work and life. I don't have to choose between being successful at work and being successful in the things that make me happy. It's fulfilling to be at a place where you can put in the work and also enjoy the fruits of your labor.

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with a team standup. Then it’s meetings, heads-down coding time, or collaborative work for the rest of the day. I eat at my desk when it’s busy, but I prefer to take a walk outside or get lunch with coworkers at one of the great food places nearby. I may meet with other teams to discuss projects or do a 1-on-1 with product or design.

How does the company support your career growth?

During my first week at Haven Life I was immediately entrusted with high-impact projects. I was given the opportunity to tackle difficult problems and engineer solutions. Career growth at Haven Life is learning-based, if you have a passion for learning, your managers and team will support your goals.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

In 2019 we hosted the Innovation Challenge, a year-long contest to develop employee-generated innovations in the life insurance space. By design, the challenge brought together employees to brainstorm ideas, pitch product ideas, develop proof of concepts, and later build the winning products in a way that was self-driven yet internally encouraged.

Todd

CTO

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful person on a Haven Life team is open to tackling new challenges and sees them as opportunities rather than obstacles. We're growing quickly as a business, plus the conventional industry needs updating, so a Haven Life team member needs to be flexible and be okay with a little bit of ambiguity.

  • I had a baby last year, and it has been so wonderful to return to office. My team has been incredibly supportive of my transition back. If I can't spend my days with my little guy, I couldn't imagine a better place to be.
