An Insider's view of Policygenius

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Think: startup meets productive adult office. The fridge is stocked with La Croix and there's usually a dog or two running around, but there's no ping pong. Everyone works hard and takes the job seriously. Strict "no chuckleheads allowed" policy. People are cool and from a really wide range of backgrounds.

Adam

Senior Product Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

All of the normal challenges of building a modern (fairly cutting edge actually, if I do say so myself), scalable tech stack, just with the added twist of integrating with a bunch of fairly archaic APIs. The insurance industry historically isn't exactly a bastion of modern technology, but we're doing our darnedest to change that.

Trevor

Senior Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Teamwork and problem-solving go a long way on my team and at Policygenius overall. I would say that individual ideas are not only supported but more importantly, encouraged. I'm consistently challenged, but always learning; our environment promotes both individual and professional growth. I'm looking forward to moving to the next level!

Masuda

Customer Success Team Lead

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision for Policygenius is to be the go-to consumer platform for insurance and financial protection. What Expedia did for travel, we're doing for financial protection. We're already the top platform for under-50 consumers for life insurance and disability insurance, and we're excited to expand that to new categories in 2019!

Jen

CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

So many team members have really interesting stories about their time before Pg. We’ve got trivia champions, ex-magicians, chicken bag experts, and even someone who used to be Madonna’s assistant. It’s all story-telling gold.
