Company Description

Attune is making it easier, faster, and more reliable for small businesses to access insurance (think, pizza place down the street or main street store). They all need insurance to protect their businesses, but when it comes time to get a policy, they’re bogged down by hundreds of questions, lots of paperwork, and a seemingly never-ending timeline stretching for weeks or months. 

We are changing all that. By using data and technology expertise to understand risk, automating legacy processes, and creating a better user experience for brokers, we’re able to provide policies that are more applicable and more transparent in just minutes.

Together with our partner company Coalition, we serve 130,000 small business policyholders who pay us ~$500M per year in insurance premiums to ensure their security. Our combined company is worth $3.5B, with our latest raise reaching $205M, and participation from world-class investors like Index Ventures and T. Rowe Price.

Now our growth is in hyperspeed- not only our mission, but also our team. In staying true to our values, we’ve earned our spot on many workplace award lists. Attune is dedicated to creating a diverse team of curious, focused, and motivated people who are passionate about changing the future of an entire industry.

An Insider's view of Attune

What’s the vibe like in the office?

With one word, it would be "fast-moving." The culture is incredibly collaborative, with everyone relying on each other to drive company growth. Teamwork and adaptability are table-stakes. Your efforts will truly have an impact on the direction of Attune. All employees rely on each other, and feed off of each others' energy.

What projects are you most excited about?

My favorite thing is to help our team members to prep for meeting materials. Sometimes we need a full report with charts and visual aids, but a lot of times just a few bullet points. It’s amazing how we can work across teams to connect the dots and interpret the metrics and make it into an inspiring story to highlight Attune’s success.
