We are thrilled to announce that we are in a stage of explosive growth, allowing us to offer a variety of internships and entry-level opportunities to current students and recent graduates. Insurance, as an industry, is often overlooked by job seekers who crave innovation and disruption of the status quo. Our foundation stands at the intersection of insurance and technology: the ever-evolving Insuretech space. Whether your interest lies in traditional entrepreneurial roles (Sales, "New Business" Prospecting); relationship building and maintenance (Brokering, Account Management); policy framework and financials (Underwriting, Operations, Finance); or internal support (Technology, Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, Learning and Development, Marketing); we likely have an opportunity that satisfies your interests and promotes your career objectives.

To introduce students and recent graduates to our opportunities, company, and industry at large, we will be hosting our very first Virtual Collegiate Summit on Tuesday, March 29th, 2022! It will be a half-day webinar, accessible via the registration link posted on our Events page. Our virtual setup will allow attendees to enter and exit webinar sessions as needed, providing flexibility for attendees with busy schedules. We will also be providing recap material for those who register and attend the event. Please note, there are no stipulations regarding majors/degrees; we firmly believe and have seen that individuals of all backgrounds can be successful in and passionate about a career in the Insuretech space. We want to show how an inclusive, accommodating company culture can breathe new life into an antiquated industry and provide an exciting career path tailored to each person’s personal and professional goals.
