About Boost Insurance

Don’t let our name fool you - we are NOT your parents’ insurance company!

We’re transforming the insurance industry in the same way that companies like Stripe changed the payments space – and that's just from the technology perspective. We’re building a platform from scratch because the existing solutions are old and pretty terrible. Our customers are disruptive insurtech startups and leading consumer tech brands, and our API-driven platform enables them to bring innovative products to the market. We're basically powering the future of insurance.

We need experienced engineers that are driven by taking on huge challenges. We’re not building the Uber for taco trucks, or the next Instagram filter. You will join a team that is solving an incredibly complex problem in a massive industry.

Our investors include Norwest Ventures, Greycroft, and Nephila, and we have raised a total of $5.5 million. We are already generating revenue, signed multiple clients, and have a strong pipeline through 2019.

Company Culture

We like finding creative ways to solve problems using new technologies. We all work hard, but understand the importance of good work-life balance. Everything is completely transparent and everyone is kept updated on all aspects of the company.
