Ethos is a new kind of life insurance built for people who don't have time for fine print, extra doctors appointments or hidden fees. We have transformed a 15-week process of paper applications and medical exams, into just the click of a button - by quantifying the user’s health risk using predictive models.
Some of the technical challenges to work on and overcome are: - How can we take a normally 8 week process and turn it into something instant? - How can we instantly issue a $1 million insurance contract without meeting someone? - How can we keep user's most private data safe from all threats? - How can we design an experience which gives consumers confidence enough to purchase a financial product without an in-person advisor?
