Our technology creates affordable on-demand car insurance for America's 50 million lower-income drivers
Why join us?
We're doing something that no one else has ever done, which offers to protect millions of lower-income Americans from fines/jail, and is powered by proprietary technology that's already gotten the backing of the best in fintech.
We pair senior ICs with subject matter experts and unleash them on difficult problems. Our bench pulls together folks from game dev (Hothead Games, id Software), media (REVOLT), UI (Deliveroo, Clario), and structuring (Merrill Lynch), along with a lot of independence and resources.
We're funded by Keith Rabois (Paypal, Square, OpenDoor) @ Founders Fund, Max Levchin (Affirm, Paypal), and Brendan Dickinson (Even, Ladder) @ Canaan.
Engineering at Hugo Insurance
- Flat, as we're all senior ICs.
- We use GitHub for version control and ZenHub for process.
- We use a low-touch kanban formulation, with remote daily standups and no other regular meetings.
- When something complicated or big needs building, it gets pitched and the team self-selects. Anyone can pitch, so tech debt and tooling is given equal priority to new features.
- Creating a system that allows highly differentiated geographic contracts to scale
- Asynchronous, scalable messaging systems
- Robustly handling a wide variety of data sources + complicated decisioning
Develop a POC PWA with access to 3-axis telemetry, location, and contacts
Enhance existing admin / CX tooling to pull multi-platform communications (sms, zendesk, email) into a single interface with chat pre-fill, recommendations, and validation
Enhance our acquisition funnel so that required input screens can be dynamically re-ordered to assess the highest converting funnel based on customer characteristics
Working at Hugo Insurance
Hugo is high impact, high stakes engineering. We're relentlessly focused on the customer and their community - some of the most vulnerable households in America. This desire to make a difference drives us and inspires a sense of ownership. We also can't afford to make mistakes - when we go down, people get arrested. That means that we value considerate, sustainable engineering over crunch and crash.
