The way to buy and sell insurance is broken — we're on a mission to change this. Consumers can connect their bank account to financial apps to manage their money, but can't connect their insurance account to receive a competitive quote. We're building Plaid-like technology to facilitate a modern insurance shopping experience and build developer-first infrastructure.

It all starts with the agent. The agent is the main distribution channel for the $684B P&C industry. The agent represents 93% of all P&C insurance policies issued in the United States. The agent is the plumbing behind the insurance industry and they need a platform to make buying insurance frictionless, personalized, and modern.

We’ve been moving fast since we founded InsurGrid in January 2020. Since then, we’ve built and launched the initial version of our product to 150+ customers and raised a pre-seed round led by Engineering Capital, Hustle Fund, and Shl.vc.

We are currently operating as a fully remote team due to Covid. Our ideal candidate will be in the Pacific or Mountain time zone.
