About Ladder

Ladder makes it easy for anyone to buy life insurance. Life insurance is an industry that hasn't changed for many years. We're rethinking the entire process using software. Other life insurance companies prioritize agents' experiences. We're making the consumer experience great instead.

Company Culture

Walk out Wednesday: Every Wednesday, we randomly partition everybody in the company into groups of 3 or 4. Each group goes out for lunch in Palo Alto. It's a fun way to get to know people at Ladder.

Katas: Each month a member of the team will come up with a fun programming challenge. Engineers (optionally) build solutions to these problems. Afterwards, we discuss approaches and solutions together. Past katas have included: finding an appropriate reviewer for a change based on previous commits, building a TCP echo server, and computing transitive dependencies using our code base's dependency graph.

Game Night: We get together monthly and play a variety of board games with pizza.
