Role Description

PolicyFly empowers insurers to sell and manage specialty insurance in minutes instead of months. Every year, $200B of specialty insurance like Cyber, Flood, or Trucking is processed over email between agents and insurers. It’s a slow, inefficient world where 55% of agents' time is spent on paperwork and it can take 30-90 days to get coverage.

Our mission is to create a modern exchange for hard-to-insure things – connecting all parties to automate workflows and consolidate data. We are modernizing specialty insurance with software.

On the backend, we utilize Kubernetes, Python, Go, Protobuf, gRPC, Postgres and Google Cloud.

About PolicyFly

Out platform gives independent insurance agents the ability to place and manage specialty insurance with their partners. Specialty insurance could be Satellites/Space, Commercial Trucking Fleets, Private Flood, Dealerships or anything that doesn't fit in existing solutions. We are automating and streamlining the specialty insurance industry.

PolicyFly assists underwriters with third-party data integrations to ensure they have a 360 degree view of submissions and provides powerful automation capabilities to handle their business processes and document issuance needs.

Company Culture

We value independence and proactivity above all else. We are a remote organization that relies on high communication and self-organization to remain aligned and productive. While there is always a vision and leadership, we value those who can work within the lines on their own to achieve that vision, as they see fit. Finally, we embody a scrappy, self-starter organization where everyone contributes wherever they can, whenever they can and are empowered and supported in doing so.
