What do we do?

Cover is a mobile insurance app that makes getting insurance as easy as taking a picture. We are a national insurance brokerage licensed in all 50 states. We can insure anything from cars, your home, pets and jewelry.

Technical challenges

We have to connect with a lot of different APIs from insurance companies, some of these are well fleshed out and sometimes there is no API at all. Building a uniform way to ingest and display all of this data creates a lot of interesting product challenges.

Why join us?

1) It's a great time to join as we've just raised enough funding to build out our team and really scale what we're doing. We're a small team of 8 right now, so you'll have lots of growth opportunities and the opportunity to work on many different things.

2) We have a great set of backers, including Y Combinator, SV Angel and Social Capital.

3) We've already signed up 38 insurance carriers to work with, for a regular insurance brokerage it would have taken 4 - 5 years to do this and we did it in a single year.

4) Within our first 3 months of launched we were featured by Apple in the App Store. We've continued building great software since and as a result, our insurance agents can handle 100x the number of daily leads a regular agent could. By automating a lot of grunt work we can scale really quickly.
