What we do
High Definition Vehicle Insurance (HDVI): Technology meets Insurance. HDVI brings telematics, software and data together with commercial trucking insurance, taking transportation insurance and fleet risk management to the next level. Our platform arms fleets with an end-to-end solution that empowers them to save money, mitigate risk, and increase operational efficiencies. Our customers are small to midsize truck fleet operators who benefit from dynamic and transparent pricing – automatically reducing their premiums for safer driving. Leveraging a best-in-class partner ecosystem, HDVI combines magnitude and stability with innovation to revolutionize the commercial trucking insurance space. 
Why work here
HDVI is building the industry defining commercial auto insurance company for the next 100 years. The $50 billion commercial auto industry hasn’t seen real innovation for decades and is broken in a number of ways, creating a significant opportunity for HDVI. HDVI is co-founded by a former Esurance co-founder, and has a senior management team with experience building innovative insurance and logistics companies from zero to $1B+ enterprises, and deep expertise in trucking insurance. HDVI is well-funded by leading logistics and mobility-focused venture capital firms and strategic investors including Munich Re, Daimler Trucks and Qualcomm. The HDVI Team is values-driven, data-driven, ambitious, and collaboratively minded with a diverse background of experiences and skills in the insurance and logistics industries. We like challenges and building solutions that improve the quality of life for our customers. We offer generous benefits, including employee stock options, health, dental, vision, 401k, flexible work environment, and unlimited PTO.
