With our vision, industry-leading product and investment, we are looking to grow our exceptional team.

We have an incredible data science team, our backend is built using Node.js and GCP, and we are looking for a talented and scrappy software engineer who can help build out backend and date pipeline tooling to enable the continued development of our proprietary algorithms. Central to the work of the data science team is the opportunity to improve our ability to offer usage-based insurance through the use of telematics data.
