A bit about Newfront:

From the Mayflower to the moon landing, every venture relies on insurance. The $1Trillion insurance industry is fundamental to our economy, but it has been slow to modernize. It’s a fragmented market (where the largest player only holds a single-digit market share) that represents an enormous opportunity. At Newfront, we provide comprehensive risk management powered by advanced technology and a client-obsessed culture.

Our unique approach recognizes both the vast potential of technology and the fundamental role of expert advice and trusted relationships. While we’re a technology-driven company, we believe that people matter most. Our mission is to define the future of the insurance industry by leveraging modern technology that empowers people with information and delivers world-class service to our clients. 

We’re the fastest-growing brokerage in the country because we’re built for the 21st century.

Why we're looking for someone like you:

Insurance is a half trillion dollar market that plays a foundational role in our economy and society but is generally slow, archaic, and filled with paperwork. Newfront is building the modern insurance brokerage. We leverage technology to simplify the selling process for brokers and the buying process for clients. Our singular mission is to create the future of work for this massive industry.

Newfront scales by hiring brokers who join with their book of business. Through automation and artificial intelligence, we eliminate paperwork and pay brokers a higher split of their commission revenue. We represent a paradigm shift in the industry and career path for tens of thousands of brokers.

Newfront believes in empowering people rather than ‘disrupting’ them. In applying this belief, we’ve taken off like a rocket, seeing exponential growth across all key metrics.

As an engineer at Newfront, you will have opportunities to build features across the platform from client-facing web portals, workflow systems, natural language processing and document parsing, integrations with disparate third party systems, data modeling, document generation, and more.  There are tons of meaty problems to solve that directly impact the lives of the many insurance professionals and clients under the Newfront umbrella.
