Our response was: "It doesn't have to be!" PolicyGenius is changing the game by making insurance shopping faster, friendlier and more efficient for the online consumer. Shopping for insurance might never be "fun" but it certainly can be easy and enjoyable. Want to help us achieve that?
With PolicyGenius, shopping for insurance is as easy, fast, and transparent as shopping for hotel rooms or airline tickets. Since our launch in 2014, we have already served thousands of happy customers and received endorsements from popular consumer advocates.
Built on the strategic vision of its founders, PolicyGenius was a first-mover in insurance tech, which is now one of the hottest and fastest-growing tech sectors. The company has also grown quickly, going from just 5 people at launch to 25 people a year later. We’re planning to grow 2-3x more over the next 2 years to successfully tackle a big problem:
A PROBLEM WITH SCALE: Insurance is a $2 trillion industry. That’s 36 times larger than Google and Facebook combined. Insurers pay their aging sales force a mint to sell insurance the old-fashioned way (with paper, face-to-face). We're changing this.
A PROBLEM THAT IS SOCIALLY IMPORTANT: Nobody’s helping people figure out insurance – and that’s bad. Under-insured medical problems contribute to over half of all personal bankruptcies and home foreclosures. We’re delivering social impact.
A PROBLEM IN DESPERATE NEED OF A NEW APPROACH: The consumer problem in insurance is deceptively simple: insurance is hard to sell because people don’t want to think about bad things like death and illness. Insurers just throw money at the problem: advertising, hefty commissions, pushy sales agents. We’ve introduced a new approach.
We've raised a couple rounds of venture capital and are at an exciting inflection point in the company's trajectory. We've got the culture, environment and size of a startup tech company, with the economics of a large, established industry. We're looking for smart and energetic teammates to help us build a world-class company.
