Blue Owl
 San Francisco, CA
A million people a year die in car collisions around the world. We want that number to be zero. We invite you to help us build an InsurTech company that uses rich customer insights, advanced technology, and data science to save lives by preventing car collisions before they happen. To this end, we recently helped launch, a cloud-native insurance solution that rewards people for the act of driving well. 

With impressive funding, a compelling vision, and a world-class team, we're poised to re-engineer a trillion-dollar category from the ground up - and that's just where we're beginning.  Longer term, we're out to change behavior and promote mindful living at a societal level. 

We're seeking someone to build and enhance the security posture of our backend systems, AWS cloud usage, and networks.

Generally-useful tools you build will be open-sourced, and will ideally be consumed by the greater security community.
