A million people a year die in car collisions around the world. That number can 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 our first product,, a cloud-based 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.  Longer term, we're out to change behavior and promote mindful living. If this all sounds like a match for you, please read on…

We're seeking someone to build and enhance the critical backend systems and services for web and mobile applications that are the core of our business. This includes the rewards system that will be used to increase driver safety, designing APIs, creating/managing databases, and automated test suites.  You will carve out a role for yourself within an existing high-functioning and communicative team.
