Description

The Company
 
Boost Insurance is a next generation insurance platform built from the ground up with the explicit goal of making the business of integrating with an insurance company as painless as possible. We enable insurtech startups and other consumer technology companies to offer any kind of protection to their customers – how they want it, when they’re most likely to buy it, and who they’re most likely to buy it from. On top of that we provide a technology platform with APIs for everything from rating, quoting, and issuing policies to customer and claims management.
 
We are an early stage startup supported by leading venture capital and strategic investors and we’re seeking highly-driven professionals motivated by the prospect of building something from the ground up – and doing things differently.
