About PolicyFly

PolicyFly enables Insurers to sell and manage specialty insurance.

Insurance? 😴🛌🪦 — Wait, keep reading!

  • Here is why we are fired up — it’s a massive industry (5%+ of US GDP) with HUGE challenges and the tech being applied is 30+ years past its expiration date.
  • Insurance is fairly recession-proof – in fact when economic conditions or turmoil occurs, is precisely when people wish they had insurance.
  • At its core, insurance is the vehicle that minimizes suffering and maximizes economic growth. Unfortunately, for many that require specialty insurance to protect their livelihood, it’s difficult to get.
  • For example, how does someone protect their house that is being impacted by climate change? Or, how can a company protect their goods along the supply chain, allowing them to expand? This is specialty insurance — where complex or higher risks are placed.
  • It can take 30-60 days to get coverage, without price transparency but with PolicyFly, an agent can place coverage on the same day.
  • Our product provides immediate DEEP value for our customers, the insurers — enabling them to automate back office ops while providing a storefront for their agents.
  • We’re processing a ton of data and money every day. Fun stat: we are already processing $2B in insured value every month.

🤗🐼 Why PolicyFly?

  • We are a Fintech SaaS with a transaction fee business model that scales up with our customer growth.
  • One of the best times to join in terms of risk/reward (post-PMF while still being pre-series A).
  • 3 Founders that have been working together for 15+ years in a variety of software businesses and we are even more fired up now! This means you’re joining a mature founding team that knows how to work together. We are here to change insurance and won’t tap out early.
  • The surface area of insurance is massive — tons of opportunity to take ownership and lead various products.
  • A big long-term vision for building network effects.
  • We are a distributed remote team with team members in CA, NY, NJ, VA, AZ, Canada, and the UK.
  • Properly funded to weather the storms ahead and grow the team and product the right way.
  • Quarterly retreats/on-sites — our last trip was in London.
  • Great benefits — full health, dental, vision, 401k matching, HSA, etc.

🚀 What are we building?

  • Document processing pipelines and rendering engines.
  • Low-code tooling to allow end-users to rapidly build their own insurance products and rules.
  • Complex calculation engines that can handle various pricing scenarios.
  • “Google Sheets” like GUI for managing complex lists of covered items (aka schedules).
  • Data pipelines to enable third-party integrations and robust reporting.
  • Etc, etc.

👂What we are looking for

  • Sense of humor — just because insurance seems boring, doesn’t mean we are or it is!
  • Solutions-oriented — you are bold and imaginative, ready to suggest new ideas.
  • Love learning — no matter your role, you will grow here. But you’ll grow 10x if you love to learn.
  • Communication — as a remote company, we live and die by communication.
  • Preparedness — preparation inspires confidence, and confidence earns respect.
