Job Description

Think insurance is boring? We did too. So we built a company that takes everything you think you know about buying insurance and turns it on its head. 
At Cover, we want to become the largest and most customer centric insurance company in the world. 
Founded in 2016, Cover is a mobile-first insurance platform licensed in all 50 states, working with over 35 carriers and underwriting our own insurance products.

We’re growing fast. In the past year we’ve scaled the team across our San Francisco and Toronto offices. Across our diverse and multi-skilled team we’re working together to deliver a service that’s effortless to interact with, transparently priced, and built on a sustainable and long term footing.
We’re pushing hard to make our vision of insurance a reality and we want dedicated, inquisitive and collaborative people who are ready to play their part in achieving our goal.
