Senior Go Engineer

Remote, Full-time

Openly is rebuilding insurance from the ground up, re-imagining, and improving every aspect of the customer experience. Doing this requires a rapidly growing team of amazing, curious, empathetic people with a wide range of skill sets--spanning technology, data science, product, marketing, sales, service, claims handling, finance, etc. And now is the perfect time to join the journey. Here's why:

  • It's working. We're now in eight states and on our way to operating countrywide. We have thousands of agents selling our product and millions of dollars of annual customer premiums.
  • We're well backed & stable. We just closed our $40 M Series B fundraise and have years of cash runway in the bank. We're backed by some of the world's top investors--including Google's "Gradient" AI-focused fund, Obvious Ventures (Beyond Meat, etc.), and Advance Venture Partners.
  • It's not too late! Despite this traction and stability, we're still early enough in the journey that there's time to make a real difference during Openly's formative period.

If you'd like to understand more about Openly's mission, consider checking out this video from a company pitch we gave several years ago at Techstars. It's outdated (before the initial product launch!) but still telegraphs the journey we're on.
