An Insider's view of Clearcover

What's something quirky about your company?

It’s surprising how much we all grow to love discussing insurance. Everyone is genuinely interested in how the industry works and sharing knowledge. I think we feel we owe it to our customers to understand how insurance works, so they don’t have to. We’ve likely all thought at one point, “Wow, I never thought I’d care about insurance this much.”


Senior Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Whether I'm working with Product to promote a feature launch or partnering with our Customer Advocate team to communicate updates to customers, I get to collaborate across teams, leverage my skills & improve my expertise every day. Clearcover nurtures a collaborative environment and encourages thinking outside the box to deliver better experiences.
