An Insider's view of Kin Insurance

What’s the vibe like in the office?

This company has inclusiveness that transcends all demographics. I love getting up every morning and walking through the doors at Kin! There is a vibe on the floor that makes a traditionally stuffy industry feel like we are changing the world!

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Recent collaborations between the sales and customer service team inspired a new team altogether – Kin’s Customer Wellness Team, which I’m glad to be part of. It allows me to blend my sales skills with the CS team’s famous empathy when I check in with customers about their insurance and review their ongoing coverage needs

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

In fast-moving startups, time is limited, but leadership should never be an afterthought. We create a culture where we share ideas at weekly all-hands, daily huddles, and over ping pong. I make myself available by moving my desk often and with formal one-on-ones with my team. The best ideas and vision come from the team collectively, not executives
