An Insider's view of DAIS Technology

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There is a lot of positivity radiating around the office. People are energized about the many improvements and low hanging fruit to remedy the situation that small to mid-sized insurance companies face. This a problem we are absolutely going to solve, and we’re going to have fun doing it.


Senior Automation Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

A lot of tech improvements are incremental; it's about small changes to existing tech. It is different at DAIS, we have the opportunity to true transform the insurance industry, and it’s pretty fun. Seeing the adoption and delight of our users when we solve problems is amazing, and solving these complicated challenges is truly rewarding.

When I was hired in 2018, I was our first Customer Success Specialist. I was provided many opportunities to work with our internal teams to build and streamline processes, which helped me grow into my current role as our Manager of Customer Success.


Manager of Customer Success

What is your vision for the company?

We hire super smart people and encourage them to invent and create by not prescribing solutions but helping our people understand the problems they're solving and giving them leeway to invent new and better solutions.
