Our customers are changing the world; we’re changing insurance. Surround emerged from one simple idea: all of the amazing choices that the go-getters and doers of the modern economy enjoy also creates a pervasive feeling of uncertainty. Neither age-old insurance products based on the things we (used to) own nor a customer experience relying on too many questions and a carrier pigeon serve these new consumers. We believe this is a problem that properly designed insurance can solve. We’re attacking a $1.2 trillion-dollar market that needs a beautifully crafted user experience matched with a new approach to insurance product design. We’re venture capital-backed and advised by insurance and technology veterans who share our vision and believe in our mission. Mixing the old and the new together to innovate without breaking anything (well, anything important) is our idea of fun, and it means that we are looking for a specific set of personal qualities as we grow our team: • Kindness and openness: Yup, we put this first. We’re direct, we’re honest, but above all, we’re kind and open to other people’s ideas and experiences. • A can-do attitude: We’re looking for you to be able to roll with the punches, figure out how to do new things, and make an impact by coming up with ideas that are better than ours. • Intellectual curiosity: Insurance is a complex industry. You need to be able to dig into the details, figure out why things work the way they do, and design a way to make it better. • Responsibility: We do what we say we’re going to do when we say we’re going to do it, and we communicate right away if that’s a problem. Sound like how you work? Perfect. We’re a diverse founding team and we believe that makes us stronger. We are committed to hiring people with a variety of perspectives, backgrounds and experiences and to ensuring that everyone at Surround has a chance to contribute and thrive.
