About Us

We have recently completed a successful Series B funding, which will fuel our ambitious growth plans and enable us to invest in technology, recruit the best people, and bring new insurtech product lines to the market while keeping us at the forefront of urban mobility. With a mission to make insurance fair & easy for everyone, we are committed to changing the way customers buy and feel about insurance, for good.

As a global team of around 150 people based in the USA, UK, and the Netherlands, we value:

  • Generosity, inclusivity, open-mindedness, and diversity
  • The delivery of great results and learning in the open
  • Freedom to make long-term, high-impact decisions
  • The well-being of their teammates and the people around them
  • Enjoying the ride

Founded in 2016, we are one of the fastest-growing and commercially proven Insurtech companies in the new insurance landscape. Working closely with globally recognized partners, we provide fully digital auto insurance for taxi, TLC, ride-share, delivery, private fleet, and private hire drivers, enabling them to get from a quote to a full policy cover in the shortest possible time. Our products are currently live in the USA, UK, and the Netherlands and we have exciting plans to expand to new territories and add new product lines.

We are based in and around the NYC area but currently work 100% remotely. Post-pandemic we may consider transitioning to a hybrid office and home-based model with travel to co-working spaces for in-person meetings at least 3-4 times a month.
