Careers at Kin

New Kin August2019

Kin Insurance is an insurtech startup that sells affordable, user-friendly homeowners insurance. Unlike many startups that gather users and figure out how to be profitable later, we are selling a product that homeowners need and depend on now. 

Because the insurance industry is stuck in the last century, we’re essentially innovating in a space largely untouched by tech. So we are always thinking big: we intend for Kin to be a brand that people still know and respect in 20 years.

That forward thinking informs every part of our culture, including our hiring practices. If we’re building a company that’s unlike anything that’s come before, we need creators and dreamers to lead the way. 

We are committed to founding an inclusive and welcoming work environment where team members are given the resources and support they need to develop their skills and advance their careers. We are proud to have incredibly intelligent folks working with us and believe in a simple governing practice: autonomy is key to job satisfaction. That’s why we always say the person closest to the problem should solve it. It’s also why we offer unlimited vacation time: we trust our team knows best how to manage their own projects and time.

We can’t promise you everything, but we can promise this: when you work at Kin, your talent and experience are respected. Come learn and grow with us.
