We’ve used big data from our popular health test (taken by over 1 million people) to fight for lower rates on life insurance for vegans, marathoners, triathletes, well controlled diabetics, yogis, crossfitters, and more. Our goal is to promote a healthy lifestyle through financial rewards to those who make their health a priority. We are looking to hire the best and the brightest talent to help drive our mission to improve the health of the world by celebrating the health conscious.

Is this Startup Going to Make It?
We think so. Our CEO sold his last company to Google for over $120MM; his prior company to Alibaba. He was a board member or advisor to over $1B worth of startup exits to companies like Apple, Amazon, LinkedIn, etc. Past performance may not be indicative of future results, but we like our odds. We’ve grown from 23 people and now hovering 150 people in shy of a year; including opening our newest location in San Diego. This isn’t because we are spending some of the $81MM+ in financing we received like drunken sailors (in fact we are pretty frugal). This is because our revenues have been doubling almost every month since we started selling policies in January of last year.

Benefits:
• Medical (fully paid for employee)
• Unlimited PTO
• Stock Options (pre-IPO)
• Catered healthy lunches; yoga and spin classes
