About The Role

At Ethos, we strive to provide every potential customer with the right insurance product for them. The Policy Administration team is core to this strategy. At incumbents, life insurance policy administration is housed in archaic COBOL-based systems created in the 70s. This inhibits incumbents from being able to deliver automated and self-serve experiences to customers - and instead requires hiring teams of operations personnel to manage.

We are building our own internal, state-of-the-art, policy administration platform that will provide us the ability to be flexible, to automate, and to provide seamless customer experiences. You will work with an amazing and diverse team of engineers, policy administration specialists, designers, and insurance product experts to build the industry-leading system.

This role requires a high degree of entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to get things done. The ideal candidate is innovative and someone who can figure out how we should build technology to solve business operational problems. If you like to get your hands dirty, have strong business acumen to identify and evaluate new opportunities, and have an incredibly deep intellectual rigor and sense of ownership to advocate what is best for customers, then this is the role for you.
