Why

Want to work on something that matters? Ladder is life insurance built to be instant, simple, and smart. Life insurance is a fundamentally good product for families and communities. Unfortunately, the traditional life insurance process is unnecessarily burdensome, involving in-person meetings with agents, physical paperwork, and 6-8 weeks of waiting. This outdated process has resulted in a $16 trillion coverage gap in the United States.

We are a growing team of innovators going after this huge market by putting the user at the center of product design. We are creating a company built on partnerships, technology, design, and data, so users can get the coverage they want and need.
