Work at Slice

Most people don’t think insurance is exciting. But we do. And we hope you do too.

Starting Conversations

Slice is an insurtech company disrupting the insurance industry by changing how customers purchase and use insurance—putting the power in their hands, instead of under the control of the large insurance corporations. We’re questioning the norm. Starting conversations. And continuing to iterate and innovate. Our dream team consists of big thinkers, active doers, and deliberate rule breakers who come to work every day with a purpose and a passion.

We’re funded, growing fast, and looking to hire people who are ready to change the world of insurance.
