Senior DevOps Engineer - Toronto Office at Cover
Toronto, Ontario, CA

Think insurance is boring? We did too. So we built a company that takes everything you think you know about buying insurance and turns it on its head. 


At Cover, want to become the largest and most customer centric insurance company in the world. 


Founded in 2016, Cover is a mobile-first insurance platform licensed in all 50 states, working with over 35 carriers. We were part of Y Combinator’s W16 batch, and have gone on to raise $27 million across three funding rounds backed by world class investors. 


We’re growing fast. In the past year we’ve scaled the team from 30 to 100 people across our San Francisco and Toronto offices. Across our diverse and multi-skilled team we’re working together to deliver a service that’s effortless to interact with, transparently priced, and built on a sustainable and long term footing.


We’re pushing hard to make our vision of insurance a reality and we want dedicated, inquisitive and collaborative people who are ready to play their part in achieving our goal.
