About Covera

Covera is an InsurTech startup that automates the annual process of re-shopping for home and auto insurance. We are taking on the challenge of re-inventing an unloved product by leveraging technology, new ways of thinking, and alternative go-to-market strategies. We are looking for people who have an entrepreneurial mindset, are self-directed and who have a thirst for continuous personal development.

What you can expect from Covera:

  • A progressive & technology driven environment where team members are expected to contribute to the continuous improvement of company tools, policies, processes and resources;
  • Continuous and high quality personal development opportunities using a structure built on best practices;
  • Encouragement and resources to contribute to the business and incentives to share in its success.

What you should not expect from Covera:

  • An environment to coast by, work under the radar, and keep your head down - we will expect you to have a voice in the organization;
  • An environment where there is strict division of labour - we are a startup, everyone is required to get their hands dirty when needed.
