Help us grow into an ever-evolving marketplace. Seeking a passionate and experienced Director of Sales!

WHAT WE DO

Betterview is one of the fastest-growing insurtech companies. Driven by innovative artificial intelligence, workflow technologies, and deep insurance expertise, Betterview is disrupting the $600+ billion P&C insurance industry. Our clients include Nationwide, Auto Owners, Sentry, EMC, and others. We also partner with Guidewire Software, Socotra, and others as a part of the Betterview PartnerHub.

The insurance industry continues to struggle with harnessing the available risk and peril data to profitably underwrite business. Property insurance in particular is a major source of losses and premium leakage. Plus, there is a missed opportunity to engage policyholders and agents to better manage property risk. Betterview synthesizes all available property and peril data to help insurance companies profitably underwrite business, and engages policyholders and agents to manage risk.

Betterview is recognized by industry analysts as a leading insurtech and was recently named to the Gartner Cool 200 startups and the insurtech Hot 100. Headquartered in San Francisco, Betterview’s team is distributed across more than 10 locations in the US, including San Francisco, Chicago, New York, San Diego, and other locations.
