Acrisure Technology Group (ATG) is a fast paced, AI-driven team building innovative software to disrupt the $6T+ insurance industry.  Our mission is to help the world share its risk more intelligently to power a more vibrant economy. To do this, we are transforming insurance distribution and underwriting into a science. 

At the core of our operating model is our technology: we’re building the premier AI Factory in the world for risk and applying it at the center of Acrisure, a privately held company recognized as one of the world's top 10 insurance brokerages and the fastest growing insurance brokerage globally. By using the latest technology and advances in AI to push the boundaries of understanding risk, we are systematically converting data into predictions, insights, and choices, and we believe we can remove the constraints associated with scale, scope, and learning that have existed in the insurance industry for centuries. 

We are a small team of extremely high caliber engineers with a diverse background across industries and technologies. Our engineers have worked at large companies like Google and Amazon, high frequency trading companies like TwoSigma and Jump Trading, and a variety of smaller startups, including successful startup founders.

On our team you will design products that are simple, intuitive, accessible, and quite simply, magical! You will collaborate with a world-class team of engineers, researchers, product managers and agency partners throughout the design process. You will deepen customer understanding through user research, customer interviews, crafting personas, user journey maps, service blueprints, user flows, wireframes, user interface mockups and prototypes to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas.

  • Experience in survey design
  • You are self-directed and excited to build something from scratch in a fast-paced, experimentation-driven environment
  • Ability to deal with ambiguity and successfully juggle multiple, varying assignments from conception to completion in a fast-paced environment
  • Proficiency in a variety of design and research tools such as Figma, Miro, DoveTail and Airtable.
  • Experience building and maintaining a design library & component system
  • Ability to quickly turn around wireframes and mockups and other communication artifacts in an agile, iterative startup environment

An Insider's view of Acrisure Technology Group

What are some social events your company does?

We have weekly lunches at the office, which is a great way to bring the team together, as well as doing a Thursday trivia happy hour that is a mix of remote and in office participants. We’ve recently started holding quarterly onsites that have included a scavenger hunt around the city, a bbq and brewery tour, and having fun happy hours downtown.


Employee Engagement Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Every team here at ATG builds on the same platform and works on facets of the same product, so there is constant communication between teams. A few great examples of this are frequent design reviews, where engineers across teams talk through new services, and biweekly demos, where teams get to show off what they have been working on lately.


Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As a leader, the job is to provide as much clarity as possible in what successful outcomes look like and create the space for your team to iterate their way to the destination. It's important to focus your energy on creating the conditions for creative solutions to emerge from the very people who are closest to the innovation process.


Chief Product Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Easy-going and accommodating - you can come in, keep your head down, and grind without an issue. Also after working remote for so long, it's been a pleasant surprise seeing in person what an eclectic group my coworkers are and how there's always someone who's up to kick back or help me figure out whatever I've been banging my head against all day.
