We are taking trucking and transportation insurance out of the dark ages, using modern technology to deliver instant policies and capture the use of advanced safety and autonomous technology. Free from legacy systems and inefficient processes, Koffie uses AI-driven predictive models to deliver a reimagined insurance experience for fleets while more accurately pricing its risk.

For US employees we offer a competitive salary, stock options, unlimited vacation, 100% employer paid health, vision and dental plans, commuter benefits and discounted fitness classes, generous WFH stipend, personal learning/training (for professional and industry certification) and conference budget. For remote hires outside the US, we are unable to provide some of these benefits.

Although this position is WFH, we envision meeting face-to-face as a team every 6-8 weeks for several days once things return to 'normal.'

We hope to have candidates go from submission to offer in under two weeks.

Equal Opportunity Statement

Historically the trucking industry has catered to the image of the white male American Cowboy: the born into freedom, self-starting independent trucker. Images from that era are visceral, but they are also faded. Today the trucking industry is powered by immigrants who aspire to those same ideals. It’s the top job in more than 25 states, so to presume the customer is the same as a generation ago is uninformed. By recognizing what motivates these enclaves, the better we will be positioned to grow our business.

The insurance industry is slower to change. As they leave the workforce, Koffie can play a part in bringing fresh talent that views the world with much greater diversity, impacting new approaches to product, pricing, support, branding, hiring and everything else that goes with a heterogeneous workforce.

We believe diversity in all its manifestations as it helps us grow a healthier and stronger business: thought, background, education, experience, ethnicity, gender, philosophy or sexual orientation are some of the ways we define diversity.
