At-Bay is a quickly­ growing cyber insurance startup out of Mountain View, CA. What’s cyber insurance, you ask? We’re selling insurance to companies against cyber attacks. It’s a pretty unique combination of fintech/insurtech and cyber security that takes us to new territories no man or woman has gone before.

We are an insurance company built by cyber security experts, because cyber risk requires a complete redesign of how risk is selected and priced. By better understanding cyber risk, we can create better insurance products and services. Cyber insurance is the fastest growing insurance line today, as companies become increasingly reliant on digital operations. So far, we have raised $19M from institutional and private investors, including Khosla Ventures and LightSpeed. We are currently 17 people in total split roughly evenly across our two offices in Mountain View, CA and Tel Aviv, Israel

Operations and execution are key factors in how successful we are. You will be driving the efforts to provide great software to our risk ops and sales teams. You will be a pivotal player in the building of our risk machine and a driver of our CRM implementation for our sales team. You will interact with our external apps product manager to have external apps reflect the output coming from risk machine, as well as drive changes in the risk machine that will enable our external tools to provide better user experience to brokers and clients.

Our teams have quite a diverse multidisciplinary background that you will need to build common tools and language for. You will be the one creating bridges of technology and design between cyber security, risk, insurance, and sales experts.
