What we've been up to

Q: What's a typical day like in Engineering at Policygenius?

A: Engineers across our teams work on a wide range of products and technologies: dynamic, user-centered front-ends; a multifaceted, highly integrated CRM and fulfillment system that enables speed and quality for our customers; event-driven systems that are the backbone of automated workflows, integrations, and customer communications; a custom CMS delivering a wealth of financial content; and a data warehouse that powers strategic insights and customer value through our products. Engineers choose how to split their days or weeks between building/iterating on these products and pursuing technical initiatives to improve our own tools and practices.

Information Security

Information Security continues to build a best in class, risk-based security program to ensure that the personal data of Policygenius clients remains private and secured. We employ a DevSecOps mentality to make sure that security doesn’t slow down our partners across the company, and we are always shifting security left so that teams are empowered with knowledge and tools to help keep our environment safe.

What we've been up to

Q: What's been the team's most rewarding project so far?

A: At the start of 2020, we were working to transition our end users to an agile/mobile setup. We successfully moved users onto mobile devices and transitioned any on-prem infrastructure that could have become a larger blocker for the business. This project was completed the Friday prior to NYC's shutdown, which meant that our business was optimized for a worst-case scenario right out of the gate. There was ZERO downtime during this period.
