People & Recruiting


The People team is the anchor of Policygenius’ values and culture and comprises People Operations & HRBPs, Employee Experience, and Learning & Development. Together we oversee all aspects of the employee experience, from onboarding to leadership support to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The team helps to shape a talent-dense, inclusive organization by creating and protecting a culture of growth and development, empowering employees to take the wheel on their development, and providing a safe space for everyone to do their best work.

This one time I...chased down Derek Jeter's car as he left Yankee Stadium to ask him to sign a baseball for my dad - and he did!

What we've been up to

Q: What was the team's biggest accomplishment last year?

A: In early 2020, our team banded together to seamlessly transition to the unprecedented state of remote interviewing. Through problem-solving, flexibility, and extra communication with our candidates, we’ve been able to tackle the unique challenges that occur when conducting Zoom interviews while doubling in headcount. (We made over 300 hires in 2020 alone.)
