I know what you're thinking: "Hey, don't you PolicyGeniuses already have a Team page?" You'd be correct, but that's speed dating compared to this romantic dinner. Or, since we're talking about insurance, an unromantic dinner. But, as our team page says, we're the people who aren't bored by insurance pricing models and think about how you think about insurance all day. Literally, all day. Like, it's our jobs.This time on Meet the PolicyGenius Team, get to know our developers. They're the people who built this whole website, our quoting tools, and wear funny hats when they "deploy" things.
