Imagine all you can do here.

We’re powered by people of all kinds – innovators, creators, makers, analysts — yet we have one thing in common: we care deeply and have a strong desire to help people protect their loved ones by making life insurance easier, more accessible, and better. At Ethos, we have an outsized impact and true ownership over our successes. We’re part of a team making real, lasting change in a massive industry.

We’re passionate, committed, courageous, deep thinkers. We stick up for what we believe, we change our minds when necessary, and we aren’t afraid to offer contrary opinions and create solutions rooted in data.

We won’t slow down your innovation with red tape or decisions by committee because we expect you to dream big and execute quickly. We push when we see potential. We value what’s right over what looks good. We have a one-team, one-dream mentality because reinventing an industry isn't any small feat.

It's not life insurance. It's actually better.

Ethos is a technology company.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Who isn't, right?

But, our technology makes it easier than ever for everyone to protect their families with life insurance. We're taking something traditionally founded on exhausting processes and paperwork and infusing it with the insurance industry's most advanced proprietary technology, developing instant and accessible products so our sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, grandparents and whomever else can be protected.

We issue billions in coverage each month and invaluable amounts of peace of mind every day.

In everything we do we value clear thinking, attention to detail, teamwork and continuous improvement.
Already good — only getting better.

We consistently send out, analyze, pour over and dedicate hours and hours to employee feedback. These not only tell us how we've been doing, but help provide us a roadmap of where we need to go.

More than a paycheck: Benefits you'll actually want.
We offer a robust benefits package, a home office stipend and time off based on your location and role. What we’re doing isn’t easy (it shouldn’t be). So we hope all Ethosaurs take the time off they need — to recharge and get after it.
Comprehensive benefits packages
Awesome medical dental, vision and as applicable insurance coverage and retirement plans (in the US we offer a 401(k) plan).
Stock options
We want you to feel and act like an owner.
Rest, relax & recharge
We encourage our employees to take time off, in addition to our fully paid global company holiday schedule (variable in India, and 10 days in the US). When you need time away from work, we have paid and flex time options based on your role and location, and numerous paid leave programs.

Innovating and revolutionizing centuries of stagnation

Yes, we've been busy. But what's next for Ethos?

Life insurance has been around since the Civil War. It actually hasn’t changed much since the 1980s: before the internet, before email. In the short years that we’ve been around, we’ve shaken up the life insurance process almost entirely. Our co-founders Peter and Lingke are committed to rethinking the way we all get life insurance: making it an easier, faster, better, and more ethical way to protect your family.

We’ve employed a vertical stack model, deep AI, and an amazing automated underwriting process leading to the most advanced technology the industry has ever seen (which is saying a lot considering this industry started before cars).

We’re proud of our progress, the families we’ve protected, and the mission we’ve started — but there’s still so much work to be done.

Our story isn’t written just yet.

Come help us write the next chapter.

Lingke and Peter
Words = actions = results.
Boom. Science. Our four core values (that’s 2+2, FYI)
Serve our families
We act with integrity and do everything we can to delight the customer.
Speak your mind
We believe in having strong opinions – loosely held. We’re operating as one team, one dream so while disagreements may occur, we do what’s best for the overall goal.
Bias for impact
Bias for impact
In order to revolutionize the industry we have to win by overachieving; have the ambition to think big with the practicality of starting small.
Intellectual rigor
Intellectual rigor
We practice first-principles thinking, make decisions rooted in data, and push ourselves and our teammates to be experts in our fields and exercise strong attention to detail.
"So, where are you based?"

We have have offices in Bangalore and San Francisco, and over half of our team is remote across the US, as well as in Singapore. As a digital-first company we have Ethosaurs collaborating, creating, and innovating in multiple timezones.
