Our Values

The Embroker Pack lives by three core values that have taken us from an idea to a growing, well-funded player in the Insurtech space.

Pack First

We succeed and fail as one team. We optimize for what is best for our entire organization. We always assume positive intent.

Be All-In

We are 100% committed. We move fast and are proud of what we build. We attack challenges with relentless positivity.

Create Magic

We strive to amaze and delight at every touchpoint. We make our work fun through teamwork, play, and positive energy.

Right to Work/E-Verify Poster

We believe that systemic structures and practices disproportionately disadvantage the most marginalized people in society — including people of color, people from working-class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQ people. We believe that these communities must be represented and included in the work we do to make our Pack stronger and more creative, and improve the way we do business. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or members of other marginalized communities.
