Summer MBA Intern (San Francisco)

👋 Who we are

Adapt API is a venture-backed startup building the infrastructure layer for Property & Casualty (P&C) insurance. Integrating technology in the insurance industry today is much like consumer finance pre-Plaid, or payments pre-Stripe, and our vision is to unlock a similar wave of innovation for the $1.6T global P&C industry.
Today when you walk into an insurance agency, it's like stepping into a time machine. Filing cabinets, fax machines, piles of incoming and outgoing mail. What you don't see is that even for the pieces that have moved to the digital realm, needless manual work abounds. Few systems communicate directly leading to endless copy-pasting from emails to various proprietary web portals/desktop apps and back again.
Carrier by carrier, endpoint by endpoint, Adapt will bring each of those manual and error-prone data transfers into our simple, modern data layer.
The implementation details are subject to change, but this is our north star, and the future we envision isn't possible without it.

🚀 Why you should join Adapt

Opportunity to be a foundational team member as the first non-engineering hire at a well-funded startup that’s growing rapidly in a massive and largely untapped industry.
You’ll get first-hand experience capitalizing on early product-market fit. This is a fantastic opportunity to lay the groundwork for your own founder/startup COO journey


You'll create the initial blueprint for critical key function(s) like marketing, operations, support and sales as needed
You’ll prioritize and own key goals in those domains to produce impactful results that move our business forward

You’re comfortable in an environment with ambitious goals and significant ambiguity
You have 2+ years experience in strategy, operations, or marketing roles, or consulting/finance and want to break into tech

🐛 The Founding Team

Jacob (CEO) is a strong engineer in his own right (Waterloo grad, senior eng at multiple Bay Area startups). He’s gone super deep on insurance, including getting a Broker License and a stint as an insurtech EIR at a top VC firm.
We’ve raised funding from great investors including a top seed fund, ex-Plaid folks, and insurance industry insiders.
