Careers at Square One

You rarely hear of people who think they want to work in the insurance industry. In fact, most people simply fall into it. That said, it is a great industry to work in. The work is usually quite interesting and challenging. And, the industry itself is fairly recession proof as people always need insurance. Plus, insurance plays an important role in society. It provide financial assistance for loss or damage that few people could bear alone.

If you’re thinking about a career in the insurance industry, you should consider Square One. At Square One, we’re helping modernize the Canadian insurance industry and we’re starting with home insurance. We’ve introduced the only home insurance policy in Canada that can truly be personalized to each customer’s needs. We’re also modernizing the way in which employees are treated. For more reasons you should work at Square One, available positions, and instructions on how to apply, please see below.

Why work for Square One?

It’s simple — you want to be part of a tight knit team where each person’s expertise is respected and valued. Here are more reasons why you should work for Square One:

A strong purpose:

We want to be the Apple of home insurance. Or at least, we aim to do for home insurance in Canada what GEICO and Progressive did for auto insurance in the United States.

A great culture:

We have a culture of respect, pride and innovation. We treat smart people smart. So, as a member of the team, your opinions matter. You’ll have direct access to the entire leadership team, including the company’s president. We’re also building a culture of recognition and fun by celebrating company and personal successes.

Innovative products and processes:

Starting from square one has given us many advantages. We’ve been able to create everything with our customers in mind, and we’re adopting best practices from other countries and other industries.

Focus and support:

Many people strive to be an expert at what they do. At Square One, you’re set to do just that. Our focus on home insurance, the great coaching and training we offer, and the solid computer and telephone systems we provide, are all designed to help you be an expert.

A modern office:

Our modern office is conveniently located in Downtown Vancouver. It’s easy to access by bus, Skytrain or Westcoast Express. In fact, we’re only 6 blocks from the Granville, Stadium or Yaletown Skytrain Stations. During breaks, you can frequent cool cafes, restaurants, and shops.

Casual dress:

Imagine being able to wear jeans and sneakers to work every day! That’s not something you can do at a traditional insurance agency. It makes coming to work a whole lot more pleasant.

Free food and drinks:

We order-in lunch, or go out for dinner, on the company at least once a month to celebrate our successes. Our fridge is always stocked with drinks for everyone to enjoy. And, we have an espresso machine for your use.

Fair compensation:

You deserve to be fairly compensated for your contributions, so we offer very competitive base salaries. You’ll get three weeks, not two weeks, of vacation to start. And, you can tailor your other benefits to your individual needs.

Employee profit sharing:

You directly contribute to Square One’s success, so if the company reaches its quarterly goals, you’ll share in its profits. It’s as simple as that.
