Senior Software Engineer

Owl.co is a well-funded, rapidly growing insurtech company backed by North American VCs. At Owl, we tackle the $80 billion/year insurance fraud problem being faced around the globe, and we do it the right way. Our team of motivated innovators are committed to using data and AI ethically, so insurers and their clients are comfortable with these technologies. Using the Owl platform, our clients no longer transmit the costs of malingering, exaggerated, and criminal claims onto their policyholders and bottom-line.

What do we do?

Our product is a privacy-first fraud detection platform used to detect illegitimate claims at scale without bias or discrimination. Working with some of North America’s largest Insurance and financial institutions, we have offices in Vancouver, Toronto, New York and Seattle.
