Head of Distribution

Virtual Req #225
Friday, June 14, 2024

About Us:


At Everly, our vision is to change the paradigm of insurance. We know life insurance can be confusing and complex. We know that most people purchase life insurance at a milestone moment and file it away for the future. We want to change how people think about, buy, and use life insurance by being a partner in life’s journey.  We are focused on making things that matter, making meaningful connections, and making things work WAY better. Our goal is to provide radically transparent, consumer-first insurance solutions.


We are looking for people with a continuous improvement mindset. Those who think the opposite of “This is how we’ve always done it”. We want people on our team who are always asking “How can we do this better?” 


Our company values are a guide to our behavior and help inform our decisions.  We want people who embody those values of breaking down barriers, owning the outcome, embracing the journey, and sparking joy.


This is a remote position based in the US with occasional travel.
