Hello, we're Bestow
Your financial future is important to us and we know life insurance is a vital part of protecting that future. Through partnerships with some of the best insurance carriers, a faster application process that lasts minutes, and an experience built with convenience in mind, Bestow has made life insurance more accessible than ever before.
Why Work with Us?
Bestow is not your typical insurance company. We’ve completely reimagined industry assumptions, and harnessed technology and big data to create life insurance products that aren’t just delightful to use, but deliver on our mission: to make financial products accessible to more people than ever before.
An Insider's view of Bestow
What’s the vibe like in the office?
The vibe can be hectic at times and mellow at others. I feel I am in the good company of others that are trying to create something significant; no one is ever too busy to allocate time in their day for your comments or concerns. I consider a good office atmosphere, one where healthy discourse is encouraged and Bestow Austin has it in spades.
What makes someone successful on your team?
Success is delighting people in unexpected ways. For example, we had someone apply but wasn’t eligible. Our team researched a company that might fit their specific case and helped them apply even though it wasn’t with us! This person was literally brought to tears because they were so grateful. We made a difference for someone. That’s success.
Director, Customer Experience
How do you empower your team to be more creative?
Engineers are most engaged when they have the autonomy to make decisions on how things get built. We provide an environment where they can propose ideas, validate them and safely get to production with minimal friction. We don't micromanage decisions. We give people freedom to bring their good ideas to reality.
What does career growth look like on your team?
At Bestow, you are not only free to define your own career path, but encouraged to step outside the boundaries and think outside the box on a daily basis. There are no limits placed on your work and you are entrusted with the responsibility and freedom to identify what problems need to be solved and how to solve them.
