About Matic

Who are we?

Matic is a digital insurance agency built to simplify your whole world of insurance. Working at Matic means working collaboratively towards one common goal; we are one team with one dream. We have a fast-paced culture that is driven by quality, transparency, and fun. We have offices in Arizona, Ohio, and Ukraine.

What am I going to do when I join Matic?

We are developing several products for customers to get insurance, integration with our partners, and a back portal for our insurance agency. We have core products in several smaller services, that solve a single business goal. You will collaborate with our cross-functional teams to ship new, impactful features or new products to the market.

Why are we different?

Working in small teams with a lot of influence and, therefore responsibility, we are changing the insurance market in the USA. So we prefer to work with generalists who can deliver high-quality work and be flexible.
