An Insider's view of DAIS Technology

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There is a lot of positivity radiating around the office. People are energized about the many improvements and low hanging fruit to remedy the situation that small to mid-sized insurance companies face. This a problem we are absolutely going to solve, and we’re going to have fun doing it.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

A lot of tech improvements are incremental; it's about small changes to existing tech. It is different at DAIS, we have the opportunity to true transform the insurance industry, and it’s pretty fun. Seeing the adoption and delight of our users when we solve problems is amazing, and solving these complicated challenges is truly rewarding.
