To build a startup that is growing beyond venture level standards while keeping profitability in sight is no easy task. This growth was recently acknowledged by Inc Magazine when Obie was honored to be named 9th Fastest Growing Insurance Company, as well as earned a spot on the Inc 5000 list. But just building a fast-growing company isn’t enough—that’s why we are focused on building a great place to work as well. recently recognized the industry’s top insurance companies to work for in 2022, placing Obie on the list. Recognitions like this don't come easy, however. 

Earlier this year, Obie staff were given the opportunity to complete an anonymous survey. These surveys collect critical information that help determine the working environment of a company and are what Business Insurance uses to determine the Best Places to Work list. Simply completing the survey is not enough to be selected, as companies must meet a series of criteria in response data to be included on the annual list. The employee nomination and engagement are what make this title an honor and accomplishment. Knowing that Obie employees truly stand behind the company as being one of the best companies to work for in insurance.

Company Values

One of the ways in which Obie intentionally works towards building a great place to work, is by setting values to aim for. There are four values Obie has articulated as “legs we stand on”.

Do Good

Everything we do is rooted in respect. Respect for our customers, our team, and ourselves. We strive to be empathetic, helpful, and trustworthy.

Be Curious

No question is a dumb one. Obies love tackling new problems, thinking outside of the box, and pursuing big ideas to grow through.

Play Fair

We built our product on honesty and transparency. We ask all Obies to work with integrity and to pursue a diverse and inclusive atmosphere.

Be Flexible

Life happens. Whether it’s a work project that requires creative problem solving or a family emergency that takes you away from work—we know how to prioritize what matters.

Obie Technology

While the world of insurance may not first strike everyone as the obvious, most exciting industry, being part of a fast-growing insurtech startup like Obie might just change your mind. The technology Obie has built enables real estate investors to quickly get an instantly bindable quote for rental properties that are 1-4 units in size. And for other types of properties, Obie is able expedite the process, beating industry-average wait times for a quote and helping investors get the coverage when they need it. 

Because of our industry-leading tech capabilities, this has also positioned Obie as the go-to insurtech for many platforms that cater to real estate investors, such as Stessa, Doorvest, Baselane, Green Doors—and more. 

Mortgage and lending companies have also jumped on this trend, of wanting to offer an embedded insurance experience. This helps real estate investors satisfy insurance requirements set by lenders, and reduces the friction in acquiring properties.
