Briza is hard at work creating the most elegant and easy to use infrastructure for connecting insurance carriers with brokers for small business customers - think 'Stripe' but for the insurance industry. We’re creating the first transaction processing rail that enables brokers to offer real time, online, commercial insurance quotes and contracts to small businesses. What we’ve all seen happen to restaurant booking, travel booking, and auto insurance, is now finally coming to the more complex world of commercial insurance. This is the natural evolution of the insurance business into a digitally enabled world. What used to take days over the phone, email and fax, will now happen in minutes.

At Briza, we are committed to building a diverse team and fostering an inclusive work environment. We encourage applications from all qualified candidates, including indigenous peoples, racialized people, people with disabilities, people from gender and sexually diverse communities and/or people with intersectional identities.
