What is your vision for the company?

Millions of people need life insurance but don’t have it because they may feel it’s too complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. We’re here to change that by building a product that truly puts people first. Why? So millions of people can protect their families with access to simple, affordable life insurance.

David Zhang

What projects are you most excited about?

For me, I have always been passionate about building stuff from the ground up and thinking through complex problems; figuring out all the edge cases. I get excited to see the work I do and design come to life flawlessly — it just gives me happiness (insert success kid meme!).
