UX Research Intern


Who We Are

We believe insurance is a fundamental part of society. By delivering the best actuarial technology solutions for life insurers, we are doing our part to help everyone provide for themselves and their loved ones in of the midst of major catastrophe, critical illness, or death and have access to a retirement that they deserve.

Integrate™ is a cloud native actuarial modelling and risk management platform for the life insurance market. We are reinventing how risk is modelled and managed so that our customers can provide products that protect the financial well-being of people everywhere.

We are an agile team working within an entrepreneurial business. We are not just a software vendor -- we provide a full range of actuarial consulting services. We believe this differentiates us in the industry as our software is built in close collaboration with our consultants and in partnership with our customers, which provides us a feedback loop and lean mindset not usually possible in a heavily regulated market.

We believe technology will fundamentally change the way actuaries work in the life insurance industry, making them more efficient, effective, and informed. We built Integrate to help them focus on what they do best: lead with confidence. We are not only changing the way actuaries work, we are changing the way actuarial solutions are built and delivered.
