The Corvus Mission

Corvus’s mission is a simple one: to make the world a safer place. This isn’t just a high-flown idea — Corvus is actively helping our policyholders to predict and prevent adverse events, as well as supplying the coverage that helps them withstand events when they do happen. In addition to helping our policyholders, Corvids are given the support they need to help make their worlds — big and small — safer, through a number of Corvus-led initiatives.

Meet the Corvus Flock

A tech startup team with insurance DNA. Our team has decades of experience in commercial insurance and decades more building and growing technology-enabled companies.

We’re underwriters, data scientists, product builders and engineers united by a mission: to make the world a safer place by helping organizations mitigate or eliminate the impact of adverse events. We’re inspired by the intelligent, tool-building corvid family of birds that gives us our name. We’re excited to meet you. Welcome to the Flock.

In the Binoculars: Michelle Darby, Senior Manager of Software Engineering

We sat down with Michelle to get her perspective on growth at Corvus, what goes into fostering (and maintaining) a positive culture, as well as the future for the software engineering team. 

Corvus Culture

The Corvus team has a set of values that guide our company culture. We strive to understand the root issues faced by our customers and team. We challenge the status quo by questioning existing practices, thinking differently, and trying new things. We communicate transparently and honestly. We empower everyone – at all levels of the business. We do the right thing, acting with integrity to foster trust. And we are proud of insurance — because taking pride in a force for good needs no apology.

Most of all, we have fun building the future of insurance.
