Member Support Specialist
Branch is on a mission to make insurance less expensive, so more people can be covered. We use data, tech, and automation to simplify insurance from start to finish — cutting out the long, bait-and-switch quotes and unnecessary costs in the traditional insurance process. Then we pass those savings along to our members. The result? Prices in seconds. Hundreds in savings. But we’re not just changing the way home and auto insurance works. We want to change what it means to “work in insurance,” too. Restoring insurance to its original purpose — a force for communal good. Together, we’re getting back to getting each other’s back.
