About us

The team at Whale Insurance Solutions is made up of experienced insurance and technology veterans who have combined forces to launch an InsurTech brokerage that offers innovative services. Cover whale provides the most convenient platform online, meaning it’s easy for agents like yourself to get quotes quickly!

As a fast-growing start-up company that's already filling the trucking insurance gap, we have become both innovative and able to grow quickly. Our database administrator will keep our system running smoothly 24/7 so it can continue being an engine for innovation in this space!

Our company is unlike any other. We offer a dynamic and collaborative culture where employees care deeply for their users, leaving egos at the door in order to provide an unmatched experience- something that we believe can't be done without passion or drive from each individual member of our team!

We pledge by the principle of Work hard, play harder and make sure we do not leave anything on our court. Of course, sometimes it is necessary to take a break from work for some fun!

That’s why when you come across one another in Slack channels or at tournaments - jokes are always welcome but never inappropriate as long they don't go too far just like any other professional situation should be handled professionally.

A few words from me: I am so delighted that there exists an entire industry ready-made with enough room inside its framework where IT professionals can thrive without feeling constrained solely because their field entails interacting directly with clients day after day; allowing them freedom unheard until now
