About the company

Otonomi is a venture-backed seed-stage insurtech startup that is tackling the global and persistent issue of supply chain delays and disruptions. Our solution transforms cargo insurance policies into fast, cost-effective, and transparent digital products. Powered by our proprietary technologies in data-activated triggers, smart contracts, and integrated digital wallets, we reduce claim resolution times from 45 days to 45 minutes, lowering admin costs by 75%. Our algorithmic underwriting model and advanced risk scenario capabilities unleash new markets while achieving unparalleled profitability.

The insurance industry has been largely untouched by tech, so the opportunity here is huge: the global logistics insurance market is valued at $50B+ per year and growing, and its technical transformation is only just beginning.

Who we are

We’re a growing team of finance, supply chain, web2 and web3 veterans hailing from Citi, LogMeIn, Nissan, and other corners of the fintech and software universe who share a common goal of building innovative products for an enormous industry in great need of technical innovation.

We are backed by Lloyd’s of London, one of the largest insurance conglomerates in the world, and venture capital specializing in logistics, insurtech, and web3.

You will be part of an early team of passionate high-achievers, working closely with the CTO, CEO, and stakeholders such as insurance clients, shipping customers, and investors to bring Otonomi’s mission to life.

On our road to a Series A fundraise, we’re looking for someone who is comfortable with ambiguity and has a strong desire to work both autonomously and in groups.
