About the job

Do you consider yourself a wizard with numbers? Take pride in leading projects using your deep knowledge of accounting principles?

If you bursted out with ‘yes’ then we would be excited to have you join our team of math nerd strategists, user flow obsessed designers, result-driven developers and epic storytelling marketers. We’re an entrepreneurial team that value doers, people who think outside the box, and are not afraid to experiment.

String and Key is a research and development studio that is building digital platforms that will change the way people manage and protect their money. The first business we built is Wyshbox, which is a whole new way to talk about and sell life insurance to a younger audience. Customers build their own personalized policies around their “Wyshes” — the things that they want to have happen, if anything happens to to them. From sending their kids to college to shooting their ashes into space – this isn’t your traditional insurance. It’s 100% online on the web, iOS, or android. No agents and no hassles.
