Company adds insurance jobs in Chicago
Posted on January 31, 2018
One company is opening a new headquarters and creating more insurance jobs in Chicago.
Snapsheet, provider of virtual claims technology for the personal and commercial insurance marketplace, to open the company’s new headquarters at 1 N. Dearborn St. in Chicago. The new office is designed to accommodate Snapsheet’s tremendous growth and marks the start of an exciting new chapter for the company, which was founded in 2011 with only four employees. Last year Snapsheet grew more than 150 percent to more than 420 employees and it expects to add an additional 150 in 2018.
“Snapsheet’s incredible growth shows what happens when you combine an innovative company with Chicago’s unparalleled workforce and thriving tech community,” Mayor Emanuel said. “This is Snapsheet’s latest milestone, not their last one. I look forward to watching this company’s continued progress and the possibilities they create for Chicago’s residents.”
“Snapsheet has had so much success over the last several years. It was time to move into a bigger space to accommodate our growing team, and we couldn’t be happier in our new space,” said Brad Weisberg, Snapsheet’s CEO and Co-founder. “Our biggest priority with the new office was to build a space that encourages creativity, collaboration and most importantly, a space where people are excited to be at work every day.”
Snapsheet will occupy the entire sixth floor of its new building, which is more than double the size of the previous office at 52,000 sq. feet, and features open collaboration areas, lounge spaces, a game room, and access to a rooftop deck and a fitness center.
Included in the 270 employees hired last year was three C-suite additions: Chief People Officer Sarah Doll, CTO Dan Colomb and COO Andy Cohen.
Snapsheet is the pioneering provider of virtual claims technology to personal and commercial auto insurance carriers. The Chicago-based company services major auto insurance carriers through Snapsheet’s Virtual Insurance Claims Exchange platform, improving the estimation process for auto repairs from virtual photo submission to final repairs and payment.
