An Insider's view of Trupanion

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We’re laid back yet efficient; fast-paced yet compassionate; silly yet emotive. The people here are happiest when they’re driving forward with results that help save pets’ lives. At the same time, every single person knows the absolute catharsis that happens when you spend a good 15 minutes snuggling with a pet on our office floor.

Content Manager

What does your typical day look like?

When I arrive at the beginning of my day, I am always excited to call my hospitals. I review hospital activity reports to help identify engagement, and see how I can assist staff in processing claims through our software more efficiently. This role is exciting, challenging, and is never the same day to day.
