Our Values

  • We choose to build.

    We are builders who live to see our ideas become real. We don’t wait, we create. Construct. Iterate. Improve. We always strive to raise the standard, but we understand this can be a process. We don’t let the quest for perfection keep us from getting started. We balance our long term vision with practical needs of our clients and business today.

  • We help people.

    We make products and experiences that help people protect what matters most—their loved ones. The things we create are our vehicles for having a tangible and positive impact on the people our clients serve. We take that responsibility to heart and aspire to let it inform everything we do.

  • We matter to each other.

    Care. Kindness Collaboration. Individual actions may seem small, but the combined impact can be huge. So treat others the way they want to be treated —customers, clients, partners and the person sitting next to you. If we do this right, we will create a workplace where everyone feels they belong and products that speak to many needs and perspectives.

  • Look before you leap…but leap.

    We trust ourselves and each other to make the best decisions we can—in the moment, with the information available to us. We consider perspectives outside of our immediate sphere—we look up, we look out, we look forward—we stay connected to the larger business context and goals. We are keenly aware of the ripple effects of our actions.

  • We act with generous curiosity.

    We are driven by curiosity. We ask questions of ourselves and of each other, always evolving our thinking. We’re open to new ideas in all forms and from all places - other industries, personal passions and curiosities, and every corner of our organization. We hold fast to the belief that our diversity is our strength. Different backgrounds. Different experiences. Different point of views. We together make our work unique. And because we are always listening, we are always learning.

  • We aspire to make money and make a difference.

    We don’t just work for our client. We aspire to partner with them and to bring them a renewed sense of mission, energy, and possibility as we recruit them to our cause - building things that matter. We are obligated to disagree with our clients where our experience and vision tell us it can be helpful for them.

Employee Spotlight Todd Rodgers, Interim Co-CEO & CTO

What brought you to Haven Technologies?

  1. The opportunity to disrupt a complex, data-intensive industry—in this case to figure out how to really make life insurance available to people in a customer-centric, efficient, and easy way
  2. The ability to build a team from the ground up, creating a supportive and inquisitive culture of respect and positive impact
  3. Working with leading-edge technology to create a large-scale, industry-leading platform.

What is your proudest achievement during your time at Haven Technologies?

Several come to mind. First, the ability to be able to help create the technology for a customer to apply, be underwritten, and have their policy issued all on the same platform is a highlight. Also seeing our company grow to 100 (and then 200, and then 300 and then…) and truly become an entity that delivers huge value not just to our client and the industry but to every customer that goes through our process.

How would you describe your hiring philosophy? What traits do you look for when considering whether to add someone to the Haven Technologies team? Is there anything unexpected?

I weigh both technical ability and positive impact on team culture heavily. On the tech side, I’m generally less focused on specific language expertise and more interested in the ability to think through and solve problems, communicate ideas and thought processes clearly, and a broad expertise in various aspects of software development. On the culture side, I look for individuals who will reinforce our culture of building things that matter and mattering to each other.

Is it true you have a farm? Any favorite things to grow? Anything you’ve been hoping to grow but haven’t yet?

Farm is definitely an overstatement—technically when not in the city I do live in an old barn that is part of what used to be an apple farm. My wife and I do have a vegetable garden — it started as a way of teaching our kids, but we’ve gained an appreciation for what it takes to grow food using organic approaches, such as the importance of soil health and crop rotation. We’ve had successes with tomatoes, corn, okra, and we are continuing to expand and experiment with what grows best in our soil and climate.
