Metromile, a pay-per-mile car insurance company, announced it will open its third office in Tempe. The office is located at 1150 W. Washington St., near the Priest Drive and Washington light rail station.
“We are really excited to be in Tempe,” said Dan Preston, CEO of Metromile. “We looked at a number of cities but were impressed with Tempe’s business and technology community and diverse talent pool. As we expand our offerings to new states and grow aggressively, we are focused on better serving our customers — Tempe is a great place to attract talent that will help us create fiercely loyal customers.”
Metromile launched in 2011 and operates its headquarters in San Francisco, Calif. with more than 70 employees. The company added its second office in Boston earlier this year. The new Arizona office is 15,000 square feet and will add at least another 130 employees with a strong focus on customer service, sales and claims.
Metromile offers revolutionary pay-per-mile car insurance for the modern driver. Metromile uses technology and a data-driven approach to deliver lower premiums by the mile and personalized data to help customers manage their cars more efficiently and cost-effectively. Metromile’s per-mile insurance is currently available in California, Illinois, Oregon, and Washington but is rapidly expanding to other states in 2015. In January, Metromile and Uber announced an innovative partnership to provide variably-priced, pay-per-mile auto insurance for drivers who use Uber’s rideshare platform. Metromile began offering the insurance product to Uber driver partners in California, Illinois, and Washington in February and will add more states in the coming year.
Metromile will host a Hiring Fair on June 3, 2015 in Tempe.
