An Insider's view of EverQuote

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The reality is career success means little without a healthy balance of life outside of work. At EQ, it has meant reminding each other that whatever we can get done in a day is good enough. Some may be able to do more based on their situation and some won’t. The key is creating safe spaces to be honest, and open to give and receive support.

Alexander Grant

Quality Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I shoot a slack to someone or set up a meeting if it's a more complex problem I'm trying to solve. Typically, everyone is eager to help and put their heads together to solve the problem at hand!

Clara Hunnewell

Manager, SEM and Analytics

How does the company support your career growth?

At EverQuote, I've been able to grow from "intern" to "director of engineering" with lots of mentorship. Leadership sets clear expectations, provides actionable feedback, and creates real opportunities. EverQuote has sponsored formal management training for me, and I have a personal development plan that aligns with my goals beyond my tenure at EQ.

Ian Naval

Director, Ad Engineering

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe is very upbeat and collaborative. Everyone is truly willing and happy to help each other out, support is just a desk away! Outbursts of laughter are the norm throughout the day which lends to a positive feel, but there are also quiet spaces to escape to when needed. I am very much looking forward to days back in the office down the road.
