Riskbook is dedicated to improving the daily lives of reinsurance brokers and underwriters through a 'digitally native' reimagining of today's placement process. With Riskbook, brokers can easily share their risks with a worldwide audience of underwriters, who are in turn empowered to search and filter for risks that best match their appetite.
When starting Riskbook, Jerad Leigh (CEO) quickly noticed that being based and employing solely in London had its disadvantages: a hugely competitive environment and limited talent pool. Together with the CTO, they decided that being a remote-first company would solve this problem, allowing for a quicker international expansion and access to talent with diverse experiences in start-ups around the world. They began looking for a way to hire their expert remote talent as full-time employees, as well as a company with a truly global reach so they could offer this service to all of their team. That's when they connected with Omnipresent.
A tailored solution
Omnipresent worked around Riskbook's specific challenges to provide a tailored solution to hire two employees, one in Germany and the other in Italy. Omnipresent delivered a quick, seamless service. Riskbook was able to hire their excellent employee in Berlin with Omnipresent's support which included assisting the employee and ensuring his onboarding process was easy and straightforward. Omnipresent also helped set-up the employee with a local German healthcare provider and sorted out the complex country regulations, and language barriers, for Riskbook.
