Business Analyst

Do you want to make a difference in the world? Would you like to join a group of dedicated, professional change-makers who come to work every day to do just that? As a social enterprise, we believe that business can and should be a powerful force for positive social change.

The Redwoods Group is not a traditional insurance company. We aim to make the world a better place through the inspired application of insurance data and a deep commitment to the broad communities within which we live and serve. We tackle very serious issues with very serious stakes – from child sexual abuse to drowning and other accidents. Insurance is the means to fulfilling our mission to Serve Others.

For us, financial profit is important, but only as a metric of sustainability. We are a hybrid non-profit and for-profit company called a B Corp (or benefit corporation). By providing property, casualty, and workers’ compensation insurance products alongside management consulting services to YMCAs, Jewish Community Centers, Boys and Girls Clubs, and non-profit resident camps across the nation, we help reduce injuries and save lives.  We are passionate about making the world a safer place.
