Not just another startup, we fight fraud!

Since opening our doors, we've raised $40MUSD, signed contracts with over 60 insurers across the world, been designated as one of the best SaaS firms in Europe, and been cited amongst the top 100 AI companies globally.

After successfully building a globally successful B2B product for fraud detection, we're executing now on claim automation, which will touch insurers, their partners and their customers (all of us).

If you are someone motivated by meaningful work in an international context, Shift may just be the spot for you!
