Meet our founder and CEO: Darryl Rawlings

Darryl is not your typical CEO. From his "uniform" of shorts, a t-shirt, and flip-flops, to the time he spends lounging on the floor with office dogs, he laughs in the face of conformity and traditionalism. While he demands excellence from everyone he meets, he also inspires excellence, so it’s no wonder he has revolutionized the pet industry. From the day Darryl founded Trupanion, his one and only goal has been to help pets live longer, healthier, happier lives. And he wants to do that for your pet, too. 
We love pets. Period.

We don’t just believe in the human-pet bond, we live it – every day. In our completely pet-friendly office, we are surrounded by dogs and cats who inspire us to do great work. We have two puppy play areas in our building and pet beds and blankets at every cubicle to keep our pets warm and happy. When we say the office has “gone to the dogs,” we mean it literally and with the most love possible. 

undefinedOur Story, Our Promise

Trupanion is dedicated to providing you with the best pet insurance plan possible to help easily and safely protect your pets. This is our promise to you.

We will provide one simple plan that covers injuries, illnesses, diagnostic testing, surgeries, medications, and lab work. Your plan will be easy for both you and your veterinarian to use.

We will offer customizable deductibles so you can afford to insure your pet, no matter your budget.

We will reimburse 90% of covered costs with no hidden fees, no "reasonable costs," and no payout limits.

We are pet lovers too, and we want to be the best we can be. Let us know what you think! We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    I have been working at Trupanion full-time (More than 3 years)


    A group of hard working, compassionate people! Everyone is always trying to do better than we previously have.


    Growing a business can have its hurdles. There is a lot of change and with some back pedaling to be better.

    Advice to Management

    Change is great and I love the fact that we are evolving, but I would like to see a system in place that would allow another look before jumping in head first. Great intentions, but there can be a lack of perspective if you implement changes to quickly.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Trupanion (Seattle, WA) in September 2016.


    Trupanion is constantly advertising on Craigslist, multiple times a day even, month after month.
    You spend a crazy amount of time applying online and your information is then given to (probably sold) a dozen spammers that clog your business email.
    I think the "job opening" posts are a revenue generating scam for them.
    Don't waste your time.

    Interview Questions

    • I am completely qualified (and tri-lingual) and got insipid questions. I think they only want people just like themselves. I am very suspect of gushing evals by 'current employees'. They don't ring true.   Answer Question
