Our editorial guidelines

Each of The Zebra's insurance guides is written by a licensed insurance agent. We rely not only upon the expertise of our writers, but also the collective knowledge of professional organizations and industry studies to inform our content. Research is a vital part of our writing process, and our rigorous editorial standards require that every article be reviewed and fact-checked by multiple experts to ensure we provide high-quality, accurate and easy-to-interpret resources.

As insurance regulations and laws change, we update content as quickly as possible, responding to feedback from trusted experts and our own research to provide accurate, up-to-date information.

All Stripes Welcome.

We really like what we do, and we really like the people we get to do it with.

We’re located in Austin, but you don’t have to be: Like many orgs, we’ve pivoted to remote-friendly work. And we’ve built a company culture we’re pretty proud of. With four thriving ERGs, intramural team sports, community and volunteer opportunities, flexible schedules and even Zoom happy hours that don’t suck, we pride ourselves on being a great place to work.
