“Jobcase supports and connects millions of workers everyday as they help one another navigate to their ‘better tomorrow’.

We are humbled and proud to have Paw join our leadership team, and I am so excited for the acceleration in breadth and depth of impact we will now have in empowering workers. ”
Before joining Jobcase, Andersen served as CTO for Metromile, a tech disruptor in the auto insurance space, where he led their efforts with machine learning to provide usage-based cost savings and a customer-centric experience. Prior to that, he spent many years in senior leadership at various burgeoning tech companies such as Uber and Groupon. He was most notably a senior leader of engineering in Uber’s Advanced Technology group, where he grew his team from 27 to 700 at a time when Uber was filling up to 10,000 new driver jobs a day.
Andersen is very passionate about missions that evolve society for the better and feels Jobcase’s focus on the challenges of working people is fundamental to the health of our economy. He’s proud of the role he had in creating hundreds of thousands of work opportunities with Uber and recognizes that his new role can help affect change in many other areas of the workforce.
“Jobcase’s mission of ’empowerment through community’ really speaks to me. I love the challenge of creating technology that can help workers achieve a better future,” said Andersen. “It feels like I’m closing the circle on the journey I started at Uber. Beyond the mission, the Jobcase team itself is what sealed the deal. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many smart and passionate people from different teams at the company. The strong culture is really infectious, and I look forward to being a part of helping Jobcase make a difference on a whole new level. “
