About Huckleberry

Huckleberry offers workers' compensation insurance for small businesses, powered by technology.

Mission

At Huckleberry, we're on a mission to make workers' comp work for small businesses. Over the last decade, technology has changed the way we run companies – from accounting, to tax preparation, to payment processing. But business owners are still forced to buy workers' comp insurance via an offline process that can take weeks to complete.

We want to change that by building an elegant workers' comp product that is simple, fast, and 100% online.

Leadership

  • Bryan O'Connell

    CEO

    Bryan's career has spanned insurance and tech - he started out in the actuarial department of Canada Life, before joining a San Francisco based venture capital fund where he invested in technology startups. On the weekends, he can generally be found testing the limits of his health insurance on a pair of skis.

    Bryan holds a first class honors degree in Actuarial Science from University College Dublin and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

  • Steve Au

    CTO

    Steve brings over 17 year of consumer and enterprise technology experience to Huckleberry, most recently leading product and software engineering at Breathometer. He's an avid cyclist, but these days is more likely to be chasing his four-year old around the living room than chasing the peloton up an incline.

    Steve holds a BA in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley.

  • Andrew Huynh

    VP Data Science

    Realizing the positive correlation between college drop-outs and startup success, Andrew left UC San Diego's PhD program in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence just shy of completing his dissertation to move to San Francisco and build companies. He recently perfected the art of one armed coding, after his preferred sport of rock climbing gave him yet another broken bone.

    Andrew holds a BS in Computer Science from the University of California, San Diego.
