We are excited to announce that Joe Selsavage has joined Metromile as Chief Financial Officer! Joe was most recently the CFO at Hotwire, the leading travel discount site, overseeing their global finance and accounting efforts. He took them from launch to a well-known global company, and we are confident that Joe will be a key player in taking Metromile to the next level. Before Hotwire, Joe spent more than 10 years in accounting and management functions for various organizations in the Washington, D.C. area. To get to know Joe a little better, we asked him to answer some questions to gauge how well he will fit in at Metromile. Spoiler alert: he’s going to be awesome.
What excites you the most about joining Metromile?
I’m super excited to be joining such a fun company that’s disrupting the car insurance industry and growing fast. I look forward to being part of the team!
How do you commute to work?
I live in San Francisco between Noe Valley and Castro, and use Muni to get to work. Editor’s note: Way to go, Joe! We’re all for commuting via public transportation.
Where is your favorite place to road trip to?
Anywhere. I love to spend time traveling and experiencing the world. My last job was at Hotwire, so I learned a lot about how to save money on last minute travel. I can jump in the car or get on a plane any time for a last minute trip. I love to road trip to Tahoe or fly to the east coast (DC, NY or Boston) for the weekend. If I have more time, I’ll go to Brazil.
Which Metromile app feature is most helpful to you and why?
I love the street sweeping alerts. As someone living in the city with a car that I only use occasionally, the street sweeping alerts have saved me many times from getting a ticket.
We are eager to see what the future holds as Joe steps into this important role. Speaking of important roles, we are hiring a ton in SF, Tempe and Boston! Check out our job listings if you are interested in joining the Metromile team during this pivotal time.
