"We are excited to start recruiting for our brand new office in Carrollton, helping people build a long and rewarding career with Elephant.”

Elephant says it believes in more care and less cost. It boasts an endorsement from the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper, which called the insurer one of its Top Places to Work in 2016.

Elephant is headquartered in Richmond, Va.
