About the Company

Slope Software was founded in 2016 as a response to the headaches experienced in using other actuarial software by brothers-in-law Andy Smith and Taylor Perkins, a modeling actuary and software developer, respectively. The vision was to create a modeling software that is drag-and-drop intuitive, limitlessly scalable, transparent, and flexible with its data input and output. The result was SLOPE, a cloud-native actuarial modeling and analysis platform built with the user experience at the forefront of its design on top of a modern software architecture that is transforming the lives of actuaries working in the insurance and retirement sectors.
