#WeAreArity Wednesday: Monica Dirk

In our #WeAreArity series, we shine a spotlight on Arity employees each week. Meet Monica Dirk from our Analytics team.

When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…

At Arity, I work with state regulators to file and get approval for our driving score models so that insurance companies can better price their customers’ policies. We help make it possible for people to pay for insurance based on how they actually drive.

In your own words, what is Arity?

Arity is a technology company on a mission to disrupt mobility in all the right ways. The products we create empower people with the data and information they need to do their part in making transportation smarter, safer, and more useful for everyone. It’s also home to a lot of really, really smart people – I’ve always felt lucky and humbled to get to work with everyone here.

My favorite mode of transportation is…

Walking, especially down the lakefront or anywhere near water.

On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…

Experimenting in the kitchen, hunting down the best vegan burger in Chicago, or exploring the city with friends.

If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?

Anything fighting to improve animal rights and welfare. I’ve cared about this cause my whole life because I think the implications go way deeper than simply improving the lives of animals. There are major environmental and cultural impacts as well.

Most people don’t know…

I am Taco Bell’s number one customer.

The theme song of my life is…

Recently, probably “Go” by The Black Keys. I’ve been out of town five weekends so far this summer, everywhere from Talkeetna, AK to Suttons Bay, MI.

Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?

Whatever the driver wants to do is fine by me!

Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?

100% yes – kind of odd since I work at a telematics company, but I actually hate driving….totally counting down the days until autonomous vehicles become mainstream.

Favorite innovation pioneer?

Lin Manuel Miranda
