Way back in 1991, Eddie Price, an entrepreneur by nature, started his own insurance agency. Carolina Insurance, was founded in the small town of Forest City, NC. As the agency grew, Eddie realized that he would need to move from the world of paper to the world of technology. This would allow him to continue to grow as an agency and service his customers. The agency needed an agency management system so he built one. He decided what he wanted in a system and off he went. Eddie began exploring other agency management systems.
Time for School
It was not long before he came to the conclusion that they were expensive. And he was not finding exactly what he wanted in a system. So, he took programming courses and began to develop his own. Eddie was an insurance agent by day, a programmer by night. The team began using his system in his agency and named it Jenesis, after his daughter, Jenna.
It was not long before some of his agent buddies expressed an interest in the system. So, Eddie loaded his truck with a full size PC, a 17-inch monitor and 12 floppy disks, and headed out to demo his product. And, as luck would have it, he sold his first system! Then, another! Before he knew it, a new business had formed.
Jenesis is Born
Jenesis Software was incorporated in 1999, and it now is fortunate to have agencies using the system throughout the US. Jenesis is still based in Forest City, NC. Eddie also still owns his agency, Carolina Insurance, which is operated out of the same building as Jenesis Software. The same care and commitment Eddie has always shown for agency customers is shared by the entire Jenesis team. There is nothing more important than providing personal service and a quality product! Because it’s built by an insurance agent, Jenesis has an incredible foundation that has only gotten better over time. Our software is our pride and our customers are our passion!

Building on a new way of thinking and working
We obsess over quality. Our team provides the best personal service possible to all of our clients. No job should be without challenge. At Jenesis, expect to work with a team and independently. We are small, which means you will support each of us. Our team pulls together even when tasks fall outside of your day-to-day responsibilities. While some of us work in our home office in Forest City, others work from home.
Hours of Operation
Our published hours are 8:45 am to 5:15 pm EST, Monday through Friday, but this does not mean that we don’t occasionally go the extra mile and work extra hours. Jenesis doesn’t have a standard time-away policy. We have found that we don’t need it. You will find that people rarely call in sick, and you will be able to take time away as needed.
Our team is a very diverse group, as you can see from our bios. If you have the right stuff on paper, you will interview with each member of our team, as, It’s very important to us that we have the right fit for our team. We want to know that you will work hard, but have fun. You will spend a lot of time with us. We look forward to Jenesis family outings during the summer on the lake and in the winter on the ski slopes (or in the lodge, for those of us that don’t ski). You may even do the occasional 5k with us.
As a Jenesis team member, you will help us grow Jenesis and will not use economy as an excuse for not growing. You, like the rest of us, will play a part in growing Jenesis. It’s about referrals – you will provide excellent service and an awesome product. So now, if you like what you see, you may go to our current job openings to apply.
