We challenge the status quo with transformational marketing products using our technology.
In 2008, snuggled in a small office in Mission Valley, San Diego, Underground Elephant took its first step toward advancing the online consumer experience. Starting first in the insurance sector, UE then expanded into other financial services including credit cards, bank accounts, mortgages, and loans. Through savvy software, real-time analytics, transparent platforms, and pure grit, UE continues to increase quality interactions between consumers and providers. Company leadership focuses on growth-oriented, long-term strategies that deliver value—and competitive advantage—to the company and its clients. The company has also been locally and nationally recognized for its innovative culture.
Eight years later, Underground Elephant occupies the Wellman Peck building—a uniquely designed 25,000 sq. ft. space located in the East Village of Downtown San Diego. Now with 100-plus employees and a massive industry footprint, the company values remain focused toward serving consumers first.
