Before the dawn of everything internet, insurance was intimate and personal. You walked down the street to chat with your broker and the risk to your business, your livelihood, was covered with a handshake. Today is different. The average insurance policy for a mom+pop store’s trades through a dozen different hands and traverses a maze of systems and processes. Few are accountable and fewer know the whole story.
This is just a taste of the type of big problem we want you to solve.
WHO YOU ARE
You’re working at a startup with a lifespan near its finish. You’re the talented member of a team at a popular technology company looking for the opportunity to have more control and leadership. You’re the workhorse at an agency, tired of coding products for promotions instead of real users.
SOME SIGNS YOU MIGHT BE READY
Excellent product judgment: You have an in-depth understanding of what makes a user experience good or bad, can debate the merits of kanban vs scrum vs your own home-grown model, and have a strong intuition for what people want to do.
Appreciation for detail: You easily recognize aesthetic and functional details and can make pragmatic decisions about what details are actually important.
Leadership: Others naturally look to you for guidance. You understand group dynamics and can organize chaotic situations.
Writing ability: You could write final text for UI strings, marketing copy, or press releases. Your writing is pithy, clear, and in command of tone.
WHAT YOU’LL OWN

Lead the discovery, technical development, and launch of MVPs and scale products.
Manage the entire product life cycle from strategic planning to tactical activities.
Breakdown the product vision into user stories, write UACs, prioritize features, build consensus, and coordinate product schedules with a team of engineers and designers.
