Company Details

 

Berkley_AltMarketsTech_Logo_Color

We started in early 2019 as a small group of technologists with a passion for making insurance better. Today we are working with a team of industry experts who run five different insurance brands and collectively control $1 billion in annual premiums.

 

We believe in an idea and execution meritocracy. In other words, a place where the best ideas win and the people who deliver the most value get the most opportunities.

                                                      

As we grow our team, we are looking for inquisitive, entrepreneurial people who are excited to reimagine the insurance industry.

 

Insurance is too complex. Help us make it better.

 

What we’re looking for

As a Product Manager for Underwriting, you will own the vision, strategy, design, and execution of our Underwriting operations. This does not mean, however, that we want you to unilaterally make all of the decisions. Rather, we expect you to be the chief consensus-builder among a diverse group of stakeholders and team members. You will articulate a vision that inspires your colleagues, design products that delight our customers, change directions when it makes sense to, and relentlessly drive results.

 

Beyond that, we’re looking for someone with a high degree of ownership. And the way we tend to define ownership is in terms of your willingness to look critically at yourself and make changes. Problems are inevitable, and you are going to fail a lot. We are looking for people who will take responsibility for failures, learn from them, and reinvest that learning in their work.

 

What we’ll bring

  • An engaged and supportive leadership team that will invest in you
  • Talented engineering teams to build products with
  • A broad group of industry experts who work closely with us on everything we do
  • A budget for continual improvement
  • Generous retirement plan
  • Excellent medical and dental insurance (and other health benefits)

Responsibilities

  • Delivering Results. You will curate the best ideas, hypothesize their value, and implement the most promising of them. You will constantly re-assess what we have built to make sure we are realizing actual value.
  • Focusing on the Data. You will establish OKRs that define our goals and quantify our results. You will regularly review your indicators for actionable insights and you will host OKR Reviews to create cross-functional alignment.
  • Understanding Our Customers. You will keep yourself and our team highly exposed to customer feedback. You will use this exposure to anticipate customer needs and constantly improve their experiences.
  • Saying No. You will help us choose the right problem to solve next. Sometimes you will have to say no to things. You will consistently weigh short and long term trade-offs while keeping a healthy bias toward the long term.
  • Challenging Status Quo. For various processes, you will understand what we do and why we do it. Then you will work across Business, Operations, Design, Data, and Engineering teams to reimagine how.

Qualifications

  • Strong knowledge of data structures, algorithms, and computing fundamentals
  • Experience driving product vision, go-to-market strategy, and design discussions
  • Experience making important architectural and design decisions, such as data domain modeling, application of design patterns, and design using third party components
  • Ability to read object-oriented code
  • Experience leading software development projects
  • 3-5 years insurance industry experience (preferred)
  • A degree in computer science, engineering, product management or equivalent
