Since 2014, we’ve raised over $52 million of venture capital, established ourselves as a pioneer in Fintech and helped more than 4.5 million people get vital coverage for their families.

Product Design at Policygenius

At Policygenius we’re fortunate to have founders and team leadership that recognize design as our primary problem-solving tool--not just a method for producing attractive interfaces. This means no thankless slogs trying to get support on major design/product projects. We’re all aware that our task is to reshape the way real people make informed decisions about their safety nets, and that design plays a major role in those journeys.

You will...

  • Report to the Chief Design Officer and partner with the full product team to identify key problems, find the right solutions, and usher them into reality
  • Contribute to the full product design cycle, from research and ideation, through execution
  • Partner with product design leads and PMs to conduct cross-team design workshops to achieve the best possible solutions
  • Sit next to and work with engineers, designers, and PMs daily, fulfilling our "no surprises" mantra
  • Help shape and participate in our user research and testing (generative and evaluative)
  • Become a champion for our brand guidelines (including design principles, the Pg voice, and visual standards) while helping shape the next iteration of our visual language
  • Rapidly produce concepts and prototypes; knowing when to harness the appropriate fidelity

You are...

  • A product designer with 3+ years of experience shaping complex software products
  • Of the belief that design should be a primary tool for problem-solving
  • Excited to tackle a monster, consumer-facing challenge being experienced by millions everyday
  • Significantly experienced in two of the three main product design disciplines: UI - UX - User Research
  • Comfortable taking the wheel to tackle complex and ambiguous problems
  • Excited to help shape our design culture here at Policygenius and looking to have one of those Lady & The Tramp spaghetti moments with your next employer

You'll get...

  • Company-paid health, dental, vision, life & disability insurance
  • 401(k) plan, FSA & commuter benefits
  • Flexible PTO
  • Training, mentorship and coaching from leadership
  • The opportunity to grow alongside a company shaking up a big, old-fashioned industry
  • Fun, diverse, open-minded coworkers
  • Dog companionship
  • Some fun surprises when you join… (Shhh… It’s a secret!)

An Insider's view of Policygenius

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Think: startup meets productive adult office. The fridge is stocked with La Croix and there's usually a dog or two running around, but there's no ping pong. Everyone works hard and takes the job seriously. Strict "no chuckleheads allowed" policy. People are cool and from a really wide range of backgrounds.

Adam

Senior Product Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

All of the normal challenges of building a modern (fairly cutting edge actually, if I do say so myself), scalable tech stack, just with the added twist of integrating with a bunch of fairly archaic APIs. The insurance industry historically isn't exactly a bastion of modern technology, but we're doing our darnedest to change that.

Trevor

Senior Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Teamwork and problem-solving go a long way on my team and at Policygenius overall. I would say that individual ideas are not only supported but more importantly, encouraged. I'm consistently challenged, but always learning; our environment promotes both individual and professional growth. I'm looking forward to moving to the next level!

Masuda

Customer Success Associate

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision for Policygenius is to be the go-to consumer platform for insurance and financial protection. What Expedia did for travel, we're doing for financial protection. We're already the top platform for under-50 consumers for life insurance and disability insurance, and we're excited to expand that to new categories in 2019!

Jen

CEO

What's something quirky about your company?

So many team members have really interesting stories about their time before Pg. We’ve got trivia champions, ex-magicians, chicken bag experts, and even someone who used to be Madonna’s assistant. It’s all story-telling gold.
