Product Marketing Manager

PolicyGenius, New York

The easy way to compare and buy life insurance

In case this isn't obvious: you need insurance. The distaste you just felt at the word “insurance” is what drives us to upend the industry. Financial protection might never be super fun, but at least it can be easy.

Policygenius is a NYC-based tech startup with a mission to help people get the financial protection they need and have them feel good about it. We are changing a massive industry by making insurance shopping faster, friendlier and more transparent for online consumers. Since our launch in 2014, we’ve achieved rapid growth in a notoriously difficult industry and established ourselves as a pioneer in a now hot sector of FinTech. We're at an exciting inflection point, having raised over $52 million of venture capital, and we're focused on building out our powerhouse team. Think of us as a one-stop-shop for all the financial protection you’ll ever need.

Marketing at Policygenius

The Policygenius marketing team isn’t afraid of tackling a daunting challenge: changing customers’ minds about a distrusted, disliked industry. We’ve flipped insurance marketing on its head, believing that there’s more to this than just cookie-cutter policy selling. Instead, we educate, inform and empower, making the bet that trust and authenticity lead to happy customers. We buckle in for a ride every day, because fintech isn’t easy. Our customer journeys are nuanced and our product mix is complex, but it’s an even match—this team is composed of disciplined problem solvers who always fight for what’s best for the customer.
