Design at Policygenius

Everyone at Policygenius, from our newest designer to our CEO, understands that the design process is our primary tool for empathy, problem solving, and innovation. Our product process is designed to de-risk what we build before we build it. In fact, the product and design teams focus nearly 70% of their time on Discovery; lining up experiments to validate our riskiest assumptions first. To be successful, we’ve built a balanced team who aims to deeply understand how our real, human users think about their safety nets!

Why Growth Design (Content/SEO) ?

Our entire design team focuses on product thinking and empathy, but it’s the Growth team that’s responsible for customer success, engagement, and retention. Partnering with our award-winning content creators, Growth designers on our Content/SEO team ship lean, targeted tests to turn our readers into users. They’re metrics-minded, and understand which behaviors to look for to measure impact, while shaping a reading experience that emphasizes trust. The Growth teams help users experience that first “a-ha” moment, build trust in our experts and advice, and understand how the Policygenius platform can support their financial protection goals.

About PolicyGenius

About us PolicyGenius, based in NYC, was founded in 2014 by two former McKinsey consultants who saw an opportunity to shift the notoriously outdated insurance industry online and into the hands of consumers. The company now provides the only place online to comparison shop for life, health, long-term disability, renters and pet insurance through its highly accurate quoting engine. Its proprietary Insurance Checkup™ also lets users discover their coverage gaps and find highly tailored solutions for their exact needs.
