Job Description

Palo Alto, California


Product Manager, Growth 

Next Insurance is a well-funded startup based in Palo Alto, California. Our mission is to radically transform insurance for small businesses by combining world class technology and phenomenal customer service to offer better insurance at a lower price. 

Small business insurance is a $130 billion industry in the US, but more than 90% of small businesses purchase insurance offline through insurance agents, which can take several weeks. More than 30% of small businesses don’t have any insurance at all! 

We aim to transform the commercial insurance industry just like Uber and Airbnb transformed the taxi and hotel industries,. We’re changing a traditionally offline industry to be 100% online - no agents, no paperwork. We’re also working to make insurance accessible to every small business in America. 

Selling insurance to 28 million small businesses across hundreds of different professions is a huge challenge, so we’re looking for a talented, passionate Product Manager that is up to the task. If you’re obsessed with 

customer acquisition and growth, and get excited about acquiring millions of customers and generating billions of dollars in revenue, then we’d love to talk with you.
