Pie raises an additional $127M in funding


Pie Insurance is an insurtech company tackling meaningful problems. At Pie, we work with small businesses using technology and innovation to improve how they access insurance. Like our small business clients, we are a diverse team of builders, dreamers, and entrepreneurs. So, at the heart of every decision we make is the idea that if it doesn’t serve our clients, it doesn’t serve us. 

Today, all Pie-oneers are working remotely and will continue to do so until it is safe to return to the office. As a remote team member, you will be expected to be available for meetings with team members in other time zones and have access to reliable, high-speed internet.

This role can work remotely and will be expected to travel to the Pie offices up to 20% of the time.

How You’ll Do It

As the VP of People Operations (People Ops) reporting to the VP, People & Talent, you will build and lead Pie’s People Ops team as we scale to support significant organizational growth. The VP of People Ops will lead and continue to develop our People Partner team and people ops functions while building out Total Rewards, Performance & Development and Culture & Engagement centers of excellence. In addition, this role will play a shared role as People Partner to the executive leadership team.

As a Pie culture champion, you will create an outstanding experience for our team members by designing and implementing people programs, systems and processes that scale and drive organizational performance. You will build infrastructure that reinforces our values and improves the culture while developing people strategies that align the business needs. Pie is a data-driven business. In this role, you will lean into leveraging technology and intelligent learning to deliver increasingly better outcomes for the business.

As a Vice President, you support team members to hone and exercise their best judgment and make rapid progress towards goals. Working closely across your team to deliver results, you execute on the strategic People objectives while removing team roadblocks and ensure that teams and projects are appropriately resourced.

To be successful in this role, you must have program design and change management experience and are comfortable thinking creatively and testing out new ideas in a rapidly changing environment. You will be a strategic thinker both inside and out of the People Operations team, working cross-functionally with other teams and thinking through how our People philosophy translates Pie-wide across teams and initiatives.

An Insider's view of Pie Insurance

How does your team reward individual success?

Our Customer Care team rewards success by giving "snaps" in team and company slack channels. We like to verbally recognize people in our team meetings by giving them a shout out and telling them they are valuable to the team and are appreciated! It is important to also be conscious of how people like to be recognized and not put people "on blast".

Seika

Customer Success Working Team Lead

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a Sales Manager, I work closely with Underwriting & Customer Care on improving our processes to be more efficient from quote to issuance. With Marketing, I help with campaign initiatives to roll out to new and old prospects. I also connect with our UX & Product Teams to provide feedback on ways to enhance our online quote flow for our customers.
