Pie Insurance
Denver, CO

Product Director

| Greater Denver Area
We are an insurtech company where smart people can see the impact of their work as we tackle meaningful problems together. We think it’s fun to disrupt an industry that has been slow to change. But we aren’t shaking things up for the sake of change, we’re here to solve big problems using technology and an innovative approach to improve how small business owners 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. We hire passionate people who like to work hard, yet we also know that life exists outside the office. Small businesses are the backbone of the economy; talented team members are the backbone of Pie. We are pie-oneering a whole new approach to insurance.
Pie’s Product Management team has a strong bias-to-action. We focus on solving user problems and are deeply committed to meeting business goals, we develop clear product concepts with well-defined objectives, hypotheses, and benefits. As a Director of Product, reporting to our Chief Product Officer, you will be instrumental in helping us make those trade-off decisions as they relate to our insurance systems, leveraging your ability to generate creative solutions to thorny problems. You will be looked upon as a thought leader across our product portfolio and depended upon by our key stakeholders. 
To make sure what we’re building is easy to use, can be brought to market quickly, and actually meets a need, we are passionate about collaboration across Pie. As with most startups, Pie will need to make tough calls about where to invest our time and resources: you will be instrumental in helping us make those trade-off decisions as they relate to our application portfolio and all their constituent stakeholders.
You will have a deep understanding of what collaboration with engineering looks like in a progressive tech company product world. You will be experienced in leading teams of senior people, and have a track record of enabling company success through your managerial and business acumen. A strong plus is an understanding of engineering principles and having participated in building things previously.

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.
