Business Development Manager, California at Pie Insurance
Sorry, this job was removed at 11:10 a.m. (MST) on Friday, October 30, 2020
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.
How You’ll Do It
A majority of Pie’s future premium is expected to come from distribution partners such as payroll companies, wholesale agents, and retail agents. As an extension of Pie, these distribution partners must operate with a customer first mentality and share Pie’s goal for disciplined profitable underwriting.
This role reports into our Denver office, but will be based in the South region and requires working knowledge and familiarity of the Southern US market. Everything we do is connected, but we each have different roles. That means we need you to be a leader first and foremost and then executor. We are a start-up. All hands and minds are needed.
This is a senior professional role requiring 6+ years of total working experience. We expect you’ll have a minimum of 2 years experience in workers' compensation or other commercial insurance lines, in addition to 1 year experience working for a carrier, wholesaler or MGA in a regional Partner Management capacity. You will have spent enough time in the commercial insurance partner network to make an immediate impact day one.
