The Next Insurance mission is to help entrepreneurs thrive by radically transforming how small business insurance works by leveraging technology and selling directly to our customers online.
U.S. small business insurance is a $135 billion industry in desperate need of disruption just as taxis were a few years ago. 95% of small businesses purchase insurance offline through insurance agents, which is a time consuming and painful experience. Many businesses are over or underinsured because it’s so difficult to navigate the shopping experience. Next Insurance aims to become the first and only one stop shop for small business insurance and to revolutionize the customer experience through a superior customer portal, claims handling experience and supportive relationship that goes beyond insurance.
We’re looking for an experience Growth Product Manger to own a strategic product area for us. Our Growth PMs take on large product areas such as a new line of insurance, a new business vertical or a major part of our purchase funnel.
