Coalition has experienced tremendous growth by helping organizations of all sizes solve real-world problems and by remaining true to our founding values of character, humility, responsibility, authenticity and diversity. That’s why we are proud to be named one of Inc’s Best Places to Work in 2021.

About The Role

Insurance is a servicing heavy industry. We work with both brokers and policyholders, and thrive to provide the best experience for them. This includes the insurance policies they purchase, and more importantly, the customer support experience when they have questions, need help with solving problems and file claims. As the Product Manager for business systems, you will own all the systems used by our Sales, Business Development, Customer Support, Underwriting and Claims team. You will work with them closely to provide the best servicing experience to brokers and policyholders, as well as making them more productive. This is one of the company's strategic product areas and has a material impact on business outcomes.

You'll identify key problems we tackle, get feedback from key stakeholders, prioritize features to plan a roadmap, and work across the company to build innovative solutions. A good product manager thinks creatively, empathizes with their customers, and deeply understands the domain. A great product manager continually creates business value, delights customers, and improves company infrastructure to unlock faster development.

We expect a balance of constant incremental improvement with appetite for larger opportunities. When you find fundamental things that need attention, you’re willing to fix the root issue and invest in projects that benefit the company long term. You’ll manage your roadmap in a clear, consistent manner, and help everyone understand what success looks like.
