Product Design at Policygenius

At Policygenius we’re fortunate to have founders and team leadership that recognize design as our primary problem-solving tool--not just a method for producing attractive interfaces. This means no thankless slogs trying to get support on major design/product initiatives. We’re all aware that our task is to reshape the way real people make informed decisions about their safety nets, and that design plays a major role in those journeys.

You will...

  • Sit next to & communicate with engineers and product managers daily, fulfilling our "no surprises" mantra
  • Ask the right questions, articulate decisions, and probe for requirements
  • Conduct user research & testing, but don't need to be an expert in that field
  • Report to the Chief Design Officer and partner with Product leaders to shape product requirements, usher them into reality, and improve the Pg design language along the way
  • Rapidly produce multiple concepts and prototypes; knowing when to harness the appropriate fidelity
  • Balance speed with quality needed to deliver on-brand experiences (e.g. sometimes sidestepping perfection to get things done)
  • Play a coaching role (70% IC/30% mentor) ranging from sole designer on a project to being the design lead on larger initiatives (with teams of 2-3 designers)

You are...

  • A seasoned product designer with 6+ years of experience creating efficient, minimal, and enjoyable experiences
  • Of the belief that design is a problem-solving tool; a vessel to hit business goals and fulfill user needs
  • Excited to tackle an enormous, consumer-facing challenge that is being experienced by millions of people everyday
  • Comfortable creating interfaces across a variety of devices/screens
  • Significantly skilled in two of the three main product design disciplines: UI - UX - User Research
  • Experienced leading individual designers, and delivering feedback to help their designs hit the mark
  • Comfortable taking the wheel to tackle complex and ambiguous problems
  • Excited to shape and reinforce our design culture here at Policygenius and looking to have one of those Lady & The Tramp spaghetti moments with your next employer

You'll get...

  • Company-paid health, dental, vision, life & disability insurance
  • 401(k) plan, FSA & commuter benefits
  • Flexible PTO
  • Training, mentorship and coaching from leadership
  • The opportunity to grow alongside a company shaking up a big, old-fashioned industry
  • Fun, diverse, open-minded coworkers
  • Dog companionship
  • Some fun surprises when you join… (Shhh… It’s a secret!)
