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 projects. 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...

  • 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
  • Own product design, end-to-end, from research and ideation, through execution
  • Lead project work with autonomy and authority, facilitating cross-team workshops to achieve the best possible solutions
  • Sit next to and work with engineering leads and PMs daily, fulfilling our "no surprises" mantra
  • Plan and conduct user research and testing (generative and evaluative)
  • Rapidly produce concepts and prototypes; knowing when to harness the appropriate fidelity
  • Play a hands-on coaching role (60% IC / 40% 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 product designer with 7+ years of experience shaping complex products
  • Of the belief that design should be a primary tool for problem-solving
  • Excited to tackle a monster, consumer-facing challenge being experienced by millions everyday
  • Significantly experienced in two of the three main product design disciplines: UI - UX - User Research
  • Experienced leading 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 promote 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 [for relevant roles]
  • 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!)
