Introduction:

The Zebra, named a Best Place to Work in Austin four years running, is revolutionizing how connected consumers research and shop for insurance. We intentionally strive to build diverse teams that feel inclusive for all. Our motto is "All Stripes Welcome," and we put that into practice by valuing both traditional and non-conventional backgrounds and perspectives. Our Zeebs are passionate about learning, growing, & working together to tackle exciting problems.

The Zebra is looking for hard-working, motivated professionals to join our lively call center and tight-knit team. You’ll be the first point of contact for our customers shopping for insurance on the nation’s leading insurance comparison site. Your role will be to turn insurance shoppers into long-term customers and brand champions of The Zebra.

To be a Sales Representative at The Zebra, you will need to attain your General Lines Property & Casualty License. The best part is, we will cover your training, studying, and licensing cost!  Don’t let NOT having a P&C license hold you back from applying for this role.

Schedule:

This is a full-time, 37 hour/week role paid for 40 hours/week. Working hours are 7:00AM - 9:00PM Monday - Friday and 9:00AM - 5:30PM on Saturdays.  With our growing Agency, hours are always subject to change.

Our agents start off 100% remote. Every licensed employee must conduct business from their primary residence in Texas. All new hires will need to relocate to Texas by the time of their start date.

Salary:

Our sales agents usually make between $45k-60k annually in their first year (but with base rates and an uncapped incentive structure, some of our senior agents hit $85K+ annually)! You will receive an incentive guarantee from day one (1) of employment until you are incentive eligible. There are also overtime opportunities available.

What You'll Do:

  • Answer inbound sales calls from customers who need assistance with purchasing various insurance products
  • Quote and sell through multiple insurance carriers and quoting platforms
  • Cross-sell customers to meet all of their insurance needs
  • Maintain a high level of production while providing professional service in a fast paced sales environment
  • Opportunities to learn and grow

What We're Looking For:

  • Prior sales experience is NOT required but a Motivated, Positive, and Solution Oriented Attitude is!
  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment and love talking with people
  • Ability to be flexible and evolve rapidly with the company’s needs
  • Consistently meet sales goals

Experience that Will Impress the Heck Out of Us

  • You already have a TX Property & Casualty (General Lines)
  • Excellent communication skills - written, verbal and listening
  • Value self-awareness, intellectual honesty, judgment, emotional intelligence & positive energy
  • Prefer an environment where you can add real value and contribute your ideas
  • Believe everyone is entitled to the same level of respect, regardless of their position or title
  • Passion for delivering a superior experience to our customers & one another
  • Work hard because you love what you do, but maintain work / life balance

 

Benefits & Perks:

Inclusive and healthy environments are crafted intentionally. All of our employees can join and participate in (or create your own!) Employee Resource Groups. Here are some other wonderful perks of working here:

  • Competitive Compensation & Stock Option Offering (base Income + Monthly Bonus = Avg of $25-30/hour, if fully licensed)

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
