Senior Technical Product Manager

Everyone needs car insurance, but let’ s be honest, nobody is really excited about it. We get that. That’ s why we’ re building Clearcover to offer people the right coverage, in the moments that matter, for the lowest cost possible.

Most insurance companies spend a lot of their customers’ money on wasteful things like expensive commercials, celebrity endorsements, and (really) outdated systems. And the more they spend, the more their customers have to pay. Clearcover is different. We use advanced technology and focus on moments insurance actually matters to people so we can offer great coverage at way lower prices.

To do this, we’ re fundamentally changing how an insurance company works. And we need your help. Are you a technical PM who has been looking to make a huge impact on a growing organization?

We are looking for a Senior Technical Product Manager to work directly with our VP of Product to help build a world class insurance product. We need someone who has extensive experience building out comprehensive backlogs and writing user stories using Behavior Driven Development scenarios. You must be comfortable owning a backlog and running grooming and planning sessions with a development team.

We need someone who is deeply technical and understands APIs, relational data models, and can write top notch SQL. You also will need to build solutions with developers so you must be willing to get your hands dirty in implementation details while conveying the business and product vision.

We promise this is the most fun you’ ll have in your career and also the hardest thing you’ ll do. Still interested? Here’ s what you need to know:

Roles & Responsibilities:
  • Work with the VP of Product to define the product backlog and do weekly prioritization 
  • Write detailed User Stories with Behavior Driven Design Acceptance Criteria 
  • Elicit requirements from the VP of Product as well as other business stakeholders 
  • Facilitate Sprint Grooming, Sprint Planning, and technical architecture meetings with the Engineering team 
  • Write detailed API documentation that can be shared with third parties 
  • Be a thorough UAT tester, validating user stories throughout the entire technology stack 
  • Be able to write and design entity relationship diagrams and be able to test them using SQL 
  • Think like the customer and always put them first.

Prior Experience & Professional Qualities: 
  • Bachelor’ s in Information Systems, Computer Science, or related field. 
  • 5 years as a BA, product owner, or product manager in an Agile Scrum Environment 
  • Highly proficient in SQL 
  • At least 2 years writing Acceptance Criteria in the form of BDD scenarios 
  • At least 2 years working on API driven applications and experience writing API documentation
  • Natural curiosity and a passion for providing the best user experience possible 
  • Previous insurance experience is not needed. 
  • High levels of energy, integrity and curiosity 
  • A bias for action and willingness to be accountable for your actions 
  • A sense of humor is also a must. We’ re getting funnier but we can still be funnier-er.

We’ re offering competitive pay, equity, and benefits.
Agile Scrum, SQL, BDD, APIs
