Haven Life Insurance Agency is an insurtech innovator at MassMutual that offers a new way to get life insurance online that's actually simple. It is composed of 250+ New York City-based engineers, marketers, designers, data geeks, and insurance nerds.

We combine the culture of a startup with the stability and backing of a Fortune 500 company to create an environment that's truly unique. Our diverse team is composed of smart, collaborative people who think big, execute quickly and don't take themselves too seriously. We're located in New York's Flatiron District and in case you're wondering, yes, we provide free snacks. Cold brew too.

If you're creative, professional and kind, we'd love to hear from you.


ABOUT THIS ROLE:

We're looking for a curious, creative product manager to boost the product experience closest to the consumer for Haven Life. You'll be improving the online experience of purchasing life insurance at havenlife.com - both in our direct-to-consumer offerings and by building new tools that allow agents to sell our Haven Life branded products. You will be working cross-functionally with legal, compliance, underwriting, and actuaries to fully understand complex insurance products and business processes. The products and features you build here in many cases will be first-in-the-industry experiences, and you’ll play a key role in bringing the life insurance purchase process into the modern era. 

In this role, you’ll run your own scrum team of developers and quality assurance engineers and collaborate with product designers and business analysts to execute the product roadmap to meet our business needs. 


WHAT YOU WILL DO:

  • Develop the product strategy that supports the business’s goals
  • Advocate for great user experiences when coordinating product development with business stakeholders to align priorities
  • Build or refine features to strengthen and grow our product portfolio while balancing against regulatory restrictions or business constraints
  • Lead the product development process from evangelizing the roadmap to creating detailed product requirements and managing prioritization 
  • Collaborate with engineering leadership, product designers, and a Scrum team of developers to execute the product vision
  • Oversee production issues and resolution by coordinating across other product teams and 3rd party vendors
  • Use quantitative and qualitative data to understand customer needs and drive decision making

REQUIREMENTS:

  • 5+ years of work experience, with 4+ years as a product manager
  • Experience developing and deploying features for a highly considered product or service that increase conversion across the full cycle of product development
  • A track record of increasing responsibility in product management
  • Highly effective at building collaborative relationships across an entire organization
  • Know when and how to craft qualitative and quantitative feature tests
  • Clear and concise written communication with proven ability to summarize large, complex, and conflicting data
  • Attention to detail with the tenacity to pursue complex problems
  • Authorized to work for any employer in the US without sponsorship now or in the future
  • Must be able to work full-time from our Manhattan office (once we are safe to re-open)

NICE TO HAVES:

  • Experience working with a B2B2C product where you consider multiple experiences and end-users
  • High-growth startup or consulting experience
  • Familiar with SQL or other analytics tools
  • Prior work experience in fintech, insurtech, healthtech, or any regulated industry

BENEFITS:

We have a stellar team of coworkers, a really cool office, and lots of fun activities. Oh yeah, and we pay competitive base salaries and we reward performance. Our salary structure is commensurate with experience. In addition, you will be eligible to participate in our comprehensive benefits program including medical insurance and 401(K).

An Insider's view of Haven Life

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The work life balance here is defined by the ability to not have to choose between work and life. I don't have to choose between being successful at work and being successful in the things that make me happy. It's fulfilling to be at a place where you can put in the work and also enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Nick

Developer

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with a team standup. Then it’s meetings, heads-down coding time, or collaborative work for the rest of the day. I eat at my desk when it’s busy, but I prefer to take a walk outside or get lunch with coworkers at one of the great food places nearby. I may meet with other teams to discuss projects or do a 1-on-1 with product or design.

Jasmine

Developer

How does the company support your career growth?

During my first week at Haven Life I was immediately entrusted with high-impact projects. I was given the opportunity to tackle difficult problems and engineer solutions. Career growth at Haven Life is learning-based, if you have a passion for learning, your managers and team will support your goals.

Natasha

Information Security

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

In 2019 we hosted the Innovation Challenge, a year-long contest to develop employee-generated innovations in the life insurance space. By design, the challenge brought together employees to brainstorm ideas, pitch product ideas, develop proof of concepts, and later build the winning products in a way that was self-driven yet internally encouraged.

Todd

CTO

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful person on a Haven Life team is open to tackling new challenges and sees them as opportunities rather than obstacles. We're growing quickly as a business, plus the conventional industry needs updating, so a Haven Life team member needs to be flexible and be okay with a little bit of ambiguity.
