Product Design Manager

New York, NY
Product & Design
Full-time
[We're firmly committed to building a team as diverse as our customers, and so candidates of all stripes—irrespective of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, age, sexual orientation—are encouraged to apply.]

OVERVIEW

We see ourselves as a design-driven company—one where design will always have a 'seat at the table.' As Product Design Manager, you will be expected to work as part of our executive team in bringing concept to reality in the form of a usable and beautiful product experience. This will involve owning the entire product design lifecycle (and most likely more): user- and stakeholder-research, requirements and data gathering, prototyping, polished visual designs, and ongoing testing to ensure maximum usability.

You're a builder by nature, have a burning desire to create something much larger than yourself and are willing to get your hands dirty and work tirelessly to do so.

ABOUT JETTY

Jetty is transforming insurance. In an industry that’s historically been riddled with jargon, high costs, and outdated technology, we believe that everyone deserves better, more affordable coverage that protects the things they love.

Jetty Renters Insurance, our core offering for consumers, can be customized for all kinds of scenarios—from nightmares like fire and theft to shattered phones, broken laptops, and even bedbugs. We also offer two additional innovative services: Jetty Deposit and Jetty Lease Guaranty. Together, they eliminate the need for renters to have a guarantor or pay a security deposit when signing a lease. This not only saves renters time and money, but it helps landlords drive occupancy, streamline operations, and manage risk.

You can find the Jetty team working in New York City, but our services are available to renters in 45 states (including D.C.). We plan on offering our services nationwide before the end of 2018. Get to know us better at www.jetty.com.
