About Kin:

At Kin, we’re looking for self-motivated thinkers ready to make a change for our customers. We value tackling challenges and breaking down walls – but being chill about it.

Kin Insurance is an insurtech startup that sells affordable, user-friendly homeowners insurance. Unlike many startups that gather users and figure out how to be profitable later, we are selling a product that homeowners need and depend on now. We’re innovating in an industry largely untouched by tech, so we are always thinking big. 

We believe autonomy is key to job satisfaction, which is why we say the person closest to the problem should solve it. It’s also why we offer unlimited vacation time: we trust in our team to manage their own projects and time. If you want the chance to develop your skills, work with some of the best minds in the industry, and see what you’re really capable of, come learn and grow with us.

So, what’s the role?

As we grow, Kin is focused on the continued expansion of business development channels and partnerships, as well as market optimization. We’re looking for a marketing professional with affiliate program experience to launch and manage Kin’s new affiliate marketing program. 

As our Affiliate Marketing Lead you’ll work side by side with our Director of Marketing, COO and members of the sales and marketing operations teams in designing, launching, and owning the strategy and execution of our affiliate program.

    • Researching and recommending new partnership opportunities
