About the role

About Vouch:

Insurance... sounds slow, old-fashioned, and unexciting. Exactly. Insurance is broken, and it's failing fast-moving, innovative startups.

Vouch is a new, technology-first insurance company backed with $160M in funding from world-class investors. Like Stripe for payments or Brex for credit cards, Vouch is creating the go-to business insurance for high-growth companies.

We're doing this by making insurance fast, responsive, and focused on our customers -high growth and innovative companies. Instead of printed PDF applications and week-long waits, Vouch is building new technology to solve real problems, writing policies that actually cover relevant startup scenarios, and designing simple experiences in an otherwise frustrating industry.

What does a work environment look like at Vouch?

Vouch has a 3-HQ model: Office-Based, Office-Linked, and Remote-First. This role is Office Based, which means that team members are expected to live near one of our main offices (SF or Chicago) and be in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays with 1 day of flexibility. However, due to Covid, we are promoting flexibility with this structure and currently encourage folks to stay home if they feel more comfortable.

Job Duties:

  • Establish highly trusted and supportive relationships with our customers and Account Management team
  • Execute mid-term changes including endorsements, coverage amendments and other policy updates
  • Execute certificates of insurance and associated endorsements
  • Deliver consistent and timely responses to policy servicing requests and issues
  • Drive additional value by identifying areas to improve processes and procedures focused on delivering a great customer experience and increasing operational efficiency

About you:

  • 2+ years’ experience in a fast-paced and customer service-oriented work environment
  • 1+ year of experience in an insurance related service-orientated role
  • A natural customer empathy
  • Strong problem-solving skills
  • Strong communication and organizational skills
  • Ability to track, prioritize and drive high volumes of policy servicing requests
  • Ability to manage multiple tasks of varying natures at one time
  • Ability to deal well with ambiguity and maintain composure in complex situations
  • Dependable, positive and detail-oriented with excellent follow-through skills

Nice to have:

  • Bachelor's Degree (in Business, Insurance & Risk Management or a related field a plus)
  • Experience in Property/Casualty Insurance
  • Exposure to and passion for early-stage startups and/or high growth environments

Vouch provides a number of benefits to help you bring your best self to work:

  • Competitive compensation and equity packages
  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Parental leave
  • Flexible vacation time (Unlimited PTO)
  • Wellness allowance ($80/month)
  • Technology allowance ($100/month)
  • Monthly Doordash credits ($80/month)

Vouch believes in putting our people first, and building a diverse team is at the front of everything that we do. We welcome people from different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, and ranges of abilities. We are an equal opportunity employer and celebrate the diversity of our growing team

Why you should join Vouch

Vouch is building the future of commercial insurance: instead of having to go through stodgy brokers, and long paper-based applications, Vouch will make it easy for any Seed or Series-A stage company to get all of the business insurance (property, liability of various sorts) they need, and will ensure that this coverage scales as a company does.
