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 is a Virtual First Workplace with office locations in SF, Chicago, and NYC . This role can be based anywhere in the U.S as long as you can work our Vouch core collaboration hours (8:30 am-2:30 pm Pacific Time.)
We are looking for an Operations Associate to help drive the scaling of Vouch’s operations such that we can continue providing a stellar experience to our customers as they scale. This is a great role for you if you like to take the lead in breaking down and solving complex business problems, working with stakeholders across the business, and managing strategic projects from initiation through to implementation. You will be working with multiple internal teams across several workstreams, so time management, stakeholder management, and attention to detail are the critical skills to bring to this role. In addition to strategic project work, you will be the internal owner and subject matter expert across several key business operations tools, trusted to proactively identify issues, opportunities, and build out a roadmap of improvements to enhance processes across our end to end systems.
Reporting to the Director of Operations Solutions, this role will directly impact Vouch’s ability to effectively service our customers as we continue to provide innovative and impactful solutions. You will excel in this role if you get excited about effecting change, have a data-driven approach to solving complex problems, and thrive in a high-growth and fast-paced environment.
