Help Us Shape the Future of the Insurance Industry

Veruna empowers insurance agencies to control the destiny of their business.  We are a venture backed start-up in high growth, scale-up mode built on the Salesforce platform.

Veruna is seeking individuals who are passionate on building a business and want to overcome new challenges. Candidates should be knowledgeable and capable, but always eager to learn more and to teach others. Overall, we strive to create a culture that is both relaxed and focused, and we stress empathy and collaboration with our customers, users, and each other.

Summary

You Are:

  • Smart
  • Creative
  • Persistent
  • Comfortable with collaborative product design
  • Someone who solves problems, not just delivers feature sets
  • Has a passion for empowering businesses to control the destiny of their business
  • Loves (or really, really likes) data and analytics

What You’ll Do:

  • Translate market opportunities and customer problems into clear solution strategy
  • Lead, strategize and develop Veruna’s 24-month product roadmap by
    • Establishing and prioritizing must-have product features,
    • Driving innovation while balancing scalability, and
    • Utilizing data and metrics to prioritize decisions
  • Develop and drive the product growth strategy by employing a keen understanding of customers and prospects, the competitive landscape, and unmet user needs through active engagement with our customers
  • Develop the product management team
  • Work closely with Engineering (primarily) but also Sales, Customer Success, and Marketing teams to measure demand and drive execution of our strategy
  • Articulate the product vision to key stakeholders to gain support and generate excitement
  • Own the end-to-end product lifecycle and roadmap
  • Oversee trade-offs and prioritization within an Agile development environment
  • Work closely with the CEO and advise the Board of Directors on product decisions and strategy
  • Work with Marketing to develop compelling value propositions, messaging, content, go-to-market strategies, and marketing plans to both current and future customers

  • Ability to learn and assimilate technical information quickly
  • Demonstrated management skills, flexibility, organization and self-motivation
  • Salesforce platform development experience
  • Some travel is required to the Hopkinton, MA office, occasional customer sites, and industry events (more upfront, then decreasing as the team solidifies)

What Will Make You Stand Out:

  • Insurance industry or accounting experience (but we have a lot of industry experts in-house to leverage!)
  • Software development lifecycle experience (more critical)
  • Undergraduate degree in STEM field (scientific method = lean and agile methodology)
  • MBA or equivalent business experience

Why You’ll Like Working Here:

  • Dynamic company that rewards high-performers
  • Collaborative team environment that values multiple perspectives and clear thinking
  • Real ownership of Product and ability to disrupt legacy competition
