Head of Insurance

Sigo is a mobile-first auto insurance provider focused on under-served and uninsured populations.  Low-income and immigrant customers are grouped into the same catch-all category, “non-standard” risk, as drunk drivers and those with several infractions.  Many of these customers are priced out of the traditional market or charged hundreds of dollars in extra fees by brick and mortar insurance agencies, which makes for a terrible experience.  Sigo is creating a new insurance product that provides fair pricing free of hidden fees with a direct to consumer approach that is tech-enabled, bilingual, and easy to use.

The Role

As Sigo’s Head of Insurance, you will lead Sigo’s transition to a managing general agent (MGA) and the creation of new insurance products that improve customer experience. You will own Sigo’s core insurance functions, including underwriting, insurance product strategy, pricing, reinsurance, claims, and risk management.

Sigo is a young company with a tremendous opportunity in front of it. The Head of Insurance will build a category-defining insurance offering from scratch. The ideal candidate combines deep insurance expertise with a frustration with the status quo and a willingness to shake things up. This role reports directly to the CEO.
