We are looking for a Project Manager who will oversee all project aspects, keeping projects running on track and within scope from start to finish. On a daily basis, you will work with our engineering and product teams to plan and arrange work as well as ensure the cross-functional teams are aligned on progress, status, and scope.

You are excited to be instrumental in Sure’s expansion across the insurance industry.

What you'll do:

  • You'll coordinate, plan, and complete projects on time and within scope.
  • You'll align project goals and outcomes among diverse, cross-functional project stakeholders, building them to consensus and achieving interim milestones and project goals.
  • You'll create and iterate project schedule based on statement-of-work (SOW), client expectations, and Sure's product and engineering team's availability.

What you bring:

  • 3+ years experience communicating effectively with internal and external stakeholders.
  • As a natural collaborator, you bring people together.
  • Ability to zoom out and notice big picture trends just as easily as you are able to zoom in and execute on details.
  • Strong organizational skills with a precise attention to detail.
  • Can read between the lines and navigate opaque situations.
  • A proactive mindset; you are a self-starter who takes initiative and dives right in!
  • When faced with problems, you lead with solutions.

  • Encourage, support, and guide continuous improvement of the team, its products, and processes.
  • A history of managing enterprise-level projects at a client-facing or SaaS organization.
  • Experience implementing software in an agile environment.

What we do for you:

  • Unlimited PTO… no really, we want you to take it!
  • Mental Health Breaks - company provided meditation app and a weekly wellness hour

An Insider's view of Sure

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a really kudos-giving culture (++'s, shoutouts, etc.). Each engineer's strong suits are discovered, and the work is arranged around what we know well or are excited to learn. For me, the biggest reward is getting to do work that I love to do, which happens to be very math-centered. We get to become subject matter experts in areas we enjoy.

Lena

Backend Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

The best part of being a marketer is that no two days are exactly alike. In fact, it changes by minute as I pivot from content to design to PR. However, one thing remains consistent from day-to-day — the motivation I get from the Sure team to continuously strive for greatness. Everyday I’m surrounded by amazing people that produce incredible work.

Brenna

Head of Marketing

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has exploded since being here at Sure. Everyday I am given in the opportunity to work on ground breaking products. Whether it’s refactoring an existing paradigm or innovating on a new idea, I’m given the tools and team members to go above and beyond what I knew was possible. For this, my growth is limitless.

John

Product Designer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The most creative ideas are fostered in environments where team members have a strong sense of ownership over their projects, feel safe enough to be vulnerable, and challenging the status quo is encouraged and rewarded. It’s my job to make sure that these elements are a part of everyday life at Sure.

Dan

Chief Product Officer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our Partnerships Team is constantly coming up with innovations that not only focus on our clients' needs, but the big picture of Sure. These ideas influence product decisions, which our leadership team is quick to implement, ultimately helping us continue to grow smoothly. We are able to support business progression through collaborative teamwork.
