Full time

Founded in 2017 by our CEO, James, and co-founder, Callum, we’re an award-winning technology startup with a mission to offer people a fairer kind of car insurance. With the UK’s first real-time pay-by-mile car insurance policy, we’re bringing the same level of on-demand convenience to car ownership that people now expect from taxis and take-away food.

We’re now looking for a Product Manager to join our newly formed Policy team. You will be part of a small team focused on improving the products and platforms we use to manage the full policy lifecycle for our members, including our internal administration tool used by our Customer Experience team to serve our members.

As our pay-by-mile policy was the first of its kind, our policy has proven popular with UK motorists, who voted us Best Car Insurance Provider and Best Insurance App for two years running at the Insurance Choice Awards. Our customer-first approach has also ensured we have a Trustpilot rating of ‘Excellent’. We’ve been covered by the BBCThe Telegraph and TechCrunch, while our pay-by-mile policy has also been featured on TV’s Sky News and The Gadget Show.

The role

Reporting to our Head of Product, you’ll have the opportunity to respond to exciting business demands with solutions that make us more efficient and increase revenue, while empowering our Customer Experience team to serve our members with reliable policy information.

As the founding Product Manager in our newly formed Policy team, you’ll have the opportunity to shape team norms, mission, vision and ways of working in partnership with your talented and supportive cross-functional team. 

By Miles employees are an engaged and passionate bunch, so there will never be a shortage of ideas internally about what the Policy team should be working on. You will be influential in identifying and shaping the most impactful projects that can be delivered efficiently and you’ll see the impact of your product solutions right away.

We’re looking for someone who will be able to hit the ground running, and enjoy working with different teams across our business to solve problems for our members and continuously make our service better.
