Job Description

Who are we?

Ki is the biggest global insurance tech company you’ve never heard of, unless you’ve been looking to insure a satellite, wind farm or music festival recently.

Having written over $877m in gross written premium in 2023, we’ve achieved significant growth since our beginnings in 2021. Our investors were excited about the fact we were revolutionising the way a 333 year-old industry was working. There are hardly any industries left that are mainly paper based, but the specialty insurance market is one. Together with partners at Google and UCL we developed Ki and created a platform that helps insurance brokers place risk in a fast and frictionless way. We’re continuing to lead the charge on the digitisation of this market and we need more excellent minds to work with us to realise this goal and create more opportunities.

We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to own the roadmap for key capabilities that power our decision making – the algorithm. In this role you will help shape the direction of Ki’s algorithm capabilities and ensure that this is tied to tangible business outcomes by liaising closely with stakeholders and building strong relationships across the business. You’ll need to harness your own skills and those of the squad to creatively derive solutions to unique challenges, many of which are yet to be solved in insurance.

You will work closely with our data scientists, analysts, and algorithm engineers to build pioneering technology and capabilities that assess risk and manage our portfolios – both of which are critical to Ki’s long-term success

The key role accountabilities include:

•Effective Product Discovery: Employ your strong product skillset to identify the best problems to solve, ideate effective solutions, and chart a path to delivery in tandem with user research, engineering, and other stakeholders.
•Prioritise your squad’s workstack: With a bias for robust, data-driven reasoning, prioritise the right work at the right time – and ensure that the process has been collaborative and clear to others.
•Support Product Delivery: Encourage effective delivery by practicing and advocating for Product/Engineering best-practice inside and outside the squad. As a rule, we employ the Scrum framework at Ki.
•Articulate the commercial value of the roadmap: Leverage deep commercial understanding, both in terms of how Ki operates and the market opportunity we’re seeking to capitalise on, to communicate the value of the work we do.
•Manage stakeholders: Drive the discussion, with stakeholders across the business, of which algorithmic capabilities will most meaningfully move the business towards its goals. Ensure that this strategy dovetails with the broader algorithm, underwriting, and technology horizons.
•Work with the Product Management community: Engage openly with the broader Product organisation to identify opportunities for cross-benefit and mitigate against dependencies where possible.
•Communicate effectively: Proactively communicate the details of work with stakeholders in Portfolio Management and Underwriting, ensuring that algorithm approach and impact is well-understood.

Our culture:

Inclusion & Diversity is at the heart of our business at Ki. We recognise that diversity in age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, thought and social background bring richness to our working environment. No matter who you are, where you’re from, how you think, or who you love, we believe you should be you.

You’ll get a highly competitive remuneration and benefits package. This is kept under constant review to make sure it stays relevant. We understand the power of saying thank you and take time to acknowledge and reward extraordinary effort by teams or individuals.

Ki Values:

•Know Your Customer: Put yourself in their shoes. Understand and balance the different needs of our customers, acting with integrity and empathy to create something excellent
•Grow Together: Empower each other to succeed. Recognise the work of our teams, while celebrating individual success. Embrace diverse perspectives so we can develop and grow together.
•Be Courageous: Think big, push boundaries. Don’t be afraid to fail because that’s how we learn. Test, adapt, improve - always strive to be better.
