Coalition is the leading provider of cyber insurance and security, combining comprehensive insurance and proactive cybersecurity tools to help organizations be resilient to cyber attacks. Cyber losses cost the global economy upwards of $1.5 trillion each year, and yet the majority of businesses are under-insured and under-prepared to manage and mitigate the risks of an increasingly digital world. Coalition is addressing this gap by providing no-cost cybersecurity tools to prevent losses, security and incident response services to contain them, and comprehensive insurance to help organizations recover from failures and breaches. We serve over 42,000 customers, ranging from small and midsize businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

Founded in 2017, Coalition has raised $300M from leading global technology investors, including Index Ventures, General Atlantic, Ribbit Capital, Vy Capital, Hillhouse Capital, and Valor Equity Partners, among others. Headquartered in San Francisco, Coalition’s team is global with employees based across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Portugal.

About the role

As a Principal Product Manager at Coalition, you will own one of the company’s strategic product areas and have material impact on business outcomes. You’ll identify key problems we tackle, get feedback from key stakeholders, prioritize features to plan a roadmap, and work across the company to build innovative solutions. A great product manager thinks creatively, empathizes with their customers, and deeply understands the domain. You’ll be balancing different perspectives, making thoughtful decisions on trade-offs, and helping us build the right products for the right user at the right time.

What’s unique about this role? You will be joining a multi-disciplinary team focused on bringing Coalition into new markets, since the problem of cyber risk is global. You will identify the opportunities and specific quirks (commercial and regulatory) of each market, and you’re excited about adapting a proven product to be successful in a new locale (maybe you’ve done it before). Additionally, you’re ready to innovate on improving the core services and adding new capabilities which may be used elsewhere. You will be our first Product Manager in Europe and a member of the UK founding team.

Our insurance platform serves as the foundation for underwriting, modeling, pricing, quote and policy issuance, billing, and the renewal process for our growing book of business. The platform requires flexibility for new products, geographies, and channels, all while operating smoothly in a regulated environment with multiple customers: policyholders, brokers, and different internal roles. We need you to lead projects that expand our capabilities for all customers.

We expect a balance of constant incremental improvement with appetite for larger opportunities. When you find foundational things that need attention, you’re willing to fix the root issue and invest in projects that benefit the company long term. You’ll manage your roadmap in a clear, consistent manner, and help everyone understand what success looks like. We’re growing quickly, so there is considerable opportunity to scale responsibility with the company’s success.
