Insurance State Product Manager

Branch insurance brings high quality home and car insurance to its members, delightfully, instantly and efficiently. Branch is on a mission to reduce the cost of insurance, enabling more to be insured doing so through distribution, product, and business model innovation using the power of community! Branch was founded on a simple belief: insurance has lost its way.

What was supposed to be a simple way for neighbors to band together to protect each other from financial disaster has turned into a battle of mega-corps, imposing high costs, complicated policies, and pain-in-the-neck claims processes.

We’re not here to reimagine insurance. We’re here to restore insurance back to its original intent—a force for communal good.

As we like to say around here: we’re getting back to getting each other’s back.
