  • Previous insurance experience is required
  • Previous experience managing a modern contact center team to successful outcomes is required, with an excellent understanding of contact center strategies and metrics
  • You have a passion for improving things through the use of technology and automation
  • Experience utilizing contact center tools like HubSpot, Zendesk, or ServiceNow
  • A genuine enjoyment of technology and a high level of proficiency with business software (e.g. Excel, Word, etc.)
  • Passion for building customer relationships
  • Excellent communication skills. You need to be a very competent writer with the ability to explain complex topics in easy-to-understand and concise language.
