Kin is on a mission to change home insurance from what it is to what it should be. Whether we’re leveraging data to create customizable coverage or providing claims service that goes above and beyond expectations, our members are at the heart of everything we do. In the face of ever-growing climate risk, they deserve an insurance company that cares about them. We aim to stick with our members through thick and thin.

Use efficient technology that lets homeowners buy directly from us to keep costs down: This is the essence of Kin. Our approach has fostered amazing growth, attracted marquee investors, and earned us accolades, including being named to:

  • Built In Chicago's Best Places to Work, Midsize Companies (2021-2024).

  • Forbes' America's Best Startup Employers (2021- 2023).

  • Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies.

  • Forbes’ Fintech 50.

Simply put, our people are what make us great – we need forward-thinking, inspired game-changers like you to join us in our mission.

So, what’s the role?

Kin Insurance continues to grow; as we expand into territories we haven’t been to before, we are looking for an experienced Licensed Sales Manager to help continue to build and lead our sales teams. Our Sales Managers play a key role in the growth and success of Kin.

As a Sales Manager, you will help to hire, develop, and manage our front-line Sales Agents through strategic mentoring to guide them toward achieving sales targets and goals. Because we are a cross-functional organization, you will partner with other departments to ensure your team has the tools they need to be successful. As we change the way our customers purchase insurance and interact with their agents, we value your point of view and expertise on areas of improvement that we can bring to our teams.

  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams to drive product development and enhancements

  • Developing and implementing new sales initiatives, strategies, and programs to help drive production

  • Assisting in recruiting, onboarding, and training of new Sales Agents
