The world has changed. Why hasn’t insurance?

Kin’s mission is to reimagine home insurance For Every New Normal. While other insurers struggle to handle a fast-changing world, Kin is built for the future and is prepared to meet its challenges head on while helping our customers do the same.

Kin is proud to be one of BuiltIn Chicago’s 2021 and 2022 Best Mid Sized Companies to work for, and Forbes 2021 Best Startup Employers in North America. Simply put, our people are what make us great, and we need forward-thinking, inspired game-changers like you to join us in our mission.

So, what’s the role?

Kin is taking on the home insurance market with accelerated growth to help customers in climate affected states get quality property insurance. We are a direct to customer business and our agents and support staff process complex information to ensure our customers find the best insurance policy for them. We are looking for a Senior Visual Designer to join our growing design team and own our support experience to help our agents seamlessly access information and guide our customers through the policy buying process.

In this role, you will be responsible for owning the visual identity of our brand and work across marketing and product teams to ensure a coherent representation of our brand across surfaces. You will be managing a small design team, partner with design system and research teams and be embedded within the marketing org to conceptualize and art direct our visual brand and marketing campaigns.

A day in the life could include:

  • Art direct and design conceptual brand expressions across all mediums for campaigns that drive awareness, acquisition, and retention results
  • Communicate complicated topics in clear, concise visuals to a non technical audience
  • Play an active role in communicating strategic decisions around the future direction of our visual brand and how it is represented
  • Create original, breakthrough work
  • Manage and mentor 1-2 designers within the visual design team
  • Lead a partnership with Marketing and Brand directors, designers, researchers and product managers

I’ve got the skills… but do I have the necessary ones?

  • Experience leading, developing, and deploying visual brands that drive differentiation - ultimately building customer loyalty and preference - working closely with marketing, product, design systems and internal brand.
  • Experience art directing, designing and concepting big, conceptual brand expressions across all mediums for campaigns that drive awareness, acquisition, and retention results.
  • Experience creating original breakthrough ideas as well as translating complex strategic approaches into accessible creative concepts that are focused on addressing the brand/ marketing needs of the company.
  • Experience showcasing your end-to-end design process across multiple projects, that include interaction and visual design artifacts, multiple iterations, high-fidelity prototypes, and consideration of the impact and scale of work

Other must haves:

  • Bachelor's degree in design, graphic design, art or equivalent experience
  • 6+ years of experience at agency/ in-house concepting and art directing ideas for brand and product marketing
  • Demonstrated creative excellence with proven global and digital experience
  • Experience working on mobile and digital social campaigns
  • Professional communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Experience working in a fast-paced, data-driven environment

Oh, and don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

  • 401K with company match

About Kin

In an industry that hasn't budged in more than 100 years, our technology transforms the user experience, cuts inefficiencies that waste billions of consumer dollars, and customizes coverage homeowners want.

Our approach to the industry makes us unique, and the people at Kin help us excel. We’re a team of problem solvers, collaborators, builders, and dreamers who are passionate about creating positive change in the lives of our customers and in our industry. Kin is more than just our name – it’s how we treat each other. That’s one of the many reasons we’ve been recognized as a great place to work by Built In, Forbes, and Fast Company.
