Manager/Senior Manager - CEO's Office - Special Projects (4-8 yrs)

Mumbai Job Code: 1101766

Responsible for conceptualizing new ideas through consumer research and market intelligence, and also testing these ideas through an iterative pilot-feedback-repeat loop. We are (thankfully) empowered individuals who like to think of ourselves as "idea owners", with the ability to think differently, challenge the status quo and with a bias for action.

If pre-empting customer needs (the joy of giving customers something that they don't know they need yet), conceptualizing, experimenting and finally executing tech- driven futuristic ideas (no, we aren't creating tech to take over the world; more like tech that help customers overcome the daunting challenge that is life insurance today) and getting your hands dirty with 'real world' work (analysing data to get insights, speaking to customers yourself to validate those insights, building new products / solutions from scratch etc.) sound exciting to you, then please reach out to us. This role will give you a high degree of freedom and exposure along with a fair amount of accountability.
