About Vouch:

Insurance... sounds slow, old-fashioned, and unexciting. Exactly. Insurance is broken, and it's failing fast-moving, innovative startups.

Vouch is a new, technology-first insurance company backed with $160M in funding from world-class investors. Like Stripe for payments or Brex for credit cards, Vouch is creating the go-to business insurance for high-growth companies.

We're doing this by making insurance fast, responsive, and focused on our customers -high growth and innovative companies. Instead of printed PDF applications and week-long waits, Vouch is building new technology to solve real problems, writing policies that actually cover relevant startup scenarios, and designing simple experiences in an otherwise frustrating industry.

 

What does a work environment look like at Vouch?

Vouch is a Virtual First Workplace with office locations in SF, Chicago, and NYC. This role can be based anywhere in the U.S. as long as you can work our Vouch core collaboration hours (8:30 am-2:30 pm Pacific Time.) Although we’re open to remote, we have a slight preference for having our IT Manager based in the Chicago area.

 

Role Responsibilities: 

As the IT Manager, you’ll play a key role in helping to define the IT strategy of Vouch as we continue to grow the team. As we scale, you will play a key role in building new processes and continuously finding new ways to improve our IT infrastructure, key systems, and our IT Support Service organization.

  • Operate the IT program within the agreed budget, communicate and advise on potential changes needed to the IT budget, and provide operational support for IT-related purchases.
  • Engage Vouch employees to gather requirements and teach best practices for using internal software services securely and efficiently

 

About you:

  • Minimum of 5 years of experience working in IT 
  • Expertise in administering Google Workspace (aka G Suite)

Nice to have:

  • Flexible vacation time (Unlimited PTO)
  • Wellness allowance ($80/month)
  • Technology allowance ($100/month)
