Country Launcher (Portugal)

We want to help everyone in Europe get insurance faster, easier, and digitally. If you’re ready to take on the challenge of launching the Feather brand in Portugal, we’re looking for a country launcher to lead the way.

We have done this before in Germany, the most competitive insurance market in the world. With our help, you'll be doing it in Portugal.

We’ll do all we can to make sure you have the support you need which makes this an incredible opportunity for personal growth.

Why apply to Feather?

We’ll give you the opportunity to prove your entrepreneurial talent in a fast-growing company with a ridiculously talented tech team that can do almost anything!

  • Ownership, personal growth & coaching. The chance to launch a product into the Portuguese market with full responsibility. You'll be able to test new things every day and grow your skills along the way.
  • Small team, flat hierarchy, mission-driven. The usual buzzwords here, except we actually mean them. We’re small, lean, and we love what we’re doing. And we expect our new country launcher to embody these ideals as well when hiring the new team.
  • Creating a product people need. You’ll be building products that people need, and are grateful for. Our excellent Trustpilot and Google reviews speak for themselves. We’ve built a product around people, and they love it!
  • A very flexible remote work policy. You'll only be requested to travel to Berlin occasionally for our quarterly company retreats.
  • Creative and professional freedom. You’ll have the unique opportunity to shape a team and a product with a large degree of freedom according to your vision.

Your profile

While we are looking for some specific experience, if you don't have everything and are a bit intimidated... apply anyway! We promise that it'll be a fun interview process.

  • Execution: You have proven your ability to create a small and successful team (not necessarily leading the team, but being an integral part of making things happen, and making the key decisions that lead the team to be successful)
  • Customer focus: We’re looking for someone with the ability to empathize with our customers (people moving to Portugal from other EU countries or non-EU countries)
  • Communication: You have excellent communication and time management skills (both oral and written communication)
  • Technical knowledge: You are excited about technical subjects and are willing to learn what you may not already know (you'll be responsible for quickly judging the technical feasibility of solutions)
  • Prioritization: You love solving problems and know how to prioritize
  • Language: You are fluent in English and Portuguese (we use English to communicate with the team and customers, and Portuguese to communicate with partners)
  • No insurance needed: Insurance domain knowledge is not necessary as we like to bring in fresh perspectives (you still, however, have to be interested in really diving into the world of insurance because it's not possible to build something great without getting into the details)

Nice to have:

  • Founding experience
  • Technical background (development or data-related)
  • VC or consulting experience at a top tier firm
  • Work experience at a fast-growing company
  • Any proof that you can get things done effectively (hobby, side project, etc.)

What will you be doing?

We’re looking for a motivated person to launch Feather in Portugal. We’ve done this before, so we’re already prepared to offer you the backing you need to increase your chances of success.

Your first 3-6 months will look like this:

  • Launch 3-5 insurance products as an intermediary (with the help of our insurance team)
  • Set up landing pages and interview potential customers (with the help of our product team)
  • Gain first real customers
  • Run all operations necessary to deliver a basic customer experience
  • Acquire first distribution partnerships
  • ...and then build the team to scale

After your first successful launch, you can choose whether to grow into a country GM role or launch another country. You will also have a budget of 50k for the first 6 months.

What will the interview process look like?

  • Initial phone call - We'll have a chat over Google Meet and get to know each other. Please explain why you're excited to launch Feather in the Portuguese market.
  • Take-home task prep - We’ll go through the country launch process (high level) and give you a product to "launch" with us. We'll set you up with all the context and tools necessary to "launch a product in a day".
  • Reviewing the take-home task - We’ll walk through your product launch and find out how you get things done.
  • Chat with the founders - You'll be speaking to both of our founders.

Does this sound like a good fit for you? Apply now!

  • At Feather, we are huge advocates for diversity and inclusion. From LGBTQ+ events to open discussions about eliminating bias, we highly encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply.
  • We also encourage people without degrees to apply: we believe that what you’ve worked on and achieved is way more important than on-paper qualifications.
