A Bit About Newfront

From the Mayflower to the moon landing, every venture relies on insurance. The $1 trillion insurance industry is fundamental to our economy and society, but remains stuck in the stone age. Incumbents rely on antiquated pen-and-paper process and there's a huge opportunity to transform it through technology. At Newfront, we're building software to supercharge insurance brokers and help them deliver a delightful experience to clients.

While we’re a technology-driven company, we believe that people and trusted relationships matter. Newfront believes in empowering people rather than "disrupting" them. Our singular mission is to create the future of work for this massive industry.

We believe breakout growth creates breakout opportunities and diversity drives innovation.

We are looking for a Chief of Staff with exceptional research and planning, writing, synthesis, and project leadership skills to partner with our CEO and exec team in driving strategic outcomes and critical business decision-making processes, executing successful company communications, leading complex special projects, and supporting the integration of our merger. This person will report directly to our CEO, Spike Lipkin, and gain incredible context around how to lead a rapidly scaling company.

Ensure that attendees are well-prepared for CEO meetings to make the most effective use of time. Generally, connect the dots across the organization to help the CEO better prioritize his efforts and time.
  • Board Prep - Lead quarterly board deck preparation alongside Finance and BizOps staff.
  • Partner to CEO - Work closely with CEO, serving as a thought partner and sounding board in making impactful decisions. Lead high-priority, cross-functional special projects.
