ABOUT BESTOW


Bestow is a leader in the modern life insurance space. As both a direct-to-consumer destination and a leading enterprise SaaS provider, Bestow is on a mission to increase financial stability for everyone. We’re a series-C start-up with a remote/hybrid workforce offering work-life balance and equity to all employees.

Bestow participates in the E-Verify Program.


ABOUT THE TEAM


The Product Design team is focused on expanding the capabilities of our platform that will enable our quickly growing Enterprise offering to meet a large market opportunity. We serve the needs of our Enterprise partners as we help them to make their life insurance products more accessible to their customers. We work closely with cross-functional teams both within Bestow and externally at Enterprise customers to understand the needs of the industry and how our platform needs to evolve.
