What We Are Looking For
Decent is looking for an inquisitive Senior Product Manager to strengthen our product offering, and help bring affordable healthcare to all.
Who We Are
Decent envisions a world where everyone has the freedom to do the work they want without sacrificing access to affordable and comprehensive healthcare. We believe in our mission to offer more affordable health insurance options for start-up to midsize businesses by aligning incentives to improve health, reduce costs, and put members at the center of their care.
We help small businesses (2-100 employees) band together in a large group PEO and do their payroll, so we can save them 35% on their health insurance. We’re servicing a huge market need for affordable and satisfying health insurance (79 NPS vs. industry average of 19), and all of our plans include unlimited primary care via the direct primary care (DPC) model. We sell both direct and through brokers and have partnered with national broker distributors like BenefitMall and OneDigital (25K brokers) to offer the world’s first integrated health plan + PEO. We set ambitious goals around team NPS and believe building and maintaining a strong positive culture is the key force multiplier in everything we do.
