Who We’re Looking For
“Innovative” and “disruptive” can be overused words. But at Bestow, it isn’t jargon, it’s an
everyday rally cry. We are rewriting the rules of the 400-year-old, $7 trillion life insurance
industry, serving communities who have been underserved in the past, and we believe the
future is a bright one.
So, if you’re excited by the idea of building an industry-defining brand from scratch, working at a
mission-driven company, and fundamentally shaking up an age-old industry, read on, friend.
Our ideal Marketing Manager is an ambitious marketer with 2-5 years of experience, a growth mindset, and a combination of analytical and creative skills. This person is a multi-talented marketer, with expertise in at least one channel/discipline and a working knowledge of the rest of marketing.
We’re looking for candidates with a background in hands-on marketing such as search or affiliate work but also someone who can take charge of agency requests, making sure asset creation schedules are on-time, and who doesn’t mind chipping in on copywriting or social channel management when needed.

  • You have marketed products in a regulated industry (like financial services)
  • You can get into our data warehouse yourself with SQL/Python/R & or other data tools
  • You’re entrepreneurial and you’ve built your own digital projects

An Insider's view of Bestow

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe can be hectic at times and mellow at others. I feel I am in the good company of others that are trying to create something significant; no one is ever too busy to allocate time in their day for your comments or concerns. I consider a good office atmosphere, one where healthy discourse is encouraged and Bestow Austin has it in spades.


Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Success is delighting people in unexpected ways. For example, we had someone apply but wasn’t eligible. Our team researched a company that might fit their specific case and helped them apply even though it wasn’t with us! This person was literally brought to tears because they were so grateful. We made a difference for someone. That’s success.


Director, Customer Experience

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Engineers are most engaged when they have the autonomy to make decisions on how things get built. We provide an environment where they can propose ideas, validate them and safely get to production with minimal friction. We don't micromanage decisions. We give people freedom to bring their good ideas to reality.


Vp, Engineering

What does career growth look like on your team?

At Bestow, you are not only free to define your own career path, but encouraged to step outside the boundaries and think outside the box on a daily basis. There are no limits placed on your work and you are entrusted with the responsibility and freedom to identify what problems need to be solved and how to solve them.
