Who is Clearcover?
Clearcover is the smarter car insurance company. We use powerful technology to offer everyday drivers better coverage for less money. We’re proud to be one of the fastest growing startups in Chicago, and we’re currently looking to add a few more extraordinary people to our team.

What is a Customer Experience Content Manager at Clearcover?
You’re a veteran Technical Writer who has lots of experience editing and writing end-user technical documentation for the web. You understand comma usage like the back of your hand and can jump right into any project using an established Style Guide. You’ve mastered best practices for localization and spent some time in the trenches creating graphics and video tutorials. Nothing irks you more than a comma splice, and few things bring you as much joy as a finished piece of beautifully-written, easy-to-follow documentation.

Our Customer Experience (CX) department is among the best in the business, and we're looking to add an expert Content Manager to it. You will work cross-functionally with Clearcover Customer Advocacy, Clearcover Sales, Agent Advocacy, Underwriting, and Product Management to research and document the use of Clearcover and how to serve Clearcover customers. Your deliverables will include Help Center articles, educational snippets for support conversations, and internal Knowledge Base content. 

You’ll spend much of your time editing and mentoring other people in the CX department to write according to the Clearcover style, enabling us to continue to scale quickly and efficiently and maintain exceptional customer experience standards.

  • Create screenshots, illustrations, and videos for use in documentation where needed

  • Accurately estimate and plan documentation tasks

What do you need?

  • Excellent grammar and written communication skills

  • 3+ years of experience of writing and editing end user documentation

  • Experience mentoring and leading other writers

What's in it for you?

An Insider's view of Clearcover

What's something quirky about your company?

It’s surprising how much we all grow to love discussing insurance. Everyone is genuinely interested in how the industry works and sharing knowledge. I think we feel we owe it to our customers to understand how insurance works, so they don’t have to. We’ve likely all thought at one point, “Wow, I never thought I’d care about insurance this much.”


Senior Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Whether I'm working with Product to promote a feature launch or partnering with our Customer Advocate team to communicate updates to customers, I get to collaborate across teams, leverage my skills & improve my expertise every day. Clearcover nurtures a collaborative environment and encourages thinking outside the box to deliver better experiences.
