In short: our solution enables motor insurance companies to provide customers with a car damage with an unparalleled customer journey and realize a significant cost reduction at the same time. To realize this, we use a combination of a topnotch Saas platform and creative thinking. After a successful start in the Netherlands, Openclaims will expand to new countries this year. As a Marketing Analyst you are of vital importance to provide the Commercial Domain of Openclaims with the right insights to unlock these new foreign markets. This position is open for both fulltime and parttime (e.g. students) candidates.
Openclaims is an award winning company of (a.o.) the Dutch and European Fintech Awards. From our HQ in Amsterdam we work with a fast growing team (20+ people) on our next steps: growth and internationalization.
About Openclaims: repair management in motor insurance
Openclaims operates in the repair management domain of car damages. This is an interesting market: for consumers, the repair process is far from customer friendly (think: reporting a damage takes a lot of paper work, planning an appointment at the body shop is not straightforward), insurance companies face increasing costs (both in repair costs and the organizational costs e.g. when a customer calls the insurance company because something is unclear). Also the body shops are under pressure because the tariffs for which they repair are being lowered by the insurance companies as a means to reduce costs. This creates an unhealthy insurance ecosystem which Openclaims wants to change. In stead of maximizing the profits for one party, we choose to create a win win win situation: ease and speed for consumers, cost reduction for insurers and more revenue for the body shops. This allows us really innovate in a sustainable way.
Working within the Commercial Domain
For the Commercial Domain within Openclaims (Marketing, Business Development, Sales and Customer Success) it is vital to really understand the needs of our target groups and to translate this to e.g. content, website, sales process, strategic partnerships. In a B2B environment, the line between marketing and sales is very thin meaning we take on mant projects jointly. Currently we are among other things working on our Thought Leadership: creating blogs and articles in which we share our vision and knowledge with (potential) clients. In addition we are working on our expansion in new countries. In everything we do we constantly shift between strategy and execution: a good idea needs to go live yesterday, yet as a young company in a traditional market it is important that we position Openclaims as a solid and trustworthy enterprise.
“There are many countries to choose from in our international expansion. Every country poses different advantages, potential and challenges. E.g.think about how the potential of damages is distributed among insurance companies or how body shop networks are structured. As an Analyst in the Commercial Team you play a vital role in helping the team making strategic decisions". Valborg Korthals Altes, Head of Marketing
The position: Graduate Marketing Analyst
As a Marketing Analyst you are responsible to create full insight in a potential foreign market. Together with Marketing and Business Development you determine which elements of a certain market need to be analyzed. Finding your way to relevant reports, digging in documents, connecting the dots: you are able to create qualitative and quantitative insights. It's not about creating a fancy report or working your way through large data sets, but all about being able to really understand how a market functions from a business point of view. Working as a Marketing Analyst provides you with the chance to quickly develop your skills in the practical setting of a fast growing scale up. You will soon be the business expert on one or more countries Openclaims is expanding to, enabling you to also grow to other positions.
It is not important what you have studied or in which education you are currently enrolled. A bright mind, a proven record of analytical skills (both qualitative and quantitative) and the eagerness to really dive into a (couple of) new insurance market(s) are far more important. Also you need to be able to demonstrate a good level of business sense, meaning that you are not only about data but more about putting it into perspective of the market you are researching. Working in a growing scale-up has to appeal to you: we operate in a very flat hierarchy, your impact is very visible and the pace is high. For most projects there is no ready-made playbook. You will find that you are in the right place at Openclaims when you enjoy to really take initiative and when you know how to put your ideas to action.
“For Openclaims I am looking for people to join our team who are really able to realize our next growth steps. There is so much going on and every day is different: an ideal environment for when you want to grow fast in your skills and as a person and when the dynamic vibe of a scale up energizes you." Stephan Stergiou, COO Openclaims
Because we are growing fast we spend much time on structure and coaching. This means we set our company targets for each six months and translate these to concrete objectives for every team. This is also the basis for every individual to weekly define your own goals and priorities and to evaluate these with your team lead. On a monthly basis we have so called Pulse Meetings where we share our experiences and make sure everyone stays on the same page.
