Comments to Supplier
Product Designer on exploration side; contingent worker will work with various product owners (4) and will need to be able to jump between the work between the various owners; insurance industry experience not necessary, however, e-commerce spin would be great since the contingent will be working with application selling products via websites.
The group has an informal structure and is looking for someone that can jump in and help where ever needed.
