Haven Life is an insurtech innovator, backed and wholly owned by MassMutual that creatively uses technology to advance the life insurance industry and better serve the modern customer.

We combine the culture of a startup with the stability and backing of a Fortune 500 company to create an environment that's truly unique.

If you're creative, professional and kind, we'd love to hear from you.


This person will help us build the industry’s best Sales team by attracting the right talent and supporting them with the culture and operating model needed for world-class outcomes:

They partner with our Client Success team to continue to engage the client in post-sales phases and win add-on revenue mandates

  • Technology pioneers: Our AEs work closely with our SEs in aligning our clients’ business strategies to our solutions and services.

  • Efficient operators: Our Sales Operations team members support the sales process efficiently and create repeatable assets and processes (e.g., RFP response collateral) so our AEs can self-service simpler situations
