    How a variety of experience inspires data innovation | Spring Venture Group

    By Ashleigh Bynum When many people think of technology departments, they picture fairly traditional limitations in terms of backgrounds: coding, information technology, and development. But, our team at SVG understands this is no longer the reality in the tech industry. I've noticed companies are recognizing that technical skills can be taught, unlike soft-skills such as problem-solving and creative thinking.

Spring Venture Group – Why Work With Us?


Spring Venture Group is an inside sales and marketing company with product offerings in the areas of Health and Life Insurance. What makes us a unique organization is our emphasis on providing high quality marketing and leads to our sales advisors so that they can focus all of their efforts on being productive on the phone.

We create a customer experience that meets our clients needs while also saving them the most money possible. We believe that comparison shopping for the best rate is the strongest value proposition, and results in our agents having everything they need to close the sale and bring considerable savings to our customers.

United Medicare Advisors is an independent insurance agency offering comparison shopping options to seniors seeking supplemental coverage to their Medicare parts A and B. We represent only top-rated insurance carriers like Mutual of Omaha, Aetna, Gerber Life and Humana.

Medicare can seem like a confusing topic to digest on your own. Our expert, licensed agents take the time to breakdown the basics of Medicare and help a client select the plan that best meets their needs. From there we utilize our industry leading technology to offer a client the plan they have selected at the very best price.

United Medicare Advisors is a d/b/a of Spring Insurance Solutions, with offices at 120 W 12th Street, Suite 1700, Kansas City, MO 64105.





We know enrolling in Medicare can be a confusing, frustrating, and painstaking process—but it doesn't have to be. SmartMatch Insurance Solutions is an ally for your Medicare needs.

SmartMatch Insurance Solutions considers multiple coverage options to find a Medicare plan for your individual healthcare needs. We're a team of licensed sales agents who ask you personalized questions to determine the level of coverage you may need—and coverage you don't.

Our sales agents are unbiased—which means the only option that works for us is the option that works for you. We compare plans, policies, carriers, networks, and rates to help you understand the combination of coverage to help you live your healthiest life.

All employees are eligible for full benefits at 90 days of employment with Spring Venture Group. 

Benefits Include:

  • $$$
    • We pay you what you’re worth. We offer competitive salaries with exciting bonus and commission plans that put you comfortably and confidently in the driver’s seat.
  • Work/Life Balance
    • Work shouldn’t take over your life. We offer ample paid time off, flexible schedule options, and paid leave so you can take care of business whenever and wherever you are.
  • Healthcare + Retirement
    • We don’t skimp on the necessities. Our health, dental and vision, and retirement options have you covered.
  • Location, Location, Location
    • Is it weird that we love to be at work? Our brand new downtown headquarters boasts awesome views of KC, standing desks, discount programs, and our very own on-site gym.

    • Opportunity awaits at SVG. We are constantly looking for high achievers who want to do and be more. Our hands-on, comprehensive onboarding, leadership development, and training gets you in the game faster, with more confidence.
  • Speak Your Mind
    • Regular open forums with our leadership team lets your voice be heard. When it comes to your needs, no one knows better than you.



SVG Social

SVG Social develops events to “support the growth of unity between SVG employees through engaging activities beyond the confines of the office.” 

Company events run the gamut of categories including philanthropy, physical activity, mental stimulation, and pure, unadulterated party. Between attendance at Royals, Chiefs and Sporting KC games, Spring Venture Group employees can be seen restoring a home with Habitat for Humanity or running a local 5K race. We strive to create an unparalleled level of employee satisfaction.


Agent Advisory Board

Our foundation for success and efficiency is constructed with communication as a cornerstone. The Agent Advisory Board is SVG’s solution for circulating frequent feedback throughout the organization.

Representatives of each sales team bring questions and suggestions to the table for discussion with top leadership. Not only does this form a streamlined communication channel, it also permits voices from different levels of seniority to be heard in a setting that fosters creative problem solving and innovation.


Sales at SVG

If you think you know sales….you don’t know sales at SVG. No matter your background—our sales team is a great place to take your career to the next level. Our sales roles are specialized in bringing in new business only—that means no sourcing your own leads or maintaining them after the sale (we have other teams who take care of that).

We take a win-win, consultative approach to help our customers make better decisions about their health insurance. We ask our customers questions to determine exactly what they need—and what they don’t—based on their unique needs and budget.



Full-Time Sales 

No previous sales experience? No problem. Our proven paid training program is absolutely best in class. Our three-month development program is set up to support you and your individual strengths right from the start—no matter your background—so you can hit the ground running, and with confidence.

We put the tools and resources in your hands to succeed every step of the way, with ongoing training and coaching sessions to keep your skills sharp as you grow.

We pay pretty well, too. Our advisors make an average of $68k in their first year. And once you’re in, there are plenty of avenues for growth. From the support team to sales coach, to manager or director—we love promoting our own.

Seasonal positions

Are you a gig worker? Entrepreneur? Hustler?

Do you need some cash for your next big idea?

Try our seasonal sales advisor position. You’ll get the same level of training and support as our full-time advisors, without the commitment of a full-time role.

Our busiest time of year is Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP), which runs from October 15– December 7 every year. And we need extra hands to help us handle the volume.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Our first training class for seasonal roles starts on August 5, and the position lasts through December 7.
  • You get the exact same training and resources as our full-time advisors to set you up for success right away.
  • You’ll earn your resident state life and health insurance license, which you can take with you anywhere, and it’s renewable.
  • Advisors earn an average of $30k from July to December (our top earner pulled in $55k) 

So, if you’re in the market for some supplemental salary to make your next big move, our seasonal sales advisor positions can help you do it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Spring Venture Group (Kansas City, MO) in December 2017.

    Interview

    A very different kind of interview more focused on how well you know yourself and can think and react critically than about your work or professional experience. Afterwards, they let you shadow an agent let you get an idea for the job.
