This role is centered around our next big vertical and you will build a product (almost) from scratch, so it requires both the ability to research and understand users to define the highest potential needs to solve for, while fitting into a larger strategic move with other teams. Beyond understanding user needs and the ability to deliver a great user experience, this role has to build community engagement across a very large and scaling talent platform.

  • Work with cross-functional stakeholders (Science, IP development, Customer Success, Sales, Marketing, etc.). to factor their feedback and insights into product decisions
  • Talk to users on a regular basis: our customers that create assessments as well as candidates taking the assessment
  • Leverage data and user insights to create solutions that satisfy and solve user needs
  • Create clear and thoughtful documentation that can easily be understood and used by both technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • Ensure UX and product-led growth is at the heart of what we build
  • Gain a broader understanding of trends in the HR and HR-tech vertical that impact product development
  • Work in a collaborative, talented distributed team across the globe

 

Here’s what we’re looking for

  • You are inspired by our mission to place one billion people in dream jobs
  • You are fully aligned with our values
  • You have a track record of shipping and scaling high-quality products that effectively service the needs of both customers and the business
  • You have creative and innovative problem-solving skills and feel comfortable engaging in detailed conversations about strategy and product design with both non-technical and technical audiences
  • You are data-driven and use that skill to drive strategic decisions for the product you are working on. Making sure we tackle the biggest opportunities in the most effective way
  • You’re able to think big, but start small. You can establish a north star for your product while maintaining an agile mindset towards getting there.
  • You have a user-first mindset. You’re passionate about understanding their needs and continuously improving their experience
  • You have strong collaboration and relationship-building skills that allow you to build cross-functional relationships
  • You have excellent communication skills (both written and verbal) and attention to detail
  • You are comfortable with ambiguity and thrive in the fast-paced environment of a startup that is operating remotely around the globe
  • We typically expect candidates with at least 5 years of experience in a Product Management position to have the skills mentioned above.

  • You have worked with building engagement-driven platforms like social media or marketplaces
  • You have experience working in a high-growth product-led startup
