Job Description

Who You Are:

As a Product Manager of Growth, you’re analytically-minded and enjoy focusing on product initiatives that accelerate growth. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and want to be at the forefront of driving innovation for our customers.  You are results-driven and collaborate with marketing, analytics, design and engineering to identify and launch experiments. Your curiosity inspires you to test and iterate, and you won’t be afraid to try things that may fail quickly or unlock growth opportunities. You are data-driven and excited by the opportunity to navigate large volumes of data and analytics to gain insights and ideas.

  • Communicating vision and priorities internally and externally
  • Being a point of contact for internal and external teams such as Customer Care, Customer Success, Sales and Channel Partners
  • Success in this role will be measured by the company's ability to achieve its strategic objectives, your ability to play a serious role in that success and your fit within our core values.


Experience and Skills Needed:

  • Willingness to challenge the status quo

What Would Be Awesome To Have:

  • Basic SQL skills
  • Experience with data analytics platforms for both web and mobile
  • Prior experience working with and guiding software engineers
  • Prior experience at a startup and/or SaaS company
