Product Manager Betterment
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED About the right team member:
You are a smart, self-managed, battle-tested technologist who knows how to take an idea and turn it into something real in an interactive consumer-facing environment. You are frustrated with financial products and know you can build a better customer experience.
You possess the supernatural ability to be both technical and creative, while acting as a guiding light for what customers want/need (even if they don't know it yet). As the voice of the customer you can deliver a complex product that appears simple and intuitive to a non-technical audience.
You have to be a strong communicator and love working with geeks. You'll work with engineers to define product release requirements, and with marketing to define go-to-market strategies. That means you need to speak two languages in addition to your own (actually three languages when you count the customers').
-- Own and manage all aspects of the product lifecycle and user experience for a given product
-- Specify requirements for current and future products at a functional and technical level
-- Translate product strategies, market trends, and customer feedback into specific tactical plans and clearly defined phased releases
-- Research technical, business, and legal requirements to ensure the product satisfies all potential needs
-- Develop a deep understanding of the competitive landscape through analysis, user research, and site testing
-- Develop mockup interaction designs, including user interaction models, wire frames, screen flows, and dialog copy
-- Analyze and present hard data and metrics to back up assumptions and feature concepts
-- Perform ongoing analysis and propose necessary actions to ensure continued marketability of the product
-- Work with external third parties to assess partnerships and licensing opportunities
We are seeking candidates who exhibit a strong desire to work in a startup environment and a record of high achievement. Successful candidates will have:
-- 2-5 years of product management and design experience in web-based or mobile businesses
-- Bachelor's degree from a top tier college
-- Excellent communication skills, both written and spoken
-- A desire to tinker all the time while still getting the day job done
-- Extra attention to detail
-- Creativity, breadth of interests, and initiative
-- Experience or background with computers and technology
-- Great organizational skills
-- Ability to learn quickly
-- Knowledge of the financial services space
-- Excel analysis and database querying skills (MySQL or equivalent)
-- Competitive compensation, stock options, health care, etc.
-- New computer setup of your choosing
-- Free hot eats and cool treats, gym membership
-- Create something that will change the world and the way people treat their money
