Product Manager YouNoodle, Inc.
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED The product vision of YouNoodle is to become the global hub for very early-stage entrepreneurs, ideally before they start their companies. There are hundreds of millions of such human entrepreneurial seeds, and if they were all connected in the right context, the socioeconomic impact would be enormous.
As the ideal candidate, you have built organically growing consumer web products before. You have a passion for entrepreneurship and believe in the global entrepreneurial revolution. And you can see this dream materialize through a highly addictive network of entrepreneurial opportunities.
We have the global connections and partners to make it happen. Our Podium product (http://podium.younoodle.com) is the world's leading entrepreneurship selection platform, and the YouNoodle brand is widely associated with passion, excitement, and energy. Your job is to combine the two opportunities into an organically growing network, which makes entrepreneurs see the world of inspiration beyond Podium.
You are able to work with a cross-disciplinary team of engineers, designers, marketers, and internal+external clients, in order to execute on the product vision. You know everything about the opportunities inherent in OpenGraph, key social APIs, analytics/data-driven product growth, A/B testing, and ideally you aren't a complete stranger to writing code yourself.
YouNoodle is a San Francisco-based company, founded in 2010, by Rebeca Hwang and Torsten Kolind, backed by a group of business angels from the US, Europe and Asia.
The company was spun off an ambitious project started by Bob Goodson and Kirill Makharinsky in 2007 with support from Peter Thiel (Founders Fund) and Max Levchin (PayPal), which also spawned Quid (Goodson) and indirectly Ostrovok (Makharinsky).
YouNoodle is an online network where entrepreneurs can discover, get inspired by, and interact with like-minded people all over the world. The goal? Increase the probability of success for the every day entrepreneur, no matter where they are located.
By creating a central place to gather and share next steps we are increasing the concentration of entrepreneurs available to connect with and, subsequently, the probability that you will meet your next team member, investor, or co-founder.

Podium manages the application, selection and judging processes for 7 out of the world's top 10 universities as well as for organizations like Intel, Amazon, NASA, The Next Web and Start-Up Chile.
