Senior Product Manager
If you love food and wellness and want to join our mission to heal bodies and minds using food as medicine, then we'd love to meet you. We're hiring a senior product manager who will work closely with our CEO to manage our backlog and drive our highest priority projects forward. You’ll have an opportunity to work on all kinds of initiatives from growth and optimization, to new feature development, and launching new product offerings.
This role is remote as our tech team is spread out across the country, so you'll work from home. However if you’re in the SF Bay Area, you will have the option to work from our offices there. If you’re in the LA Area, you will have the ability to pair weekly in person with the CEO and one of our Engineers.
If you're currently at a large tech company and are tired of the bureaucracy and how slow-moving everything is, you'll love joining our nimble team. We've worked together for nearly 8 years, so you're joining a team that gets along extremely well and has a high degree of mutual respect and trust.
In this role, your work will have a major impact on:
A product that's a key part of our customers' everyday lives and empowers them to feel their absolute best every day
The effectiveness of our product in helping customers stay engaged in order to achieve their wellness goals
Attracting new customers motivated to change their lives through consistent, healthy eating
Translating complex business ideas and goals into products with high attention to detail that illustrate simplicity and sound functionality
Helping spread awareness and education throughout America about food as medicine
Improve our technology at every part of the customer lifecycle as well as the tech we've built to support our internal customer support, operations, and culinary teams
Develop innovative digital education products that can be used by anyone in the country, regardless of whether they can get our food
Mange our tech backlog by writing and prioritizing engineering stories
Analyze data to ensure our decisions and prioritization are not only intuitive but backed by sound data analysis
Ensure our product roadmap moves along quickly enough to hit our key deadlines
Ensure the engineers and designers on your projects understand the context behind the work that you ask them to do
Ensure that the Engineering team hits its timelines and goals 100% of the time
Desired Skills and Experience:
You have at least 6 years of product management experience at a tech company - highly engaged social media companies, viral brands, and innovative ecommerce sites preferred
Able to set up best-in-class product management practices and systems where there currently are none
Able to work backwards from a long-term product vision to create a clear product roadmap that gives the team clear direction
Able to work systematically and strategically to make product enhancements that get us to product market fit
Able to motivate and inspire your team and other teams at the business
Able to manage up properly to remain constantly in sync with the founders
Able to collaborate effectively across teams
Able to write clear and accurate stories for an engineering backlog
Your background is very strong either on the technical side or the user experience design side (we are looking for a product person for this role, not a marketer)
Highly analytical and able to easily analyze data sets in Excel
Possess deep curiosity about the principles of nutrition, health and wellness
Highly collaborative with team orientation; always defaults to "we" over "me"
Ability to work proactively and effectively, with minimal guidance and oversight; is an exceptional creative problem solver
Decisive, action-oriented, scrappy and resourceful
Is highly empathic and committed to "do the most good for the most people"
Comfortable working in a fast-paced entrepreneurial environment where everyone is expected to make a big impact
Flexible, well-organized and able to manage a high-volume workload and numerous projects simultaneously under deadline pressures
The opportunity to do meaningful work and help people live healthier, more vibrant lives
A collaborative team environment where you'll have the opportunity to contribute to, work with and learn from other smart people
Generous compensation, equity participation, and comprehensive health, dental, and vision
Able to work remotely from anywhere
