The Role

We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager that is detail-oriented, highly organised, user-obsessed, and able to see how the parts fit together across the software platform.

1) Cross-functional collaboration

You’ll be directing the product development process, working directly with the CEO and CTO and Design, on the full life-cycle of products (you'll be writing tickets and epics), and you'll be collaborating across the Woolf team to understand how product requirements meet customer, sales, operational, and legal requirements. You'll be communicating updates across all channels.

2) Product lifecycle

You’ll ensure that products are scoped and managed to meet launch deadlines, and that software development stages are aligned with product release cycles. Ticket prioritisation, time-management, and highly organised leadership are a must in this role. After launch, you’ll gather customer and data inputs for improvements and optimizations.

What we're looking for

  • Over 4 years of Product Management experience, managing software products from idea, to design, to QA, to production
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with a talent for precise articulations of customer problems, and clear, main-point-first, rational communication
  • You’re a meticulous product thinker who loves collaborating across the company
  • Experience shipping products with great user experiences
  • Persistence and a whatever-it-takes approach to ensure that product are successful, whether that means writing a QA plan or hunting down the root cause of a user’s frustration
  • You obsess about continuous product improvement and can optimize for shipping a portfolio of small, medium and large releases
  • A computer science, math, psychology, or sociology degree; or engineering experience
  • Experience working in a start up or in small, growing teams

Culture

  • We're a diverse, smart, international, and distributed team
  • Our product-engineering patterns are documented and respect our process
