Companies rely on our client to connect them efficiently and intelligently with experts across all industries and regions.

They are looking for an Associate Product Manager to join the team and help provide the world with on-demand access to dispersed, hidden, and underutilized knowledge.

About the Role

The Product Manager role will focus on an incredibly diverse set of challenges and opportunities. From figuring out how to seamlessly pay experts across 120 countries in almost any currency to building a global conferencing platform to host calls between clients and experts, PMs have a huge impact on the growth of the company and the broader knowledge search industry.

As a Product Manager, you'll be working with a dedicated team of engineers and designers on new challenges, applying your problem-solving and creative skills to deliver value to clients, experts, and internal users. You'll have significant autonomy to define how you execute your role and the ability to influence how the growing Product team works. It's a great opportunity for a driven individual to take the next step in their Product career.

On a daily basis, you'll:

  • Develop and evangelize the vision for your product area, and inspire your team, stakeholders, and wider company, empowering others to make great decisions
  • Contribute to the product strategy for your area of focus and create and maintain the road-map, validating and prioritizing the products we need to develop
  • Carry out qualitative and quantitative research, including discovery sessions, white-boarding, user interviews, UX studies, and data analysis
  • Understand the key user needs and business requirements behind each initiative, and distill this into concrete requirements, in the form of a prioritized backlog, for the development team
  • Collaborate with Engineers and Designers during development, acting as the domain expert and voice of the user
  • Contribute to planning sessions, retrospectives, and other Agile meetings

Who you are:

  • 3-5 years experience
  • Love tackling complex problems in ambiguous environments and have the grit and creativity to get to a great solution
  • Are analytical and have a knack for problem-solving
  • Soft-skills: user empathy, user journey, road-mapping, tech intelligence, research points, partner and road-mapping, stakeholder management
  • Have the ability to both think big picture and deep-dive into the details when necessary
  • Are known for your project management and organizational skills
  • Have a strong appreciation for what makes a great user experience, and how that translates into success for the business
