It’s a great opportunity to work with all aspects of our business, from sales enablement to uphold developers with a great foundation when building commerce sites.

🔥 What you'll be responsible for

  • Manage the roadmap for our component library, extensions, and demo site: talk to customers, comprehend their problems, and prioritize this work so your team is always working on the most impactful initiatives
  • Think big, scope small, and quickly iterate collectively with your team to make sure that you solve the right problems
  • Use your product sense, collectively with a qualitative and data-informed approach to creating components and extensions that developers and business users love
  • Inspire your peers and build partnerships across all departments in delivering an excellent product

🤔 What's it like working in our Product team?

We focus on solving customers' problems. To do that, we have to constantly learn new things. We have to rely on each other, trust each other, and know each other's strengths. The way we work together as a team makes this seem easy and gives a true sense of collaboration.” — Catherine, Product Manager

💪 What you'll accomplish in your first 90-days

  • Develop an understanding of our product, its value proposition and differentiation, and how it fits into the current commerce landscape
  • Get to know the company, the different teams, and how you can be an ally
  • Get to know your cross-functional team, take part in planning, co-working sessions, and other ceremonies
  • Get to know our customers by attending customer and prospect meetings and reading notes from previous sessions
  • Learn how we sell our product, how your team can contribute to our sales team, and the use cases that need to be reinforced by our demo site
  • Assist in the quarterly product review and planning
  • Develop the roadmap for our components and extensions collectively with the Chief Product Officer

🧩 You'll likely have this experience

  • Experience in planning iterations and writing product briefs that capture the problems you want to solve and the use cases you want to enable
  • Previously worked with developers to come up with solution briefs and continuously improve team culture and assess alternative choices
  • Familiar with both qualitative and quantitative customer insights especially when it comes to helping the sales team with pitches using the component library and demo site
  • Self-assured presenter and facilitator. You can clearly communicate product resolutions and the rationale behind them. Not afraid to go against consensus by asking the right questions.
  • Self-starter, looking for pragmatic solutions
  • Experience working with structured content and design systems is a plus

👏 We're offering:

  • A remote setup and processes tailored for remote workers
  • The freedom of planning your work around life and not the other way round — we want you to bring your full self to work, and this includes owning your daily routines
  • A company laptop of your choice and a personal budget for any additional equipment you need — you'll be able to purchase it yourself with a virtual company credit card
  • A 5-day yearly retreat where we meet with the whole team and spend time together at a beautiful place for additional social bonding
