If you don't get excited by the end of this job post then this product manager position isn't for you.
This is for you (yes, YOU) out there who are the type of person who will build the train tracks before there's even a train in existence that's able to cover that distance. It takes vision to know that it was just a matter of time before one will come. Cue Karl Ritter von Ghega and the Semmering Railway.
It's someone like you who convinces 20 000 workers to build the tracks now.
This role demands bravery - you'll need courage in your convictions, and the vision to see beyond the next sprint and the complexity it brings into the bigger picture: to change the way we all work today.
By we, we're not talking internally here at (COMPANY NAME). That'd be one thing. Instead, we're talking we as in the collective "we". Be it bankers, lawyers, teachers, doctors, electricians - you name it. All of us as a collective workforce work one way today. Many things will change over time about how we work - and the thing that we at (COMPANY NAME) are solving is company expensing.
For employees it means no more out-of-pocket spending, or credit card borrowing. We empower employees with delegated spending that's nice and simple. Use your card, get a push, upload the receipt and you're done.
This puts the employee first, and makes sure that they aren't hurt by outdated company process and policies.
Because we put the employee at the centre of all this, you'll find us to be user-obsessed (don't take our word for it - check out our Trustpilot page: https://wxx.xxxxxxxxxx.xxx/xxxxxx/xxxx.xo). We put ourselves in the user's position every day, and try to minimise the major pains they feel.
We are on one hell of a journey - our growth will either terrify or delight you. We're looking for someone who this not only delights, but who is also inspired and energised by this type of challenge. We're looking for someone longing to be part of a journey like ours: someone who's looking to put their shower thoughts to good use.
The hard skills needed
* You probably have a technical background and transitioned into Product management, working on products that are more technically complex.
* You have relevant experience from working in the fintech/card/open banking spaces.
* You have skills that allow you to easily extract, analyze and present complex datasets in ways that tell stories about existing products and make the case for future improvements.
* You are able to understand technical challenges and make educated trade-offs with your team.
* Your are very effective in communicating (and gaining trust) with your development team. This is because you will be cooperating closely with a 100% internal backend tech team, that includes engineers and testers.
* You think about emerging development and technology trends in the fintech space
* You are comfortable with creating a product vision, roadmap, conducting market research, acccesing risk and coordinating the team to keep everyone working towards a single goal.
Your colleagues say you
* When asked what's going on with some production code, you are psyched to dive into logs and figure out the problem
* Probably build products which enable others to build
* Are easy to work with and a person they would also enjoy having a coffee with (virtual or not)
* Challenge the status quo, and give good arguments why
* Always get things done no matter what
* Can't stop talking about product and fintech trends
* Listen to feedback but is strong enough to drive your own vision
Your mom says that you
* You are too productive and efficient - you get things done
* Played with Lego as a kid and built things
* Always ask why
* Take on challenges happily
* Probably work in IT (moms)
Show me the benefits!
* Get your own (COMPANY NAME) card for no out of pocket spending, and full autonomy
* Flexible working remote options for those onsite (just speak to your team)
* Quarterly trips to somewhere for team camps (both company-wide ones and team-specific ones). One of the memorable ones was in June this year, including a drag queen show (we went authentic-Berlin), here's a sneak peak to give you an idea https://yxxxx.xx/xxxxxxxxxxc
* Investment in learning & developing (just check with your team for what's reasonable, we don't have set budgets)
* If you're here in Copenhagen's HQ: catered lunch in the office
And here are some other nice gestures that we do
- Loads of weird and wonderful niche communities to join in the company (we're talking guerrilla gardening, liquids tasting, the (COMPANY NAME) band, learning to code initiatives, that type of thing)
- Wild enthusiasm and encouragement from us if you want to host MeetUps, events, etc - we'll help (venue, food etc)
Working at (COMPANY NAME) means you're working on something very exciting: the future of work. Through fintech we've seen a way to impact how people work; we think company spending should be delegated to all employees and teams, that it should be as automated as possible, and that it should drive a culture of responsible spending.
Being HQ'd out of Copenhagen means we're inspired by sensible things like a good work-life balance. If you don't work in the office with us we'll help you get up the best remote set up possible, and will fly you in once a quarter for team camps (next one's in Ireland, just saying!).
