The Hired Guns are seeking an innovative Product Manager, Platform with back-end and front-end experience to join a D2C startup that is completely disrupting the haircare industry.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This environmentally-conscious haircare startup is rethinking everything about their space, from how people wash and care for their hair to how hairdressers retail products to their clients. They’re redefining what it means to be a truly sustainable business in the context of our ever-changing political, social and economic environment. Their revenue is growing over 50% a year, and they’re keeping pace by building out a team of expert and diverse talent. And that’s where you come in:
Right now they’re looking for a talented Product Manager, Platform to join their team and help them migrate from a custom-built system (that no longer supports their needs) to one that is highly flexible and built from external components like Shopify and Recharge. This company enables salons to sell their product and earn commission, which is a big differentiator. And when this replatforming project ends, you’ll effectively steer that highly strategic side of the business by owning the salons’ digital experience (profile and personalization, sales and commission tracking, customer referrals, and more) and working closely with product, engineering, and UX to deliver features, functionality, and enhancements.
In short, this is a rare opportunity to work at a proven D2C startup that is completely disrupting the haircare industry in terms of sustainability, inclusivity, and design. This role won’t last long – act fast if you think you’re a fit!
Perks include a great compensation package, a meaningful equity stake, medical, dental, and vision insurance, a Citibike membership, a flexible work environment, unlimited paid time off … oh, and an 80% employee discount code that can be applied on all orders for your household so you’ll never have to buy shampoo again!
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You have a minimum of 3 years of experience as a Product Manager at an agency or in-house team. You have long-term aspirations to work on front-end projects, but you live and breathe back-end work today. Systems or app experience is a big plus! You communicate well with engineers and write clear, detailed user stories for developers to execute on. Ideally, you’ve worked at a startup with a complex business model or a two-sided marketplace. You understand the nuance of building platforms and the keen attention to detail that it requires. Perhaps you’ve built a platform before for a startup and/or you have experience with large migrations. You’re a nimble problem solver who is passionate, positive, and interested in making an impact. Not to mention, you have a deep curiosity for data when it comes to gaining insights and building a case for a feature, initiative or decision. Working for an innovative, sustainable company that prioritizes integrity is exciting to you.
The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this organization!
If you do this job right, you’ll get to help build and own the front-end experience for a major startup’s website. As the first person to hold this role, you’ll have direct reports within a year and will steer the entire product discipline. Plus, you’ll be joining an eco-friendly, sustainable startup that is shaking up a very traditional market. Ready to join a band of people who have a rebellious spirit and cherish anyone who is anti-authority? Great … we want to hear from you today!
