This is an opportunity to make a huge impact on our job seekers and get hands on with our core job search technology.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 3-5 years combined product management, data science, or engineering experience
  • You can write a basic SQL query and aren't afraid to dive into data
  • Work with Executive, Product, Engineering, Analytics, Sales, and Marketing teams to prioritize and launch improvements to our search technology.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with AI/ML products
  • Experience as a product or business leader, owning and driving business outcomes
  • You can read and write pseudocode - you speak a common technical language
  • Motivated Learner: You don't need to know everything, but you're resourceful and motivated - you're not afraid to relentlessly ask questions and absorb information from the experts around you.
  • Communication: You are an excellent communicator who is able to effectively write, speak, educate, and persuade in a variety of contexts. You are comfortable with both synchronous and asynchronous communication.
  • Collaborative: You work exceptionally well across engineering, product, analytics, sales, and marketing.
  • Knows What's Important: You prioritize based on the business' needs and make smart tradeoffs to support key strategic objectives.
  • Technical: You're not necessarily a former engineer or data scientist (a plus if you are!) but you're not scared of digging into the nitty-gritty. You know what's inside the black box and know how to improve it. You use your technical understanding to inform your product roadmap and drive business outcomes.

  • Leadership: You are effective at leading a cross-functional team without authority, driving execution and making team members more productive.
  • Efficient: You build minimum viable products, measure, learn, and iterate in a fast- paced environment.
  • Hands On: You enjoy rolling up your sleeves and getting into the weeds every day when needed.
  • Customer Centric: You focus on the customer experience, and business use cases, not simply building new features.
