We need problem solvers, creative thinkers, and people who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty.



RESPONSIBILITIES:


  • Define, scope, and prioritize Andela’s Client Side Marketplace Product roadmap; you will own an entire product category.

  • Own and lead all aspects of an established agile team: writing user stories and acceptance criteria, backlog grooming, triage and prioritization, demos, end to end product execution, cross-functional leadership.

  • Establish and maintain credibility within engineering, the business, and our users.

QUALIFICATIONS:


  • 5+ years of product management experience at a software company, marketplace or B2B preferred. 7+ years overall work experience.

  • Degree in Computer Science or Engineering preferred, but not a dealbreaker.

  • Consensus-builder; develops relationships across the company with ease.

  • Technical fluency; you don’t have to be an engineer, but you do need to speak the language.

  • Ability to build wireframes and mockups, with a knack for keeping things simple.

  • Strong understanding of how to truly propose and build a lean MVP and scope out further milestones for a product or feature.

  • Detail oriented and a high bar for quality when it comes to writing stories, acceptance criteria, launch plans, and testing a feature before greenlighting its launch to users.

  • Strong project management with the ability to identify and communicate blockers, next steps, and progress.

  • Strong analytical skills and fluency with data, with the ability to use a variety of tools to gather and synthesize information (experience with Google Analytics, BigQuery, Looker a major plus).

  • Excellent written and verbal communication with a tendency to over-document and over-communicate: we are fully remote, so this is very important!

  • Humble and willing to learn/grow. We need confident and capable PMs who want to help each other succeed as much as they want to help our talent succeed.
