The Role

The Bottom Line

A famous futurist said, “Moats are lame. The pace of innovation is what matters’” Yet, most scaled companies aren’t good at either.

For this specific role, we are looking for an experienced product leader to lead the vision, the team and ultimately our market in redefining the way our target customers think about running their business. This product leader is someone who thrives in developing and launching new products from scratch.

We believe every company can be successful with the right technology and that every individual can be successful with the right culture.

  • The chance to learn from some of the best people in the business, including the company's founders
  • A vibrant, collaborative and devoted team, who still makes time for fun
  • Snacks? Check. Drinks? Check. Game nights? Check!

We value, respect, and celebrate everyone's individualities and honor their unique strengths from all different walks of life. We believe that embracing the diversity of thought and perspective encourages collaboration that leads to product(and people!) innovation, diverse products, and a successful business.
