We're looking for Product Managers excited to join a brand new group inside of a large, multinational enterprise - a role that offers the impact potential of a startup combined with the resources and complexities of a publicly-traded enterprise.

This a Chicago-based or remote position. Due to COVID-19 precautions, the team is currently all-remote but we anticipate fully re-opening our offices after June.

For Chicago applicants, we have a brand-new space in The Loop in The (New) Old Post Office 433 W. Van Buren Street, Chicago.

Throughout the PDLC, you'll navigate prioritization trade-offs to bring the most value to our customers, workers and business to ensure we are driving towards our strategic goals.
  • Measure and learn. You'll determine and track product health and business metrics to test hypotheses and identify improvement opportunities.
  • Collaborate and communicate. This is a highly collaborative role. You'll work closely with product designers, technical product owners and developers to define product functionality and consult and inform stakeholders from across the organization.
  • Help shape a brand-new organization. You'll be on the ground floor of a new product development org and help shape our product practice and team culture.
  • Reimagine the way people connect people to work.

What we're looking for:

  • 5 years' experience in software development space with at least 2 years in a product manager/owner role. Past experience in fields like customer support, product design and development encouraged.
  • Ability to frame a problem, shape a solution and champion change
  • History taking initiative and making positive change in an organization
  • Excellent understanding of Agile Scrum and Kanban software development practices
  • Familiarity with software engineering and development technologies (especially native mobile and enterprise business software)

  • Ability to pick up technical and business concepts quickly
  • Strong communication skills and ability to break down complex information into relevant, digestible points for colleagues and executives

  • Software implementation experience
  • Experience building native mobile apps
  • History launching new products
