Full-Time Product Manager
Determined to take your product career to the next level? Are you interested in solving problems for a diverse set of products, clients, and their vast user bases that always keep you on your toes? Already have a half dozen successful (and preferably some unsuccessful) product launches under your belt?
TWG is looking to meet an experienced Digital Product Manager to join our team and help us on our mission to become the best product management team in Canada. What do we do? We help create new businesses out of nothing but ideas, as well as work with existing products to help accelerate growth.
As a company that has a reputation for solving tough product challenges (which is partly why 70% of TWG new hires come from referrals!), we are looking to add product managers who have the breadth of experience to truly innovate on product thinking. Come join our fast-growing product team and work with a wide range of industries and products – from Fintech to Edtech, Media to Emerging Technologies, building web and mobile products for well funded startups and Fortune 500 companies.
