Product Manager

Come join us in our mission to change the Future of Work! 

Founded in 2016, we at Forecast are augmenting project-based organizations with intelligent automation so our customers can predict the future, operate at maximum efficiency, and profitably deliver beyond expectations. Our powerful and intuitive AI puts the cumulative skills and learnings from hundreds of thousands of projects to work for every user, every day. We work on connecting project management, resource management and financial management in an intuitive and easy-to-use way. We are growing massively every month, and need the best people to help us make an amazing product for our customers.

Are you our new Product Manager?

In this exciting opportunity, you will be leading the product direction and decisions in a dedicated cross-functional team that is responsible for project management and collaboration. The team consists of developers, a UX designer, a UI designer, and you as a product manager. You will be responsible for making the world’s best project management platform for professional service organizations (e.g. agencies, consultancies, and software houses). Together with designers and developers, you are responsible for discovery, conceptualization, prioritization of what the team needs to work on, and releasing successful features to the professional service market. An essential part of this is facing customers to figure out what can help them the most by bringing the future of work into their lives through simple and easy-to-use solutions to their problems. We believe in creating simple solutions first (that users can easily learn), which users can power up when they get deeper into this product.

Who we are looking for

We’re looking for someone who naturally takes leadership, can handle complexity and can understand how to simplify thousands of customer requests into focus areas which help many. Three main skill areas in this role are a strong user/industry understanding, knowledge of software development and good usability understanding. You should use these skills to drive a solution from idea to market release.
