Our growing team of twenty-two are made up of Engineers, Product Designers, Marketing and Customer Success folks in more than eight countries.
About the Role
We are looking to hire a Senior Product Manager. This is a unique opening at Float, a role previously held by our CEO, who’s looking to hand the reins to an experienced PM as we enter our next stage of growth.
Working with our CEO, CTO and two seasoned Product Designers, you’ll be helping define the future of team capacity planning for professional service teams around the world. Our customers are typically leaders at creative agencies, studios and firms, that rely on Float for its deep resource planning capabilities, and integration with their existing PM and chat services. You’ll expand on these strengths, with a specific focus on the enterprise.
The family of Float products includes our desktop browser app, iOS and Android apps, dedicated integrations and an API. You’ll influence the path of all of these products.
You’ll cover the full gamut of Product: Shaping the product roadmap, writing specifications for product features, setting success metrics and measuring our products against them. There’ll be elements of Project Management, our roadmap usually results in 4-6 key features we plan on delivering in a 6-week cycle. You’ll be coordinating with our engineering and QA leads to see these into production, maintaining the bar for both quality and performance.
Last but not least, you’ll drive Product innovation at Float, carving out opportunities to experiment with new technologies as they arise, from iOS14 widgets, to new data visualisations, ensuring we’re at the forefront when it comes to better and faster ways for teams to plan time.
We’re looking for someone with experience managing best-in-class products at scale. You’re capable of zooming out and seeing the full picture – translating the company vision into an actionable product strategy – and zooming in to execute on that strategy, defining that work and seeing those features into production. The challenges of scaling a SaaS are familiar to you, and you have a strong grasp of SaaS metrics.
You have a great sense and appreciation for design. You use data to validate your intuition. You possess excellent writing skills, comfortable communicating ideas in a predominantly asynchronous environment.
Perhaps you’re currently at an established SaaS and are looking for an opportunity to carve your own path, and have a greater impact on a growing team and an industry-leading product.
The salary range for this role is US $130-$150K. Compensation is benchmarked using 50th percentile San Francisco market salaries, with a cost-of-living index applied to your location. We assess your level during the interview process. If you are outside the US, you’ll be hired as a Contractor.
We have a range of expanding and improving perks that you’ll have access to including:
- Home office expense budget: We help you kickstart or upgrade your home office setup.
- Co-working expense budget: A budget for when you’d like to work out of home.
- Annual team meetup: We get together as a full team every year, the last two were in Athens and Lisbon. We will continue this tradition when the time is right.
- Care for your community. Two days a year for you to support with your time, or donate with your wage, for a local charity of your choosing.
- Team liquidity pool: Rewarding our team if there’s ever an exit
If you’re in the US, we pay 50% of your medical, dental & vision coverage, including partners and children.
We encourage people of different locations, backgrounds and perspectives. Due to the specific requirements of the role, we’re looking for someone with at least two hours cross-over with Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).
