VP of Product and Design

Roadmunk is a privately held, high-growth start-up in the rapidly emerging market of Product Management software. Roadmunk was born out of a problem our founders experienced personally: there was no simple way for product managers to collect feedback, surface customer-driven insights and create roadmaps using a single platform. So we went out and built it for ourselves, making sure it was collaborative, beautifully designed and secure.

Today, we serve thousands of forward-thinking product teams including those from organizations like Amazon, Disney, Sonos and Under Armour.

In the fall of 2019, Roadmunk was 12th in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards for its rapid revenue growth and bold innovation. The Fast 50 program recognizes Canada’s 50 fastest growing technology companies with the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. Roadmunk also ranked 96th on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 List for North America.

The ultimate responsibility of this role is ownership of our product strategy & design and execution of building product management software in a high-growth market to create immense value for our customers.

We are looking for someone who has brought products from their infancy, driving their adoption, care about meticulous design, being innovative around user problems, obsesses around feedback and working directly with customers to create world-class products.

They see opportunities where others see challenges, and take pride in their ability to communicate complex interactions, simply and clearly. They recruit and lead a product team through all stages of the product development life-cycle, driving conversion, engagement and retention through value in the product and lead collaboration, communication and the dissemination of knowledge to Roadmunk’s go-to-market and leadership teams.

This person will be an executive member, leading a cross-functional team of product managers, designers, product marketers and collaborating with engineering, go-to-market teams to progress towards our product vision.
