Indeed Incubator combines the best of startup and big-tech worlds: fast-paced 0-to-1 product development with agile teams like a startup; security, compensation, and career progression of a big tech company.
What is Incubator?
The Incubator is a product accelerator charged with pioneering new product ideas; we do everything, including assessing viability, launching MVP, iterating, and scaling our products. Incubator has more than 100 employees across engineering, product, and design; we have 15 agile teams where each team explores and executes on a new initiative. Metered funding rounds keep us in check – don’t kill good ideas too early, don’t let bad ideas run for too long.
Attributes of Successful Product Managers in Incubator
This role is in an IC role with a director’s scope of responsibility. Product managers are effectively CEOs of their initiative, and they are representing Indeed in a new unexplored space with the help of their team (engineers, design, marketing, sales, etc.) Product managers with the following attributes excel in this role:
- Thrive in Ambiguity: Incubator specializes in ambiguous 0-to-1 product spaces. PMs carve the path and change it early and often as they collect more signals.
- Strong Leadership:Incubator focuses on unchartered spaces that no one else in the company is exploring. The PMs define Indeed’s point of view for these new spaces.
- Strong Execution: This entails leading your team with fast-paced execution, using experimentation and user research to inform decisions, learning from new information and adjusting accordingly, communicating and managing relationships with stakeholders – both internal (your direct team) and external (senior leaders across the company, for example).
Who You Are
12+ years of product management experience in tech companies; the ideal candidate will have experience working at a startup (extra points for founders) and experience working for big tech companies.
