Product Manager – Desktop Software

About Paddle

Our mission is to help software businesses succeed – enabling them to focus on crafting products the world loves. Hundreds of developers and software companies rely on our checkout, payments and licensing solution to sell their products globally, as well as using our powerful analytics and marketing tools to understand and grow their businesses.

We’re one of the fastest growing software companies in the UK. Our revenue tripled last year and in the last 6 months our team has doubled to over 30 people in our shiny new HQ near London Bridge. We’ve received over $5m in funding from BGF Ventures and Kindred Capital, and are proud to be one of Tech City’s Upscale 2017 rising stars.

We believe the way software businesses are run is changing and we’re building a product to drive this change. We have a number of products in our platform that are used by customers who sell desktop software (release management, crash reporting and licensing). We’re looking for someone to own these products and help fulfil our vision.
