The Team: Discover
Discover is one of the products in SigFig’s ecosystem and this is the team that is squarely focused on it. Think of Discover like a “digital financial doctor”. It helps consumers:solve existing financial problems, diagnose tougher ones, uncover non-obvious ones, proactively prevent issues before they even occur, and lastly refer to additional professionals when necessary.
If you’re thinking this is a lot, it is! That’s why we work in an empowered product model. The team consists of engineers, designers, & product managers working as peers focused on driving outcomes. Our motto is “minimize outputs, maximize impact.”
By bringing engineering, design, & product management together we believe we have the best chance of finding solutions consumers love that work for our business. So if you’re an entrepreneurial spirit, prolific at your craft, and love the challenge of traversing large search spaces to solve difficult problems with innovative technology, this might be just the team for you.
The Opportunity: Senior Product Manager
As a Senior Product Manager you’ll have two parallel responsibilities: discovery & delivery.
As part of continuous discovery you will work inside a “triad” with design & engineering to brainstorm and prototype solutions to solve consumer problems. As you build deep knowledge about our buyers, users, consumers, data, industry, domain, business, company, & product; the triad will benefit from having you on the team as the oracle of surrounding context to succeed holistically. Then, in collaboration with sales & marketing, the triad will work to test viability in the market by taking the concepts consumers love and seeing how well they sell. While we can’t completely eliminate value, feasibility, usability, & viability risk without testing in the real product the goal is to do our best at only delivering high ROI outputs.
In parallel, as part of the triad doing continuous delivery, you’ll be responsible for taking experiences you validated in discovery and building them into production grade software the financial industry can reliably run their business on. Here, it’s expected you are familiar with world class delivery techniques & are highly analytical to figure out how we can evaluate success. Of course, this is a team effort so you’ll be partnering with other talented members of the team to deliver value to the market as quickly as possible in the form of production grade software.
How You’ll Make an Impact
Discover: working quickly as a triad to understand problems & discover solutions in a way only a truly empowered engineering, design, & PM triad could
Deliver: no amount of incredible prototypes matter if consumers & partners can’t actually experience the power of what we provide through state of the art delivery techniques into production fast
Generate Impact: combine deductive & inductive reasoning to maximize the chance the triad succeeds given internal & external information along with high velocity feedback loops
Creativity & Collaboration: creativity is a poorly understood concept; but what we do know is when creative parts come together in a collaborative whole a form of magic can happen which can then be seen through customer & business results
Why We Value You
Growth Mindset: You soak in the diverse perspective of those around you and bring a growth mindset everyday.
Ego-Less: You believe we are all here to find the truth, not to validate our egos. You are a truth seeker. You debate to discover the truth, regardless where it comes from.
Strong Opinions, Weakly Held: You change your mind without a flinch when you realize you are wrong. People not familiar with cognitive fallacies might find you inconsistent.
Deep, Strategic Thinker: you know time to value is of essence so you’re not afraid to dive in and do a depth first search to solve a problem versus when it’s time well spent to zoom out and do a breadth first search.
ROI Driven: You value truly understanding the consumer & business context so you can repeatedly put your top tier skills to use in high ROI ways to benefit the consumer & the business.
Systems Oriented: You’ve developed such a deep mastery of product mental models, delivery techniques, thinking frameworks that you can pinpoint where in the process things are failing to help the team succeed more often.
Dreamer & Realist: You oscillate between being a dreamer and a realist. That’s because you know vision is admirable but at times being practical is the best thing you can do to help those around you.
