Product Manager

Product Manager

Influence technology that actually matters.

Simprints builds cutting-edge technology for some of the poorest and most challenging environments on earth. We are working at the exciting interface of biometrics, tech, and international development: changing the status quo in the way NGOs and governments deliver vital services like vaccines, healthcare, finance, and emergency aid.  Working with top partners like Google and ARM, we build IoT hardware and software with modern tools like Kotlin, Firebase, and Google Cloud with an aim to reach 4 million beneficiaries by 2021.

We are looking for a resourceful Product Manager to join our growing team. You need to be sharp, collaborative, a quick learner, and able to thrive in a startup environment. You should have a solid grasp of engineering, data analytics and strategy, and able to contribute to high-quality products that will impact millions of beneficiaries. Past experience with directing product lifecycles and the genuine desire to develop world-class skills are the ideal fit. You will have a wide-breadth of knowledge and are always looking to learn and improve.
