Senior Product Manager

 
 

Role

MobilizeAmerica is at a pivotal point in its growth. We’ve successfully proven our core product in the 2018 midterms, where we worked with 450+ campaigns (including 33 out of the 38 flipped Democratic House seats) and drove over 380,000 people to 750,000+ volunteer shifts. Now we are growing the team and investing to have the maximum possible impact in 2020 and beyond.

As a Senior PM, you’ll have ownership over the product roadmap. You’ll work closely with our CTO to define MobilizeAmerica’s product strategy and will be responsible for allocating product and design resources.

You will:

  • Learn the needs of volunteers, progressive organizations and political campaigns, and use this knowledge to identify the best opportunities to leverage technology to improve growth, usability and conversion.

  • Develop the winning vision for MobilizeAmerica’s product. 

  • Rally the engineering team to deliver on your vision.

  • Build a roadmap that balances incremental improvements with new products or product lines that redefine how campaigns, organizations and organizers can engage volunteers.

  • Incorporate diverse stakeholder requirements — on issues like branding and data management — into elegant and extensible product solutions.

  • Manage the ideation, creation, launch and roll-out of the products you design — including measuring their success. 

  • Partner with our Growth and Design teams to run experiments and test prototypes.

  • Be a partner in ideation and execution of product design initiatives.

You:

  • Have at least 4 to 8 years of experience in product management, ideally in startups where you’ve seen things scale (and break); title and compensation commensurate with experience.

  • Are comfortable crafting product strategy from a 30,000-foot view one day, and drilling closely down to tactical execution the next.

  • Ideally, have experience working with enterprise clients, and an intuition for when to push back, what to productize vs. customize, and how to prioritize a roadmap between client-driven and core work.

  • Bring strong product intuition and know how to balance the creative with the practical.

  • Can identify needs and know when to build a product or when to buy a product to solve those needs.

  • Are obsessed with delivering an amazing end-user experience.

  • Care deeply about rallying ordinary people for progressive causes. We’re a mission-driven company, and everything we do is guided by political impact. At the end of the day, we’re here to help progressive organizations and campaigns to organize and win. 

This position is based in New York City, so you should be here or able to relocate.
