    This company’s mission is to replace entire communication stacks with a single app. Today, a startup might use Slack for assigning tasks, WhatsApp for team collaboration, and Discord for casual chatting. Tomorrow they can do it all through our platform.

    We’re looking for a seasoned product manager who understands that an app like this lives or dies on user relationships. You’ll be responsible for developing a product roadmap that maximizes user happiness, wins loyal repeat customers, and incorporates user stories into its UX. The ideal candidate has a proven history of building consensus between teams, communicating with end users of all stripes, and maintaining product-market fit as a startup scales.

    If you know that your next project is going to be in a cutting-edge space, building this all-in-one messaging app is your ideal opportunity. As an experienced engineering product manager, you could have an outsized impact on software that solves a universal problem.

    No matter where your career has taken you, you’ll find this startup’s culture refreshing and rewarding: big enough to have staying power, but small enough to act nimbly. We expect a lot of applicants, so contact us today.
