Job Description

The Role: Product Manager

The Product Manager is responsible for the product planning and execution throughout the Product Lifecycle, including gathering and prioritizing product and customer requirements, defining the product vision, and working closely with engineering, sales, marketing, and support to ensure revenue and customer satisfaction goals are met. The Product Manager’s job also includes ensuring that the product supports the company’s overall strategy and goals.

The Product Manager understands and improves end-to-end User Experience for FTF internal and external borrower and investor-facing platform. This is a high-visibility, high-impact, and rewarding position, at the heart of a dynamic, innovative fintech company.

The Product Manager:

  • owns our product strategy for FTF’s loan origination and servicing technology platform
  • helps translate business needs into engineering scope
  • triages and prioritizes business support needs with engineering, and
  • considers trade-offs that lead to the best outcome for the company.

What you will do:

You’ll work directly with stakeholders in engineering, product, marketing, operations, and other teams to execute on both strategic, forward-looking projects as well as day-to-day platform operations support. You’ll play an important role in shaping FTF product strategy, roadmap, and managing the backlog accordingly.

You will also:

  • Build strong cross-functional relationships and coordinate across teams.
  • Own the entire product cycle: from ideation and requirements gathering to research and design to development pitching, execution, and testing.
  • Translate business needs into product capabilities and provide guidance to engineering on goals and milestones.
  • Mindfully prioritize conflicting opinions and goals based upon business needs and communicate effectively with stakeholders to build alignment.
  • Empathize with and support customers and internal users and translate their needs into specific actionable features, and collaboratively navigate trade-offs with engineering.
  • Use creative problem solving to quickly resolve issues and find non-technical ways to help the team solve problems.
  • Identify new strategic product opportunities that will help us stay on the end of innovation and integration and co-lead execution on those opportunities.

Who you are:

You thrive on generating new ways to solve old problems; you are committed to innovation and at FTF you’ll have the opportunity, support, and resources to bring it to life. You have 3-5 years of experience as a product manager solution consumer and/or enterprise products in a continuous delivery environment driven by scrum process and agile principles. 

You exhibit intellectual curiosity and strong problem-solving skills, especially across non-technical teams. You thrive in high growth, evolving (and sometimes ambiguous) environment, have a predisposition toward action, and act entrepreneurially to help the organization drive the business forward. You are comfortable managing multiple work streams simultaneously. You practice and prioritize empathy and customer-centrism, you are passionate about continuous discovery, understanding and interpreting customers’ needs versus wants, understanding short-term wins and long-term strategy, and realizing product vision. 

You possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and you have an entrepreneurial mindset. You employ highly collaboration, build relationships, and are comfortable communicating with stakeholders at every level. Your workplace ego is low, and you are excited to work across various functions to help move the business forward.

Experience:

  • 3-5 years experience as a Product Manager
  • Demonstrated success defining and launching excellent products
  • Preferred 3-5 years of experience in the Financial Services market
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Bachelor’s degree (MBA preferred)
  • General understanding UI/UX principles of creating sticky customer-facing products  
  • Excellent teamwork skills
