Head of Product
Product & Design /
We’re on a mission to build solutions for the next generation of commerce. Ultimately we enable developers and platforms to make commerce seamless by connecting them to millions of merchants and billions of products with a single API.
Carted will power commerce experiences anywhere on the internet, allowing developers and content creators to build a direct checkout of any product from any merchant via any content on the web.
As Carted’s first Product hire you will play a critical role in owning the strategy, roadmap and execution of our product and get us ready for launch.
You'll be responsible for:
- Working closely with the Engineering team to prioritise, roadmap and scope work. You’ll make sure everyone is brought along the journey of product discovery and support the daily decisions required to build great products efficiently at scale.
- Think strategically through customer needs, business opportunities and technical challenges when creating the roadmap.
- Translating a high-level vision into an MVP, and series of incremental deliveries.
- Collaborate with the team, anticipating and understanding requirements and guiding the team on translating these into well-defined user stories.
- Lead discovery work to validate new ideas and ensure we are building the right things.
WHAT EXCITES US
As we grow, you’ll be able to demonstrate leadership by adding to and building out the Carted product team including implementing the product framework, documentation and cadence of the department through to being an ambassador for our products.
Strong product management experience preferably with commerce / fintech products. You have experience owning a product roadmap and executing against it. You’ve been responsible for the entire product life cycle from gathering requirements to design, development and release. You've experienced the ups and downs of shipping brand new product features, learning from customer feedback and iterating on your strategy.
You’re an owner. We are excited about the things we’re building and we love people who see themselves as the executor that can make things happen.
Strong eye for detail. As the person who translates our product vision into actionable stories for our engineering team, you’re a stickler for detail, and as a result your documentation is second to none. Nothing gets past you.
Clear communication. We need to both educate and build our vision of the future. Communication is your thing, alongside product, so you’re not only technically capable, but have very strong communication skills.
Understanding of engineering best practice. We’re not expecting you to write the code, but we do expect you to understand the reasoning behind technical decisions, and be comfortable with those.
Experience in early stage startups and all that comes with the space. We’re running fast and we need someone who can keep up with the pace and have tenacity and willingness to go the distance to get something done.
