Program Manager

Phoenix, AZ
Operations – Program Management
Who are we looking for?

Are you passionate about solving complex business and technical problems through active listening, challenging assumptions and forecasting clear understanding? If complex problem solving is your bread and butter and you love the collaborative, dynamic journey of getting a new startup to market, then this empowering role is for you.

You’ve built a product/service from end to end, so you know firsthand what it takes to guide our venture founders. That means you have a background with product management, user experience (UX/UI), lean startup, product design, product development, user acquisition, and software startups. As you’ll be working very closely with founders, partners, team members and investors, experience in communication will be critical to success for this fulfilling role.

If helping ventures go from idea-to seed-ready with an innovative team of startup builders excites you, you might be next in line to become a Coplexer.

    • Manage iterative product releases and experiments.
    • Collect, curate and promote ideas into features that will achieve key objectives for the business.
    • Quickly understand the strategic business goals of a startup idea; logically translate those into tactical steps and prioritize them to bring a product to market as efficiently as possible.

    • Work with team to define the features and requirements necessary for each product release and experiment.
    • Stay on top of issues and tasks that can inhibit internal and external teams momentum and ensure optimal velocity.
