Product Manager - Growth

Los Angeles, California
Full Time
If you ever found yourself paying $40 for a cup of coffee (and you’re not insane) then you’re already familiar with the $33B problem we’re trying to solve - overdrafts (

To fight against that, Dave helps you budget for your upcoming expenses and lets you advance a portion of your paycheck with no interest.  Instead of charging interest or predatory fees, Dave lets users decide what is fair to pay. We also plant a tree for every % tip.

We are choosing to build a quality team vs a large team. You will be a formative part of our company culture moving forward. To that point, we want someone that can take ownership of a project from beginning to end and can do it on their own. We’ll be there to support you but not hold your hand.

We are started by a 4X entrepreneur ($85mm exit) and are backed by investors like Mark Cuban, SV Angel, The Chernin Group, David Friedberg, The Kraft Group, SRI, Diplo and more.

Sure, we’ve checked all the boxes you’d expect from a fast-moving startup, but the best thing we can offer you is a supportive environment for learning and opportunities for personal/professional growth.

Our team is looking for a Growth Product Manager who is highly analytical, organized and has experience shipping products in a fast-paced environment.

You’ll help us expand our product reach by:
• Optimizing onboarding flows
• Opening new acquisition channels
• Increasing the efficacy of our paid acquisition strategies
• Reducing churn
• Increasing engagement/retention

Executing on this will require strong qualitative and quantitative research abilities, with a creative mindset and holistic approach to product management. You’ll work iteratively to ship and test features, partnering closely with research, data, design and engineering to help improve our members’ relationship with money.

Operationally, you will effectively coordinate between our Chief Product Officer and Director of Growth.

• Communicate, coordinate and work closely with Dave’s founders and engineering/growth teams to deliver products from idea phase to being in our members’ hands.

• Own the product development lifecycle in a cross-functional team with a prioritized roadmap, clear milestones, and short iteration cycles 

• Stay in touch with users to understand what they love or don’t love as our product evolves.

• Deeply understand the needs and behaviors of our users, and generate actionable insights through qualitative and quantitative research to drive product strategy

• Articulate user stories and business parameters, and identify success metrics for new products on an iterative basis

• Ask the right questions both to our team members and our customers to gain a strong understanding of Dave and our customer experience.

• Use Amplitude, Mode Analytics, and cohort data to develop actionable insights for growth, user engagement, and retention.

• Foster working relationships with engineering to understand our development process and come up with ideas on how to improve it.

• Own the product development lifecycle in a cross-functional team with a prioritized roadmap, clear milestones, and short iteration cycles 

• Develop launch plans by defining milestones and roadmap for your team, scoping/prioritizing features, coordinating timing with other business activities, managing backlogs, and estimating work. 

• Define and maintain key KPIs to monitor to maximize customer satisfaction, growth and revenue.


    • 3+ years of prior experience delivering consumer apps, technology and services – shipping products to millions of users
    • Prior experience at a high-growth startup where you helped grow, retain, and engage users at scale.
    • Prior experience optimizing paid acquisition channels. 
    • A Strong technical background and experience working directly with engineers, with a firm grasp on the technical details driving the product.
    • Understanding of UI/UX best practices, including when to follow patterns and when to push boundaries
