About Fat Llama

What if owning things was no longer important? What if expensive, niche items could be available to you in seconds? And what if you could generate an extra income from your own belongings? At Fat Llama, we're already bringing about that future. We believe that one day, owning those things we only occasionally need will be as ridiculous as buying a house every time you want to go on holiday.

Our users enjoy on-demand access to anything from high-end cameras to drones to campervans. As a result, they're doing, creating and achieving incredible things every day. Income from rentals is changing the lives of many of our lenders, too - whether it's paying their rent or allowing them to drop corporate jobs and focus on passion projects.

Last year we went through Y Combinator and announced a $10M raise from amazing investors. Now, we are en route for our impending Series B, so we are building the dream team to lead the way through this pivotal stage of growth and expansion. Join the herd!

The Role

Fat Llama is at a pivotal point in it's growth as we gear up to our Series B, so we are looking for a product leader to partner with our C-team to guide our development through the next stage of growth. Our VP of Product will play a key part in this process, communicating our product strategy to investors and thinking about the impact that a new round of funding will have on scaling our product and moving it to new markets.

We're looking for someone to move the needle on our product offering. For Fat Llama, this means understanding the value of finding the elusive product market-fit, developing a commercial product strategy, focusing on the essentials of user delight, and respecting the need for building to scale.

Our VP of Product will have high levels of autonomy to define strategy and drive product initiatives, own the product roadmap across our web and mobile, and the opportunity to build and develop a world class product team.
