Group Product Manager

Instawork is looking for a thoughtful, talented, and data driven Group Product Manager to join our
growing team, shape our product, and ship products that our customers love.

Instawork creates economic opportunity for small businesses and hourly workers by connecting
them for a variety of employment opportunities. Our on-demand staffing app allows warehouse,
distribution, and other supply chain employers to connect with local skilled pros looking to take on
additional shifts. In addition to being a two-sided marketplace, the online-to-offline nature of our
product presents a unique set of product challenges. We aren't just trying to get people to click more
buttons - we're connecting people in physical space and managing around all the unpredictability
and unique social dynamics of hourly labor. Your work will help warehouse and hospitality
professionals gain additional skills, earn extra income, and help our partners to run their businesses
more efficiently.

We’ve been fortunate to be funded by some of the greatest investors in Silicon Valley: Benchmark
(Bill Gurley), GV (formerly Google Ventures), Spark Capital, Y Combinator, SV Angel Crunchfund,
Steve Chen (co-founder of YouTube), Mike Vernal (VP of Product at Facebook), among many more.
This cross functional role will be part of Instawork’s product team in India and will work closely with
the entire organization - set product strategy with the executive team, grow and lead a team of
product managers and designers, talk to customers to understand their problems, build and rollout
features with design and engineering, and work directly with operations and sales teams to scale the
business.

    • Partner with design, engineering, sales and operations to scope and build features that solve user problems
    • Work directly with customers to understand the efficacy of our current product and share the context with the company
    • Lead as well as mentor product managers and designers while also acting as a peer to them to drive an independent lane of product work
    • As and when required, manage a product budget - including team building, hiring, product tools and subscriptions

The Ideal Candidate:

    • Has 8+ years of overall experience with at least 6 years as a product manager in internet/e-commerce industry

About Instawork:
Instawork's goal is to be the essential hiring engine for small to medium-sized businesses across
the globe. Our first step toward this goal is to become the "the Uber of Staffing” as our technology
enables us to service the needs of the massive gig economy.

We are well positioned in the warehouse and hospitality space (think large ecommerce companies,
third party logistic providers, catering companies, multi-location restaurants,event venues, golf
courses, etc) and looking to quickly expand our reach across the country and then the globe. Staffing
is by far the biggest struggle the industry faces for both the business and the worker. The Light
Industrial and Hospitality staffing industry is a combined $100+ billion dollar market opportunity that
is primed for disruption. This presents a unique opportunity for technology and innovation to replace
the outdated job boards or help wanted signs in the window.

We are making a difference for thousands of businesses in multiple markets and currently looking
for top-notch talent that want to change the way brick & mortar and large event venues utilize
on-demand talent to fill staffing gaps. Essentially we are enabling gig workers to spend their extra
time to make extra money to close the gap on their financial needs.

We have offices in San Francisco and Bangalore, along with satellite offices in various parts of the
US. You can find out more about us and our values at ​
