Senior Product Manager

Toronto, Ontario
Product – Product Management /
Full-time /
Our mission is to increase the success rate of small businesses. Traditional banking has been a growth limiter rather than a growth enabler for business owners, and we’re changing that. Relay is the all-in-one, collaborative money management platform. We’re building for employer SMBs and their finance function, internal and external, and are focused on delivering a human-centric customer experience. Ultimately, we help SMBs be ‘on the money'.

Here at Relay, our Product Team is responsible for shaping our small business banking platform; we dive deep into the problems and pain points of our customers to marry their needs with those of our business and the capabilities of technology. 

We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to play a key part in building not only the product but someone who will be a vital part of problem solving for our customers. You will identify and scope the highest priority issues to tackle and work with our designers and engineers to ideate, design and deliver exceptional product experiences. At Relay, we are a hybrid environment and we choose to collaborate in the office twice a week.

What You'll Be Doing

    • Contribute to the planning, development, and launch of new initiatives
    • Frequently interview our customers 1-on-1 to deeply understand their needs and their pain points, using the learnings to identifying product opportunities
    • Foster strong collaboration among cross-functional teams including engineering, design, marketing, sales, and customer support 
    • Leverage data to inform product decisions. Establish clear success metrics and use them to guide product development to measure success
    • Analyze product and business data to identify opportunities and prioritize features
    • Provide feedback on design and user experience, ensuring every product is a delightful experience for our users
    • Own a roadmap with your team of engineers to ensure we deliver successfully against goals. Help hold the team accountable to outcomes and ensure a high bar for product delivery

    • You have a strong bias to action. We’re a fast-paced environment and we value quick decision making and iteration to maximize learnings
    • You live in Toronto, the GTA, or are open to relocate. We work in the office two days a week to optimize for collaboration
    • You’re a maker and a builder; show us things you've written, designed or ideally, built
