Director, Product Management, Financial Solutions

Shopify has redefined commerce, raising the standard for how businesses of all sizes operate, market, and sell their products and services. With over 600,000 merchants in more than 175 different countries, powered by the most innovative platform on the market, we continue to grow rapidly while constantly looking for new ways to impact and disrupt markets.

We’re looking for a Director of Product Management to drive the strategy and execution of our financial products team. As our merchants grow, so does the complexity of their financial needs. Your team’s mission is to combat this complexity by providing them with simple, timely and cost-effective financial solutions that allow them to focus their energy on running their business, not their bank account.

You'll be leading a team of talented, driven, and highly collaborative people, building products in the payments, lending and fraud management space. Your team includes those who have founded companies, developed successful products from scratch, and have established track records of shipping great products that have a huge impact.  

You'll need to have:

    • At least 5+ years of hands-on experience leading the end-to-end creation and development of products at a leading or fast-growing technology company; those who have recognized market opportunities and customer needs - and turned them into products that have delighted real users.
    • Leadership skills building and managing large cross-functional teams, taking a player-coach approach to leading
    • An entrepreneurial mindset -- roll up your sleeves, thrive in chaos, and get shit done
    • A genuine excitement for solving customer problems
    • A strong sense of empathy with the user and use data to inform product decisions
    • An approach that defaults to action and helps your team do the same
    • Excellent communication skills
    • Experience working with different partners across multiple disciplines

It would be great if you had experience:

    • Founding and running your own company
    • Working with partners from both a product and business perspective
    • With any of the following fields: payments, lending, fraud detection, or other financial services
    • Working in regulated industries

You'll get to do things like:

    • Guide product teams to plan, execute and drive product strategy for Financial Solutions at Shopify
    • Work collaboratively with UX and engineering teams on a day to day basis to drive results
    • Continue to hire and nurture top talent for the product team
    • Collaborate with designers, developers, marketers, and customers to build products that are used by hundreds of thousands of merchants and millions of buyers
