About the company

Sciencebase’s mission is to create a database solution that gives non-academics the ability to search and discover the best researchers in any given field, level of expertise, institution, h-index, and a variety of other information. 

This central database will remove hours of manual searching while also providing all relevant information including a peer recommendation system that offers validity to rankings and search results.

We have just received funding and are looking to hire our initial team of engineers and product managers to help us build out a prototype.

About the role

This is the job for you if you are fast on your feet, an independent and self-motivated learner, and extremely excited about shaping products from the ground up. 

As our founding Product Manager, you are an experienced professional who will own the product development processes including defining problems, solutions, and requirements, setting deadlines, and communicating the vision, narrative, and milestones to the team members and other stakeholders. This role reports to the fractional CTO Lisa.

As one of our first hires, you’ll be a huge contributor to setting the tone and culture for the Montreal office (remote, for now). We love empathy and humility in all our team members!

  • Articulate product vision, strategy, roadmaps and priorities to the team members and other stakeholders.
  • Identify and prioritize the most important product questions that need to be answered, in collaboration with the product teams.
  • Implement and lead appropriate product development processes in collaboration with other product team members.
  • Lead and contribute in design and product requirements processes.
  • Be a champion for the users.

Some extra stuff we love:

  • Have a combined 4+ years of professional experience in product design and/or UX research (and/or content strategy, development, or other adjacent fields);
  • Have product management experience in the field of data science
  • Are familiar with tools and processes for integrating test data (e.g. from analytics, A/B testing) into designs;
  • Have experience working closely with developers on building component libraries and other tools
  • Can demonstrate an ability to consider the technical complexity and feasibility of different designs across web and mobile platforms;
  • Are able to work directly with customers and users, gathering business needs and feedback on your designs;
  • Are able to advocate for users as well as consider the ways flaws in a design might be abused;
  • Understand the importance of clear, consistent and strategic language in creating user experiences;
  • Have excellent written English communication skills;
  • Have a proven track record of mentorship (if you're more senior).
