About the right team member:

You are a talented and focused product leader. You will own our prospective customer product journey, particularly on mobile, including our discovery experience, sign up funnels, first funding flows, and marketing platforms. Betterment’s mission is to empower people to do what’s best for their money so that they can live better, and you’ll be responsible for bringing that to our potential customers and making a connection with them that puts them on a path to financial success.

You are a natural collaborator who makes things happen by knowing how, and when, to engage teams in the pursuit of success. You love to roll up your sleeves and explain complex requirements to engineers, data analysts, and designers, and can also easily zoom out to focus on product strategy and roadmap with your business stakeholders. You are analytical by nature, experienced in A/B testing, and believe in iterating your way to breakthrough customer experiences.

You lead with openness, trust, and focus. You rapidly build rapport with people and teams and are respected by peers as a strong and honest partner. You have a working knowledge of growth fundamentals and are passionate about building a customer-centric business that will change the space forever.

At Betterment you will get to:

  • Drive strategy, planning, and execution for customer growth initiatives, particularly on mobile. This includes new efforts, enhancements, and maintenance of existing features.
  • Develop a point of view on how customer growth tactics on Betterment’s mobile apps can, and should, differ from those on mobile and desktop web.
  • Build experiences, in partnership with product analytics, design, and engineering teams, that effectively grow Betterment’s funded customer base.
  • Collaborate with growth marketing to ensure seamlessness between a prospective customer’s on- and off-product experiences.
  • Obsess over the health of your product; develop a deep level of user empathy through product data, competitive analysis, user research, and experimentation.
  • Have a direct impact on key business results every day.

You will be effective if you have:

  • 6+ years of product management experience in a consumer technology company, ideally in a growth role.
  • Proven success launching game-changing user experiences in a mobile app.
  • Experience driving conversion for a highly considered product or service; one that requires a compelling brand story, a detailed understanding of the customer journey, and a deep empathy for the user.
  • A passion for A/B testing, funnel optimization, and all things relating to the growth of a highly considered product.
  • Demonstrated success at communicating, prioritizing, and balancing needs cross-functionally.
  • Experience collaborating with marketing to drive customer growth.
  • Strong analytical abilities with a passion for data-driven decision making.
  • Experience as a values-based leader who can build and maintain a culture of empowerment, ownership, and accountability.

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience working closely with data science and/or engineering teams.
  • A solid understanding of investing and financial advisory products.
  • Influence over paid media channels and a track record of optimizing associated experiences.
  • Experience working in a regulated environment.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.

  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes

Reasonable Accommodation Notice

Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
