Are you an obsessively user-focused product manager (or startup founder) who loves working with deeply technical products in a high stakes environment?

As the PM at NEAR, you are responsible for the key developer-facing suite of products which make up our platform.  This includes the core protocol, developer tools (eg Explorer, Studio), consumer tools (eg Wallet) and educational support behind them.  It requires identifying users and use cases for the platform and ensuring that the platform meets their needs as we move through development of TestNet to MainNet.  You will also support the developer partners who create their own applications atop the platform to ensure they are successful in the market.

This is a crucial role which has a major impact on the future of the platform.  It will require you to live and breathe customer development and manage a highly technical roadmap. You will need to be able to thrive in an environment of high uncertainty and autonomy while juggling a number of products to be successful.

 

Get to Know NEAR

NEAR is a scalable blockchain and smart contract platform designed to provide the performance and user experience necessary to bridge the gap to mainstream adoption.  Unlike other next generation blockchains, this network’s performance both scales with the total number of nodes and allows those nodes to be run on low-end devices like mobile phones, bringing potentially billions of them into the network and providing a direct path to end users.
