  • Partner with Product, Design, Research, Engineering, Business Operations, Finance, Business Development, Sales, Trust and Safety, Customer Support
  • Be the voice of the customer by leading user research with OfferUp buyers and sellers, adapting and modifying the product and business requirements based on quantitative and qualitative feedback

You’ll thrive in this role if you are:

  • Driven self-starter that thrives in a fast-paced environment, juggling multiple, competing priorities to create positive outcomes
  • Possess an ability to quickly adapt to change and motivational skills to help the team through the change
  • A big picture thinker and can handle ambiguous, unstructured situations with the ambition to roll up your sleeves and dive deep to figure it out
  • Pragmatic when approaching problem solving by balancing business, experience, and technical requirements
  • A detail-oriented leader with sound judgement and ability to break down complex problems and find simple, elegant solutions
  • Excellent with written and verbal communication skills, including ability to communicate effectively with non-technical and technical audiences across all levels of the organization

What you’ve done:

  • 7+ years hands-on product management or equivalent experience building and delivering B2C or B2B products within a high-performance tech company
