The role

As Director of Product you will own product vision and road map, establish goals and strategy, and drive execution across all Business Units within Paradigm.

You will work directly with the CEO and other key stakeholders to set an org-wide product vision, roadmap and strategy, and partner with the Engineering team to follow through on delivery. As part of your role, you should be able to think strategically and clearly articulate a compelling strategy that incorporates a strong understanding of who our customers are, what success metrics look like as well as lay out a clear thesis on how we differentiate ourselves as a product and company.

As Director, you are empowered to grow the product organization by recruiting experienced PMs and to implement processes to ensure the PM function runs efficiently. This includes maintaining a launch calendar, best practices for writing product proposals, frameworks for career development and progression and establishing clear guidelines for navigating cross-functional tradeoffs.

This is an extremely fast-paced environment with a high degree of ambiguity that will force you to grow both personally and professionally.
