The Challenge:

We’re looking for a Growth Product Manager to work collaboratively with the team and make compelling customer experiences across web and mobile that help people learn to dance from anywhere in the world. 

As Growth Product Manager, you will have the opportunity to work on cross functional teams, own your roadmap, and build software product experiences that delight and engage customers. Your focus will be on growth and acquisition initiatives in the short term as we seek to rapidly expand our user base. However, your focus may shift and expand as new opportunities arise (we are a startup, after-all).

The ability to create product experiences that help consumers effortlessly and painlessly access and learn dance is critical. Our members are dancers who come from a wide range of skill level, locale, and experience. However, they share the common goal of learning how to dance.

  5. Build experiences customers love - Ensure that consumer experiences are delighting users and generating organic growth through word of mouth. You will serve as a voice for our users, ensuring that we meet their high standards for engaging experience and quality.

  2. Doer - Not afraid to roll up their sleeves and wade through the muck to uncover the right answers.

  4. Systems Thinker - You can reason from First Principles to parse signals from noise, extrapolate the underlying pattern, identify the sensitive inputs & weightings and generalize to other contexts.
  5. Foresight - You are able to balance the needs of the present without jeopardizing or constraining optionality in the future. You can play out the multi-round consequences of available paths or tactics, take the long-term view and make tradeoffs.
