ABOUT SWEETEN

Join Sweeten, a fast growing, award-winning tech company founded in New York City and founded by trained architects in 2011. We're a team of super ambitious and fun people who are fascinated by construction, design, and tech—and we're building the go-to marketplace for transformative renovations.

Sweeten’s mission is to build a better balanced future by:

  • Bringing all homeowners visions of home and family to life through quality renovations.
  • Giving equitable access to job opportunities for women and minority general contractors.
  • Hiring and growing the best, most diverse team.

 

ABOUT THE ROLE

We are currently seeking a Product Manager to join our Product team to help bring our ambitious roadmap to life as we continue on our path of creating a category defining brand. The ideal candidate has experience working on two-sided marketplace platforms.

Your role is to:

  • Work closely with the Director of Product Development, VP of Product and senior product designers to help make our vision a reality – from a zoomed out perspective of what the business needs all the way down to the nitty gritty feature set specs.
  • Own major initiatives on the product roadmap; meet with key stakeholders, gather requirements, craft solutions, and work with engineering to see them through to launch.
  • Maintain a level of quality, consistency, and performance on our product releases – release signoff from a functionality point of view goes through you on your initiatives.
  • Collaborate with team members across the organization on platform improvements and/or new product development initiatives.
  • Optimize existing products through data and research.
  • Be awesome.

You are someone who:

  • Is excited to play a major role in helping transform and grow a product – our goal is to create a magical experience for our users.
  • Gets stuff done. You know how to effectively prioritize and juggle multiple initiatives.
  • Is good at communicating.
  • Thinks strategically.
  • Can handle critical feedback.
  • Does not get overwhelmed working to a deadline.
  • Is a self-starter, but loves to collaborate and brainstorm ideas with others when needed.
  • Focuses on the details. You probably even hate the phrase ‘close enough’.  

You ideally have:

  • 5-7 years of product management experience, preferably on a platform used by millions of people.

To apply, please submit:

  • Your resume
  • A brief statement introducing yourself and what makes the Sweeten opportunity particularly interesting to you.
  • A website or app that you find inspiring from an overall design and user experience point of view (this is something that you did not work on). We want to understand the kind of product experience you find amazing.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
