  • Maintain the product roadmap, requirements, and designs, collaborating with the development team on prioritization

  • Monitor and analyze product performance against requirements/success metrics

Collaboration With the Design Team

  • Quickly build wireframes related to changes/new features in the product for the design teams to build prototypes out of.
  • Regularly review and provide constructive feedback on design prototypes, ensuring they meet the product's vision, goals, and user needs

Lead product vision strategy & execution

About the interview

At Crux, we are looking for individuals who enjoy iterating & shipping quickly, are passionate about solving hard problems and are eager to learn. Someone who demonstrates a strong sense of ownership and autonomy.

Round 1: Initial Screening Round This stage is a more informal call to get to know more about the role, and for you to evaluate whether it’s a good fit for you. We are looking for people with a strong interest in startups and the motivation to help them; this is usually exhibited by past experience working at or starting one yourself. Lastly, the conversation will also cover some light discussion about your past projects.

Round 2/3: Product-Thinking Rounds This stage will be a more technical deep dive where you shall be given a problem statement on-spot or in advance. This problem statement will most probably be something our team is facing as we speak so you may be expected to try your hands on the product and come up with practical solutions.

Round 3/4: Culture Fit For the “fit” portion, we are again looking for ownership and autonomy, but we also dig deeper into communication. This is evaluated throughout the process -- in how you communicate your approach, solutions, and overall thinking.

Each interview is 1 hour long, with 45 minutes allocated for the technical deep-dive, and 15 minutes for general Q&A.
