About the role

Who we are

At Emi Labs (Y Combinator 2019) we are building the next generation technology infrastructure to increase Frontline Workers' access to professional opportunities. We currently offer a SaaS recruitment platform powered by A.I. that helps companies engage with Candidates through chat applications to drive faster and more efficient hiring processes.

We save Recruiters a huge amount of time by automating tasks such as screening, validating skills, scheduling interviews and collecting documents, enabling them to focus only on qualified candidates. This helps them hire the best Candidates for their roles, while at the same time giving a fair opportunity, and a great recruiting experience, to all Candidates alike.

What you'll be doing

You will become one of the first Product Managers at Emi Labs, drive a huge amount of impact through our Product, and grow within a high growth company. You will be defining product strategy, developing product requirements, and overseeing execution for some of the highest priority initiatives that will build the next generation infrastructure for Frontline Workers worldwide.

Product development is an extremely collaborative effort between Engineering, Data Science and customer-facing teams. This role will provide the opportunity to develop the strategy for several of Emi Lab's core Solutions, and get feedback on your plans directly from Emi’s leadership team. We’re looking for curious and high-energy product thinkers & leaders who can develop and grow the product Emi Labs needs to achieve its mission.

You're main responsibilities

  • Define our product strategy for several of our core Platform Solutions.
  • Develop requirements to build new product on our Roadmap.
  • Lead cross-functional teams to execute high-impact product initiatives.
  • Optimize existing features to drive product success for our Customers.
  • Make thoughtful trade-offs among a diverse set of teams and priorities.
  • Continually perform user research to collect insights on our user experience and value proposition.
  • Own product KPIs and perform impact evaluations on the initiatives you lead.

What we're looking for

  • At least 2 years of Product Management experience, managing technical software products from kick-off to ship.
  • Experience leading products that require coordination of many stakeholders and cross-functional teams.
  • Persistence and a whatever-it-takes approach to ensure that your product and team are successful.
  • Extreme curiosity, a bias for action, and appetite for learning and growth.
  • Creative problem solving: thinks big, starts small, grows fast.
  • Data-driven and rational approach to making decisions.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, both in Spanish and English.
  • Empathy and a willingness to help others across the company.
  • Ability to work in a high-growth environment and adapt to changing scenarios and uncertainty.
