The Role

As a Director of Product Management, you will own the LTSE Equity roadmap, grow our product management team and steward the product management discipline. LTSE Equity is our flagship product for equity management that helps startups enforce better long-term corporate principles. This job is ideal for people who deeply care about fairer business practices and want to partner with startups who are leading the way.

You will work with our internal teams, external resources and our customers to deliver key business objectives by identifying and prioritizing our near and long-term roadmap and the vision of our flagship product. You will be responsible for owning the product backlog and managing the priorities within each release cycle and as your team scales, managing this discipline across the org. This role also requires taking business insights and strategy, technology dependencies, operational challenges and customer feedback into an actionable product roadmap that can be executed within a well considered timeframe and budget.

We are in a heavy build and investment phase, so in this cross-functional role, you must feel comfortable questioning assumptions and reframing requests to ensure we are solving the right problems. You should be highly creative and remain informed of the competitive landscape including specific competitive products, feature functionality, strengths, weaknesses and industry trends, which will be key to your success and ability to properly align strategy.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • At least 12 years of experience as a product management leader or related experience.
  • At least 3 years of people management experience.
  • Previous experience owning a core product roadmap.
  • Experience partnering with subject matter experts to codify industry practices, laws, and regulations.

You are:

  • Willing to take on new initiatives.
  • Comfortable independently creating and maintaining processes.
  • Driven by curiosity to generate new approaches and improve existing processes.
  • Highly organized, and an expert communicator.
  • Able to thrive in a cross-functional setting.

You will:

  • Direct multiple and parallel core product initiatives with the focus on enhancing the core equity management capability and building capabilities that scale with our customers’ needs. This may include work on growth, partnerships, compliance, user experience, user engagement and long term vision.
  • Lead product management team, develop product management discipline and career growth goals.
  • Stay up to date on competitive landscape and determine differentiation angles.
  • Collaborate with business leadership and the customer-facing team to understand customer pain-points and deal breakers.
  • Work directly with our customers and industry experts to build subject matter expertise to inform product decisions, solving the pains and challenges of a startup founder.
  • Ownership over product roadmap, organizing and prioritizing roadmap backlog and timeline based on business requirements, near/long-term goals and customer feedback.
  • Partner with design and engineering to create build-ready feature/tool specifications and requirements documentation.
  • Own and report on key metrics related to product engagement, funnel completion, roadmap, user feedback and ongoing initiatives.

Nice to have:

  • Experience with startup financing or equity management is a major bonus.

Benefits Include:

  • People. Work in a mission-based company with skilled, committed, and supportive teammates who share your desire to create a new kind of public market, and have a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Excellent medical, dental and vision benefits.
  • A commitment to a sustainable work environment, including an unlimited vacation policy that requires team members to take a minimum of three weeks vacation per year.
  • 401k
  • Cell phone reimbursement.
  • Computer and home office setup.
  • We feel passionate about equal pay for equal work, and transparency in compensation is one vehicle to achieve that. Total compensation for this role is market competitive, including a base salary between $180,000 - $193,500, as well as company stock options.

LTSE is committed to championing the inclusion of women and underrepresented employees at the earliest stages of the company’s life. We believe that inclusion is a team effort, and every team member is expected to participate in building a welcoming and representative culture.
