Product Manager


Product Manager


gdR is recruiting a Product Manager for a Toronto-based startup that was acquired by one of North America’s largest media and marketing companies to represent the core of their digital strategy & growth. The product has 13M users and has seen 100% YoY growth with significant revenues. They are located in downtown Toronto in a freshly renovated startup office with all the startup perks.


About the Company:

- Growing team of 65+ employees.

- 100% YoY growth with significant revenue.

- Backing by large US marketing and media companies.

- Product has a real impact on families, saving 13M users money every day.

- Downtown Toronto on Yonge TTC.


Why Join?

As one of the first few people on the product team (you’ll be reporting into the VP Product), you’ll have the opportunity to shape the future and scale the product that has a user base of millions.


You’re the ideal Product Manager if you have:

- 2-7+ years of product management experience. This is not a super senior product role, but is a great position for someone who is one level below a director or Sr. Product Manager.

- Either B2B or B2C software product management experience is required. Enterprise-only product experience (e.g, banks, telco, insurance) will NOT be considered.

- Industry experience is flexible. Ideally candidates will have consumer, B2B SaaS or mobile app product management experience.

- Experience in an Agile or other iterative process environment authoring user stores, contributing to UX and working closely with developers is required.

- Experience with a product management framework is a bonus, such as Pragmatic Marketing.

- CS or Engineering degree is preferred. Without it, you’ll need to demonstrate you can be a real contributor in working with the dev team on technical topics.    


As the Product Manager here’s how you’ll make an impact:

- Define the product roadmap, market sensing, customer & user interactions, requirements through gathering and validation, leadership & evangelism.

- Collaborate with UX designers & development teams as part of the Agile process, creating user stories, prioritizing, defining release plans, contributing to architecture, etc.
