ABOUT TASKRABBIT

TaskRabbit is on a mission to empower people to do what they love. We're the pioneers of “service networking” — it's like social networking, except instead of tagging embarrassing photos of each other, arguing about politics, or putting a baby photo where a profile snapshot should be, our members help each other save time and earn some money.
 
We’ve already raised more than $36 million through investors including Baseline Ventures, First Round Capital, FLOODGATE FUND, LightSpeed Venture Partners, Founders Fund and Shasta Ventures. We’re building a peer-to-peer marketplace that safely and reliably connects neighbors to get things done through the melding of social, location-based, and mobile technologies.
 
We're getting down and/or dirty with social graph analysis and analytics-driven optimization, with an eye toward user experience that's both pleasant and frictionless.
 
We’re a mission-driven business and our culture is fast-paced. We’re looking for talented, entrepreneurially minded people who believe in moving the economy to a more collaborative place — and having a ton of fun while they’re at it.

ABOUT THE ROLE

As a Product Manager, you will drive the growth and evolution of TaskRabbit through product innovation.  You will be responsible for the creation of new features from inception through development, and for measuring and improving the quality and efficacy of your product area.  We practice agile development, so you will partner with a user experience designer and an engineering scrum team to rapidly improve the product while focusing on the overarching objectives and vision.  

We are looking for a resourceful and entrepreneurial individual who can quickly break down problems, recognize opportunities, and lead a team to creative and effective solutions.  Most importantly, we are looking for a team member who loves TaskRabbit as much as we do!  

This position is fulltime and based in San Francisco.

  • Establish a shared vision for your product area amongst stakeholders, management, and your product team
  • Lead the ideation, technical development, and launch of innovative products
  • Integrate usability studies, research, quantitative findings, and market analysis into product thinking

COMPENSATION

In addition to working with the smartest team of entrepreneurs, advisors, and investors on the planet, TaskRabbit team members get a ton of perks:

  • Moola: Cash comp paired with equity — we are looking for the best and will pay them accordingly.

  • Challenge: The opportunity for growth in a fast-paced progressive company is yours for the taking.

  • Tasks: A monthly Task stipend, which is sort of like having your own 24/7 concierge army.

  • Benefits: Great health coverage and dental benefits, a flexible spending account, 401k plans, laundry service, and regular lunches on the company’s dime.

  • Education: A series of Lunch and Learn events — we call it Learnch — along with  in-office mentoring opportunities and access to the TaskRabbit library.

  • Office: A huge, dog-friendly SOMA loft built to accommodate collaboration, with two fully stocked kitchens and a game room. Great location in SOMA (5 blocks from CalTrain, 3 blocks from BART).
