Product Manager

San Francisco, CA | Product

Job Description

Do you want to be a part of a growing and energetic startup with a product spanning 190 countries? Tradeshift is disrupting the enterprise software space in a big way. B2B has entered the Platform era and we are leading the charge.

By connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform, network and tools needed to develop apps, communicate in real-time and create value from old processes like invoicing, payments and workflow, Tradeshift is redefining an enterprise space that has seen little change in many years. We recognize that business is messy and business is social. Understanding these two facts drives the development of Tradeshift - a platform for all your business interactions. 
 
Underlying any successful platform is a thriving ecosystem of applications built on top of the platform by third party developers and integrations by strategic partners. Tradeshift is looking for a San Francisco based Product Manager to lead this effort.
 
Your Role
  • Define and manage on an ongoing basis the roadmap and prioritized product backlog for enabling applications and platform extensions
  • Facilitate development of sprint plans and ensure adherence to the same
  • Through data driven insights, evaluate and communicate effectiveness of features released and make follow up recommendations
  • Quickly develop an in-depth understanding of the Tradeshift platform and propose exciting integration opportunities for developers, partners and customers
  • Challenge traditional solutions for customer problems by proposing innovative technical alternatives that demonstrate the strength of the Tradeshift platform
  • Liaison with strategic partners and developers - and ensure applications built on top of the Tradeshift platform are meaningful and innovative to both parties
  • Maintain a keen awareness of the market landscape as it relates to B2B/enterprise software and platform APIs
  • Kick off Tradeshift’s developer outreach and engagement and initiatives, and maintain a two-way communication channel through developer events, blogging and social media
Your Profile
  • Advanced engineering and/or business degree from a top university
  • Experience building web or mobile applications is a plus
  • 3 to 5 years of work experience in product management of platform/API, or as an evangelist for relevant web technologies
  • Self-motivated, high-energy, ambitious and passionate go-getter who can thrive in a challenging, but rewarding, fast-paced startup environment
  • Technology tinkerer and creative thinker - someone who can dream up big opportunities and through passion, persistence and attention to detail, drive the team to deliver on them
  • Familiarity with agile product development practices - and preferably experience dealing global engineering teams
  • Ability to execute on aggressive and dynamic product development timelines with competing resources and priorities
  • Strong communication and inter-personal skills
  • Ability to travel domestically and internationally
What We Offer
  • An ambitious, international start-up environment with a vision and strategy to create something BIG
  • A product development team working at the absolute cutting edge of UX, mobile and touch
  • A competitive compensation package balanced between fixed salary and options
  • Medical, dental and vision benefits covered 100%
