Full time Product Manager

Job Description

At Guideline, we’re helping Americans save for a better future. Guideline is the only 401(k) provider with a fee-free, full-stack 401(k) offering that automates plan administration and compliance with a platform that directly integrates with many of the most popular payroll providers. 
By building transparent and first-of-its-kind software, the Guideline team is combatting what has become the retirement industry status quo -- legacy providers have put profit over the interests of employees, abandoning the goal of the programs in the first place: to give employees the opportunity to save as much as possible for retirement. 
With over 4,000 clients and hundreds of millions of dollars in assets under management, in just a couple years of operations, we’re well on our way to making smart retirement planning easy for everyone.

The Challenge:
Operating as a product manager at Guideline is a compelling experience. We're reimagining systems that haven't been criticized in decades. Today's best examples are institutional and stale. Users can't develop proper mental models because the product UX speaks to someone with a background in finance. What if you had the opportunity to change the way people approach their personal finance? What if you had the opportunity to rethink your own? What if company-sponsored financial benefits were actually benefits?
