Kickstarter is seeking an experienced Product Manager to help us inspire people to support creators and bring creative projects to life.
About the Team
On the Project Community team, we’re helping creators reach, gather, and build backer communities around their projects. We’re tackling issues like how to help creators optimize their existing networks, designing better channels for creators and backers to communicate more regularly, and developing more resources for both practical and creative support. Come join our collaborative team of engineers, data analysts, designers, community specialists, and more as we work to strengthen communities for all Kickstarter creators!
About the Role
From improving core features to delivering brand new ideas and utilizing innovative technology, you’ll be leading the Project Community team through every phase of the product process: brainstorming, research, wireframing, testing, development, deployment, analysis, follow-up, and iteration. You will synthesize broad strokes into clear, actionable, and phased roadmaps with clear objectives. You will lean heavily on your ability to map obstacles and solve problems creatively every day. We’re open to a wide range of experience, but we’re especially interested in candidates who have a demonstrated track record of success in developing inspiring and functional products for web, mobile, and native platforms.
