Job Description

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. 

About You:

  •  If you’ve run a Kickstarter campaign through its entirety, that’s a plus. 
  • You have experience building and shipping successful products to the world. 
  • You have prior Product experience focused on consumer web and mobile or social. 
  • You are a confident leader: proactive, energetic, driven, and inspiring. 
  • You are a strong collaborator, communicator and mentor to others. 
  • You have empathy for our diverse community of backers and creators. 
  • You are scrappy, with an entrepreneurial spirit towards problem-solving and organization. 
  • You are skilled in various ways to unearth product opportunities and validate ideas (A/B testing, prototyping, spikes, MVPs, etc.). 
  • You have experience in both qualitative and quantitative product research. 
  • You are confident in your ability to present work and ideas. You can synthesize findings into next steps. 
  • You have experience developing product process, reporting and measurement. 
  • You have excellent communication, writing, and people skills. 
  • You have a deep interest in Kickstarter’s mission to help bring creative projects to life, and the product opportunities and challenges that come along with it.
