Slated is seeking a versatile, motivated Senior Product Manager / UX Lead with strong technical skills to take a key role in building our next-generation film-finance marketplace. In addition to design and technical skills, you should also have experience using analytics to identify product opportunities and be familiar with agile development processes and tools. You must be able to shift quickly between conceptual brainstorming and implementation-focused designing. And the ideal candidate will also be able to step in as a front-end developer when required.

You will work closely with the CEO to define product vision, translate vision into detailed feature specifications and UX designs for the engineering team, and continually manage project scope to keep our agile development process moving. You will serve in the Product Owner decision-maker role and be responsible for managing user and internal team feedback.

This is a position that’s perfect for an all-rounder with ambition and drive. You may have started as a traditional product manager and have become more technical and design-focused as your career progressed. You may have started your career as a UX designer and have grown into a front-end developer that can understand the full implementation path for your designs and write your own specs. Or you may even be a full stack developer that has a talent for design and a deep understanding of the functionality you build. Whatever your background, you must be a clear communicator and have an innate ability to manage the scope of your projects. You will be called upon daily to make scope and design decisions, so you must be decisive and pragmatic while also understanding what matters to our users.
