Very Good Ventures is a technology design and development studio that uses cutting edge technology to create competitive advantage for our clients. We dream. We design. We build. We ship. We operate. We love what we do.

While most companies are building apps the same way it’s been done for a decade, we are leading the charge to transform how apps for mobile, desktop, and web are created. We are the global leader in Flutter — Google’s UI toolkit for building beautiful, natively compiled applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase.

Our clients range from well-funded startups to philanthropic foundations to Fortune 500 companies, including Google, Hamilton: The Musical, The New York Times, PolicyGenius, Medly Pharmacy, Aura, H.A.Berkheimer, and more.

Come be a part of the coming Flutter Transformation.

What You’ll Do

Our primary goal as a company is to deliver the best experience to our clients, in addition to the best possible applications we can create. Ensuring a client’s vision is well defined, translated into product strategy and development plans, and executed efficiently is paramount to the services we provide. As such, Product Management is a crucial, if not the most important, function within our business.

As the Director of Product Management, you will have a career-defining opportunity to build a world-class Product Management team within our organization as Very Good Ventures rapidly grows. We are a lean, fast-moving, highly-skilled, and passionate team that is looking to change the status quo of application design and development. This is an opportunity to break the mold and provide the requisite leadership to build a next generation company that transforms the industry.

This is an executive leadership role, but one that is also hands on with our client work. You will be responsible for establishing efficient and productive internal processes as well as creating and executing a Product Management team development plan. Additionally, you will play a primary role in working with and managing the leadership teams of our clients to understand their visions and translate their needs into actionable executables. Lastly, you will work directly with our design and technology team leads to ensure that client expectations are met. At the end of the day, the goal is to ensure that our team, our clients, and our end users are happy.
