Job Description

As the first Product Manager at Footprint Labs, you'll be the conductor of our product and engineering teams.

Working directly with our CEO (head of product) and CTO, your mission is to maximize the amount of time that the product and technology teams spend on their core work (building and shipping product across multiple platforms) by minimizing their time spent on writing requirements, software blockers, meetings, designing edge case and filler features, planning sprints, and thinking about--and executing on--anything not related to shipping product.

About You: You're a missionary at heart and a product master in your head.

You can tackle large and complex software projects by breaking them down into micro-tasks, and then managing them with cloud-based services and an endearing human touch. Engineers and Product designers like working with you and for you. You know your way around startups and technology companies. Around Github, Slack, IFTTT, Pivotal Tracker, Jira, Asana, Google Documents, and more. You're proficient in product management, in writing software requirements, in building backlogs, in feature prioritization, in sprint planning, and in management of ideation-to-shipping. You've worked with distributed engineering teams. You understand and believe in Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. You don't believe in process for process' sake, however, and can distinguish between tasks that need to be fully automated and those that need a lighter touch.

- Manage product delivery
- Manage product design
- Manage product development across multiple platforms--in parallel
- Manage design, product, and engineering communication
- Work closely with the CEO to define product
- Work closely with the CTO to ship product
- Write software specs
- Help build the product and engineering teams
- Prepare product presentations to the CEO and board
- Recruit, train, and expand the Product Management team at Footprint
