Description

Dave is the finance version of David and Goliath taking on the big banks. A financial friend to the millions of Americans who use the app, Dave helps with  budgeting, building credit, finding work and accessing money to cover immediate expenses before payday. Instead of mandatory fees, Dave lets users pay what they think is fair through a ‘tip’ based model. Dave users plant a tree for each % tip they leave when taking an advance, resulting in tens of millions of trees planted.
 
We are choosing to build a quality team vs a large team. You will be a formative part of our company culture moving forward. To that point, we want someone that can take ownership of a project from beginning to end and can do it on their own. We’ll be there to support you but not hold your hand.
 
Sure, we’ve checked all the boxes you’d expect from a fast-moving startup, but the best thing we can offer you is a supportive environment for learning and opportunities for personal/professional growth.

Who are you?

    • You have a strong quantitative background to support data-informed decision-making
    • You are accountable and communicative when it comes to meeting deadlines and ship dates
    • You have a solid understanding of engineering and technical depth that lets you understand and earn the respect of best-in-class engineers
    • You are highly organized and enjoy rallying a cross-functional team to deliver ambitious goals
    • You have experience partnering with research throughout product development and incorporating insights and evidence into product decisions
    • You have excellent communication skills and excel at translating customer problems & ideas into product requirements
    • You are dedicated to keeping the customer at the center of product and design decisions, and strive to improve the overall customer experience
    • You can foster empathy for customers whose daily life, circumstances, and needs might be very different than your own

What will you do?

    • Closely monitor, measure, and interpret key metrics across the organization 
    • Collaborate effectively with C-Suite, PMs, Engineering, Design, and Data to create, plan, and own our company-wide product roadmap
    • Prioritize and pursue the highest impact opportunities using data to back up your decisions
    • Establish a shared product vision and strategy both across product lines and within the company by building consensus on priorities leading to product execution
    • Work cross-functionally with our team and use the data available to you to develop insights into the behaviors and needs of Dave members. Further, you will translate those insights into hypotheses, tests and features for how we can improve the product
    • Work with Product, Engineering, and Design teams to build, test, and ship product experiments in a fast-paced environment
    • Recruit and lead a team of high performing product managers, helping to develop their craft and career paths

What have you done before?

    • 10+ years of product management in a consumer tech company
    • 6+ years experience building, inspiring, and leading teams of high-quality product managers
    • Preferably have a Bachelors or Masters in Computer Science or equivalent experience
