PickFu is a consumer research software company that helps companies and entrepreneurs make better-informed decisions about their products, designs, marketing, and more. Businesses across such industries as e-commerce, mobile gaming, and publishing use PickFu to gather consumer insights quickly and at a fraction of the cost of traditional market research surveys. As our first product manager, you will work directly with the co-founders and a small development team to democratize consumer research through its DIY platform. The role requires a mix of great technical depth, principled thinking and well-honed product judgment. Given the two-sided marketplace nature of our business (panel respondents, customers), you will not have the luxury of having tunnel-vision for any one area; rather, you will need to think holistically and understand the business deeply to guide the right long-term strategy.WHAT YOU'LL DO Drive product strategy, providing clear vision on strategic best next steps to meet business objectives. Develop and distribute a product strategy that bridges the technical and business worlds and balances our short-term and long-term business objectives. Develop and own product roadmaps, aligning cross-functional teams to deliver a product people absolutely love. Ensure partners and development teams have timely and appropriately detailed requirements to move forward quickly. Write product requirements and user stories as required for development. Partner directly with company founders to rapidly drive our business forward, identify new opportunities for PickFu, and affect long-term organizational change.
