The Job

What we need

We are looking for an executive level product leader to drive strategy and execution across all of Facet's technical products. The products that we build support our clients, our internal team, and the external advisors that we partner with. You will have ownership of all of these lines. You will be responsible for prioritization and resource allocation to drive the most value to the overall company. You will also have strategic responsibilities to help the whole team understand what is possible with the technology that we build. Our business is supported by incredible and valuable technology, and you will be the person who dictates what the future of that is.

About You

  • You have 5 to 10 years of relevant experience in product leadership, with a proven track record of managing cross-functional teams and delivering innovative experiences to customers
  • You have experience with leadership and execution in a high-growth environment
  • You’re looking to get in on the ground floor of an exciting startup with a proven leadership team.
  • You have a strong vision for product strategy. You inspire and motivate your team to work together to execute that vision consistently, rapidly and effectively.
  • You have a proven record of translating business requirements to technical requirements and vice versa. You can speak the business and technical languages effectively.
  • You are a strategic thinker who will lead our product strategy; product leadership, planning, roadmapping, customer discovery, product discovery, user research and the product development process are all under your leadership.
  • You are an analytical thinker - you believe in data driven decision making.
  • You bring customer empathy to the product strategy process.
  • You are an expert collaborator, leading the communication and collaboration of other executives to better the product.
  • You are positive that failing fast and learning from mistakes are critical to drive continuous improvement. We are counting on hearing about your failure stories.

Your responsibilities

  • You are mission control between  business, engineering, and operations teams.
  • You lead collaboration between the CEO, CTO, VP of Engineering and the COO to make the vision of the product a reality
  • You get in the weeds of product development: you’re not afraid of managing projects and running a JIRA board in order to make the vision a reality

Perks

  • Competitive salary and significant equity: we pay up for the best talent
  • Report directly to the CEO
  • Unlimited vacation: we trust you
  • All the benefits: health insurance, 401(k), etc (oh, and a dedicated financial planner)
