What we're looking for
Contribute.to, a Laterpay brand, is looking for a Product Manager mid-level or higher to join our fully distributed team full time.
We believe that tech has a moral responsibility to help the creative world, and we are developing a suite of enterprise-grade micropayment tools and APIs to monetize digital content simply and easily.
We’ve been a fully distributed organization for almost 10 years, and we’re pretty proud of the supportive remote culture we’ve created and fine tuned over the years. We use Slack as our office, Jira for transparency and organizing work, and video calls for real-time collaboration (and just to hang out face to face).
You’ll work on a new initiative that we are just launching. It is still in its MVP stage with many features that need to be taken from an idea to a usable product. This includes features for consumers, business partners, and internal staff.
For this role, we’re looking for someone who can jump in quickly, take the existing backlog and move it forward, identify roadblocks or issues that might come up and provide solutions to them, and most importantly help us deliver a product that people love to use.
We would expect our ideal candidate to be able to:
- Work with designers to ideate and create final designs/ flows
- Work with developers and create tickets in jira as needed
- Create PRDs
- Take ideations/designs from management and execute on them
- Get stakeholders buy-in on own ideations
- Help manage backlog and prioritize work
- Collaborate with project manager
- Look at user’s problems/needs (market/user research) and get solutions (we don’t expect you to come up with every solution on all your own, but we do expect you to be able to use what is at your disposal to come to a solution)
How we work
LaterPay is a team of 20+ people spread over 13+ countries in time zones from UTC-8 to UTC+2. Since our founding, we have been remote first (though we have offices in Munich and in New York).
We care more about the things you do than whether you’re at your desk at 9am every day. That said, most of us work Monday - Friday from 7ish UTC to 4ish UTC, and ideally you’ll overlap at least 4 hours with that. We try to be as asynchronous
as possible, but still feel that we need some “synchronicity” to work well. You will report to the Head of Product (UTC-5) who usually works from 12:00 UTC - 20:00 UTC
Our values are:
- Be fearless. Be entrepreneurial.
- Simplify things.
- Own your decisions. Your successes. Your mistakes.
- Enjoy diversity and inclusion.
- Work as a team. Trust each other.
- AllHands (biannual team event)
- Annual training and personal development budget
- Paid sick leave
- Paid time off
- Distributed, international team
- Flexible work
- Company laptop
