Upstart is looking for a Product Manager to help us achieve our mission of enabling effortless credit based on true risk. In this PM role, you will focus on Powered by Upstart and making it the preferred technology platform for lenders. Powered by Upstart is our newest strategic initiative, and our vision for maximizing the reach and impact our technology can have on consumers. You will play a lead role in shaping that vision, and with it, the future of Upstart. You will work closely with engineering, business development, client services, and our lending partners to guide products from conception to launch. You will design and develop technologies that increase our market exposure, improve the accuracy and speed of our underwriting, reduce the cost of the capital we lend, and minimize operational costs. You will also play an important part in imagining our next moonshots.

You will bridge the technical and business worlds as you first design services that our customers love and then engage stakeholders to make them a reality. By clearly defining requirements and removing blockers, you will act as a multiplier on the productivity of your engineering squads.

Here is more about what you'll be doing:

  • Launching features and products on a regular basis.

  • Identifying market opportunities and defining product vision and strategy.

  • Understanding customer needs and gathering product requirements.

  • Developing new products and enhancing existing products.

  • Engaging closely with the engineering team to help determine the best technical implementation methods as well as a reasonable implementation schedule.

Here is what we are looking for:

  • 2+ years of product experience.

  • Experience with product management or product design with a focus on software products and technologies.

  • Passion and aptitude for credit and financing-related economic concepts.

  • BA/BS in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics, a related technical field, or equivalent practical experience.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 2+ years of product management experience at a growth-stage company

  • Demonstrated ability to achieve strategic goals in an innovative and fast-paced environment, and to evolve product strategy based on research, data and industry trends; excellent problem-solving, organizational and analytical skills.

  • Experience with product management and software development using an Agile development methodology.

  • Knowledge of multiple functional areas such as Product Management, Engineering, UX/UI, Sales Customer Support, Finance or Marketing; understanding of full-funnel conversion best practices (e.g. distribution strategies, funnel conversion, operational go-to-market).

  • Experience building online finance products, and/or knowledge of the consumer finance market.
