Introduction

It's an exciting time at ZINIER! Fresh off of our Series A from Accel Partners (one of Silicon Valley’s premier VCs), we are currently expanding our rockstar Product Design team in preparation for the design and launch of products built using the next generation of our platform -- products that meet the needs of our Enterprise clients in a revolutionary new way complete with an updated look/feel and powerful new technology stack. It sounds a bit cliche, but our Product Design team is on a mission to create a truly beautiful and easy-to-use platform/interface. The design and usability of Enterprise products tends to be WAY behind consumer products. Our aim is to close that gap.

Ideally you have demonstrated an excellent track record for driving new product capabilities from initial concept to successful delivery and customer adoption. Product managers who thrive in a lean, agile, collaborative environment, and love working with the best in class should apply.

Responsibilities

As the Senior Product Manager, you will play a critical role in designing the future of the company. As the “CEO” of the product, you will focus on the long and short term vision of various products built on top of our cutting edge Platform as a Service. You will be responsible for market, business case, and delivery analysis. You will be responsible for curating a vision, setting goals, writing requirements, and delivering a variety of products built on top of our platform. In addition, you will be responsible for bringing together engineers, designers, and departments from around the company to ensure that our products are useful, delightful, and delivered on-schedule.
