Toronto, Ontario - Permanent
Our client is a Research, Development and Innovation Lab located in downtown Toronto, that are responsible for transmitting billions of bytes of electronic and secure data at dizzying speeds. Their goal is to make eCommerce and Online Payments more accessible and convenient.
Product Managers on their team not only fret about product strategy (what should be built and for whom) but also on every minor detail (why is the splash screen around for 0.25 seconds longer than necessary). They’re the catalysts of all that they stand for — which is to build trust and to deliver the best experience for their users. If you are a product manager in their team, you love technology, obsess about your product(s), and your friends think of you as having an addiction to gadgets and secretly envy you for all the stuff you know about every new product before anyone else!
You likely known for strong opinions on different products; you scorn at the ones you dislike and can’t stop talking about those you love. When you speak about how the world would be in the next few years, people listen and never interrupt because they are in awe of your ability to imagine a new world. You can merge objectivity in analysis and also create an emotional connection to the user by speaking to them from your heart.
They are looking for someone who oozes passion, ownership, and a love of building great things. The Product and Engineering teams will rely heavily on your build, and you will have a ton of trust and responsibility.
