Product Manager

 

AfterPay is on the lookout for a Product Manager to further drive our growth and expansion story

 

To further facilitate our growth, in the booming market of Fintech, we are looking to strengthen our team with a new Product Manager focused on the Dutch market and extension of our part payment offering. If you thrive in a fast-paced international environment focused around lending products while being intrinsically motivated to comb through and get inspired by data - then this might just be the perfect opportunity for you and reason to continue reading.

 

We empower our product teams to solve hard problems of our users – consumer problems and merchant problems – in ways that users love, yet contribute to our business. Our product teams are cross-functional, generally comprising alongside product managers, experience designers, and several engineers.

For you to succeed in this position, you are used to balancing local priorities towards international roadmaps with ease and are happy to handle moments of chaos. This means that you contribute a solid knowledge of the various constraints of the business – constraints from marketing, sales, service, finance, legal, and compliance are typical examples. Add in a deep knowledge of our users and the data about how they engage with our products, but even more importantly bring an insatiable curiosity and fascination of their decision making. You are expected to track industry trends and the competitive landscape, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium, as they pertain to your product. In this case its driving a new generation of consumer lending products.

 

While we empower our product teams to figure out the best solutions to the problems that need to be solved, we also hold teams accountable to the results. Writing user stories and shipping is necessary, but not sufficient. We look for passionate product managers who are not afraid of signing up for results, even when this means they have to work through others to succeed.
