About Product at OneCause
The OneCause product team is growing and improving the way we work every day. Our task is to develop a software platform to help nonprofits raise money as effectively as possible. Today we do that through incredible event experiences, mobile messaging, and peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising.
At OneCause we are building a robust product management practice and team. We are looking for smart, conscientious, and motivated people who want to master delivering meaningful products to the world. This role is for experienced PMs who have a track record of building successful software solutions with product teams.
The Product Manager role is a complex role that covers a wide range of responsibilities and activities. It comes with incredible influence and responsibility. You will work directly with engineers, stakeholders, and customers to shape the future of OneCause products. This role is targeted for individuals who have a broad set of experiences that have prepared them to be capable of the entire lifecycle of a product from customer discovery to final software delivery.
As a product manager, your day will consist of three distinct modes. The first is functioning as a teammate. At OneCause we have independent and autonomous product teams that consist of engineers, a product designer, and a product manager. You will work with this team to discover and deliver the right product. The second mode is as an individual. You will need to get inside your own head and synthesize the information and context you've collected in order to ask the right questions, foster great decisions, and sometimes make critical decisions. This requires individual study and work to build models and frameworks for the problem at hand and think about the vision of the future. Lastly, you will work as an ambassador to the rest of the company and the market. You need to understand customers and develop a shared understanding with marketing, support, sales, and the rest of OneCause.
