Head of Product at Bare

Marketing, Full Time, Melbourne melbourne marketing product full-time
Posted a month ago

At Bare, we're passionate about transforming how the world thinks about death.

Our journey started in 2019 when our founders bonded over the shared experience of arranging a funeral. The more they looked into the industry, the more they realised how outdated it was - resulting in customer experiences that were complicated, expensive and increasingly less human. From here, our mission to change the narrative around end-of-life was born.

We are now one of Australia’s fastest growing startups, backed by high profile investors, with a highly committed and experienced team. Whether it’s arranging a funeral, managing your estate planning, digitising your memories or navigating complex estate administration - we combine empathy with technology to make end of life simple, transparent and affordable.

The Role

Our Head of Product is responsible for defining, scoping and building our next generation end-of-life platform.  Working closely with the founders, this role will lead the product team (1 x UX, 1 x Technical Lead, 3 Engineers) in developing and delivering the vision. Far more than just a delivery manager, our Head of Product will work cross-functionality to understand our customers, react quickly to feedback, and ensure that we're always working on the most impactful elements of the roadmap.

What would you do?

  • Product Vision: You will actively contribute towards the product vision and strive to understand the ‘why’ behind everything that is built. You will engage in robust discussions with the founders to ensure we're always working on the most impactful features.
  • Product Strategy: In partnership with key stakeholders you will develop, drive, maintain and communicate our product strategy
  • Product Roadmap: You will own, develop, prioritise, and deliver the product roadmap end to end
  • Product Delivery: You will define and manage sprints, and allocate cross-functional resources as needed to ensure timely and quality product delivery
  • Product Team: You will play a key role in hiring, training and managing a world-class product and engineering team
  • About you?

  • You're obsessed with solving big problems and building products that customers love
  • You're comfortable working with modern product frameworks and methodologies (agile, CI/CD, lean development etc)
  • You have the ability to think pragmatically about product outcomes relative to commercial outcomes
  • You don't mind taking some risks!

  • Complete ownership of a product that, we think, will completely change an industry
  • Amazing opportunities for personal growth and career development (we're growing quickly, and you're joining on the ground floor)
  • Above average remuneration package with performance bonuses and options available
  • An incredibly flexible working environment - work from home, the office, or anywhere in between
  • The ability to make a real difference - we're taking on an industry and we want to leave a dent!
