Posted 21 days ago

Before we dive into the role, let’s talk about flexibility. Our Zipsters can choose where and when they work by taking full advantage of our hybrid-work environment. So whether you’re mostly remote, mostly in the office or a mix of the two, you’ll be empowered to do whatever brings out your best.

About us

We are Zip, a global Buy Now, Pay Later company providing fair and seamless solutions that simplify how millions of people pay. Our journey began in Australia, has taken us to 14 countries (so far) - and we’re just getting started.

We exist to create a world where people can live fearlessly today, knowing they’re in control of tomorrow. Focused on product innovation that puts people at the centre, we put the financial well-being of our customers and merchant partners at the heart of everything that we do.

The role

You’ll own product management for merchant and consumer engagement in Australia, leading a sizable team of expert product managers, and reporting to our Chief Product Officer. 

It’s a high-visibility, high-impact opportunity to step-change the value Zip provides to our customers and partners, by delivering a beautiful joining experience, building an amazing digital wallet, and creating a world-class merchant dashboard.

Your product group informally leads squads of engineers and product designers to set vision, define strategy, drive delivery, take to market and commercialise product features that drive acquisition and engagement for both consumer customers and merchant partners. 

Your goals will include uplifting acquisition by simplifying the joining experience for our customers and merchants across mobile and web, delivering a beautiful merchant dashboard experience, bringing our digital wallet to life through our expanding financial services business, and helping to keep our customers’ money and business safe working closely with fraud teams.

We'd love someone who brings knowledge of the merchant problem space, is passionate about enabling the financial wellbeing of our millions of ANZ consumers, who is happy at the strategic level, in the detail and during delivery, and brings the experience and drive to lead a high-performing product group.

To help us level up, you'll bring:

  • 10 or more years’ experience in product management and leadership, gained from technology, payments or financial services companies committed to delivering great customer-focused outcomes
  • Specific expertise in and passion for the merchant problem space - perhaps gained in an ecommerce or platform business
  • Strong commercial acumen with proven ability to deliver superior financial results through market leading customer experiences
  • Experience implementing product management strategies, using data and analytics to generate demand, optimise conversion and drive engagement 
  • Exceptional relationship skills with the ability to build consensus and action across our business
  • Natural leadership qualities, with a bias for action blended with a collaborative approach, and experience building, growing and leading high performing teams
  • Substantial knowledge and practical application of Design Thinking, Lean and Agile principles
  • Team-orientation with the desire to contribute beyond your domain, who always thinks team-first
  • Content in a fast-paced environment and able to move with a sense of urgency, but sensitive enough to give people space and comfort to add suggestions
  • Our values in your DNA: Customer First, Own It, Stronger Together and Change the Game
  • We’re proud to be a values-led business. They guide us in everything we do - how we work together and create game-changing experiences for our customers and fellow Zipsters.

    If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

    We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.
