Senior Product Manager

🚀 About Lived

Our mission Lived is on a mission to radically change the way people access and experience support for overcoming some of life’s toughest challenges—starting with alcohol.

Our vision We believe the future of health support is peer-led and clinically-backed, because there can be no greater teacher than lived experience. That’s why all of Lived’s products are guided by people who have overcome their own challenges in life, figured out what works, and share that wisdom through Lived—in a way that others can truly relate to and learn from.

What is Lived? Lived is an app for anyone wanting to make changes with alcohol (big or small). Lived connects you with the wisdom and advice of those who have navigated through their own challenges with alcohol, discovered what works, and reached where you want to be. Audio guides take less than 10 minutes a day, in your own space at your own pace. No labels. No judgement. No pressure. Just real answers from people who have been there.

🧱We're searching for our Frank Gehry Product that you?

There have been rare, but spectacular moments in recent history, where the power of art and science have seamlessly come together, and fundamentally changed the human experience. Like when architect Frank Gehry, challenged the limits of both construction and our perceptions of what buildings can be, to create public spaces beyond our wildest imaginations. Or when designer Jony Ive, challenged the concept of the ‘personal computer’ and ended up revolutionising personal technology forever.

And maybe, with a bit of time—you, by challenging healthcare as we know it today, and taking peer-led support to new heights...and saving countless lives in the process.

👷About the role

We don’t just need a great creative thinker or a master engineer—we need an architect. Someone who can not only set an extraordinary vision and challenge what’s possible, but can plan, design and lead the construction. That’s why we’re looking for our Gehry.

We need a Product executor who is experienced in building something spectacular from the ground up 🏗. You know how to not only build the big picture vision but understand the incremental steps that must be taken to get there. But more than anything, you are obsessed with the user: how will they interact with the space; how will they be made to feel in the space; and how can you keep knocking done walls/barriers and building new things that constantly improve their life.

Just like Frank, you'll have an exceptional team around you to help bring your masterpiece to life. Scientists who can help you to understand who you're building for and make your concepts stronger; a team of engineers who can build your vision and make your designs stronger; and a leadership team that will support you in every way possible to make your vision, impact and leadership skills stronger too.

We spent 2022 building, learning, and listening to our members and creators. We’ve crafted our Product vision and roadmap for 2023 and have the tools, team, and direction, we know exactly who we're building for—now we just need our world-class architect to help us deliver it with velocity and care.

A glance into our product initiatives in 2023….

We have new content formats coming (which will allow our creators more freedom to create and earn!); a new Guide Portal, which will creators to self-serve, and upload their content, anywhere, any time; Lived Guide Community is about to grow in a BIG way; Members will get “matched” with peers they relate to the most, leveling up our personalization; our member community is becoming more niche with special interest groups; AND, we are launching our initial coaching offering, allowing our members to book chat sessions with our guides to get more private advice and support.

Our team

Our team and all of our contributors are made up of people who have lived experience with addiction. People who are living examples of what's possible. People who actually know what it takes.


💼 Backed by top investors including Folklore, Antler, Airtree, Simon Griffiths (Co-Founder & CEO of Who Gives A Crap), and more.

👀 Featured in the Australian Financial Review as one to watch.

🤝 Partnered with Monash University, The Buttery, Australian Federal Government and other industry leaders.

💪 Founder: CEO & Founder Sally Krebs is one of the youngest (and most fierce) CEO's in the global Social Impact Start-up community—having founded Lived at just 27. Read her story here.

Our values

    Well doneeeeeeee

  • 🤝 People are the priority. Period.

    Lived is built by and for real people. From the goals we set to the way we hire; the products we build, to the way we speak—people are always the priority. We hire extraordinary humans and look way beyond just their capabilities. Our team don't miss doctor's appointments or our friend's birthdays—because we're people first and Lived team members second. We're building products to drive better human connection and inclusion. We support 'people living with addiction' and never 'addicts'. We thrive on this connection to ourselves, our peers, our community and our cause.

  • 💎 Clear is kind

    We are highly transparent and embrace vulnerability—and see the extraordinary power in both of those things. We value inclusivity, direct communication, candid feedback and high respect for one another. Our circle of trust enables us to work better, smarter and faster.

  • 🙌 Lead with pride

    Shame and stigma have no place in addiction—or at Lived. We couldn't be more proud of the people and community we support, and we sing it loud and proud. Our bold mission is matched by our determination. We stick to our word and will always do what’s right over what’s easy. We don’t shy away from tough conversations, but we always consider who may be listening.

  • 👂 Listen carefully

    We never have all of the answers. We never assume. We seek to understand. The conversation around addiction and how we best support people will be constantly evolving—and we’ll always be listening, and pushing ourselves to learn and grow.
