The Whispir product team is building a communications intelligence platform. It's a way for customers to send messages via SMS, Email and other channels that deliver the world's highest engagement rates and a distraction-free messaging platform at the same time. Where we focus is on the effectiveness and engagement of the messages we send. So when you create a message inside of Whispir, our goal is to help customers design messages that actually drive engagement.
As we all know, the world is distracted by messages that most people don't want or don't need and our mission is to change the way the world communicates for the better and get organisations communicating like people. If you want to work on authentic, machine learning focused products - Whispir is an amazing place to work.
Product Managers work in small, autonomous cross functional teams and deliver 3 simple promises.
Generally speaking we hire product managers with good judgement, good people skills and who exhibit the 5 key traits we look for - but knowing how to ship good software and being a good human to your peers are really the only skills that matter.
When we hire product managers, our interview format is designed to focus less on where you've worked and what you've done, and more about how you perform on practical exercises in the interview process. This means we are optimising for hiring the best person on the day, no matter who you are.
Our interview format asks very specific questions that allow you to demonstrate the below traits.
Are your ideas creative and demonstrate a good deal of lateral thinking?
Do you logically break down a problem and cover off edge cases in a thoughtful manner. One way we use analytical skills in practice is to do firmi estimations to work out potential market sizes for certain ideas.
Do your solutions support Whispir's Mission, Our vision for the future and our short term goals.
We are looking for candidates who can persuade a room and manage stakeholders effectively.
We are looking for product managers who can suspend judgement and be curious about customers, solutions and problems.
