Melbourne, Victoria melbourne product full-time
Posted a month ago

Hi - I'm Rhys, the Chief Product Officer at Fresh Equities and I'm looking for an enthusiastic and energised associate product manager to join our product team.

About Fresh Equities.

Fresh Equities is a high growth, fully funded, fintech startup headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. We are helping investors gain equitable access to listed capital raises. Historically when a listed company raises capital, your ability to participate is dependent on who is running the deal and your relationship to them. This means investors miss out and companies lose out.

The marketplace we've built removes the friction for investors to discover and access these capital events and gives companies greater participation and transparency. Since launching in late 2018, we've uncovered more than $500m of investor demand into over 1,000 capital raises.

About the opportunity

This role will be joining the Amplify team, a product squad focused on reducing the friction for companies to engage their shareholders at scale. We've found that the best capital raises are the result of a company engaging with new and existing shareholders 365 days a year. As the retail investor market has boomed over Covid and new investment opportunities have exploded, it has never been more important or difficult to build an investor community as a company.

By joining the Amplify team you will be helping shape the Product that will be the difference maker for listed companies that thrive in this post-covid market.

About the role

The role of associate product manager is the entry-level role for the product team. We aren't expecting you to hit the ground and know how to drive the product. You will be working with experienced Product Managers to shape new features and discover the next iteration of existing features. You will be working within a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, designers, product managers and operations people.

As a new product manager your first few months will be spent learning about the market, the business, our users and the product strategy. During your first year you will;

  • Contribute to the product shaping process by identifying Strategic Fit, Business Value and the User Problems Hypothesis of new and existing features.
  • Guide the team in prioritising the feature roadmap based on the key features listed above.
  • Interview users to better understand their problems and requirements.
  • Define metrics and KPIs your team will use to measure the success of experiments and features.
  • Align internal and external stakeholders around the product roadmap.

About you

You're a strategic thinker who can take complex problems and find a way to explain them simply. A highly collaborative person, you enjoy on working on problems with a team rather than on your own. You are comfortable operating in an environment with high uncertainty, as you are used to being the person who has to come up with the plan.

What we are looking for;

  • 1+ year of experience working in a product-led company in either product management, strategy, design, engineering or customer success role
  • A professional or personal interest in investing
  • Strong analytic and communication skills
  • Applications with a cover letter attached to their resume will be prioritised, help us understand why we are a mutual fit.

If this job sounds like what you want to do but you're not sure if you tick all the boxes, please reach out. We believe it's more important to find the right people at Fresh, rather than the right resume. Diversity of thought, background, and approach are all essential ingredients for an amazing outcome. Just let us know what it is you think you can bring to the role and the team and why you’re excited to join in.

Why Fresh Equities?

In addition to an amazing role, team and salary we offer:

  • Friday wraps, giving you a play-by-play of the week and insight to the business.
  • End of month celebrations - think mini golf, bowling, karaoke, games nights.
  • Catered breakfasts Monday and lunches Thursday!
  • Hybrid work environment
  • Continuous Professional Development your way with a $5k budget towards education and personal growth
  • Plus lots more!

All of our full-time staff are offered equity in the business through our employee share option pool in addition to their salary. We want you along for the long journey as we continue to grow Fresh into a Fintech juggernaut.

Fresh is proudly an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity and know we are better and stronger as a team when the team is made up of individuals with different backgrounds and experiences. We recruit, employ, train, compensate and promote regardless of race, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family or carer’s responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, or political opinion and we aspire to always be a place that people want to come to do their best work in an inclusive, progressive and open-minded environment.
