How you can help make a better world of work

The Opportunity at Culture Amp

Culture Amp is a rapidly growing company empowering our customers to build Culture First companies. Our market-leading, category-defining Engagement product has been the engine of our success. In 2019 we added an award winning performance management solution to our portfolio. These two products together enable us to deliver highly differentiated, powerful and industry-leading capabilities to our customers.

We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to work within our cross-functional Performance Camp, leading efforts to create a class leading goals product.

In the early part of your time here, you will focus on deeply learning our product and helping us find smart ways to improve existing features. We then expect you to progress quickly in collaboration with other teams to find entirely new paths to value and ensure the goals product moves closer to fulfilling its core role in the platform. 

By the end of your first quarter, you will have evaluated and updated the existing product roadmap, with input from customers, engineers, designers and people across Culture Amp. You will have shared a clear vision for the future of the product and will be guiding the cross functional team on which problems to solve first to return the most value to our customers and Culture Amp.

What You Bring to Our Camp

Product Managers at Culture Amp are curious, autonomous and analytical. They are focused on understanding customer problems deeply and combine the problems that customers face with industry trends and our broader company mission and strategy, to create solutions that are impactful and easy-to-use. 

Even if you’re not totally confident doing all these things yet, you should feel excited about:

  • Deeply understanding the problems the customers are facing and why these problems are so important to solve. Build empathy around these customer problems with the appropriate audience, whether it’s your team, the Product Management practice, our customers, the product group or the company at large.
  • Create a product strategy that addresses the customer pain points and use quantitative and qualitative data to guide your strategy. What do the markets in which our product operates look like? How should we think about our product positioning?
  • Break big goals down into small, solvable pieces, and be able to reliably select and deliver the pieces that have disproportionately high value.
  • Actively use data to confirm and disprove your hypothesis. Challenge your existing mental models and biases to create the best product possible. 
  • Prioritize with specific, concrete goals in mind and balance short-term and long-term trade-offs.
  • Evaluate ideas, proposals and solutions critically. Making the ideas of others stronger with your input. 
  • Build relationships with cross-functional and matrix teams. Make sure that the team is aligned and everyone is moving in the same direction
  • Doing Linear Algebra and Calculus (j/k or am I?)

We have a very strong bias for candidates who can do many or most of these things well already, and we are very happy to coach you in your development of the rest, except Linear Algebra, which I don’t remember much about.

We expect that most of our candidates will have experience in some flavour of Agile software development environment, but we do not want or expect PMs to spend large amounts of their time in Jira. Above all, we want to hire PMs who we believe will help Culture Amp grow, and help our customers achieve their goals.
