What this job is about:

As a Product Manager at HomeToGo, you will take ownership of one or more products helping vacation rental seekers. However, you have no authority over your teammates (such as software engineers and marketers), so you will have to influence others to follow your vision. You will be empowered to set ambitious goals for your product and team. Your goals will not be easy to achieve; they should inspire and motivate the team to think big. You will not be evaluated based on whether you meet the goal, but based on whether you deliver significant impact and meet or exceed the expectations of a good Product Manager.

You will constantly create hypotheses for improving your product, test them, and learn from the results.

Our product development philosophy is similar to the Lean Startup philosophy. You will create MVPs, prototypes, simple tests to validate ideas and iterate. You will NOT be an armchair Product Manager writing large PRDs and handing them off to the development team. You will wear many hats and constantly learn new things on the job. You will be surrounded by smart, dedicated, nice people.

In short, your tasks will include:

  • Build products that help people find and book vacation rentals.
  • Create simple solutions.
