Product Manager - Platform
Binti builds modern software to help every child have a safe, loving, and stable family. Working with county and state governments across 34 states, Binti's tools improve the child welfare system. The 500+ agencies using Binti serve about 40% of children in child welfare in the US, and agencies using Binti have increased the number of approved families by an average of 30%, making a real dent in the shortage of foster/adoptive parents for children in the US. Beyond helping families foster/adopt children, Binti is launching software to support families who are struggling to get the services they need to stay together with or reunify with their children.
Binti is a for-profit, mission-driven software company based in Oakland, CA. Investors include Founders Fund, First Round Capital, Kapor Capital, and others. We’re a team of 90+ people and growing quickly. We care about creating a workplace where everyone feels welcome and can bring their full self to work. We have a huge, ambitious vision to rewire government to be more effective in order to expand opportunities for people around the world, and we are looking for mission-driven, high-empathy, high-performance, and low-ego team members to join us on our exciting journey towards that vision.
OVERVIEW OF ROLE
At Binti, Product Managers drive the strategy and execution of innovative software products that make it easier for children to have the safety, support, and permanency of a loving home.
