Everyone is welcome at Handshake. We know diverse teams build better products and we are committed to creating an inclusive culture built on a foundation of respect for all individuals. We strongly encourage candidates from non-traditional backgrounds, historically marginalized or underrepresented groups to apply.

Your impact

Handshake is hiring a Product Manager reporting to the Senior Director, Product on our Employer team. Employers already account for a lion’s share of Handshake’s revenue, and we expect this growth to continue as we scale our SaaS offering and define the category of proactive, data-driven recruiting that helps employers hire entry level talent and young professionals find their first and second jobs.

We’ve made strides to become the market leader in college jobs, recruiting events, and novel methods for employers to reach both targeted and broad talent pools. You’ll be building on this foundation, creating new products and reimagining existing ones to transform how employers form trust-based relationships with candidates across multiple mediums that scales for a marketplace of millions of active users.

You’ll be part of a close-knit cross-functional team of not just R&D but also Go-To-Market, including marketing operations, product marketing, sales, customer success and insights. At the same time, you’ll be mindful about making a positive societal impact, increasing access for diverse talent in entry level recruiting.

Your role

You’ll own the lifecycle end-to-end for your product area, including:

  • Product Strategy. You’ll ensure that your squad has a cohesive and differentiated product strategy that ladders up into the Employer team and company strategy.
  • Product development: You’ll lead a high performing cross-functional squad, including engineering and design partners, from research and roadmap planning to delivery
  • Launch and adoption: You’ll partner closely on go-to-market and implementation, working with marketing, sales and customer success. You never hesitate to roll up your sleeves and tackle something hands-on. It’s never someone else’s problem. You’ll run beta programs and pilots to maximize learning and minimize code investment, getting close to the customer and the details through the process.
  • Cross-Handshake partnership: You’ll work with stakeholders across Handshake’s largest team (the broader Employer team) and on other sides of the Handshake marketplace (EDUs and Student) to innovate quickly but deliberately
  • Goals, metrics and tracking: You’ll create a robust and clear thread of data from strategy through development through in-market iteration.

Your experience

  • 3+ years as a product manager partnering with engineering teams to ship code. Ideally in a many-stakeholder environment with dependencies and collaboration.
  • Strong systems and analytical thinker. Can connect the dots, spot challenges and edge cases, integrate multiple considerations.
  • Working knowledge of data-driven applications including mapping, schemas, permissions that inform user interactions and downstream analytics.
  • User focused. You dive headfirst into understanding the needs of employers and build products grounded in data and research.

Bonus areas of expertise

  • Revenue-generating entrepreneurial experience
  • Product management experience in both fast-growing consumer marketplaces and SaaS businesses with 100+ employees is a major plus.
  • Development of B2B products connecting to a marketplace platform (e.g. the supplier side of an e-commerce marketplace)

Compensation range

  • $150,000 - $160,000

For cash compensation, we set standard ranges for all U.S.-based roles based on function, level, and geographic location, benchmarked against similar stage growth companies. In order to be compliant with local legislation, as well as to provide greater transparency to candidates, we share salary ranges on all job postings regardless of desired hiring location. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors, including geographic location as well as candidate experience and expertise, and may vary from the amounts listed above.
