Associate Product Manager (Chicago/Remote)
AwardSpring is an established and fast-growing Software as a Service (SaaS) start-up that partners with colleges and foundations to help them award scholarships and grants. We focus on making a few things as easy as possible:
Our team is small, you will have considerable impact on the direction of product development and our ongoing roadmap. You’ll help deliver important new features for our scholarship management platform and lead an exciting project to add a major new product.
You will translate high-level product ideas into detailed requirements for the software development and QA teams. This will include working with our product manager, team, and customers to identify solutions for customer challenges. You must have a focus on ensuring the software is easy to understand and operate.
You’ll write detailed requirement documents, create mockups, and designs to bring ideas to life. You’ll consider the underlying technical infrastructure and product accessibility as cornerstones for anything we build. Ideally, you have significant design/UX experience, but not required.
You’ll participate in and help run stand ups and sprint planning meetings.
You’ll work closely with our support team to answer product questions and identify bugs in our production environments.
We’ll respect your time; we manage our own timelines with a focus on proper work/life balance for our team.
Salary: 80k-90k (negotiable)
