My startup is hiring! If you’re interested in working at a Silicon Valley startup, read on…
Last week, I wrote about life at the startup I co-founded, PBwiki. We’re based in San Mateo, CA (near San Francisco) and offer free lunches, free espresso, 32895123 energy drinks, stock options, and more. See more about life at PBwiki.
We’re hiring two positions, with some special perks:
- $1,000 referral bonus. If you refer us someone that we eventually hire, we’ll pay you $1,000 in cash. Hell, if you’re in the Bay Area, I’ll even deliver it myself. Refer yourself if you want! Or send this post to your friends. (The person has to stick around PBwiki for at least six months.)
- $1,000 for a K-12 classroom. If we hire someone from the iwillteachyoutoberich post, we’ll also donate $1,000 to a US-based classroom for supplies or a special project. And we’ll include your name in the press release/announcement.
- We’ll pay for your moving expenses. We’ll pay relocation expenses for extraordinary candidates (we once shipped 3 cats from the East coast). So if you’re not in the Bay Area, don’t worry.
I wrote earlier about how well things are going at PBwiki.
So, if you’re interested in working at a startup, read on…
Have you ever used a breathtakingly simple and clean web application, and immediately started wondering how it was built? Did you start calculating the tradeoffs in the product and guess at the future product roadmap?
If so, we’d like to talk to you.
The product manager is a senior part of the PBwiki team who works to define what the product should include. In other words, the product manager collects inputs from the executive team, marketing, sales, support, and engineering to define the scope of PBwiki. S/he will also be customer-focused, communicating and collecting user requests and understanding key customer pain points. And the product manager will understand the competitive landscape to build a better product.
The ideal Product Manager will be deeply familiar with SaaS environments and their unique properties, have a technical background, have experience in startup-style environments, understanding how to sketch out storyboards of feature implementations in conjunction with Engineering, and ideally even be able to bang out crude prototypes. Preference will be given to candidates with 3+ years experience in Product Management.
