About the role:

Are you a customer-focused product manager and want to work at one of Seattle’s most successful startups? OfferUp is seeking a Principal Product Manager who is passionate about discovery, including personalization and search.  

The Discovery team owns core parts of the shopping experience, including homepage browse, keyword search, and filters. The team is tasked with delighting our shoppers by helping them discover what they’re looking for from the wide range of products available on OfferUp. Leveraging personalization and search algorithms, we put the right items in front of the right buyers to drive engagement and transactions.

We are looking for an excellent thinker with strong quantitative skills. Intellectual curiosity, ability to roll up one’s sleeves, and emotional intelligence are essential for this role. In addition, you need to have a passion for product development and be driven to grow and scale OfferUp forward through the inevitable ups and downs of an earlier stage tech company.

Here’s more of what you will get to do:

  • Define a critical piece of the discovery journey for millions of buyers each day, including which items are surfaced from our extensive catalog and how they are presented to the buyer
  • Collaborate closely with data science to improve personalization, recommendations, and search ranking
  • Develop a detailed product roadmap and execution schedule for the Discovery team
  • Lead end-to-end feature requirements through collaboration with designers, data scientists, engineers, support, marketing, and business leadership, including assessing the impact on buyer experience, business metrics, and LTV

You’ll thrive in this role if you have:

  • A driven, self-starter personality that thrives in a fast-paced environment, juggling multiple, competing priorities to create positive outcomes
  • Ability to think big and use sound judgment to break down complex problems and find simple, elegant solutions while balancing business and technical requirements
  • A track record of customer obsession and deep diving on quantitative and qualitative evidence channeled from real customers
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to communicate effectively with non-technical and technical audiences across all levels of the organization
  • 7+ years hands-on product management or equivalent experience building and delivering B2C or B2B products within a high-performance tech company
  • Experience with discovery, search and/or personalization 

OfferUp is changing the way people buy and sell locally and we’ve built a dynamic team to do it. To learn more about what it’s like to work at OfferUp, check out our blog: https://blog.offerup.com/tagged/culture

An Insider's view of OfferUp

What's something quirky about your company?

This may seem silly, but we have a 90lb MMA dummy our CEO bought and named Pat. On a daily basis, someone will take Pat and figure out creative ways to scare some folks in the office. How do I know? I am Pat.

What does your typical day look like?

One of the great things about OfferUp is that no two days look the same. The only thing you will see me do every day at the same time is plank at 3 p.m. with my team. Otherwise, who knows?

Software Development Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Like many engineers, one of my favorite parts of being in tech is using my creativity and logic to create something new, especially here at OfferUp where what we create has the ability to help the environment and enable people to support their own businesses.

What is your vision for the company?

OfferUp will continue to be the premier local mobile marketplace for buying and selling, but there will likely be more and better e-commerce opportunities with the onset of new delivery technologies. OfferUp has such unique purpose and is leading the transformation of how consumers buy and sell locally. I'm delighted to be a part of the team.

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work/life balance is fantastic at OfferUp, especially for a startup! Sure, there are some days you may need to stay late- but everyone is pitching in here and understands the importance of recharging and resetting.
