Coinsquare

Posted 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Location: Toronto
Employment Type: Full Time
As a Director of Product, you will shape the product strategy and evolution for Coinsquare’s retail investor applications. This is a multi-faceted, fast-paced role within a company that is starting to scale its people, processes, and product suite. In keeping with this, we’re looking for a multidisciplinary thinker who can handle a range of activities including strategy creation, people mentorship, improving Agile work processes, and ensuring coherent product roadmapping. Coinsquare is rapidly evolving its approach to Product Management, which means you’ll play a central role in reinforcing a customer-centric culture, promoting Agile work practices, and elevating the presence of Product within the organization.

What you'll do

  • Strongly advocate the importance of product-centric decision making and actively promote a customer-focused approach to product management.
  • Shape best practices and elevate organizational expectations as we grow and scale our Product team.
  • Strategically review Coinsquare’s pre-existing suite of products and create forward-looking strategy based on landscape mapping and customer preference data points.
  • Own, develop and execute against customer-centric roadmaps and release plans, establishing key value indicators and timelines.
  • Mentor and coach Product Managers and Product Squads on best approaches to Agile processes, story writing, roadmapping, and sprint planning. 
  • Determine and effectively communicate product priorities in terms of business value to both customers and internal stakeholders- most critically when competing priorities seem to conflict.
  • Foster collaborative relationships with cross functional teams within Coinsquare and with external partners.
  • Measure, track, and report on key metrics of product success, including revenue and customer satisfaction.

Requirements

  • 8-10 years of product management experience using Agile work processes. A CSPO certification or related designation is a definite plus.
  • Proven experience creating and clearly communicating product-focused strategy to an executive level audience.
  • Experience working with consumer-facing trading, financial services, or crypto applications.
  • Willingness and ability to change gears and move from macro strategy and roadmapping to more granular activities such as story writing or troubleshooting.
  • A business-first mindset with an ability to connect business goals to product goals.
  • Experience crafting success metrics for new feature releases and monitoring the health of existing features.
  • Ability to influence stakeholders and build consensus.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to successfully lead and develop a team of product managers.
