Float is the world’s leading resource planner, helping teams at brands such as Airbnb, Buzzfeed and Ogilvy better plan and manage their time.

Our growing team of twenty-four are made up of engineers, product designers, marketing and customer success folks in more than eight countries.

Description of the job

Why We’re Hiring For This Role

As the workplace decentralizes, increasingly moving toward hybrid and remote policies, Float is fast becoming the default solution to centralize who’s working on what, when and where.

We’ve established a strong, sustainable product-market fit. Our customers love us for our simple, visual solution to team planning and time management. We have a mature platform including mobile apps, dedicated integrations, security settings and support.

The result? Our customer base is growing rapidly, with hundreds and thousands of users, across our resource planning and time tracking products.

As such, we now have more opportunities to learn from our customers. We’ve made tremendous headway in the evolution of our insights team, to gather quantitative data, speak with our customers, and answer our questions.

We’re seeking a Senior Product Manager experienced in asking those questions, distilling insights, ideating and delivering beautifully elegant features that continue our trend of simple and visual. We believe we have the foundations, and ambition, to be a category leader in a maturing market with uncapped potential. We’re seeking folks that are motivated to help define the future of team planning for teams around the world.

Our CEO, Glenn, explains the important role you will play within our Product team. Watch this video.
You’ll be working asynchronously with a bright, dedicated team from across the globe, with a strong focus on taking complex problems and creating solutions that feel simple and intuitive for our customers.

What You’ll Be Responsible For

You’ll primarily be focused on our web application and mobile app user experience. You’ll pair with another seasoned Senior Product Manager, whose focus is on scale initiatives and managing our integration family.

Early on, you’ll collaborate closely with our User Experience Lead to understand our customers, and the current challenges and opportunities. You’ll gain familiarity with our production process, and help deliver on projects already in flight.

From there, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate on studies to validate ideas, and gather insights. You’ll start to form ideas and document proposals to inform our roadmap.

Potential projects may include:
  • Designing solutions for notifying teams who are in the office and who are working remotely
  • Defining a ‘home’ destination for team members that delivers what’s important to them, including upcoming milestones and requests.
  • Delivering a world-class onboarding experience to enable teams of any size to roll out Float with ease

What You’ll Need To Be Successful

To be successful in this role, you will be able to demonstrate experience in being:
  • Accountable for ideating and executing product features that are simple, visual, and scalable across a global customer base
  • Comfortable working with insights and customer success teams to ask questions and seek answers to inform product decisions
  • Understanding the basics of data structure and how APIs work
  • Writing proposals and specifications for product features
  • Pairing with experienced design teams with a high value on visual design
  • Improving existing practices and processes that help a Product team learn and scale
As a fully remote team, we’re looking for someone who thrives with long blocks of time for deep work, and where asynchronous is the default form of communication. Don’t worry—you will have significant deep work time since we have very few meetings.

Why Join Us

We’re a global company with a diverse team of folks from all over the world who share a common belief in living our best work life. That includes a flexible asynchronous policy that allows you to work whenever you work best, minimal meetings, annual team meetups, and perks and benefits that support your personal health and well-being.

Our growing range of perks and benefits include:
  • Home office expense budget
  • Co-working expense budget
  • Health & fitness budget
  • Annual team meetup
  • Care for your community donation or leave
We understand that you probably want to learn a bit more about us as well, so here are some resources to get a sense of who we are and how we work:

Note: Industry research shows that women and those in traditionally underrepresented groups generally don’t apply to jobs unless they check all the boxes for the role. If you feel strongly that you have what it takes for this role but don’t check 100% of the boxes—that’s okay—we encourage you to apply anyway and highlight what you can bring to the table.

Hiring Process For This Role

You’ll find a lot of useful information about our interview process and what it’s like to join our global team on the Float careers page. The hiring process for this role looks like this:
  • Initial First Meeting: If your application is shortlisted, you will have a 15-minute meeting with Linda from People Ops. This meeting gives us an opportunity to learn more about your experience and also allows you to ask any questions you have about the role.
  • Technical Interview: You’ll meet with Glenn, CEO, for a technical interview. This is generally a 45-minute interview that will take a deep dive into your design skills and experience.
  • Team Interview: We take a very collaborative approach to hiring, so you’ll meet with Tony (Senior Product Manager) and Cam (Product Design Lead), for a 45-minute interview.
Our hiring process takes an average of 25 days from the first interview to a job offer (based on 2021 data). Linda from People Ops will be in touch each step of the way to ensure that you are well informed and aware of the next step in the process.

Unfortunately, due to the high volume of applications, we can only contact candidates who have been shortlisted for the role. If you do not hear from us within 14 days of submitting your application, we encourage you to apply for another role in the future.
