  • Leverage approaches that can be used across a diverse set of partners, countries, and regions.
  • Lead with a data-driven approach and design research strategies to test proposed solutions cost-effectively to minimize risk while continuing to learn and deliver incremental value.
  • Establish and track measurable goals and objectives to ensure the product strategy is solving customer problems.
  • Maintain a robust product backlog, ruthlessly prioritizing the most important changes.
  • Work cross-functionally with the Design, Engineering, Data, Growth, Business Development, Marketing and Operations teams to align product efforts across the company.

  • You seek to clearly understand and articulate a problem and you are deeply curious before you consider a solution.
  • You are data-driven and know how to test new ideas using rapid prototypes, A/B testing, and other research approaches.
  • You are customer-centric, well-versed in design thinking, Agile software development methodologies, and know how to build products incrementally.
  • You can manage a roadmap that has a range of initiatives.
  • You have experience managing large, cross-functional team projects.
  • You have excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • You have a passion for GlobalGiving’s vision, mission, and commitment to our core values

Salary + Benefits

Starting salary range: $90 - $100K.

Benefits include flexible work hours, remote work options, 5 weeks of paid time off per year, professional development opportunities, and a meaningful job where you can go home at night and say, "Today, my work helped 182 girls go to school for a year."
