Draftbit (YC W18) Is Hiring a Technical Product Lead – Build Apps Visually

Chicago · San Francisco · Remote

About Draftbit

At Draftbit, we believe that software should be a democratizing agent that makes it possible for anyone to turn their app ideas into reality.

Draftbit is a collaborative product development tool, focused on mobile apps. Our platform allows technical and non-technical teams to work together to build native mobile apps. Apps built in Draftbit produce high quality React Native code that can be exported at any time so you can build inside and outside our platform.

Backed by world-class investors (including Y Combinator), we have aggressive growth goals and are looking for a teammates to help us achieve our vision.

About the Position

We’re looking for the first Product Manager to join our small but fast-growing team. Since you know the PM role differs greatly across companies, here’s how we’re thinking about this opportunity:

  • This is our first product hire and a we’re a sub-20 person team.
  • We recognize it’ll be a tough needle to thread to find the right person that both has similar product values & instincts as us, but also challenges our views and makes us better. To do this successfully, we’ll have to find someone who has been doing this long enough to develop their own POV, but isn’t particularly wedded to “one way.”
  • Our PM will take cues from our founding team on product vision and priorities, but should be capable of creating & defending their own roadmap, then inspiring others to back it.
  • Accountability on roadmap execution also falls to the PM – from all the micro decisions necessary to turn a story into a feature, to QA, to tight collaboration with design & engineering to ensure we are on track and on time.
  • Our community of makers and customers is the lifeblood of Draftbit and few roles at our company should have a closer relationship to, and understanding of, them than our PM.
  • Draftbit is part of an emerging & fast-growing category of no/low code products, and our PM should get to know this market intimately. They should be a resource of knowledge for our team, and bring that knowledge to bear in their roadmap construction.

About You

Our ideal Product Manager has experience with technical products, has an extreme attention to detail, concisely communicates complex concepts, and is an exceptional collaborator.

You’re probably a great fit if:

  • You’ve been a software engineer on a product team or managed a technical product
  • You have a high EQ who others would describe as the best collaborator on your team
  • You’ve likely been the go-to person on a team that everyone counts on to ensure things get done
  • You value self-management, execution (over perfection), speed, and personal reliability
  • You’re able to take an idea and run with it, rather than just following instructions
  • You’re comfortable working in a startup environment, probably because you’ve worked at one (bonus points if you’ve ever started/run a business before)
  • You’re excited about Draftbit and our mission. We want people who bring new ideas to the table and care about what they are building.

Additional Details

At Draftbit, we believe that software should be a democratizing agent that makes it possible for anyone to turn their app ideas into reality.
