Job Description

Are you a product leader who can uplift our product management practices throughout the whole product lifecycle? Can you ensure that we're delivering high-quality products that we need to get into the hands of our customers? If so, we'd love to speak with you!
Our Product Managers don't just manage products, we advocate for our customers, question and identify their problems, and put together purposeful roadmaps to solve them. We validate ideas, involve the entire business in their development and know-how to distribute them to the right people.
After 20+ years we still have our first employees, first resellers, and first customers. Our success is not measured by profits and business metrics, but instead by the impact we've had on our 110 million users across 70,000 organisations in 195 countries. We're engineering-driven and fuelled by coffee. We build things that make a difference to our planet and have fun doing it.

Some of the things you'd do...

  • You'll ensure that all our product managers are adopting end-to-end product thinking, from ideation to launch, and including the right experts at the right time along the way.
  • You'll get to know our unique channel ecosystem inside out to understand their needs, inspire them to be advocates of our products, and align product roadmaps for mutual benefit.
  • You'll use your eye for high-quality software products to ensure that our multidisciplinary teams are delivering products that delight our customers.
  • You'll participate in our learning culture, sharing your knowledge of product management and other skills amongst the organisation.

What success looks like 6 months in...

  • You've created a measurable definition of what a success means across multiple products, but are nimble enough to adapt this throughout the product lifecycle.
  • You understand our current approach to product management, and have begun to uplift these practices in multiple aspects of the this lifecycle.
  • You're engaging with our channel ecosystem and have begun to identify opportunities to closer align our product roadmap with those of our partners'.
  • You share progress and promote our products widely. You enjoy sharing your knowledge and are happy to working with technical teams and the wider business.

Balance beyond COVID-19...

  • During COVID-19 and restrictions allowing, PaperCutters are working flexibly - spending some time in the office and some at home as we look to transition to a hybrid model longer-term.
  • Our Camberwell office location is central without being in the city, only a minute's walk from the train station and easily accessible by car.
  • When in the office, you can enjoy unlimited coffee from our in-house espresso machine and drink it in alongside an outstanding view of the city from our outdoor deck.
  • To ensure that everyone (remote or in the office) feels equally included, we're proud to offer both in-office and virtual wellness and social activities such as weekly yoga, Friday brekkie, nibbles and drinks, soccer and more.
  • We're also open to flexible arrangements you might appreciate, so please don't hesitate to highlight this during your application.
