Senior Product Manager, Business / Core

| Chicago

About Us

Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we’re growing by leaps and bounds!

But we’re only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love Venmo, but we know there are lots of things we haven’t thought of to make the experience of using Venmo even more delightful and valuable. All that’s going to take a lot of figuring out. Let’s figure it out together!

Product at Venmo

At Venmo, we are creating a product that people love. We strive to create a delightful user experience while connecting the world and empowering people through payments. We are looking for intellectually curious people who want to be inspired and inspire others to change the world.

As a product manager with Venmo you will be part of the Product Development team where you will work closely with designers and engineers to help our users make simple, delightful, and connected payments.

We spend our days advancing Venmo’s mobile payments platform to exceed our users’ wants and needs, including those they haven’t yet articulated. We are data-driven by nature and guided by human-centered design principles. We learn from one another and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests. We're never completely done.

Product Manager, Business / Core Team

Venmo has millions of customers and we want to make that experience better every day.

We want you to be the tactical driver of the Core Product team by helping us perfect the customer experience by building what is right for our customers that increases revenues, decreases costs and keeps us in compliance. We need a roll up the sleeves product manager who has a keen interest in the business and tactically executing on key drivers all rooted in a great customer experience.

Your day will be filled with executing the roadmap and addressing all the product opportunities that come up on a weekly basis. Because we are a payments company, this team will also work with legal and compliance to keep our customers safe and secure.

On day one, you will be an individual contributor paired with a Senior product manager and will help define and execute the product strategy.

If you get excited by the following types of problems, then the Business / Core team will be an exceptional place for you.

  • How do we grow Instant Transfer revenue?

What We’re Looking For

  • Minimum 5 years as a Product Manager
