Senior Product Manager

  • Saltside builds leading online marketplaces in underserved markets while creating sustainable value for the community. We operate the top classified sites in Sri Lanka (ikman.lk), Bangladesh (Bikroy.com), and Ghana (Tonaton.com). We’re a distributed company with about 600 employees spread across many locations.

We are looking for a Senior Product Manager to join our Product Development (PD) organization. The entire PD organization works remotely and has team members in multiple countries. This role will be remote too, however, we are primarily looking for candidates based out of Sri Lanka. You can be based out of your own home, ikman.lk’s office in Colombo, or a combination thereof.

In this role, you will be working across all our platforms and markets. We offer a challenging environment with other bright minds that have a strong passion for technology and product development. At Saltside you’ll be exposed to working with many different countries, user groups, and problem domains.

Who we are looking for

At Saltside, who you are is important - but never limiting. Our team represents people of different origins, sex, religions, and beliefs, and our mission is simple: we want to create sustainable value in underserved markets.

Below are some characteristics we’re looking for in you:

  • You are able to think about the product from all angles and at all levels. Product Managers on our team are product savants that move seamlessly between talking about our product strategy (market analysis, customer experience) and discussing minor product details (isn’t the size of this button a little too small?).
  • We strongly believe in letting the facts decide, so you’d need to be a wizard in putting supporting data together for your ideas. You will also need to master the art of painting a vision and connecting it with practical product changes that move us toward the end goal.
  • You have strong opinions on most product-related things but are willing to listen to other perspectives as well. In other words, you have strong opinions, weakly held.
  • You have at least 5 years of experience as a Product Manager and preferably have some type of background working in the classifieds or e-commerce industry.
  • You have experience launching multiple consumer-facing features and have an eye for design.
  • It’s a great advantage if you have worked with remote stakeholders and engineering teams. No matter where you are in the world, someone at Saltside will be remote to you.

Responsibilities

  • Working with ideation and product innovation across our products and markets - this is a very broad responsibility that will expose you to many new aspects of the business
  • Take end-to-end ownership and responsibility for identifying market requirements, getting stakeholder buy-in, drive the implementation and help with the product roadmap
  • Improve product market share and champion the growth in all our markets
  • Help setting up and delivering on product KPIs
  • As a senior member of the Product Team, you may also mentor other Product Managers
  • Communicate and collaborate with stakeholders outside as well as inside the Product Development organization
  • Some travel is expected in this role

What we offer

  • A fully remote work environment with your own budget for your home office
  • The chance to work on a product that is changing the lives of millions of user
  • A flat organization with an informal environment that offers lots of opportunities to learn and grow
  • Regular team outings and fun activities (physical and virtual)
  • Competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package
