Our mission is to enable budget-conscious consumers to earn additional income from their everyday habits. We accomplish this with an Android app and smartphone that pay users to listen to music, charge their phone, play games, complete surveys; and connect them with exclusive deals to save and earn even more.
We’ve grown our product by several multiples in the last year: over 500,000 people earn on Current daily, we’re approaching $1M in monthly payouts to users, and are maintaining positive margins at an 8-figure revenue run rate.
Our product team is 30 people strong and is made up of cross-functional pods that own specific areas of Current. Each pod has a Product Manager, Engineers, and a Designer, and together, they rally around their pillar of Current. They are responsible for solving the hardest problems our users and business face and delivering great product experiences. Our team members are constantly pushing each other to grow and take every opportunity to learn from each other. At the same time, each team member has full ownership over their work and is a leader on their team.
The rapid growth has degraded our customer experience. Our team previously was able to respond to customer questions and perform manual work to keep Current moving. These systems no longer work – our team cannot keep up, and our customer experience is suffering, resulting in churn. The industry benchmarks also indicate that investing in new customers is between 5 and 25 times more expensive than retaining existing ones. Therefore, once acquired, we should make every effort to not let the user drop off. We are creating a dedicated product team to help us reduce churn and scale further.
Our mission is to eliminate customer friction throughout the product. We aim to do this by building systems for users to resolve their own questions and problems, and wherever possible automatically resolve them.
You will ultimately be responsible for the team’s roadmap, but some near-term initiatives include: profile management to allow users to easily change details, order tracking to see the status of their fulfillment, account verification to reduce fraud checks, and improve error communication throughout the product.
As a Product Manager, you’ll lead all projects for your cross-functional team. You’ll be the expert in your team’s area of Current and be responsible for identifying the biggest weaknesses/opportunities, hypothesizing solutions, rallying the team to build them, measuring performance, and iterating.
This is a remote-first role, with an annual salary of $80k-115k USD.
The interview process is normally a 30-minute phone screen, a 1-hour product skills phone interview, and a 2/3-hour virtual onsite interview with engineering, product, leadership, and operations.
Current is committed to learning, exploring new ideas & alternatives, and is united by curiosity. We are results-driven, use OKRs to guide us on our decisions, and emphasize goal accomplishment.
Leadership does not necessarily mean management. Everyone is a leader, no matter the role. Taking pride in your responsibilities, finding & executing solutions is key.
The best solutions start with everyone understanding the problem and its impact. We’ve found that if someone understands the ‘why’, they will produce an innovative ‘what’ and ‘how’. If we cannot explain the ‘why’ clearly, we don’t understand the problem ourselves.
Our work environment is a lighthearted & positive place where employees are united by humor and camaraderie; we believe laughter is a great way to uplift employee morale and form bonds with each other.
We drive innovation and push boundaries for all company activities while understanding that anything worth doing will have roadblocks. We set a new standard of worth for people’s time, data, and attention while rewarding what most other companies take.
We won’t thrive without recognizing others strengths. Listen and evolve together, helping and supporting each other for the sake of a collective goal.
