Opportunity: Product Growth Consultant

We’re looking for an impact-minded product manager to help us grow Permission Slip, a mobile app that helps users take back control of the data companies have about them. In this consulting assignment, you will help us realize Permission Slip’s potential by collaborating on a best-in-class product that advocates for consumers, increases the public’s awareness of how technology works, and enhances our collective privacy and power. 

This assignment will involve running day-to-day product operations for the Permission Slip team for 4-6 months, helping us meet ambitious growth and engagement goals. You’ll learn a lot about product innovation at non-profit enterprises, and work with multi-disciplinary, cross-functional colleagues to bring great product experiences to life.

What you will do: 

  • Coordinate engineering, design, marketing and user research to deliver on a redesigned home screen experience in Permission Slip.
  • Revisit Permission Slip’s user onboarding flow to reduce drop-off rates. 
  • Propose and help implement a strategy that promotes adoption of Permission Slip and regular engagement with the app. Growth levers could include push notifications, automatic requests to data brokers, and more.
  • Liaise with and provide feedback for external vendors and contractors, helping the team deliver high quality work and make deadlines.
  • Help shepherd new releases and coordinate QA on new versions of the app to ensure high-quality experiences for Permission Slip users.
  • Facilitate brainstorming sessions for Permission Slip and help shape the app’s future direction. 

About You

  • You have at least two years of experience in software product development or early stage technology companies. While you do not need to have previous experience as a product manager specifically, you should have demonstrated success in driving consumer-facing software to completion.
  • You care about users and are always looking for ways to enhance and improve their product experiences.
  • You are data-driven with a strong focus on defining and building towards clear success metrics.
  • You have experience designing, building, and shipping excellent products. 
  • You have led cross-functional teams to achieve key product objectives. 
  • You’re a master communicator, skilled at articulating a clear vision, motivating teams, and navigating organizations to bring ideas to life. 
  • You bring a passion for privacy, digital rights, responsible technology, or human-centered design.
