How you can help make a better world of work

We are looking for an experienced Director of Product to play a key role in leading our Platform. Culture Amp is in a significant period of growth, and our Platform teams play a critical part in this. We are heavily invested in scaling our foundational services, data and tooling to support our product teams and ultimately succeed in market.

In this role you will work within a cross-functional leadership team to take ownership of the strategy, roadmap and execution for our technical platform.

What you’ll spend time doing

  • Collaborate with top notch Product Managers, Designers, Engineers, and People Scientists to identify and execute on foundational services, data and tooling infrastructure to support our range of products.
  • Work side-by-side with the Platform leadership team to ensure our product, tech and design strategies are aligned to drive impactful outcomes.

  • A penchant for the more technical product challenges and a real love to serve and balance the needs of our product teams and end users.
  • A toolkit to draw on for defining products, such as skills in design-thinking, or lean validation
  • Curiosity and passion for people and culture. At heart, you're what we call a people geek!
  • Opinions on how to build product, including the processes and practices that help set teams up for success (such as lean development).
  • The ability to collaborate with diverse internal and external stakeholders to achieve shared understanding and vision.
  • Empathy for those you work with and mentor, and a drive to build and foster highly-effective teams.

We believe that our employees are the heartbeat of our success. We're committed to fostering a work environment that truly cares for and develops its people, and creates lasting positive impact. In addition to providing a competitive compensation package, some of the key benefits we offer are:

  • Employee Share Options Program: We empower you to be an owner in Culture Amp and share in our success
