Action Builder Product Manager

We have a relatively new platform, Action Builder - a tool built from the ground up for organizing and leadership development. Working with our development partners, including the AFL-CIO, we drew on time-tested tools organizers have used for decades, from wall charts and flip charts to notebooks and three-ring binders. Action Builder is a mobile-first tool that puts time-tested organizing tools right in your pocket. Our user base is predominantly labor unions, national organizing coalitions and local organizing groups. 
We are seeking a creative and thoughtful individual to join our team as a Product Manager. We’re looking for candidates that align with our mission of creating authentic and substantive relationships with our partners to help them fully realize their program goals of building progressive power through an efficacious utilization of our tools. 

This position will be responsible for coming up with new features, soliciting feature feedback from our partners, and managing our cooperative development process, particularly for Action Builder.  In this role, the selected candidate will be responsible for tracking new feature ideas, facilitating a quarterly collaborative prioritization process with our product development committee and writing thorough specs for each feature. The selected candidate will also help research and develop ideas that are raised by partners and develop a perspective on how to best positively impact the growth and development of the toolset.

The Product Manager will work closely with our Director of Impact, Director of Product Strategy, Director of Technology and our Product Development Committee partners - affiliates of the AFL CIO and People’s Action. 

This full-time position will report to the Director of Product. This is a remote position.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Identifying potential new product features
  • Develop a thorough understanding of the toolset and product use cases
  • Work with existing partners and members of our development committee to identify areas the toolset can grow
  • Develop ideas into draft specs, to allow for successful prioritization

Facilitate our Cooperative Development Process

  • Facilitate quarterly prioritization meetings to identify which features will be built
  • Build thorough specs to ensure the vision comes to life
  • Work with the Director of Technology to prioritize development work and hone and refine specs as needed

Measure & Refine

  • Work with the impact team to identify areas of opportunity
  • Actively solicit feedback on new features

It would be great if you had
  • Experience creating and managing tickets in JIRA
  • Engineering experience, with AWS, PostgreSQL, GraphQL and/or Angular
