For one of our startups we are looking for an experienced Product Manager that has a good sense of product management. Do you get a kick to see something cool evolve out of chaos? Then this is the job for you!
Tolq works with international brands like Bol.com, MediaMarkt, Porsche and many others to power their international sales and marketing with our state-of-the-art localisation platform.
We are accepting applications for the next two months and we fill the open position as soon as we’ve found the right candidate.
About the Position
As a Product Manager you will be assigned to work on one of our products and be responsible for the performance of the entire product/service. This means you’ll have to work across all the disciplines required to run a product and you work directly with the CEO.
You’ll work in a fast-paced, and ever-changing environment where you can really add value.
This is what that looks like:
Strategy & Organisation
You work with the CEO on figuring out the optimal value proposition and product positioning.
You work with designers and developers to create the best possible product that delivers the value proposition to the market. You hand-on test the product as much as often to be sure what we deliver is awesome.
This is where we promote the product/service. You work with the copywriter and manage the campaigns. You live for the metrics and make data based decisions.
Closing the deal. You also close deals yourself because you want to be in touch with the market we’re working on.
This is where we deliver the product/service to the customer. You make sure they get to the ‘Aha’-moment as soon as possible. You watch the retention and engagement metrics all the time.
We use the product/market-fit model to tweak the product and learn how to create optimal product/market fit.
Tolq wants to eliminate language borders and to do that we’ve built a lot of technology that makes it easier for companies to translate their content. Our clients range from MediaMarkt to Belvilla and many others.
We are remote-first and local in The Hague.
We have an open ‘startup-like’ mentality and are a software company from origin.
What else can you expect from us?
- Enthusiastic and fun colleagues
- Startup mentality and possibilities
- Friday afternoon drinks and/or (theme)parties (when Covid allows)
You can expect a mindful onboarding process with ramp-up and time to learn. You can expect a team that listens, and to be heard. You can expect to give and provide direct feedback. You can expect to be counted on. You can expect to do your best work and build a career here.
We build our apps, our teams, and our company for the long haul, with a strong eye to other teams’ effectiveness & happiness, from design to support and operations. A healthy, resilient app starts with a healthy, resilient organization.
We are looking for someone who is ready for this challenge with a getting things done work spirit.
