Job type: Full-time

Category: Product


We are looking for a Head of Product with expertise building vibrant social communities in well-loved consumer products. Heck, maybe you put in time making games that people are obsessed with. Whatever your path, you have many years of real life experience leading your team to exceptional results building impactful software.


We’re looking for someone willing to come in and try new things, understand what makes blockchain different and special, then lean into that. We work in a highly technical space so fluency is expected, but we don’t need you to be a blockchain expert  – we can get you there.


We need you to be a champion for your user, a trusted leader to your team, and an advocate for intelligent product thinking across the organization. We also need your experience - your best practices, data driven decision making and raw creativity in testing new channels, behaviours, and distribution hacks.


Every member of our team shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people to help us realize that vision. As our Head of Product, you’ll introduce a transformative new technology to a mass audience, join a pioneering project that’s shaping the future of decentralization, and pave the way for a community of talented developers and consumers to connect on chain. You’ll be working alongside an incredible team in our Vancouver office.


Dapper Labs team members are humble and curious entrepreneurs, builders, and tinkerers who share a passion to demystify blockchain technology and tap its potential to create change in the world. Our people are our greatest strength: our diverse crew flourishes in a distributed hierarchy where personal autonomy and professional growth are encouraged. We value our culture above else: regardless of where you came from, what you studied, or who you used to work for, your role here will necessitate both a high level of creativity and strategic thinking on complex issues. Everyone here is a founder, and no one fits in a box. We’re all driven by an insatiable thirst for learning and development, and that’s what brings us together.

What we’ll accomplish together:

Sketch and define a product roadmap to ship the vision, strategy, design, and execution of a two sided platform to support a thriving user-developer ecosystem.

Plan and build products that serve our developer community using best practices to increase user adoption, inform content creator workflow, and build an exceptional user experience.

Plan and build products and features that dramatically lower the barriers of blockchain accessibility for normal people all over the world.

Plan and build products and features that create compelling decentralized value for normal people all over the world.

A little about you:

10+ years of experience in Software or Gaming Product Management

Experienced in managing and coaching product team members

You can apply your skills across a variety of use cases.

We believe in processes and the power of planning, but you will often have to roll with the punches and prioritize the most impactful tasks on the fly.

Ideal candidates will have proven experience building and leading world-class teams, navigating complex strategic landscapes, and setting a culture for product quality that runs through every facet of their work.

Our hierarchy is very flexible, so while we prefer you to build a team, we are fine with strong individual contributors, especially if you have a rare specialty. We prefer full-time in Vancouver but are open to remote candidates and contractors.

You’ve built tools or products serving games (major bonus points here). You have technical know-how and an engineering background, so you can speak developer’s’ language. We work in a highly technical space so fluency is expected, but we don’t need you to be a blockchain expert – we can get you there.

Experience in gaming is a bonus but not required – we would equally value familiarity with payments, consumer and/or social platforms, and/or cryptocurrency.

Making product roadmaps gets you out of bed in the morning. 

Balancing resource constraints with a burning desire to build magnificent software in a complex and evolving landscape is your ideas of a good time.

You still argue about Yo!, have strong opinions on Secret and were perhaps obsessed with Stolen.

Mentoring brilliant young product minds warms your heart, already frigid from years of high stress product development.

A little about us:

Formed in February 2018, Dapper Labs was spun out of Axiom Zen to spread the benefits of decentralization through the power of play, fairness, and true ownership.

We welcome applicants of all backgrounds, regardless of race, colour, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or disability.

    Hi, I’m Brian, Director of Product at Customer.io,

    I’m looking for a Product Manager to join our team who gets excited about how product experiences continue beyond a company's web or mobile app. Every message, delivery, notification, and ad is part of a customer's product experience. I need you to come help us build the platform that enables those connected experiences.

    Our product development is done by squads: small groups of engineers, designers, and a product manager like you, focused on solving a customer problem. You’ll lead one of these squads and own major parts of our roadmap. From conception to far past delivery you'll stay close with our customers to understand the impact of your work.

    We will be accepting applications until June 2nd. There is no advantage to applying early, so take the time to put your best foot forward. Including a product portfolio is encouraged.


    About Customer.io

    At Customer.io we believe that businesses who create strong relationships with their customers will outperform the ones that don’t.

    We’re working to make Customer.io the default choice for any internet business to deliver great, automated customer experiences at scale. Customer.io is used by over 1200 businesses to create continuity after a person leaves a website or mobile app. Every message (receipts, win-backs, and onboarding) across every channel (email, push, sms and more) can be managed and measured in Customer.io.

    The work you do here will raise the bar for the everyday communications we all receive. It drives us crazy when we get useless emails and notifications that feel like spam from companies we admire. Our customers are marketers, growth hackers, and engineers who are dreaming up ideas for how to be genuine and personal in their messages to customers.


    What will you be doing?

    Collecting and analyzing tons of feedback from a variety of sources and identifying underlying user problems

    Pitching solutions to those user problems in close collaboration with designers and engineers

    Driving those solutions to production while keeping scope in check and validating progress with customers

    Partnering with marketing, sales, and support to implement anything needed (docs, blogs, presentations, etc) to ensure customers get value from features we ship

    Defining success metrics for features, reporting results after shipping, and proposing future iterations


    You’ll join a team of 6, including:

    Brian (that's me!), our Director of Product, to define a roadmap that balances customer problems, our strengths, and our market position.

    Kate and Brendan: your Product Management crew. You'll learn from them, teach them, and push each other to do the best work you've ever done.

    Ivana, Madeline, and Richard: 3 exceptional Product Designers. We set a high standard for the user experiences we create and the way they affect our customer's lives.

    An engineering team who is passionate about the product. They’ll help you get the details right and ensure it’s going to scale flawlessly.

    Colleagues in data, marketing, sales, and customer support. We’re a tight-knit company where you’ll get a stream of customer insight from a team who genuinely cares about giving our customers messaging superpowers.


    What will you bring to the table?

    You’ve seen what happens when a team gets aligned around the customer’s experience and are on a mission to help every team you work with achieve that understanding.

    Your north star is creating moments where customers hire your feature for their job to be done. Thousands of little things must to go right to produce those moments. To some it feels miraculous that everything lined up, but you know it’s no accident.

    You’re hungry to learn, and you love to ask “Why?” one more time. Whether it’s uncovering the true motivation of a customer or the root cause of a disagreement about priorities, you’re always curious and seeking to identify the piece that completes the puzzle.

    You’re an exceptionally organized and motivated person. You know what pieces need to come together to successfully run a software development process and make it your mission to help everyone around you keep focused and excited about the end goal.

    You take ownership of problems even when the next steps and solutions aren't yet clear. You’re looking to work with a startup where you’ll have a lot of freedom and be responsible for the impact you make. Working with folks in different timezones will be standard issue for you around here, so being able to stay determined, even when the answers aren’t in front of you, is essential.

    You are a proactive communicator. You strive to be articulate and empathetic in your interactions and believe in “working out loud” to share work early and helpfully. You’re an excellent written communicator who values clarity and brevity while avoiding jargon.


    Bonus! Not a requirement, but shout about it if you have experience with...

    Experience working on Marketing Tech or Ad Tech SaaS produts

    Using Customer.io or other marketing automation services in a previous role


    Why should you work with Customer.io?

    We're in a special moment as a company: small enough where you'll have a big impact as an individual, big enough to have resources to conquer ambitious goals as a team, yet calm about how we set growth goals.

    We are offering a starting salary between $90,000 - 110,000 USD depending on experience. Check out our career's page for more information on our great benefits and why you should come work with us!


    Diversity statement

    We want to build and maintain a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment where everyone has the opportunity to learn, mentor, and grow. We know that diverse teams make better products, and especially encourage applicants from underrepresented groups to apply — if you have any questions, please let us know via Twitter. We don’t want “culture fit”, but “culture add.” We want people with different backgrounds from the team we have today to bring their perspective and thoughtfulness to the work that we do and the culture we’re always working to build.


    Come join us!

    Apply below and be sure to add a prominent reference to a pigeon to your cover letter or portfolio. You'll just have to trust me: this is important, yet not serious at all.

    Aside from letting you know we received your application, we won't be in touch till after the June 2nd deadline. After that, we'll be in touch regularly to keep you informed about our progress.
