Product Manager

Do you want to work in a fast growing international startup while being responsible for managing a product aimed at impacting entrepreneurs in emerging markets?

Who we are

Seedstars is a global organization with headquarter in Switzerland and a presence in 70+ emerging markets. We are on a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship.

About Seedstars App

The Seedstars App serves as a gateway to the different Seedstars products that we are currently running, and also as the main online networking space for our global community spread around the world. Currently in its MVP version, we are looking for a person who will help us turn it into a vibrant networking and mentoring tool for the different events we are organising.

About the job

Your main objective for the Product Manager will be to tackle the challenge of bringing our offline community online, and make the app the key networking tool our global community will use to connect with the right people they need (whether organically or through targeted introductions).

At the same time, the App serves as an event app to allow the attendees of our events and programs get all the most up-to-date information about the events, rate the quality of our speakers and mentors we bring and sign up for the different sessions and workshops we are running throughout the world.
