Stripe is a technology company that builds ecommerce infrastructure for the internet. Businesses of all sizes, new startups to larger companies like Yelp and Facebook use our software to accept payments and scale their businesses.
Product Operations builds the connective tissue between product and user-facing teams, increasing leverage, so that Stripe can ultimately deliver more value to more users, faster. As a Product Operations Manager, you’ll work directly with product management and engineering teams on the company’s top priority betas and launches. You’ll be responsible for building strong connections with user-facing teams (support, sales, account management, etc), ensuring a tight product feedback loop, and coordinating smooth, high-quality feature launches. In some cases, you will also work directly with top users, learning more about their use cases and problems as you help them get more out of the product. This is a highly cross-functional individual contributor role, and it will be a critical lever for us to deliver on our mission.
What you’ll do
- Drive top company priority user betas, launches, and global rollouts (in partnership with product marketing, user operations, account management, product training, and others).
- Own product launch readiness to ensure that user-facing teams are ready with the information and processes required to support new products.
- Collect, quantify & prioritize product-related challenges to be considered by product and engineering in future development. Uplevel the understanding of how the product is being used in the real world.
- Develop novel processes & tools and share your thought leadership on how to run efficient betas and launches at Stripe.
- Identify and actively build connections with relevant subject matter experts across the company to surface insights, to get them excited about what your team is building, and to pave the way for smoother future rollouts.
- Build partnerships, design feedback loops, and create coordination points with regional go-to-market and product teams.
