Product Manager

Chicago, IL

WHO ARE YOU?

Moonrise is seeking a seasoned Product Manager to lead a newly formed product team. While we have an existing product, thousands of active users and robust user research, and we want you to take it to the next level. Your insights and decisions will help our team hone in on our target users, then enhance user engagement and expand market reach. You are motivated by creating sticky, usable, elegant products that provide a high-demand service to users. You love wearing ‘all the hats’ (data analyst, business analyst, QA, project manager) and you know when to put each one on in a given day. You believe in using customer data and user-focused research to identify feature opportunities and ideate solutions to problems rather than relying on popular opinion. You love trying out new ideas and know how to behave when they fail or succeed. Most importantly, you know that you don’t have all the answers and need to work and communicate with engineering, marketing, operations and others to get stuff done. You are passionate about helping underserved Americans that are living paycheck to paycheck. You are not afraid to constructively call out when things are not working right. You push back in an effective way that does not limit the team's creativity and also offer elegant ways to solve the problem at hand. You understand the trade-offs between moving fast and resilience and know when to lean more heavily towards one or the other. You enjoy working in a very ambiguous environment. You accept change and moving deadlines with ease and are okay jumping hurdles. Most of all, you love to help others!

WHO ARE WE?

Moonrise is a digital platform that matches financially challenged individuals in need of extra income with reputable companies in need of reliable workers to fill shifts. We are a social impact startup fully owned and supported by American Family Insurance. We were built with an ambitious goal: to innovate in a way that would help working families—many of them existing customers of The General, part of the American Family enterprise—that need a financial cushion in case of the unexpected. We traveled the country listening to financially vulnerable Americans and believe we can solve their deepest pain point – easy access to supplementary income.
