About Panther
Panther is the all-in-one platform to employ and pay global teams. We take care of all the heavy lifting involved in international hiring, payroll, benefits, and compliance, so companies can employ incredible people from around the world, and let their employees work from anywhere — without any of the red tape. 
Some of Silicon Valley’s sharpest minds are funding us to be the bedrock of global, distributed teams. We’re funded by Tribe Capital, Addition Capital, Eric Ries, Soma Capital, and founders and executives from Stripe, InVision, SpaceX, Plaid, Drift, Fast, and more.
Panther is seeking an experienced Director of Product with product taste, crisp communication skills, and a grand vision to represent product on Panther's executive team, drive product strategy, and create a world class product management discipline.

About you

  • You are customer-centric, obsessed about the customer and their problems. You are empathetic toward the user experience, know how to talk to customers, understand pain points, and think creatively about the job to be done.
  • You are a structured thinking, and can leverage frameworks for everything. While you might be pulled in many different directions across Panther, you are able to clearly define goals and prioritize projects against those. You organize everything and never drop the ball.
  • You have a bias towards shipping products that move metrics. Actions are stronger than words. Ideas are cheap — execution is what matters. You have high agency and never make excuses. You are able to break down problems into small pieces and make progress.
  • You are a crisp communicator, prepared to communicate controversial trade-offs to a diverse group of coworkers and external parties and get buy in.

Good to have

  • Technical: can earn the respect of engineers and make decisions. You don't need a CS degree, but if you can understand core concepts like APIs, FE/BE, and data structures, that's a huge plus.
  • Analytical: can use data to make decisions and measure impacts. You don't mind getting your hands dirty writing SQL and looking at logs. Most importantly, you can communicate ideas and impact with data.
  • Collaborative: can build bridges between teams. While you work across Panther to transform ideas into reality, the ability to know how to work with people of all backgrounds, earn their trust, and empower them to do their best work is a huge plus.
  • Strategic: can influence company-level strategy. PMs are business leaders. The product you build must create business value, so you should understand the market dynamics and how to prioritize. Formulate a compelling vision for the product.
  • Intellectually honest approaching decision-making as rationally as possible. You are not afraid to show vulnerability or admin when you are wrong or don't know something.
BonusA superpower: you have a spike in an adjacent area (eng, design, data, strategy, marketing, growth, etc). and bring something new that makes you dangerous.
Why You Might Be Excited About Us- 100% remote-first, global team: we’re committed to talent, not location, and we believe in trust and autonomy- 2x annual team retreats (when we start traveling again)- It’s life-work balance, here: not the other way around- Everyone’s an owner: stock options for a team that helps Panther grow- Make a difference: help us build a future where talented people from around the world have access to flexible jobs that help them earn a great living
Why You Might Not Be Excited About Us- Intensity: We are a young company with < 50 people, so if you like more established companies with a plethora of resources, this role isn’t for you- Change: Change is good; in fact, if we are not changing, we are not growing fast enough- Ambiguity: You should be comfortable with a sprinkle of chaos. This is not the kind of job where you show up and are told exactly what to do every day
Benefits and Perks- competitive salary- stock options- unlimited PTO with recommended minimums- employee benefits- private health insurance- 2x annual team retreats (when we start traveling again)
LocationLive anywhere in the world. Seriously. Try a new country every month, or work from the beaches of Bora Bora for all we care :)
