Strike's mission is to build a more connected financial world.

Strike allows users to send and receive money anywhere, instantly, with no added fees. Strike is built on top of the Bitcoin network – the largest global, interoperable and open payments standard. Strike believes that open payment networks enable universal participation in the financial system, ushering in a new digital economy with truly borderless money transfers. Strike leverages Bitcoin’s open payment network to offer users the first global peer-to-peer payments app and a novel bitcoin-native payments experience.

Role:

We are looking for an exceptional and experienced Director of Product to lead, define, and deliver the Commerce platform at Strike. We’re looking for someone who is passionate about creating a commerce experience and API platform that empowers and delights merchants and developers as they enter and participate in a bitcoin-native, superior financial experience. 

Merchants have not seen innovation with the existing credit card networks since 1949. But they deserve better. Strike recently announced partnerships with the biggest names in payments, such as ecommerce giant Shopify and then world’s largest point-of-sale supplier NCR, to change this and bring merchants into a superior payments experience.

On the developer side, most existing payment protocols involve integration with several third parties, complicated financial jargon, and months of onboarding time before processing an initial payment. With Strike’s API, developers will be able to process free, instant, global payments within minutes, jargon-free.

You will be working with cross-functional teams and external partners like NCR and Blackhawk to set priorities, build/execute roadmaps, define requirements, and optimize the Commerce product’s market and technical potential. You should have a demonstrated history of new Product Development and continuous in-service differentiation through product evolution and extension.

Responsibilities:

  • Act as the "voice of the customer" for our Commerce Platform to develop and execute strategy
  • Support defining minimum viable product (MVP) and analyzing feasibility, cost ramifications, economies, and other aspects of planned or potential programs
  • Develop product requirements, rollout plans, and participate in team demos and retrospectives
  • Grow and scale the team
  • Engage the team and gain alignment regarding product strategy and business outcome with focus on continuous improvement
  • Work with leadership, product, engineering, and design to formulate a vision and roadmap
  • Identify areas of differentiation to create great experiences for our merchants and developers
  • Provide a business perspective when evaluating product investment decisions

Requirements:

  • 6+ years of Product Management experience
  • Deep understanding and experience with API products and/or payment products
  • Ability to depict complex ideas, issues and designs to varied audiences
  • Ability to influence a diverse group of stakeholders through strong leadership skills
  • Ability to make business and product decisions under pressure on daily basis, and to own the outcome
  • Exceptional quantitative and qualitative data analysis skills to gain insight into product needs and generate ideas
  • A highly experimental mindset to drive innovation amidst uncertainty or ambiguity (e.g., new processes, teams, systems)
  • Vast experience working with designers and user researchers
  • Empathy to work with a diverse array of cross functional peers and stakeholders
  • Resourcefulness, pragmatism and roll-up the sleeves mentality
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Knowledge of Agile development methodologies
  • Experience and interest for Bitcoin and Fintech is a plus

We do not make hiring decisions based on educational history whatsoever. Our founder is a college dropout. We employ high school dropouts, PhD candidates and everything in-between. We do not hire credentials. We simply hire talented, passionate individuals who are excited to be a part of our team.
