Senior Product Manager

Website Frontastic

Front end service for API

Overview

Frontastic is looking for a Senior Product Manager (f/*/m) to join the team on a full-time basis (min. 80% FTE). We’re a remote first company currently operating in the Europe/Berlin timezone. We’ll consider applications from candidates in Europe (UTC to UTC+2).

We’re a remote first company with regular in-person meetings. We make intensive use of tools like Slack or video conferencing. We try to find a good balance between focused work and communication or in other words between asynchronous and personal communication. There are no fixed expectations regarding working hours, it’s normal for us to take care of private matters during the day – e.g. visits to the doctor or picking up children from school.

Our team strives to improve themselves following these guidelines:

  • We offer a friendly learning environment and try hard not to blame anyone for not knowing something and actively encourage mentoring of your peers.
  • We use practices like pair programming, test driven development when it makes sense and continuously refactor our code to constantly share knowledge and keep the amount of technical debt low.
  • The same goes for us as a company, we continuously refactor our rules and guidelines. Overall, we have a very transparent, helpful, warm, familiar employee culture.

We’re an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. If we receive job applications from yet underrepresented groups those applications will be preferred where multiple candidates have the same score.

You may notice that there is no salary listed here. This is intentional, we want to hire the best talent possible, and will consider all applications on their individual merit. Since we currently work from 12 different countries (and counting), it’s very difficult to offer consistent benefits beyond this.
