Director Of Product & Technologies

Vancouver, BC, Canada · Full Time

When it comes to our health, knowing and having access to the right options can mean the difference between life or death.

Discover Therapies is a digital health company that gives patients unprecedented access to breakthrough treatments and health research to not only improve their health and wellbeing but to help accelerate research in order to find cures. Currently we are working directly with doctors and patients for Crohn’s and colitis research this year, but we have our sights set on all diseases next year.

We are a passionate team growing quickly to keep up with the demands of our growing number of clients and are looking for a Product Manager to work directly with our CEO and CMO to lead the design and development team.

Your objective is to disrupt patient recruitment through the management of our product and our development team. You have a proven track record of launching and scaling multiple tech products and know what it takes for your tech team to write solid, clean code.

You are a master of people and processes. You obsess about efficiency and are proud of the simplicity of your elegant solutions. You make objective decisions and find clarity through a multitude of inputs. You are focused and do not get distracted by shiny objects, staying disciplined to determine impact vs resources as you determine what and how much to build in each product sprint.

With years of creating successful products that users love, you know finding product-market fit is your most important objective and you lose sleep over how to delight users with tremendous value through the smallest yet most impactful iterations. You will need to listen carefully and often to our users (patients and researchers) and naturally you will test and measure absolutely everything, prioritizing the sometimes contradicting needs.

Navigating between patients and clinics aren’t the only juggling you will do. You conduct the product development process like an orchestra, applying what’s appropriate at certain times. Having managed a development team before, you know it takes leadership, finesse and clarity to unite the development, design and business teams. You begin by clear definitions, writing out specs and briefs like an expert author - articulating vision, addressing complexities and anticipating use-cases ahead of time. You measure our product funnels and conversion effectiveness, gathering intel and distributing back to the development teams and visa versa. Through the ebb and flows of sprint cycles, you resourcefully tackle problems and offer solutions that are the best solution for the team given again the resources vs impact equation knowing there’s never the perfect answer but we can strive to choose the best foot forward with all things considered.

You are excited about the prospect of joining a startup with a seasoned and passionate founding team who is experiencing exponential growth. But most importantly you are passionate about building a product that will make a huge difference in people’s health.

Responsibilities:

  • Take CEO & CMO’s company vision and business needs and translate it into product strategies

  • Drive innovation, definition, deliverables and design of product features to deliver against team and company goals, working with our engineers, designers and marketers.
  • Be out there testing the product, talking to users and getting that feedback first hand
  • A strong asset if you can code, at the very least a solid understanding of our ruby/rails stack so to accurately plan sprints and timelines (knowing when to revamp or find a “cheap way” of doing it)
  • Lead product management (defining scope, strategy/concept development, execution, user and acceptance testing) prior to and through each deployment
  • Prioritize projects/features with development team, assist in determining the best technical implementation methods, track product development and develop product launch plans
  • Solicit and embrace critical feedback
  • Establish a regular feedback loop to ensure we’re meeting our users needs
  • Analyze product and conversion data to increase product conversion rates

Requirements:

  • 5+ years of Product Management experience crafting a highly successful and innovative online marketplace (health experience is a huge plus)
  • BA or BS in a field relevant for Product Management (Computer Science degree is a plus), or equivalent practical experience
  • Experience designing simple and intuitive user interfaces – ability to create examples through wireframes and mock-ups
  • Distinctive problem solving, organizational, and analytical skills with the ability to evolve product strategy based on research, data and industry trends
  • Obsessed with optimising the product to achieve the business goals while maximising return on investment
  • Experience using both qualitative observations and quantitative data to inform the development process
  • Strong people skills, intuitive understanding of team dynamics, concerns, and high EQ
  • Stellar design instincts and product taste
  • Excellent written, oral, organizational and analytical skills with strong technical abilities
  • Ability to accelerate the launching of products, including providing hands-on leadership.
  • Able to excel in a fast-paced startup environment

Benefits

  • Competitive salary and stock options based on skills and experience
  • Comprehensive medical, extended health and dental
  • A very flexible vacation policy
  • Join a promising start up at the ground floor
  • Opportunities for rapid advancement
