Technical Product Manager

The Flip Side

The Flip Side

IT, Product
Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Posted on Friday, September 15, 2023

The Flip Side is building a new and more productive way to talk about current events and political issues (the “salon” to Twitter’s “town square”)—

  • One topic at a time 
  • Starting on the same page with fact-checked, bipartisan-approved content
  • Quality comments get prioritized with our proprietary algorithm that pushes helpful posts up, and trolls down

We are seeking an experienced Technical Product Manager to join our team on a part-time basis or as a consultant to start. This role offers a unique opportunity to make a significant impact as we refine our MVP and shape our product's future roadmap. We're looking for someone who can assess our current progress, identify missing features, recommend APIs and AI tools, and enhance the user experience.

Responsibilities

  • Conduct research on competitors to inform our product strategy
  • Review and audit our existing feature list to identify gaps or areas for improved user experience
  • Recommend new features and enhancements to align with user and business expectations at launch (e.g., homepage redesign, comment nesting)
  • Evaluate existing resources, including APIs, open-source code, no-code tools, and AI solutions, and propose improvements considering budget and time constraints
  • Serve as a thought leader, contributing to the refinement of our long-term product strategy

Qualifications

  • Proven experience in technical product management, including building products from concept to launch
  • UX/UI design experience with a keen eye for microinteractions, hovers, and easing
  • Familiarity with social media or community platforms professionally and as an active user is a plus
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent communication and proactive collaboration abilities

Please send your resume and 1-2 paragraphs introducing yourself to annafi@theflipside.io if you're passionate about shaping the future of news and civic engagement! We can’t wait to meet you.
