With headquarters in London, spaces in LA and New York, we have a team of more than 100 people dedicated to enhancing and developing the Depop experience for our global communities. And we’re just getting started.

Right now, we’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to join the team and lead our efforts to make payments as easy and trusted as possible. This is a critical role that touches every aspect of the business: how buyers pay for the items they want, how vendors get paid for the items they sell, and our back office operations behind the scenes.

You’ll be a key member of the product team, reporting directly to the Head of Product and also expected to take a meaningful role in shaping our product management organisation.

  • Removing obstacles to the team proactively, and making sure the team functions effectively
  • Designing features that are simple, intuitive and beautiful

Keeping everyone aligned and informed:

  • Aligning with the leadership team on their priorities and strategic goals
  • Keeping all stakeholders informed about team direction and progress
  • Motivating the team and giving them the context they need to reach their potential

Requirements

  • A strong sense of ownership and be highly organised. You create order in the world around you and get huge satisfaction from delivering the highest quality features
  • Excellent communication skills. You are logical, articulate, and can work collaboratively with a variety of stakeholders
  • Great commercial awareness. You think constantly about driving business results, and base your decisions in data, user interviews, and rigorous analysis

Benefits

Now we're talking. We have stylish offices near Old Street (we were founded in Italy after all) and a relaxed atmosphere where you'll get to work with a well-funded, passionate and friendly team. There are perks of course, to name a few we have 25 days holiday, options to buy/sell more, the regular snacks and drinks, parties and team nights out, yoga, meditation, UK pension scheme, special stuff on birthdays and life events and more. But the biggest perk of all is the opportunity to work with such a vibrant group of people building a product we all deeply care about.
