In the time it takes you to read this job ad, around 200 new accounts will have signed up to Linktree.

If you read through the requirements as a checklist and haven’t ticked every box, please don’t rule yourself out just yet. We’ve seen the research that women and other people in minority groups tend to only apply when the checklist is all ticks and no crosses. So if you think you have what it takes, hit that apply button.

The role:

Due to immense product growth, we have new Product Manager positions at various levels across different product areas at Linktree. If you’ve seen this ad recently, we have filled a few positions but still have requirements for Technical Product Managers in the following squads:

  • Product Manager - Platform - Authentication and Site Reliability Engineering
  • Play a pivotal role in improving conversion rate and virality by introducing authenticated experiences across the product, from signup flow through to sharing a Linktree and integrating with platforms like Instagram. At the same time, work with our Site Reliability Engineering team to improve the reliability of Linktree for users, and ensure that our systems and processes are set up such that Linktree can continue to scale rapidly
  • Product Manager - Platform - UI Platform
  • Improve the consistency across key user flows in the Linktree product. Work with teams across Linktree to establish a design system to improve the speed and user experience across the product, particularly as we launch new and varied user experiences.

You will work in cross-functional squads with engineers, designers, and analysts. You will lead your squad to deliver changes in your product area that deliver on the Product Strategy and Roadmap, and drive our OKRs and measures of success.

Working with Senior Product Managers, Group Product Managers and our Head of Product Ali, you will have strong leaders and mentors to work and collaborate with.

This role can be fully remote anywhere in Australia or a hybrid in-office/remote structure if you are in Melbourne or Sydney.

Requirements

What you will own:

  • Product Manage one or more squads to deliver changes across this product area in order to drive the Product strategy and company OKRs.
  • Make scoping decisions based on product priority
  • Work with Design and Engineering counterparts to perform discovery, including A/B Testing, user testing and quantitative data as needed
  • Establish the measures that you will use to confirm a successful product delivery
  • Communicate effectively at all levels, internally and externally to Linktree, including explaining complex technical topics in simple ways that are understandable

What we are looking for:

We hire with a people-first approach so more importantly you will be collaborative, curious, enjoy solving complex problems, and have empathy for the growing pains of a rapidly scaling startup.

As we have multiple roles at the moment, we are looking for mid and senior Product Managers so as long as you have more than a year in Product Management, the seniority of the openings we have varies. So if you’re thinking “this all sounds great but I’m too Senior” you’re not, we’d like to chat.

  • At least 1 year in Product Management/Owner roles, ideally in B2C SaaS product companies.
  • A Platform as a Product approach to Product Management
  • Someone that can demonstrate prior experience running cross functional squads
  • Experience in making product prioritisation decisions
  • Experience in adjusting the scope of a product feature in order to meet business needs/OKRs
  • Can explain technical topics simply so that stakeholders understand them as we are a highly cross-functional organisation

Where and how we work:

We are a global, diverse group across age, gender, and race and offer a truly flexible and family friendly work environment. Kids, pets and the occasional delivery person are all actively encouraged to appear on our Zoom screens. All of us at Linktree work either fully remote or a hybrid “remote and in-office sometimes” approach and that will continue even when COVID is behind us.

We currently have offices in Melbourne, Sydney with LA coming next but our team is spread across Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, USA, Canada, Ireland and Nigeria.

Being globally distributed doesn’t mean working to one time-zone and we offer autonomy and flexibility in how you structure your days and weeks. There will be the need for some collaboration outside of a “normal” 9-5 being a global company but we aim to work asynchronously where possible.

Our culture & benefits:

Linktree’s company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:

  • We have a paid 18-week parental leave program that is inclusive of birth and non-birthing parents and supports the whole parenting lifecycle
  • We are proud to offer all regular full-time and part-time employees 20 hours’ paid volunteering leave per calendar year.
  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity, unconscious bias, and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.
  • We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees have free access to Headspace and Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.
  • All Linktree staff receive $1000 AUD towards setting up their work from home space

The Linktree Story

The average number of social media accounts is close to 9 per person these days. Chances are you’re also using more than 3-4 social media platforms - but where should someone who want to discover more about you can achieve that? In a highly fragmented digital world, the concept of presenting your whole self feels overwhelming to most - and that’s where Linktree comes in.

Creating this category 5 years ago, we launched a simple tool that allowed anyone to manage their corner of the online world. Want to link all your social media accounts under one link? Thinking of turning your passion into your income? Want to share your ideas, beliefs, or even just a playlist you like? Linktree has the platform to help you get it done.

It sounds good, we hear you say, but how do I know if it works? Fair question - why don’t you take it up with Facebook, TikTok, Redbull, HBO, Metallica, Alicia Keys, Selena Gomez, or Michelle Obama? They’re all using Linktree!

With an average sign up rate of 30,000+ new users per day for the past 18 months (with no signs of stopping), and with our latest funding round of $45M USD announced recently, we’re on our way to make real impact on the digital world - and we’d love for you to join us for this ride.
