Director Product Management

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by 👋

Are you actively looking for a new opportunity? Or just checking the market? Well… you might just be in the right place! 

We are looking for a product leader to lead our Capital team.

About the Role

Lightspeed Capital provides a vital influx of cash for small businesses at the click of a button. These businesses are often unsupported by banks, and have a hard time getting funding. Lightspeed Capital enables them to repay as a % of their revenue, without any work from them.

  • Own decisions directly impacting the top line growth of the capital business.

  • Operate a fast executing, user centric team that delivers on their goal
  • Manage a team of PMs in delivering on this plan.
