Hard problems. Diverse technology. Amazing culture.

Product Manager

Los Angeles

Factual believes that Location Data drives an evolved mobile experience.  Our Geopulse products provide data-driven, contextual relevance to developers, advertisers and publishers who aim to make their content more targeted, engaging, and valuable.  

To this end, Factual is seeking a seasoned Product Manager to drive the feature set and adoption of our products in the mobile, advertising and technology space. 

Responsibilities:

Factual product managers have hands-on development experience, and are comfortable engaging with internal engineering teams, as well as with cross functional internal teams (business development, partner services, agency & strategic accounts, and marketing).  This position will entail a significant outbound partner facing component.  Product managers proactively gather requirements, prioritize and manage a roadmap, act and think independently, track and analyze all components of the business, and drive integration with customers.  Your mission, if you choose to accept it:

  • Develop, prioritize and execute product strategies that secure and grow the Geopulse business and improve the product impact and results across a wide range of constituents - advertisers, agencies, agency trading desks, DSPs, exchanges, and mobile publishers & developers.
  • Collaborate closely with engineering to establish well understood product requirements, effectively organize resource allocation, and deliver against established roadmap deliverables.
  • Work closely with marketing and revenue teams to constantly optimize efforts relating to company goals, natch.
  • Engage in the day-to-day communications with both clients and internal teams.
  • Look for opportunities to help grow Factual through product innovation and customer needs.
  • Represent the needs of top partners within the organization, and escalate issues and requests as needed.
  • Evangelize Factual in the marketplace, and the overall importance of Location-Based Context as a key component in strategy.
  • Gather feedback that will inform Engineering, Product, Marketing, and Sales decisions.

Requirements:

  • Product management experience: we'll want to know details about the products you have owned and delivered, not just those to which you have contributed
  • Demonstrable ad-tech stack and ecosystem knowledge
  • Critical thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills: we are Product Managers, not Farmers, here
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.  This role demands you write white papers, opinion pieces, blog posts, and other pragmatic-and-well-considered contributions to the product.  We don't go in for hand-wavvy, thought-leader, thinktrepreneur pieces.

Nice to haves:

  • Minimum of three years of product development experience at a technology company.  
  • Location and geo-targeting technological experience
  • Working knowledge of mobile technologies
  • Knowledge of open source software design and development practices. You'll have a Github page that was not made in the last month.
  • Applications without cover letters will be treated with the same impersonal indifference with which they were submitted.  Please include a cover letter with your résumé.
  • Include links to your blog, Github, Twitter, etc. or other public sources where we can learn more about your oeuvre, your code, ideas, and enthusiasm.
