Description:

Hi! We’re looking for the right person to join our team as Product Manager & Growth Hacker at Kindara, a funded early-stage startup based in Boulder, Colorado. We’re a small group of entrepreneurs, designers, doctors, women's health advocates and engineers committed to creating amazing health management products for women. Check us out at www.kindara.com

This is a full-time role based in downtown Boulder, Colorado.

About Us

We believe in doing something useful and leaving the world better than we found it. And we believe in moving quickly and getting things done.

Our guiding star is to empower women through a better understanding of their bodies. Our culture is one of collaboration and friendliness with an emphasis on finding good ideas and then working hard and smart to turn them into results. We like pushing the envelope and thinking different.

Our office is a converted house in downtown Boulder, just off Pearl Street. We take our shoes off and make ourselves at home. We have no official vacation policy and everyone has ownership in the company. We all contribute and win together.

From a product perspective we focus on making elegant, simple and useful products that we would (and do) use ourselves. We believe great products can change the world.

Who We’re Looking For

First, we’re looking for someone who is excited to be a part of the future of women's health. We think fertility and reproductive health are some of the most interesting and important issues of our time.

This is a very big deal and prior demonstrated experience successfully managing and growing software products is essential.
