VP of Payments
Company: Other Consumer Products, Boulder, CO
Posted on: December 7, 2018
We are seeking a Vice President of Payments, who will be responsible for leading and managing our strategic payment initiatives and creating world-class payment experiences across all of our products. This role will be equal parts strategy and execution, and will report to the CEO.
Company is a mostly-distributed company, so you must be very comfortable working with people who aren’t in the same physical location as you or each other. We value trust, communication and fun more than big company policies and rules, and we thrive on empowering our employees instead of controlling them. We’ve been named to Outside Magazine’s list of Best Places to Work the last three years.
You will work closely with the other members of the executive team, including our functional leaders and business general managers. You will be instrumental in defining the vision, strategy and team to bring to life an invisible-by-design payment experience that will deliver customer delight and be a key competitive differentiator. You will work with customers, internal stakeholders and cross-functional teams around the company to evolve our products for maximum customer and business outcomes.
Responsibilities Include: Lead and grow our Company Payments team. Build out and execute our payment strategy, which includes: market research, opportunity analysis, forecasting, performance management, monetization strategies, product vision + roadmap execution, risk management, strategic partnerships, and ruthless prioritization (unless your name is Ruth). Utilize a data-driven approach to identify opportunities, trends and a roadmap for new, market-differentiating payment products. Employ a “build-measure-learn” approach to quickly test ideas and kill the bad ones. Work hand-in-hand with engineering, product management and design to define priorities, declare scope and oversee execution through the entire product lifecycle. Communicate regularly with our customers in all segments, understand their needs, and build a community that can give regular feedback on feature ideas and prototypes. Work cross-functionally to lead the product launch of key initiatives. Build trust with employees across all layers of the organization; be an active listener and effective problem-solver. Think outside the box -- where can we take our products beyond where they are today Requirements Include: 10+ years experience in a product management or payments management role, with recent and extensive experience with integrated SaaS payment solutions and payment facilitator business models. A proven and experienced senior leader in the areas of strategy, execution, and delivery. The ability to work with the senior leadership team to craft and implement a payment strategy that compliments and strengthens our overall business strategy. Exceptional history of effectively leading complex cross-functional initiatives in fast-paced, high-growth environments. Passion for great product experiences - constantly seeking to learn best practices in web and mobile products and apply those to our own products. Experience working in an agile product development environment (knowledge of JIRA is a definite bonus). Excellent project management skills with a proven ability to design, communicate, and launch key strategy initiatives. Strong opinions on The Beatles vs The Rolling Stones. Ability to use data and analysis to drive fact-based decisions and recommendations (knowledge of Tableau, Google Analytics and SQL are also a bonus). Experience working a highly-distributed workforce, with 75% of the company working outside of HQ in Boulder, Colorado. Strong communicator with the ability to provide both strategic foresight and feedback, from the executive team and board of directors to the front-line employee. Thrive in a fast-growing and amorphous environment – adapting and re-prioritizing as needed. Preferred Experience Includes: Experience in expanding payments globally Experience working at a high-growth stage startup or scale-up
