Product Manager, TrueLocation API

Development Operations · Vancouver, British Columbia
Department Development Operations
Employment Type Full-Time

“Do you ever get frustrated about how much fraud there is online and how little banks seem to be able to do to stop it? This is your chance to make a difference and level the playing-field!”


The Company

 

GeoComply and its GeoGuard division operate at the center of a new generation of cybersecurity companies, leveraging today's geolocation data to make better risk-based decisions.

 

One of North America’s fastest-growing companies, and working as a critical piece of the infrastructure for some of the world’s largest tech companies, GeoComply has become the global market-leader for compliance-grade geolocation data and a critical piece of the decision engine. 


The Opportunity

 

GeoComply Solutions is looking for a Product Manager for its TrueLocation API product. TrueLocation combines the world’s most powerful geolocation data set with bleeding edge Data Science to create near-instant fraud alerts for account-takeover, synthetic account creation and other common cyber attack vectors. 

As Product Manager you will be the CEO of the Product with a unique opportunity to demonstrate your ability to meld technical expertise with entrepreneurial instinct. You will create and implement the vision that takes this product to market and makes it financially viable. And, most importantly, you will be playing a key role in helping protect against fraud and cybercrime online.


As a product manager, you will directly contribute to GeoComply’s expansions into a new market segment. You will own all things product management for our TrueLocation API product: defining the vision, researching the product strategy, designing the product roadmap and features, and successfully delivering the product. 


This is a newly created role so you will wear many hats (for now!). You are first and foremost a product manager, but at times you will be called upon to put on your business analyst, UX designer, or project management hat. You are an entrepreneur at heart and know what it takes to successfully take a product to market, especially within a fast-growing and changing company environment. You can cut through the noise to understand what is needed, consider the trade-offs, map out a plan, and see that plan through.


Additional data points: this role will report into the Vancouver, BC Head Office, but could be located anywhere.

Candidate Profile

 

  • Experienced. You have at least 7 years of product management experience, bringing your product vision to commercial success, and 3 of those years will have been product managing B2B SaaS products.
