About TaskRabbit 

Each day brings more to-dos and less time to accomplish them. Whether someone needs a handyman, house cleaner, mover or delivery person, TaskRabbit delights clients by matching the right skilled person in minutes. With our support, our customers can accomplish it all not only today, but also on-demand to be their most productive self. On the other side of the marketplace we help our Taskers earn a living by setting their own prices, defining their working hours, and giving them control to help people when and how they want in the most supportive marketplace. 

We're a mission-driven company. Our culture is collaborative, pragmatic and fast-paced. We're looking for talented, entrepreneurially minded and data-driven people who also have a passion for helping people do what they love - and having a ton of fun while they're at it. 

About the job 

As Product Manager you’ll be responsible for guiding product strategy, functional requirements, product design and more for our IKEA business. This is a rapidly growing part of the company and a strategic priority. Our ideal candidate is passionate about TaskRabbit and the sharing economy, has experience shipping impactful products, and has led teams to success ideally in a startup environment. This candidate would also be personable, collaborative and flexible, with the drive to manage multiple complex projects simultaneously.

  • Drive and focus the IKEA product roadmap on achieving our strategic goals, in collaboration with engineering, design, the data team, and TaskRabbit & IKEA stakeholders.
  • Make ruthless decisions about what to do (and importantly: what not to do)
  • Generate and go deep on customer insights, end-to-end experience, and data analytics to learn what works and doesn’t as we take this partnership and grow it globally.
  • Build relationships across our IKEA stakeholder group, TaskRabbit Product, and the executive team in order to successfully launch and grow multiple complex projects

  • You have successfully planned and executed highly complex projects, working through ambiguity and interdependency challenges along the way.

  • You’re good at inspiring and leading teams. You take the time to really understand individuals’ interests and sources of motivation.
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills. You make complex ideas understandable and craft narratives that are easy for multiple audiences to consume
  • You have advanced skills using analytics tools (Google Analytics, Looker, Tableau, Excel/Google Sheets, etc).
  • If you have experience leading products through international expansion, that’s a plus.
  • If you have experience working in or partnering with large, complex companies, that’s a plus.
  • You’re excellent at execution. You’ve worn Product Manager, Project Manager, and Quality Assurance hats whenever needed, even if those functions weren’t in your title.
  • You’re comfortable operating at a fast pace in an entrepreneurial environment.
  • You love open, honest, healthy communication. No time for politics.
