Senior Product Manager

San Francisco / Remote

CircleUp harnesses the power of machine learning and predictive analytics to discover the fastest-growing companies in the consumer products sector. Our mission is to help entrepreneurs to thrive by giving them the capital and resources they need. The development of Helio, our machine learning platform, allows us to uncover data and insights that enable faster, smarter decisions for our capital offerings by investing in a “systematic” fashion. We’re looking to scale these capabilities across the private investing community to amplify our mission.

As our Credit & Equity business units scale, we are looking for a seasoned Product Manager to help us scale our mission by disrupting how private investing operates today via data and insights previously unavailable to the private investing community. We’re looking for someone who thrives on solving hard problems, and puts the customer first. 

CircleUp was recently honored as one of Fast Company's Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Data Science and has been named a CB Insights FinTech 250, a Top 5 Most Disruptive Company in Finance by CNBC, and to the Forbes FinTech 50. Founded in 2012, CircleUp is headquartered in San Francisco and backed by Union Square Ventures, GV, Canaan Partners, QED Advisors, and others
