Director, Product

| Greater LA Area

We are currently hiring for a user-centric, data-driven, results-oriented experienced Director of Product!

This is an opportunity for you to own key aspects of the product and have a real impact on the users we serve. You will play a critical role in our growing team. This is a great opportunity for you to join a fast-moving FinTech company and craft the direction of the product by working directly with the VP of Product and a high-performing team of product managers, designers and engineers.

At Verifi, you will be part of a dynamic environment that embraces interdepartmental collaboration, fuels creativity, and provides you with an opportunity to take ownership and play an intricate part in our company's success.
 You will work alongside the brightest and most remarkable individuals in the industry and you will have an immediate impact on our innovative and disruptive position in the payments space. And you will do all this while challenging your career, giving back to the community, and creating new friendships.

We're looking for a thoughtful, product leader who can scale as Verifi scales. Our first principle to product management is "curation, not creation". We don't want product managers to create a roadmap in a vacuum. We take a listening-first approach by reaching out to stakeholders and curating their feedback into a roadmap. An empathetic, learning-oriented leader will thrive in this environment.
Join Verifi and you join the leading provider of solutions in the eCommerce marketplace for payment and risk management.
