About the role
The product manager is responsible for the tools we use to transform financial advice. Albert’s product managers sit at the intersection of software development, design, and business strategy.
On an average day, our product managers might pitch a concept to senior leadership, create a launch plan with marketing, work with designers to prototype a new feature, analyze customer data with geniuses, and/or meet with engineering to implement changes. Our PMs also work directly with
customers, unearthing pain points and understanding their pressing needs.
