TradePending Wobbly Bird OutlineDirector of Product

TradePending seeks a Director of Product to guide the company’s product strategy and to execute upon the tactics to bring that strategy to life. We build software for automotive dealers, powering trade-in solutions and inventory merchandising across thousands of dealerships’ websites across the country.  

And we have a lot more to build and launch.

What Makes Automotive Exciting…

SaaS models, when paired with great execution, are experiencing huge growth within automotive today. There’s a massive need for dealers to continue modernizing their approach and relationships with customers, with software playing an outsized role in that future. 

What You’ll Be Working On

  • Your primary responsibility is to understand the problems that auto dealerships face through interviews and observation, translating this into actionable insights for the company.
  • A defined and goal-driven approach to Voice-of-Customer research and analysis, with 30% travel – with senior leadership, salefolks, industry conferences, and ad-hoc on your own.
  • Building and maintaining mid and long-term product roadmaps across all product lines.
  • Coordinating with leadership, development, sales and marketing to effectively manage and align all things product.
  • Creating repeatable processes to evaluate and prioritize internal and external product opportunities.

What We’re Looking For

  • Someone in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill NC area – this is not a remote position.
  • Prior experience leading product at a Software-as-a-Service company with a track record of successful product launches, product lifecycle management, and customer retention.
  • Incredible communication – listening, speaking, writing – most importantly with our current and future customers, and also within the company.
  • Curiosity, with the ability to ask the right questions and to be quiet at the right times.
  • A well-defined and clearly articulated plan for joining our team and how you’ll make an impact in the first six months.
  • Prior experience utilizing a framework or methodical approach to product, such as the “Pragmatic Framework”

Your Expectations For Us

  • Competitive salary and benefits
  • Open and honest communication across the company
  • Challenging yet achievable goals, within a relaxed corporate culture
