About Prodigal

Prodigal is a fast-growing Silicon Valley-based startup that is backed by leading investors like Y-Combinator.  We were founded by industry insiders to revamp the intelligence and tools available to credit collection teams inside lenders and agencies.  Each week, we analyze millions of borrower interactions to provide our customers with insights that are actionable and relevant. We are a young, fast-moving company looking for exceptional folks to help shape our journey.

Product Managers (PM) at Prodigal create the vision for the future of US Credit Collections industry. Deeply understanding the pain points and nuances of the stakeholders in this industry, product managers strive to build futuristic products that address the most critical cross-industry problems.

What will you be doing?

The 3 core responsibilities of a PM at Prodigal.

  • Ideate.

    Ideate, execute, iterate, ideate. This mantra is the very core of the Product ethos at Prodigal. With one foot with Customer Success & Growth teams and the other with the Engineering teams, Prodigal offers its PMs the opportunity to resonate with customer problems first-hand while scoping the problems into the brackets of available technological expertise & resources at hand and to turn them into visionary product ideas.

  • Set the Pace.

    If you move fast, Prodigal moves fast. Shepherding the team to meet aggressive deadlines while moderating the customer expectations is a consistent conundrum in a PM's life. A Product Manager with us will always have multiple balls in the air at the same time; prioritising and expectation-setting becomes critical. Our team currently sets the bar high and dropping any of these balls is as unforgivable as a baseball strike!

  • Growth.

    With Prodigal, as a PM, you are the Product Owner. Building the product is just half the battle won. Given that we function in a low-tech industry, the onus of selling the futuristic products and getting the customers to adopt it is on the Product Manager. Stepping into the shoes of our customers to empathize with their problems and working hand in hand with their growth teams, are some of the most frequent levers you would need to pull, to excel as a PM at Prodigal.

What you should already have?

  • Passionate about Prodigal and the problem we are solving.
  • At least 2 years of experience in Product Management, Management Consulting, VC/PE or Investment Banking
  • Ability to organize in chaos is of paramount importance
  • Prior experience in FinTech or SaaS would be an added advantage
  • Clear and effective written and verbal communicator. This is non-negotiable for a PM. (Need to get multiple stakeholders to buy-in to your ideas)
  • A sense of Engineering scopes, limitations and timelines
  • Some behavioural skills we prefer in a PM:
    • Effective listener
    • Ability to think big and small
    • Ability to build consensus while driving hard decisions
    • Can motivate the team to dream big
