Job Description

About West Creek
We’re one of the fastest growing consumer finance companies in America. Why? We’re making it simpler, faster, and more transparent to purchase the things you need to make your life go.
By combining smarter technology with a relentless focus on customer experience, we’re transforming the financing experience for essential life purchases in retail transactions nationwide.
The Opportunity
Help us to create the best in-store and online financing experience for consumers of all means and credit backgrounds. In this role you’ll join a small but growing product team and be a part of driving the vision, strategy, and process that scales our rapidly growing business. You will partner with various internal teams, developing a detailed understanding of our merchant partners and their customers to remove friction, create delight, and innovate in our product offering.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Partner with and lead cross functional teams to set product vision and strategy
  • Advocate for our merchant partners and consumer users through thoughtful product decisions that define our roadmap

  • Define and track metrics that drive insights into the success of our products
  • Manage competing priorities with consistency and transparency
  • Use data and customer feedback to constantly iterate and evolve our product offering

Things we value:

  • Curiosity. Why? How?
  • Nerdiness. Financial news and trends are fascinating. Seriously.
  • Relentlessness. No one here gives up. We try. We fail. We try again.
  • Passion. If you don’t get excited about point of sale financing, retail, and consumer empowerment, it simply won’t work.
  • Smarts: Book and street. We have to use all of the tools at our disposal to build West Creek.
  • Empathy and Compassion. You understand that people’s access to life essential goods and services are in your hands.
  • Communication. Can you ask for help or put your hand up when you don’t understand?
  • Building. Doing. Making. Yes, we have to do a lot of thinking and talking to figure this stuff out, but you can’t wait to leave the conversation and build it.

Requirements

  • 4+ years in a product management capacity at a technology-driven organization
  • BA/BS in a technical or analytical field
  • You’re an analytical, metrics-driven thinker who is deeply empathetic and leads with a user-centered approach

  • You do whatever it takes to make your product and team successful
