Product Manager

Hello everyone!

We’re looking for a Product Manager with a minimum of 3 years of experience in software product management to join Massive, the Top 100 Early Stage Company To Work For in 2022.

We want you to take ownership of current and future products, which have hundreds of thousands of active users across the globe. For Massive, ownership means improving the user experience and retention, defining and prioritizing new features, and managing roadmaps.

Below - further details in the Q&A.

What are we doing?

We built a new business model for the internet. The Massive SDK is an alternative to current online monetization. The SDK lets developers charge their users for premium services and in-app items with a little bit of their unused computing resources, rather than ads or money.

The SDK works by analyzing available resources across Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS devices and making that supply accessible to computing needs on the demand side, including scientific calculations, cryptocurrency mining, Monte Carlo simulations, and bandwidth sharing.

Why are we doing this?

The startup’s goal is to build a two-sided marketplace for compute power. That means lots more users offering up a slice of their computing power, future acceptance of mobile devices, and a broader partner list.

  • Our leadership team is comprised of serial entrepreneurs. We’ve built successful companies and aim to create a relaxed environment where engineers can focus on the projects that keep them happy and challenged at work.
