Behind the scenes, we're an ambitious team that are passionate about inspiring others to take on life-changing challenges, and are looking for others who share this passion to join the team as we shake up the health and fitness industry.
 
ABOUT THE ROLE
 
Let's Do This are looking for a VP of Product to own product strategy and vision at an exciting, early stage in the development of the company and product. The Let's Do This product is already multi-faceted, including a consumer facing event search and recommendation product, a B2B platform for event organisers to market their events, and a web-scraping and data aggregation tool.
 
As VP of Product you'll work closely with the founders to define the product vision, and you’ll own the product strategy and roadmap across all areas of the product . You’ll be expected to hire, mentor, and guide a team of exceptional product managers on a variety of areas as we build out our product team. You’ll take pride in empowering individuals and teams to deliver outstanding user experiences (for participants as well as event organisers) through an innovative and autonomous environment.
 
You are the sort of personality who thrives in a fast-moving, quickly changing atmosphere. You understand, are excited by, and ideally have experienced the challenges of an early stage start-up, including the need to move quickly, compromise, and wear many hats when required.

    • You understand how to run A/B and multivariate tests, using customer data to drive decision-making, and are willing to question your assumptions on a regular basis
