Posted on Friday, September 1, 2023

Foursquare is the leading independent location technology and data cloud platform, dedicated to building meaningful bridges between digital spaces and physical places. Our proprietary technology unlocks the most accurate, trustworthy location data in the world, empowering businesses to answer key questions, uncover hidden insights, improve customer experiences, and achieve better business outcomes. A pioneer of the geo-location space, Foursquare’s location tech stack is being utilized by our mobile apps CityGuide and Swarm, as well as the world’s largest enterprises and most recognizable brands, like Amazon, Microsoft, Samsung, Spotify, Uber, Airbnb and others.

Foursquare’s flexible building blocks include technology to maximize marketing impact and drive incremental real-world engagement (Attribution, Audience, Proximity, SDK); data to deeply understand points of interest and real-world behavior patterns (Places and Visits), and tools to conduct advanced analysis, data enrichment, unification and visualization (Studio).

About the role:

Foursquare is looking for Product Managers to join the Product team and become experts at our data, while continually improving our Places and Visits offerings. You will be working with a dedicated engineering team to deliver against customer requirements, to continually improve the deliverables and to become the expert at our ingestion and data processes. You will have the opportunity to work directly with Foursquare customers to understand their challenges and work with go-to-market teams (business development, marketing) to launch new products.

In this role you'll:

  • Define the product vision, plans and compelling enhancements based on communication with our partners and developers, and understanding of macro trends and growth potentials
  • Create, drive and monitor prioritization of work based on analytics data
  • Gain alignment across engineering, product, sales and client services to ship products
  • Run the project teams using Scrum methodology, create and maintain a roadmap of tickets that are 2-4 sprints ahead
  • Communicate regularly across stakeholders

What you'll need:

  • Experience: 3 years of product management experience shipping products in a dynamic and fast-paced, cross-functional environment
  • Partner with internal stakeholders to understand quality problems raised by customers. Work with engineering to scope and prioritize work to address feedback
  • Analytical: you’re detail-oriented and can construct a strong narrative using data to drive the decision-making process. You know when to kill features and ignore customer feedback
  • Communication: you will eventually be expected to teach others in the organization about the product. A lot of times this will be done through tickets, but could also be done in other parts of JIRA, Slack, or email
  • Organizational skills: you can juggle multiple projects, effectively working with senior members of the team to prioritize and focus on the most impactful work
  • Team player: you know how to work with all different types of personalities and can navigate tough conversations. You build consensus by default but can drive hard decisions when you have to. You push the pace, you take blame and pass on praise
  • Adaptive: you are curious, optimistic, and a creative problem-solver. You embrace the unknown and are able to adapt to shifts in priorities. You look outside your day-to-day to ensure you are learning and growing
  • You research and evaluate sources that have been identified by other teams prior to sharing with engineering for them to do their own analysis
  • You easily manage several projects at once, work under pressure and don’t miss deadlines
  • Follow-through: you say what you’ll do, and do what you say. You don’t let details slip
  • Bonus: you have a background in engineering, data science, data analysis

  • We are a fully flexible company that allows you to work from any location in Serbia or from our Belgrade office
  • 25 days of paid vacation
  • Private medical insurance
