My Fintech Startup Client is building the world's first investment strategy anyone can improve with their data. They select stocks to a portfolio by analyzing trends in the data and the market. Their app is a consumer facing fintech that is changing the way we think about investing/finance. They are growing and currently have 60 people in multi-disciplinary teams located around the world. They began in January 2018 and are graduates of Y Combinator and the Creative Destruction Lab. To date, they've raised two rounds of funding and approximately $80 million.

Their growth team helps them achieve their user growth goals: A world where our data generates greater returns than our labor. Currently the team is focused on improving new user experience i.e., onboarding to activation. In the future growth team might focus on driving viral growth via referrals, and organic mechanisms to engage with users.
In partnership with their engineering and design team, you’ll be responsible for guiding the team on forming, testing and learning from hypotheses. Setting the right success metrics and then driving learnings so as to continuously improve user experience. You will directly own the vision, strategy, and roadmap of user growth.

  • Create a vision, define success and set goals and create a roadmap for enabling the growth team to deliver on their mission and achieve their goals.
  • Experimentation: Drive their experimentation process: form and validate data-informed hypotheses for accelerating member acquisition, activation and retention.
  • Cross-team collaboration: Partner cross-functionally with Engineering, Design, and Marketing teams to spec, test, and improve user activation and retention
  • Go-to-market planning: Partner closely with stakeholders, such as marketing, compliance and customer support to ensure that everyone understands the tests and launch timelines. Socialize the learnings and improvements in metrics.
  • Execution: Partner with your engineering team using agile methodology to bring your product backlog to life in ways that will deliver value to users quickly and iteratively.
  • Drive Insights: Deep familiarity with growth frameworks (like cohort analysis and growth models). Strong analytical skills, competence in SQL, and experience with product analytics tools for conducting data analysis. Inform and drive key decisions with data-informed insights and research.
  • Communication: This position requires stellar communication, collaboration, product sense, technical and data fluency.
