About the products…
As Product Manager, you will be responsible for identifying, prioritizing, and allocating features to buildout and maintain "Transform" & "Amplify." Using startup-then scale-up methodologies. We need an effective approach to product management because we want to build the right product(s), monitor the output of development teams, ongoing feature development, experiments and eventually existing solutions running in production to determine their effectiveness.
You will work closely with the executive director, an outsourced development team (that you will build), outsourced UX group, and more.
Transform is an intake, assessment and case management system for the social services sector that is focussed on transformational goals. We want to leverage technology, machine learning, predictive analysis, modern databases & client focussed UI to help people succeed at life-changing goals.
Status: MetaLab.ca (the designers of Slack) has invested $150k+ in development and helped us arrive at a clear MVP with near fully articulated UI/UX. [MVP List | Prototype]. We have validated and tested product assumptions via internal prototypes and customer consultation. We are now ready to move from prototype to product and our goal is to be doing internal testing of the tool in the next 3-5 months.
Amplify is an existing white labeled product that we want to bring to Edmonton. Our goal is to strengthen local businesses while increasing dignity, choice, & connection for those we serve through a sustainable & proven system that integrates multi-vendor loyalty rewards, local currency, and more efficient payments.
Status: We have a partnership with the developer. Your role will be to lead a slight UI/UX refresh of the app, localizing it to Edmonton (the app has already been localized to Brandon & Winnipeg), supporting/overseeing rollout.
