Many people around the world do not have access to even basic financial services, such as checking accounts, credit from regulated institutions, and insurance. These populations are instead at the mercy of informal financial services that can be either predatory or insufficient for their needs. At Juvo, we believe that everyone in the world deserves a chance at financial stability and success. Beginning with small loans to help people pay for their mobile service, we walk people up a path to higher value financial services by helping them build a financial identity and connecting them to reputable financial institutions in their countries.

As a product manager at Juvo, you will be responsible for the continued growth of our applications around the world, from 10s of millions to 100s of millions and beyond. You will have a central role within the organization and will regularly interface with the engineering, design, data science, marketing, business development, and partnerships teams. This role is equal parts strategy and execution — you will be responsible for creating & refining roadmaps with your project teams and will be responsible for writing and maintain specifications for new features and products. An ideal candidate uses data to form hypotheses, can clearly justify decisions based on high level business objectives, and has experience working on mobile applications. This position reports directly to the VP of Product.
