Senior Product Manager / Optimization Director

3rd Fastest Growing Small Company in Central Texas and second consecutive year awarded "Best Places to Work in Austin" in 2017!



We're on the hunt for a smart, intuitive, data-driven, creative, passionate, and FUN problem solver to join our team as a Product Manager (or in Clearhead talk: Optimization Director).



You love the idea of working at a young, fast growing, fast paced company (family) that doesn’t have all the answers yet, but is working on figuring them out each day.  

You love the idea of spending each day gathering and employing data to make product decisions. You hate the old way of doing things: making product roadmap decisions based on gut, debating colors and copy and whether something looks “clean”, chasing the latest trends and buzzwords, and spending millions on massive redesigns that fail to deliver on expectations.  

You are ready for a new way of doing things.  A way inspired by the ideas of the “Lean Startup” and immersed in experimentation, data and measurement.
