Director Product Manager, SMB Formations at LegalZoom
We have a rich 20-year history delivering against our mission to Democratize Law. For two decades we have tried to reduce the barriers to access legal assistance for both consumers and small businesses. Our products are at the heart of our success. From Estate Planning, to Business Formations to IP, we’ve helped more than 4 million customers through simple, intuitive questionnaires, and access to attorneys when needed, providing the protection and peace of mind they need. While we’ve accomplished a great deal, we believe there is so much more we can do to innovate and deliver for our customers. We’re committed to making our services more valuable and easier to use than ever before and we believe we can continue to infuse expertise and confidence into all of our products and services.
Are you a product and business leader who is customer obsessed and passionate about innovating against an inspirational mission? Do you have experience working in product centric orgs that are matrixed and require exceptional communication skills working across functions? Do you have the leadership skills and experience to both think strategically and roll your sleeves up to help the team execute? And finally, do you have P&L experience, understanding how to create and build products that can drive scalable business models and revenue growth? Then this could be just the opportunity for you! We are looking for a Director to lead our SMB formation experiences. Serving our SMB’s as they form their new entities has been at the center of our success and is still a significant growth driver for LegalZoom.

You’ll have experience working with SMB’s, understanding how to create experiences and supporting business models that create a flywheel for growth. In this role, you’ll sweat the details, work side by side with the team, and lead with a high say/do ratio.
This is a role where you will be asked to both lead the product experience and deeply understand the economics of your decisions as they relate to the P&L.
