Head of Product

LoudCrowd, one of the fastest growing companies in Austin and backed by many of the most successful investors and entrepreneurs in Austin, is looking for a product leader.

LoudCrowd helps brands market through their customers.  We believe that customers sharing the brands they love on social media is a better way to market than creepy digital hyper-targeting, and we’ve built tools to help brands get their customers to create more social content.

 

The Role

LoudCrowd is looking for a product leader to take over the vision / execution of our software products. Currently, our two software products are managed by our CEO, four product-conscious engineers, and our product designer. This person will report directly to the CEO, and with success will be one of the core decision-makers in the company.

 

The Products

Growth - Our flagship product helps brands create "UGC" (user-generated content) and ambassador programs that incentivize all of their customers to create social content. It is a patent-pending, one of a kind product that is delivering transformative results for brands. We fundamentally believe this product is the future of marketing

Measure - Our analytics product helps brands measure the value of their UGC (user-generated content). It's a best-in-class, self-service product that transforms how brands think about their social content.

 

What You'll do:

  • In collaboration with the CEO, own the 6-12 month product roadmap

  • Mature our product processes and increase engineering efficiency

  • Take ownership of the software user-experience and drive excellence, particularly with our self-service customers

  • Work with sales, marketing and customer success to capture product feedback and deliver product enhancements

  • Develop an intimate understanding of the market and tangential companies to guide our own roadmap

  • You'll start as responsible for "How do we get there?"... and gradually be responsible for "How will we win?"

 

About You:

  • Owned a software product before and can build / manage the product org + processes

  • Data-driven and a high level of comfort / vision for product analytics

  • Extremely collaborative, candid, and transparent. The ability to work with the team is more important than your product knowledge

  • Very strong attention to detail and very high "product / UX standards"

  • Capable of synthesizing information from different sources to drive product features

  • Previously worked at a company with less than 50 people, and the prospect of doing so again excites you (for a short period of time... we're growing VERY quickly)

 

Why Us:

  • We want to empower you to be a premiere, high-visibility product leader in Austin

  • We are extremely fast-growing and are on track for a MASSIVE outcome

  • We are strongly backed by some of the most successful investors in Austin

  • We care about our people and make sure every day is enjoyable

  • We have competitive compensation + benefits packages

An Insider's view of LoudCrowd

What are some social events your company does?

Every other Friday, we morph our weekly wrap up into a company event. We take the time to hang out, get outdoors, and talk about things outside of work. It gives the team a space to decompress and go over all the random things we don't get to during the week. It's a great way to build company culture while respecting work/life balance.

Lacey

Director of Marketing

What does your typical day look like?

As a client strategist, I meet with my brand clients on their UGC programs and creating client stories (like case studies). I also work closely with our internal teams: engineering for new product launches, sales for new clients sold, and marketing for customer stories.

Alexa

Client Strategist

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful LoudCrowd member is passionate about innovation and problem solving. Because there is no other marketing solution like LoudCrowd, you have to be comfortable with being curious and developing unique, yet scalable solutions for our clients.

Ashlee

Team Lead - Client Strategy

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I don't pretend to be Elon Musk.

Our team is full of passionate, talented individuals, and we trust them to find creative solutions to our challenges. Almost every decision we make is collaborative and probably employee-driven.

We hire great people, we don't micro-manage them.

Gary

CEO

How does the company support your career growth?

We hire future entrepreneurs + tech leaders.

Our expectation is that when we hire someone, even if they are right out of college, they will grow into company leadership. We expect everyone brings that kind of passion, and then we reward it with responsibility. We would much rather cultivate leadership than. buy it.

President
