NerdWallet is in the business of putting personal finance knowledge in your wallet with accessible online tools and expert advice. The home buying and owning space is fragmented and antiquated; you would play an integral role in fixing that. Additionally, home financing decisions are complex and unintuitive, and you’ll be tasked with creating a best-in-class marketplace to make these decisions simple for consumers.

Lead development of the feature roadmap through conducting user research, analyzing the competitive environment and understanding key product metrics.
Exhibit sound product judgment and present clear measurable objectives that will lead to achieving business goals.
Clearly communicate product ideas, user value, and benefits to our users and internal stakeholders.
Drive new feature development from start to finish - write specs, work cross-functionally with design and engineering, launch features, analyze results, synthesize learnings, and iterate.
Mentor and develop other members of the product team as we grow and scale.
A Self-Starter/Team Player Attitude: You are excited by a fast-paced environment and the accountability that comes with owning large projects.
Solid Business/Strategic Intuition: You are able to identify the right business opportunities, make prioritization calls, and devise clear action plans.
Strong Product Intuition: You have a clear sense of how to gather insights and synthesize consumer needs.

Technical Chops: You speak intelligently with engineers and know how to build incrementally with a focus on the future.
An Analytical Approach: You can properly evaluate the success or failure of features and use data to guide next steps.
