Senior Product Manager



Toronto, ON, Canada
Posted on Friday, July 28, 2023
Our mission is to increase the success rate of small businesses. Traditional banking has been a growth limiter rather than a growth enabler for business owners, and we’re changing that. Relay is the all-in-one, collaborative money management platform. We’re building for employer SMBs and their finance function, internal and external, and are focused on delivering a human-centric customer experience. Ultimately, we help SMBs be ‘on the money'.
At Relay, our Product team is responsible for shaping our small business banking platform; we dive deep into the problems and pain points of our customers to marry their needs with those of our business and the capabilities of technology.
We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to play a key part in building not only the product but someone who will be a vital part of problem-solving for our customers.

  • You're a maker and a builder; you can show us things you've written, designed, or ideally, built
  • Your work experience shows a history of excellence and impact

  • You're data-obsessed and know how to turn data into insights using tools like Excel, SQL, Looker, Metabase, etc.
  • You care deeply about small businesses and their owners/operators
  • You have a bias for action and find creative ways to get difficult things done
  • You communicate clearly and concisely, both visually and in writing

  • You have experience working in financial products & services ideally at a startup or high-growth environment

Our Commitment To You:

  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity: every team member gets a piece of the pie.
  • Comprehensive health benefits: we offer full health benefits + an HSA/WSA starting from day 1 so you get the coverage you need.
  • Considerable vacation/end-of-year holiday shutdown: we take time off to reset and recharge so we come back better for our customers.

  • Personal and professional growth: support from leaders who care about your growth and success through regular feedback and coaching. Our goal is to make Relay a step-change career opportunity.
