Fundera is the go-to financial resource for small businesses. We’re here to help entrepreneurs achieve their financial goals and grow businesses as big as their aspirations; you would be key to delivering that experience.  

Fundera.com along with its recent acquisition by Nerdwallet will be the biggest acquisition driver across all of Fundera’s loan and affiliate product verticals.  We are seeking a Product Manager to drive the growth of our business by bringing the user experience across both domains to the next level.

  • Comfortable with rapid A/B testing, iterating, and reporting out on results.
  • Excited to build trust with customers, collaborators, and cross-functional teams.

 

Your experience:

  • 2-3 years of professional experience in a product management, operations, or analytics role.
