Product at Wealthfront strives to re-imagine a financial industry where products are delivered by technology, not people, enabling clients to earn more money with less effort and anxiety. We earn and maintain client trust through quality product experiences built with a deep understanding of the client, close collaboration across a wide variety of functions and high visibility with the executive team. As a result of that trust, clients stay with us for a long time and give us more of their money each year. We believe that delight is the greatest form of virality; we strive to delight our clients, connecting with them emotionally, which causes our clients to tell others about us. We balance improving existing products with creating entirely new products, and we care far more about achieving a high magnitude of success on a few successful products than every product being successful.
Wealthfront is looking for a Senior Product Manager to build and scale our Cash product, a high-yield, FDIC-insured account that has amassed more than $7B in assets in less than a year - our fastest growing product ever! You’ll work with a high-performing cross-functional team to add support for direct deposit, paying bills, accessing a debit card, and other features that allow Wealthfront to become our customers’ primary institution for banking services. This product is a foundational pillar of our vision to optimize and automate all of life’s finances, something we call Self-Driving Money™. As a result, you’ll be a key contributor to our highest priority product development effort and most significant growth opportunity. Success in this role requires a healthy balance of executional excellence and product vision.

To get there, we’ll be focusing the bulk of our 2020 efforts on creating a better alternative to what the banking industry provides. Join us so you can help us turn this industry on its head and build a service that our clients don't just like, they love.
