Who We Are:
At The Financial Gym, we are putting the ‘personal’ back into ‘personal finance’. We are a woman-owned and operated financial services company, focused on providing affordable and comprehensive financial planning for everyone. We’re committed to helping everyone get financially fit so they can achieve balance, decrease stress and become empowered by their money.
About the Role:
We’re looking for a Product Manager to come in and make an immediate impact by building tools that aid our Financial Trainers in providing a highly personalized client experience and boost productivity as we rapidly expand.

Operate a cross-functional unit in an agile setting, with well-defined sprints, clear product backlogs, and forward-looking plans that align to your mission and success metrics
Be the point-person on application integration with third-party vendors
Additional hats you may need to wear in the early stage: project manager, tech lead, research facilitator, and assist in reporting and prioritizing bugs and errors from the rest of the team.
Proven work experience in product management or as an associate product manager
Proven track record of managing all aspects of a successful product throughout its lifecycle
Proven ability to develop product and marketing strategies and effectively communicate recommendations to executive management
