We are looking for a Director of Product.

Overview

Ganaz is the workforce management platform built for deskless workers in the agriculture and food manufacturing industries. There are 2.7B deskless workers globally, and agricultural workers make up the largest segment of that workforce at 900 million workers. Software tools built for white collar just don’t work for agricultural workers that are often lower literacy, migrant, unbanked, and not accustomed to using email and apps. But these workers did get their first cell phone in the last 5-10 years so there’s an opportunity to connect with this workforce for the first time. Today, our product includes:

  • A mass communication tool with translation into more than a dozen languages.

  • A retention tool that allows workers to anonymously express their opinion about how to improve the workplace.

  • A digital employee onboarding & training tool that makes hiring dozens of workers at a time easy and makes Ganaz the system of record for their employee data.

  • In early 2021 we’ll be launching a paycard product with integrated remittances.

We’re working with some of the largest and best brands in the industry already, and there are more than 100,000 workers on our platform in the US and Mexico. Our tech stack includes ReactJS, Redux, Redux-Saga, TypeScript, Go, PostgreSQL, GraphQL, Kubernetes, Terraform, AWS (SQS, Lambda, DynamoDB, etc).

We are seeking a Director of Product to provide product leadership for our fast-paced, high growth company. The role will own the product portfolio, partnering closely with the CEO on the product vision and with engineering and key cross-functional teams to conceive, develop, and ensure successful deployment of innovative software capabilities that map to customer and market needs.
