We have big hopes for our products here at BeBanjo, and we are looking for a talented Product Manager to help make them a reality.
You are empathetic and curious, never settling for the answers that leave you wondering.
You are supportive and trusting of others. Through collaboration, you come to conclusions on the challenges that are worth solving. You communicate your direction clearly, convincingly and where relevant - with data.
You have a solid background working with digital products and have worked with, or in product teams for at least two years. You have experience with web technologies and modern web products. You understand how digital products are made and you have some experience with modern software development practices like Continuous Integration/Delivery, Kanban, etc.
You enjoy framing and tackling complex problems. You are great at thinking on your feet, and inspire confidence in internal and external stakeholders alike. You anticipate implementation challenges, call on the expertise of the product designers and developers at the appropriate times, and support them during the implementation. When people ask why their work matters to our customers and our business, you can help them understand.
Our customers are based primarily in Western Europe and the US. You will work from where you want, but you should have enough overlap with business hours in Europe and be prepared to travel to meet and speak with our customers on a semi-regular basis.
At BeBanjo, we strive to make our customers great at putting video content online. We build easy to use, powerful web applications to manage TV and video on-demand (VOD) services. Our customers are broadcasters, Hollywood studios and platform operators across the globe. Our tools are at the heart of the ongoing revolution in the way films, TV series and other media content are produced, distributed and consumed.
We work fully remotely using Slack, GitHub, Zoom and our homemade tools. But if we feel like going to an office, we have one in London, one in Madrid and another in LA. We host get-togethers in sunny Madrid from time to time because it’s not always easy to bond with your colleagues over a video-chat!
BeBanjo is not a VC-funded startup. Don’t expect parties, video-games or a gym at the office. We were bootstrapped ten years ago, and we’re proud to have built a growing and sustainable business. We value honest, long-term relationships with our staff and our customers.
We care about nurturing an environment where our best work can happen. We’re kind to each other, encourage each other and look after each other. We’re open and collaborative, we listen to everyone and aim for understanding when making decisions.
We don’t work with impossible deadlines. We do not micro-manage people. We treat all staff like grown-ups, and we trust each person to work when and from where they wish. We don’t value long working hours. We believe in using our time efficiently and enjoying a good work-life balance.
We firmly believe in equal opportunities and continuously foster a workplace that is safe and inclusive for everyone. A diverse team makes better decisions, is more creative and adapts better to change. Our motivation though, is more profound than that: we think the lack of diversity in our industry is the symptom of some severe flaws in our society, and we’re committed to doing our part in the ongoing global effort to fix them.

How to apply
We know applying for a job can be time-consuming and stressful and we will do our best to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the process.
We want you to succeed, and so, we made our recruiting process more like it is working at BeBanjo in reality: flexible (you’ll have options in some steps of the process, and we’ll adapt to your schedules), asynchronous (we’ll minimise calls and interviews), and certain (you’ll know what to expect about each step of the process).
Still here? Good! Drop us an email. Tell us a bit about yourself and your background, why you are interested in the position, what your expectations for the job are, and what you will bring to our team. We value good writing and attention to detail, so please take your time with the cover letter. Tell us about previous projects that you helped shape and how you made teams run smoothly.
We are accepting applications for this position until February 6th 2021.
We’ll let you know that we received your application but, to give everyone a fair chance to apply, we’ll probably not get back to you again until after the deadline passes.
