About Product Management
Our product management team sets the direction for our growing portfolio of products. As advocates of our customers, we collaborate closely with a diverse group of engineers, designers, and business partners to achieve a common goal: shipping high-quality products that help our merchants succeed.
Product managers at Xendit play the role of being the “glue” that binds many functions together in our organization. We interact with our customers, create roadmaps, analyze business processes, design user-facing flows, and facilitate with stakeholders to turn their visions into reality — while having fun along the way.
Build new products from scratch - and experiment with them until you find product-market fit
The Experiments team builds new products that are complementary to our existing suite of digital infrastructure. We take ideas, customer pain points, or gaps in the market and build a new solution from the ground up. This team presents a unique opportunity for people who are looking to build something completely new, rather than improving existing products.
As the name suggests, these products are experimental, meaning they sometimes fail. We’re therefore looking for people who can quickly recognize failure, take feedback and iterate immediately, even if it means leaving behind our previous dreams of what the product could look like.
