You will build the platform infrastructure needed to sustain a safe marketplace far into the future, and your work will ensure that our customers have great experiences with one another and our platform. You will report to the Director of Product, Trust and Safety.

Your Responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement a multi-year vision for Identity programs designed to build trust and unlock healthy growth in the marketplace, ensuring alignment between self-managed programs and those of direct report(s).Expand our identity toolkit to include a variety of friction-minimal verification options for our users.

  • Manage a product manager responsible for solving problems related to fraudulent identities
  • Provide mentorship, guidance, and direction to other product managers to ensure their success
  • Foster a culture of innovation, collaboration, and customer-centricity within the Product Management team, ensuring that user feedback, problems, and needs are at the core of our product development process.
  • Ensure representation and accuracy of programs in Operating Plans and Quarterly Business reviews.
  • Collaborate across Design, Engineering, Marketing, Research, Sales, Legal, Analytics and other teams to deliver your roadmap, and rigorously test hypotheses, iterate and learn.
  • Escalate to leadership when there are prioritization misalignments that could delay committed work.
  • Track and ensure on-time delivery of all action items from WBR, QBR, OP and related processes.
  • Define input and output metrics to measure the success of product programs, and use data-driven insights to optimize product performance and the user experience.
  • Measurably improve customer experiences while reducing fraud and abuse on Upwork.

  • Empathy for customers and an understanding of how to work with designers to deliver experiences that surprise and delight customers while creating friction and blocks for bad actors
  • Experience combining quantitative and qualitative data to frame problems and develop solutions
