Mys Tyler - Product Lead
Mys Tyler is the first social-commerce platform to serve up body-relevant fashion content. We are creating a place where all women can feel represented, see clothing on women who look similar and by doing so turn fashion inspiration into something that is also accessible and actionable. We believe when it comes to finding and buying clothes that fit, the most important filter is your physical characteristics and as a result, we believe our body quiz and Fit algorithm will help the industry tackle the issue of bad fit leading to high return rates (a cost approaching $1 trillion a year). As such, our solution will help create a better experience for women, remove costly inefficiencies for the industry and the environment.
The role We are looking for an experienced Product Lead to play an integral role in defining, driving and executing our product roadmap. Joining us in this early stage you’ll play a pivotal role in shaping our product vision and collaborate across all areas of the business as we define our company.
Reporting to the CEO, you will work closely with acquisition marketing and community management to understand the broad priorities for the business, and use a combination of data and direct engagement with our users to apply a design-thinking approach to our product strategy. You will be responsible for prioritizing and scheduling our sprints and managing the engineering team to deliver upon this. This opportunity will suit someone who is looking to get their hands dirty, and over time grow out a team, ensuring that our foundations are solid and well thought out to allow us to scale.
An eye for design is also critical, as our users will have high expectations and our mobile app, and supporting touch points including our website will need to be seamless, engaging and beautiful - this may require managing a freelance UI/UX designer.
While we want someone who can be a perfectionist, we’re also looking for a realist that has been in a startup environment and is able to balance the need to move fast and learn, with taking ownership for delivering a beautiful and joyful experience. To this point, we are looking for someone who thrives in a startup environment, where things move fast, change often, responsibilities are shared and go beyond the job description, and where we can work as a team to make Mys Tyler the next tech unicorn.
