Director of Product, Growth

San Francisco, California, United States · Div. Product



Founded in Tokyo in 2012, SmartNews has quickly become the go-to source of news for millions of users around the world, and a leading news aggregation mobile app. Our mission is bigger than simply aggregating news, and we are working to break through the filter bubble and deliver the world’s quality information to the people who need it. We are seeking a talented, strategic product director with a “get-it-done” attitude to lead our US growth strategies and roadmap. Join us and make a difference!


Let’s be honest, “growth” is a loaded word in a startup. Who doesn’t want to grow and shouldn’t growth be integrated at every stage of the user’s journey? You understand that growth is a mindset, not simply a role or job description. You believe that there is a science to building the growth engine that fuels the magic of product innovation, and that sustainable growth comes from a laser focus on the unit economics at the top and bottom of the user funnel, from acquisition and onboarding to retention and reactivation. You push for new ways to think outside of the box and will own and build out the growth team roadmap, processes and capabilities to deliver measurable impact.
