MyTime is a fully integrated scheduling, payments, and automated marketing platform, specializing in large multi-location chains and franchises. Our mission critical software -- which includes in-store scheduling and online booking, client record management, email and SMS marketing, and a full point of sale for handling payments -- is used in every aspect of the customer journey. Our customers rely on their service businesses to remain competitive in the age of Amazon, and they need a next generation POS to help them achieve this growth. We aspire to be the “operating system” of their business.
We also made it easy to plug our online booking, payments and messaging capabilities into the places customers are found today, including Google Search, Facebook, Instagram, and the merchants’ own websites and mobile apps. Upon adopting MyTime, our customers see average revenue growth of up to 30% through improved operational efficiency, greater customer retention, and access to new customer acquisition channels.
Our product is used at over 14,000 locations across the globe, ranging from single-location sole proprietors to multi-billion dollar Fortune 500 chains. As a completely cloud-based solution, MyTime is designed for quick and easy deployments. It’s lauded for its ease-of-use and short ramp-up time, having won numerous awards such as the Best Commerce Product of 2017 from the Local Search Association.
MyTime is backed by Upfront Ventures and Khosla Ventures and was founded by Ethan Anderson, a successful serial entrepreneur whose first startup, Redbeacon, won TechCrunch50 in 2009 and was acquired by The Home Depot.
Come help us realize our vision of becoming the world’s leading online scheduling and local commerce platform!
MyTime is, at its heart, a product-driven organization because it delivers the most critical functions that allow a business to run from scheduling clients to taking payments. You will need to take full ownership of the development of specific areas of the product from strategy to execution.
You will be responsible for gathering and documenting customer requirements and translating them into stories for our design and development teams. From there, you’ll be expected to establish goals, use cases, and KPI metrics, and work to ensure timely, defect-free launches. Finally, you’ll work closely with your peers in Product Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success to ensure customers are aware of upcoming changes to the product so as to minimize disruption to their day-to-day operations.
You should also make meaningful contributions to the development process improvements, influence the product roadmap, and take part in every step of development and post-development, as you continue tracking KPIs and customer satisfaction.
At the end of the day, the Director of Product Management is expected to do whatever it takes to make our product and team successful, whether that means writing a QA plan or working late at night with a remote team member who needs to understand the details of a feature.
