    Junior Product Manager

    About Electrum

    Electrum is an exciting B2B tech company working with some of South Africa’s biggest household names. We love that the projects we work on touch the lives of millions of South Africans every day, making a real difference – whether that’s giving an aspiring businesswoman access to banking for the first time, or distributing government financial aid to thousands of students.

    About the Role

    Are you a young, driven and enthusiastic Business Analyst or Software Engineer wanting to make the transition to Product Management? We are looking for a candidate to join our product team to be trained to become a Product Manager over the course of a year. Your role will be to work with our existing Product Managers and one of our Engineering teams to deliver on the roadmap for one of our product lines.

    You'll also have the opportunity to be exposed to a wide range of the functions within Electrum - from Business Development, to Sales & Marketing, Engineering and Technical Operations - and directly with our customers.

    The role focusses on the delivery phase of our product lifecycle.
    This role is not suitable to candidates who have not worked directly within a software delivery team.

    Bachelor's Degree in Science, Engineering, Economics, or Finance, or the equivalent in working experience.
    Minimum 4 years experience in the field of software delivery
    Excellent verbal and written communication skills
    Curious about technology and its application to payments and transaction processing.
    A good work-life balance is very important at Electrum. You know when your brain has switched off for the day and you need to go for a surf, but you also know when the status report you have written is sloppy. At Electrum you will be expected to know when you deserve a surf and when you need to knuckle down and get the work done. For the more “knuckle down” days we make it worth your while with benefits such as:

    Onsite gym and shower facilities
    Daily cooked lunches and a stocked kitchen for the mid-day nibbles
    A rad coffee station where you can practice your cappuccino foam art
    Understanding that if an emergency comes up, family comes first
    Flexible work hours
    A recreational area with foosball, table tennis and fatsaks that are perfect for naps
    To make sure that we stay a tight knit team, but still get to that surfing we have benefits such as:

    Company getaways
    Team socialising, hikes, getaways, and dinners
    We have created a safe, transparent environment where:

    We know mistakes happen, and that’s okay. We even have a 3 step approach to dealing with them:
    1- Tell everyone about it
    2 - Fix mistake
    3 - Tell everyone about it
    You are responsible for your actions – both the successes and the failures
    We talk openly about salaries and bonuses. At Electrum we believe it’s evident why some people earn more and others a bit less. It’s like being on a sports team where salaries are widely known.
