About Nearby

The best independent shops in your town, all together.

Job Description

Nearby was founded in May 2020 on a simple premise: people want to buy from stores that are run by people in their community. They want their money to benefit their local economy by shopping locally—and the more accessible and convenient it is, the more frequently they'll choose to do so. 

We are setting out to build a better way to shop locally—with all the conveniences and user experience you’d expect from a big tech company, but for the independent shops in local communities that have historically been left behind by them. We’re building marketplaces like our first pilot in Oakland, California: Keep Oakland Alive. And behind those marketplaces, we’re building the toolset merchants need to thrive in a hybrid offline+online world. 

Our team is composed of experienced, passionate people distributed across North America. Founded during the Covid-19 shelter-in-place, we currently all work from home and rely on tools like Slack and Zoom to support our work style, which is collaborative yet values self-initiative. That’s where you come in.


We are looking for a seasoned product manager -- our first product manager on the team. You bring years of relevant experience and a passion for continual improvement. You have built and managed products used by people at scale and relish the opportunity to build something new from the ground up. 

As a member of our highly motivated team, you should be dedicated to excellence and have a strong sense of personal responsibility and drive. You place a high value on understanding the end customer, their goals, spoken and unspoken, and what motivates them. You bring clarity to ambiguity and organization to chaos. You embrace a startup mentality and are proficient at achieving results in an environment of ambiguity and shifting priorities.


  • Define the shopper- and merchant-facing product experience.
  • Report to and work closely with our founder and CEO, April Underwood, on product strategy and company-level priorities. 
  • Partner with engineering and design to chart a roadmap and execution plan which will help us exceed the expectations of our customers and create vocal fans of Nearby everywhere.
  • Through consistent, high-quality communication and leadership, sets a steady drumbeat which helps the entire team - and company - hit its goals.
  • Be an active champion for high quality software design.
  • Be an active champion for our values and mission.
  • This is a full-time position. We are not looking for a contractor.


  • Minimum 5 years product management experience
  • Experience managing software products used by millions of users
  • Experience in eCommerce valued but not required
  • High degree of user empathy, perhaps informed by personal experience in retail or eCommerce
  • Team player with exceptional communication and interpersonal skills
  • Comfortable working from home 
  • Located between Pacific and Eastern time zones


  • We value your contributions to the team! That's why we offer full medical, dental, vision, life insurance, and competitive pay.
  • We love to embrace your multitudes! You're a whole person, after all, and our team is full of parents, activists, and creatives.
  • We not only believe in work/life balance, we believe in having a fulfilling life outside of work! Stay mentally healthy, take a vacation, connect with your family + community as much as you need to.
  • We're all working from home, but we still want to provide you with the equipment you need to be productive, comfortable, and ergonomically sound. To this end, we offer a reimbursement allowance for setting up your workspace along with a monthly phone/internet stipend.
