Job Description

Do you believe that people should compassionately support one another to create a better world? Well, we do!

Serving as the world’s most trusted fundraising platform, GoFundMe is committed to creating a better world by making it safe and easy for people to support causes they’re passionate about. When someone sees a need—whether it’s in their neighborhood or across the globe—they can turn their compassion into action through GoFundMe. Our customers have raised over $10 billion for their personal causes, making GoFundMe a top 200 website in the US based on traffic, with a monthly audience of over 100 million people. 

We’re searching for an eager Product Manager to own our customer messaging and notification infrastructure. This individual would be responsible for all of our initiatives around sending emails, SMS, push notifications and sharing to other platforms which includes internal services as well as product surfaces such as tools for our communications team (pitching campaigns) and email management. 

We're looking for a Product Manager to quarterback our next-generation communication platform to drive even more personalization, scale, engagement, and resiliency. How do we take our customer conversations to the next level?

The Job...

  • Drive continuous improvement across channel KPIs including deliverability, open rates, click-to-open rates, conversion rates, opt-out rates, and revenue.
  • Working with messaging partners, such as engineering and design, you will own the roadmap and execution for notifications infrastructure in order to improve deliverability and diagnostics across multiple platforms.
