The Role

WayBetter has an exciting opportunity for an experienced, inventive, and entrepreneurial Product Owner to oversee our popular DietBet suite of products.

  • Create comprehensive project specifications

  • You’ve played a lead role in the product development life cycle (conception to ideation to execution to iteration) for at least two consumer products.

  • You’ve collaborated with cross-functional teams (developers, designers, brand and content marketers, partners, and affiliates) to ship world-class products.

  • You know Minimum Viable Product-based product development backward and forward. You can iterate on products and increase effectiveness however it’s defined—retention, new consumers, profitability, and beyond.

WayBetter? Yes!

The bottom line is that we’re building the kind of company we want to work for, one with enduring value, inspiring co-workers, and happy customers.
