Manager, Collective (Investment Product Manager)

At Unreasonable, we believe high-growth for-profit solutions are one of the most effective and scalable ways to solve pressing social and environmental challenges. Every day, our team strives to give the entrepreneurs we work with an “unfair advantage.” We do this by connecting them with our networks of mentors, investors, business leaders, and policy makers who can help them scale their businesses faster and more effectively. Today, the over 200 CEO’s in the Unreasonable Fellowship have raised more than $4.5B in financing, generated more than $3.5B in revenue, and are measurably impacting the lives of more than 530 million individuals in nearly every country and territory worldwide.

We’re now searching for a product manager to lead in the implementation and management of our private investor club, Unreasonable Collective. The Manager will be tasked with facilitating the end to end curation of Unreasonable Collective - product definition, launch to market, marketing to and recruitment of initial Members, and then once up and running, managing the Member experience throughout their Membership lifecycle. This role is all about setting the tone for the kind of exceptional community that we already are, and the unprecedented one we strive to become – essentially, living and breathing the Unreasonable values. We will know we’re on the right track when editors of major publications and organizers of gatherings like TED and Davos approach us as the go-to leaders in what it takes to build one of the most purposeful and effective investment communities on the planet.
