Growsari is hiring Product Associates to help us execute our vision and roadmap across our various platforms (e-commerce, fintech, logistics and internal tools) and work with other product managers, engineers and partners in executing them.

What is Growsari?

Sari Sari stores are the largest retail channel and source of employment in the country, yet the average store owner barely makes ends meet. This is a disconnect that we want to change.

Our teams help stores digitally procure goods for their stores at better prices and free delivery. We then use that same infrastructure to offer hundreds of new ways for stores to earn, such as upgrading them to bills payment and wallet top up points, e-commerce drop-offs, wi-fi hotspots and even ATMs for their communities.

Today marks 5 years in operation. From doing the first deliveries in our own cars, we are now the market leaders in our space, and have assembled an amazing team of alumni from Uber, Boston Consulting Group, Unilever, P&G, Pay Maya, GCash… and even ex Sari Sari store owners.

It’s been quite a journey and you can read more about our story in TechCrunch, The Ken or watch this intro on Youtube

What Challenge Will You Need To Solve?

We solve problems for our Sari Sari store owners, with the goal to make each peso in their pocket go further.  Our platforms are the enablers for this – the foundational technology and processes that allow us to launch new products for our stores to access, transact and engage with. 

 

We are looking for unique solutions that reflect the realities of running a sari sari store. The order volumes, frequencies and other service design aspects of the experience are very different from a typical e-commerce or consumer wallet transaction. These unique challenges require interesting approaches to solve them and just replicating what the other big superapp, e-commerce or wallet players won’t cut it!

Who We Are Looking For?

Responsibilities

  • Work with teams to plan and execute our platform roadmaps: Work with various teams in the ideation of features to build on the mobile platform, and then lead the full process of planning, testing, building, and launching theses feature into market
  • Ensure we are making good platform decisions: Constantly re-prioritize your roadmap and executions based on engagement with stakeholders (growth, operations, engineering, design, QA, data) and use analytics tools and user testing to make smarter, more data-informed decisions

Qualifications

  • You have a persistent and problem solver attitude: You have demonstrated the ability to solve the complex and unstructured challenges
  • You have worked within broader teams: You know how to work within a broader team to solve design problems, since you will be working closely with design, operations, product, engineering and data colleagues to unlock the your roadmap 
  • You want to empower the underserved: You are driven by helping to empower our store owners, and have a vision and ideas of how design can help do that
  • Basic technical aptitude: While you don’t need to be an expert, you should be able to work with and understand the various technical teams who will help develop your platforms

What Can You Expect From Us?

  • A melting pot of different industries: There are not many other companies where you get a unique combination of fintech, e-commerce, and social impact
  • A diverse team: You will hear accents from all corners of the Philippines as well as the rest of Southeast Asia, Africa, India, and North America
  • A Philippines first approach: We build everything in house, from the ground up. No waiting on the regional prioritization and resourcing that you often experience in other big regional tech companies in the Philippines
  • Freedom on how you want to work: Your choice on preferred software and when you come into office. As long as you deliver results, we don’t care about the time card or when you want to take leave. For this role we are also happy to consider candidates based outside of the Philippines who are willing to work remotely
  • A buddy on your first day: To get you up to speed and introduced to the broader team
