Every restaurant owner’s worst nightmare
Senior Product Manager
Bias for Action
Empathy, Trust, and Candor
Always be Learning
Running a restaurant is no picnic. You have to worry about the quality of your ingredients, cash flow, health inspectors and even the weather. But arguably the biggest nightmare is staffing. Not just finding good people in the first place, but figuring out what to do when the dishwasher, the line cook, and the hostess all call in sick on your busiest night of the week.
You could spend hours on the phone looking for someone, or with a few quick taps on Instawork, book a vetted, qualified staffer instantly. They call it the “Uber for Staffing”, and it works like a charm. They’ve launched in the biggest cities in the US, and are quickly expanding nationally, with aims to go global quickly.
The company recently announced their $18M Series B round with Google Ventures, Spark Capital and Benchmark (Bill Gurley), and has been funded by some of the greatest investors in Silicon Valley: Y Combinator, SV Angel, Crunchfund, Steve Chen (co-founder of YouTube), Mike Vernal (VP of Product at Facebook), and many more. They also have a stellar leadership team, including:
Sumir Meghani, CEO: Harvard and Stanford alumni
Debarshi Kar, CTO: ex-GSN
Carlton Robinson, Head Finance: ex-Yahoo
Deb Sharkey, Head Operations and Growth: ex-COO Eventbrite, ex-VP e-Bay
Lalit Patel, Country Head India: ex-GSN
Vaibhav Pandey, Director of Product at Instawork, is looking for a Senior Product Manager to help scale their growing product team. In this role, you'll:
Work closely with the entire organization - set product strategy with the executive team, talk to customers to understand their problems, build out features with design and engineering, and work directly with operations and sales teams to scale the business.
Solve challenging "zero to one" problems that haven’t been solved before- no trivial flow optimizations or playing with the color of the primary buttons
Have flexibility in your work schedule- it's an output-driven culture at the forefront of the gig economy, with flexibility at its core
