If this is you, then we’d like to have you on the team. We are Stronghold, a financial services company on a mission to provide fast, secure, and accessible financial services for all. We’re expanding fast, and we’re seeking motivated team players who can grow with our company. We’re currently looking for a proven Head of Product to drive our product strategy.

Stronghold’s Head of Product will balance customer insights, sales needs, and company vision to lead our product strategy. You will have a significant role in our Product Vision and Strategy along with leaders in Compliance, Engineering, Customer Success, and Sales.

What You'll Do

  • Bring together multiple product offerings including ACH, Cards, Loyalty, Merchant Cash Advance, Crypto, and more into a coherent overall vision to serve customers
  • Be accountable for shipping product that delivers value to our customers, increases revenue from our customers, and opens market opportunities on a regular, predictable basis
  • Create best practices and rigor in our Product Development Lifecycle (PDLC) that optimizes for impact to our customers
  • Create clarity through communication throughout the PDLC so that the entire company is clear on our product direction
  • Partner with the VP of Engineering on the multi-year vision and strategy of Stronghold, aligning near-term outcomes to long-term goals to deliver value to our customers
  • You'll start as a team-of-one, but will plan to grow a team of Product Managers
  • Work directly with key accounts and partners to gather feedback and insights on our product strategy

Who you are

  • You have 7+ years of experience in Product Management including experience in leadership roles at high-growth tech companies

  • You enjoy being hands-on even as you build out the product team and function
  • Demonstrated leadership and people management skills
  • Experience building technical platforms: You have the ability to go deep on a complex set of services and infrastructure
  • Payments and fin-tech experience is a plus; Crypto experience is a big bonus but not a requirement
  • Based in the Bay Area; We embrace a hybrid in-office and work-from-home environment
  • We're a payments company, so a quantitative degree or an MBA is a plus


  • Flexible Work Schedule: Getting the job done isn't always 9 to 5. Determine your working hours so you get things done when it works for you and your family.
  • Stock Options: We offer stock options that align with your equity mindset so you can reach our personal financial goals. Have skin in the game and feel like an owner.
  • Health Care: We provide options for Health Care that have you and your family covered. From PPOs to HMOs we have something that will work for whatever stage of life you are in.
  • Hybrid In-Office & Work From Home: We embrace the hybrid in-office and work-from-home culture.
