Senior Product Manager



New York, NY, USA
Posted on Saturday, March 12, 2022

Coast is re-imagining the trillion-dollar U.S. B2B card payments infrastructure, with a focus on the country’s 500,000 commercial fleets, 40 million commercial vehicles, and many million commercial drivers. The incumbent technologies that cater to these customers are decades old, and drivers and fleets increasingly demand modern digital experiences and affordable and transparent financial services products. Coast's mission is to deliver them at a transformational scale, beginning with the Coast Fleet and Fuel Card built on a cutting-edge spend management platform.

This Senior Product Manager will be a very hands-on role that will steer the execution on Coast’s product, in close collaboration with the Director of Product and engineering team. You will build and ship products that will directly impact our business customers in the US, whether it’s streamlining their ability to obtain credit, building tools to help them manage their fleet expenses, or scaling our card servicing/analytics platform. If you're practical and business-minded, smart and creative, and excited about the rewards and volatility of an early-stage venture-backed startup, we'd love to hear from you.
