Product Manager (PM) – Platform
In the rapidly-evolving world of web3 protocols, infrastructure projects, and dApp communities, the increasing complexity of discerning valuable signals from raw on-chain data is a pressing concern. These entities, rooted in the ethos of decentralization, recognize the paramount importance of crowd-sourced solutions.
Transitioning to the broader landscape, traditional businesses across diverse verticals face similar challenges. For smaller entities, the barrier to entry is high, often leading to prolonged trial-and-error phases and the daunting task of attracting top-tier data scientists and ML engineers. Similarly, more established entities may be restricted to a single ML approach, limiting their perspective. Conversely, there’s a worldwide global community of data scientists and ML engineers (who we call ‘modelers’) seeking to refine their ML expertise, engage with compelling real-world problems, network and collaborate with similar-minded individuals, and ultimately, receive a fair and sustainable compensation for their intellectual contributions.
At Spectral, we are building a platform that can connect modelers and creators. Our mission is to pioneer ML-powered insights’ initiation, protection, dissemination, and consumption within an ownership economy. We believe in credible neutrality, ensuring that all interactions, even between unfamiliar actors, are rooted in trust and security. Our platform is designed to empower businesses and innovators to collaboratively transform challenges into opportunities, reshaping the future of collaborative problem-solving.
As a Product Manager (PM) at Spectral, you’ll spearhead product development, from discovery to market launch, shaping the future of decentralized problem-solving. You will be working closely with the Engineering, Data Science, and GTM teams to manage and refine product feature requirements, maintain the Spectral roadmap, manage project risks, and track progress. You will have an opportunity to work with internal and external stakeholders and influence Spectral short and long-term vision. This position reports directly to the CEO.

- Minimum of 5 years of experience in product management, preferably in fast-paced tech or web3 companies. Experience in a data science or competitive ML company is a plus.
- Demonstrated ability to lead cross-functional teams and drive product development from concept to launch.
- Strong technical acumen, with the ability to influence technical discussions, designs, and architectures.
- Exceptional communication skills, both written and oral, with the ability to translate non-technical requirements into technical specifications.
- Proven experience in risk management and project tracking.
