Product Manager - Roaster Partnerships

San Francisco, California, United States · Product


We’re looking for an analytical and execution-focused Product Manager with a passion for specialty coffee and/or CPG products to scale our Roaster Partnerships business line.

In the last 6 months, Sudden Coffee has started a new Roaster Partnerships business-line, creating products for coffee roasters like Equator, Intelligentsia, Ritual, & Chromatic. The Roaster Partnerships PM will play a pivotal role in running & scaling this new business unit, taking us from 5 to 50 roasters in the next 6 months.

You will shape everything from the packaging & product offerings to the on-boarding & operational processes to launch new coffee roasters on the Sudden platform.

You will leverage a combination of analytical models, customers insights, and design to scale this new business line. You will get to lead multiple initiatives across all functions of the organization and have end-to-end ownership of many of these projects. As the business line grows, you'll be able to build your own team - ideally within 6 months.

You will learn how to build and launch products with rapid iteration, how to build & scale a business line, how to leverage brand & design in building physical products, and everything you could ever dream of knowing about coffee!

This is the perfect role for a management consultant looking to transition into product management + the startup world.
