About us

WaitWhat is a joyful new start-up from former TED execs June Cohen and Deron Triff. We create media properties that defy formula… content of the highest quality and originality.

We’re looking for an intellectually curious, creatively courageous Product Manager to join our small, growing team. You must love start-up culture and have an all-hands-on-deck attitude.

The product is a community-oriented media site that combines user-generated and curated content.


Hold the excitement and vision for a product amidst any of the inevitable speed bumps
Conduct interviews and document findings that get at the heart of users’ unmet needs
Distill your vision to a minimum viable product and subsequent features we can explore
Complete wireframes and a product backlog to support bringing the mvp to market
Lead agile sprints with technologists, designers and testers to bring the product to life
Create a cross-platform testing plan, test yourself and oversee testers through the project’s QA phase
Remain fearless in the face of project managing the day to day


A voracious appetite for bringing creative solutions to market
5+ years as a product manager conceiving and launching end to end products.
Excellent skills in planning, conducting and analyzing results from 1:1 user interviews
Ingenuity around defining, deploying and synthesizing results from A/B tests
Experience defining, presenting and iterating on wireframes
Proven track record creating annotated specifications and documenting user stories for engineers to develop
Background building mobile applications for IOS and Android is a plus
Experience with Github, Jira, Invision, Sketch is desireable

This is a FT contract position, based in downtown Manhattan, with the potential to become a FT staff position. We’re a startup with tight budgets, so our salaries are lower than big media companies. But we’re so much more fun to work for! Benefits include field trips, team dinners, awesome colleagues you’ll be proud to know.
