Product Manager, DAF Platform


At Aside, we're on a mission to help people be more generous, more often. We’re the passionate and innovative tech start-up and platform behind Daffy, a fast-growing community built around a new, modern charitable giving platform. We believe that one of the most effective ways to create change is through building new products & services that change the market. Under the hood of Daffy is the most modern and affordable donor-advised fund (DAF), an account for giving similar to a 401K for retirement or a 529 plan for college, where our generous members can proactively manage their charitable funds.

We are looking to hire our first product manager to help Daffy scale as the platform continues to grow. This role will work closely with the co-founders and executive team to define and execute on product strategy, prioritization, and execution of features focused on the scalability of our donor operations, member experience, and new features. This is not a role for the faint of heart: Daffy moves quickly and ships more new features in a year than the incumbents ship in a decade.


  • Strategy: Align teams on a shared vision and steer execution on that vision. Work with the co-founders and executive team to define and update the product strategy to help Daffy scale its product & operations through exponential growth.
  • Prioritization: Work closely with the donor operations & customer success teams to prioritize the ongoing product roadmap by categorizing issues by volume & severity and targeting the problems that have the most significant impact on our members and our organization.
  • Execution: Work closely with engineering & design to ship experiments and features that directly impact our member experience & operational scalability. Own the full product lifecycle from conception to launch, usage, and optimization.
  • Collaboration: Monitor and analyze operational data, identify trends, and collaborate with cross-functional partners for continuous improvement to create efficiency, improve lines of communication, and remove issues and blockers
  • Partnership: Constantly evaluate and explore new partnerships and platforms that can unlock new capabilities and features for both scalability and improved member experience.
