Senior Product Manager - Global Expansion Tribe

We’re looking for a Product Manager to join our new Global Expansion and Acquiring Tribe, whose goal is to launch and scale new markets on a global scale (LATAM, APAC, EMEA etc). Our team is in charge of defining strategy and delivering products and services for those targeted markets.   

We leverage all products features built within SumUp and adjust and localise them for new markets using our acquiring and banking partners – from a merchant’s first user experience in our app, to making their first sale, to getting their first payout. The engineering expansion squad in the Tribe focuses on making that experience seamless, intuitive, and hassle-free. 

SumUp currently offers our products and services in over 30 countries around the world. Country expansion is one of our success factors and a pillar in our growth strategy. You’ll be responsible for driving the expansion value stream at SumUp, assisting as we set foot into new countries, with a vision to achieve global coverage.

What you’ll do

  • Work as part of a cross-functional team to create the necessary tools and technical framework to allow SumUp to launch in new markets quickly and efficiently
  • Take charge of coordinating country launch system setup activities on a tribe and cross-tribe level
  • Build an expansion platform that allows us to tackle internationalisation, customisation, and country-specific regulatory challenges
  • Design and build acquiring and settlement platforms that satisfy various business requirements and user needs; drive the testing, implementation, and post-production support
  • Gather requirements and scope projects, facilitate discussions and drive resolution of issues
  • Help form a technical expansion team to develop the platform

You’ll be great for this position if

  • You have 5+ years in Product Management in an Agile organisation
  • You’re fluent in English, both spoken and written – any other languages are a plus.
  • You have experience with country expansion or localisation projects.
  • You have a solid track record in incremental software development with a focus on value.
  • You have experience in working closely with software development teams in a product owner/project manager capacity.
  • You have experience with integrations.

Why you should join SumUp

  • A dedicated annual budget for attending conferences and advancing your career through further education. We encourage you to speak at conferences and give talks
  • Weekly Lunch and Learn session, where the local engineering team exchanges ideas over company-sponsored lunch
  • Dedicated time every other week for side-projects and open source initiatives
  • Annual hackathons, where the engineering teams from Berlin, Cologne, Sofia, and São Paulo gather together
  • We have a close, welcoming and international community. We get together regularly for brunches, cocktail nights, football, office events, AMA sessions, training, German classes, and yoga classes
  • Numerous other benefits such as Urban Sports Club subsidy, Corporate Pension Scheme, Kita placement assistance, relocation assistance, 2x per week subsidized office lunches, and a gorgeous place to work in the heart of Berlin at Alexanderplatz
