We believe in the everyday hero. Those who have the courage to follow their passion and who have the strength and determination to realise their dreams.

Small business owners are at the heart of all we do, so we're creating powerful, easy-to-use financial solutions to help them run their businesses. With a founder’s mentality and a 'team-first’ attitude, our diverse teams across Europe, South America and the United States work together to ensure that small business owners can be successful doing what they love.

SumUp’s Online Payments tribe enables merchants to offer state-of-the-art payment solutions for their online businesses. This tribe plays a key role in working towards SumUp’s vision of operating a 360° full circle payments solution provider.

In this role as Senior Product Manager you’ll be a strategic leader for one of our squads, partnering with a Senior Engineering Manager and reporting to the VP of Product.

  • Take ownership of the full PDLC for our Machine Learning Platform for fraud prevention and risk management from scratch

  • Hold your team members accountable and create a strong two-way feedback loop

  • Grow SumUp’s Online Payments product development globally

  • Deliver innovative products for SumUp’s partner portfolio; from banks and associations to leading software providers and global enterprises

  • Collaborate with Talent Acquisition to hire and onboard software developers and quality engineers by taking care of headcount planning, defining needed skills, interviewing, preparing onboarding plans for new hires, and following up on learning and integration

  • Work hands-on with the team to manage the end-to-end process: build pipelines and data models, synthesise results, build dashboards and reports

  • Measure the impact of both existing and new product features and growth experiments on our key metrics

You’ll be great for this position if

  • You have at least 7+ years of relevant experience as product manager. You need to have a strong understanding about product methodology throughout the full PDLC.

  • You bring a fundamental understanding of online payments and have a proven track record working at a PSP - Payment Service Provider.

  • You are an expert in risk- and fraud management in digital payments.

  • You have a proven track record in launching products from scratch to execution.

  • You have defined product vision and strategy for your domain, and are confident communicating the rationale behind product decisions to engineering teams and stakeholders.

  • You have outstanding communication skills, and will thrive in a consensus-driven culture where a diversity of perspectives is cherished (English is a must-have, any other languages would be a plus).

  • You have an intuitive understanding of the importance of data in understanding trends, providing actionable insights, and tracking the success of those initiatives.

Why you should join SumUp

  • We have a dedicated annual budget for attending conferences and advancing your career through further education. We encourage you to speak at conferences and give talks.

  • You’ll attend a weekly Lunch and Learn session, where the local engineering team exchanges ideas over company-sponsored lunch.

  • You’ll attend annual hackathons with the engineering teams from Berlin, Cologne, Sofia, and São Paulo.

  • You’ll be part of a close, welcoming and international community. We get together regularly for brunches, cocktail nights, football, office events, AMA sessions, training, German lessons and yoga classes.

  • We offer numerous other benefits such as Urban Sports Club subsidy, corporate pension scheme, Kita placement assistance, relocation assistance, 2x per week subsidised office lunches, and a gorgeous place to work in the heart of Berlin at Alexanderplatz.
