Product Manager

Come and make a real impact in one of New Zealand's rising tech stars, helping over 33,000 farms across the world manage their financial performance and be better, more profitable, and sustainable operations now and for future generations.

We have taken our vision from Aotearoa to the world and now have teams across Australia, the United Kingdom and North America.

As a company, we pride ourselves on people-first culture; we provide unique opportunities that are equally challenging and rewarding and an environment where people are celebrated for the impact they make, encouraged to bring their whole selves to work and supported to grow and develop.

Figured

Figured is a SaaS platform that works with their cloud accounting software, to enable Farmers, Accountants, Bankers and their advisors to work together on a single set of financial data, bringing together production information with financial data to create a clear picture of the farms financial position, variance to budget and forecast position.

One of the biggest causes of stress for farmers comes from not knowing their financial position, not feeling in control, and not feeling supported. Figured provides peace of mind by providing them with clarity and control, and by connecting them to their financial advisors.

Perhaps you’re tired of the corporate machine and are wanting to get involved in a high- growth product-led company where you can get stuck in and make a real difference, fast!
