Product Consultants

Axiom Zen HQ (Vancouver), Axiom Zen USA (San Francisco)

Axiom Zen is an award-winning venture studio. Our products have made “Best of the Year” lists (Apple; The Next Web), and are used by the world’s leading companies – including Adobe, Sony, Starbucks, Phillips, and SEGA. In 2015 alone, our work was featured in TIME, The New York Times, USA Today, and Wired. We just made the cover of Canadian Business' 2016 "Most Innovative Companies in Canada".

As Axiom Zen’s Product Consultant, you will grow your already impressive tech network and kick off exciting new products each year.

For the right applicant, this is the opportunity of a lifetime.

The Product Consultant role is part relationship-building, part product strategy. Working directly with our founders and senior team members on the front-lines of our business, you will be expected to think big and welcome feedback while following through with exceptional attention-to-detail. You will also be responsible for building relationships with fast-growing startups and the world’s leading brands, leveraging our world-class team to solve their most critical problems.

From the perspective of our partners, our Product Consultant will be considered the expert in all things startup, technology, and design. You will be expected to manage VIP relationships, confidently guide brainstorms on complex concepts, bring focus to vague visions, and quickly map user problems to specific software solutions. You may travel to San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, or internationally — whatever it takes to build relationships and close deals.

As part of making sure we deliver a positive experience to every partner that works with us, you will make sure communication between our teams is stellar. Challenges that come with innovation must excite you. You will shepherd projects from inception to MVP, market validation, and the subsequent acceleration of growth, working closely with your colleagues in charge of implementation.

 

As our Product Consultant, you have:

  • 5+ years of relevant industry experience including coordinating and leading teams
  • A passion for tech and a proclivity to geek out over the newest innovations
  • A native understanding of critical business factors that determine the success of web or mobile products
  • Experience writing for marketing purposes
  • Stellar communication skills

 

Bonus Points

  • Deep expertise in consulting, sales, and business development
  • An understanding of accounting principles
  • Previous public speaking and thought leadership experience (we’d love to see anything you can show us!)

About Us

Axiom Zen is a startup that builds startups. We specialize in new venture creation, taking ideas from paper to product-market fit. We have developed the people, processes, and perspectives necessary to successfully navigate the nexus where the latest advancements in design, engineering, and business intersect.

We believe traditional approaches to innovation have stopped working; the strategic landscape is changing too fast. By the time carefully-laid plans are implemented, they are already outdated. A successful endeavour doesn’t play catch-up!

Optimizing for impact often means working with emerging technologies (like VR and AI), but also includes advances in product, visual design, and even storytelling. Our team of fifty founder-quality engineers, designers, and product leads combine a wealth of experience from fast-growing startups as well as companies like Apple, Google, and SpaceX.

 

Salary and Benefits

Competitive salary, exceptional benefits, and generous stock / equity.

A few highlights:

  • Premium Insurance. Axiom Zen provides full health, life, and AD&D insurance as well as premium vision, dental, and extended health benefits.
  • Active Professional Development. We actively participate in the development of our team. You have access to a Professional Development budget allocated separate from your compensation to be spent on conferences, classes, books, and any other resources to maintain and expand your skill set, industry knowledge, and professional growth. Or take someone interesting to coffee for in-person learning.
  • Speaker Travel Budget. We believe strongly that all our team members should have the opportunity to become thought leaders in their fields. To support this, we have a standard policy to cover travel + accommodations for speaking engagements anywhere in the Americas and are very willing to support speaking engagements elsewhere around the world as well.
  • Mandatory 15 Off Days Per Year. We have a high standard for impact, but we insist on work-life harmony and believe in balance. Minimum of 15 off days every year, with no hard limit.
  • Transport Reimbursement. We cover public transport to work and back. If you bike to work instead, we set aside $1000/year for bike maintenance. If you walk to work, we’ll bonus you the same amount as a rental subsidy.
