WellSaid Labs is looking to hire an experienced Product Manager to define, lead, and manage company-wide product efforts, helping to imagine the future of voice content production tools.

We have developed breakthrough Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that creates synthetic, realistic speech from text. You will help develop WellSaid Studio powered by this technology, enabling creatives to make lifelike voice over for content, products, and experiences.

Who we are

Our startup spun out from Paul Allen's Institute for AI (AI2) in 2018, where we developed a state-of-the-art deep learning model that can read text in a completely human-like voice.

We firmly believe in AI for good. Creatives around the globe use Studio to create compelling employee training, design unique digital experiences, and narrate audiobooks. We enable creatives by putting high-tech, human parity technology into their hands, giving them the ability to add voice-over to any project and iterate with ease.

We have secured tens of millions of dollars in funding from top-tier VCs, and are looking to expand our team.

Our work has been featured in TechCrunch (1, 2, 3), GeekWire (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), CNN, MIT Technology Review, Venture Beat and we are one of three Seattle companies to make CB Insights’ list of the top 100 world’s most promising AI startups.

What we value

AI for good. Technology should be empowering, engaging, and fair to all people. Through consent and transparency in data usage, we build secure systems that protect user privacy. We strive to hold ourselves accountable for the algorithms we deploy, and we uphold the principles of the Hippocratic Oath.

Your perks and benefits
  • Competitive salaries and stock options.

What you'll do
    • As a Product Manager, your role will be to ensure WellSaid deeply understands the needs of our customers, and you will use that understanding to partner with engineering and design in the creation and execution of our product roadmap.

    • Capture insights from growth test successes and failures, and communicate them to the broader team.
    • Deliver product experiences that delight our users and demonstrate meaningful impact on growth acceleration.
    • Demonstrate a deep understanding of market and technology trends and competitive landscape.
What you'll have
  • Senior product management experience at a similar stage company.

  • Experience using analytics and business intelligence platforms to write reports and perform cohort analysis - in short, you are technical. You are familiar with the common SaaS KPIs.
  • Clear, direct communication skills (written and verbal) and you collaborate well with a diverse set of interest groups (engineers, designers, executives).
