The Company

At Star, we connect strategy, insights, design and engineering into a seamless workflow devised to support our clients every step of the way — no matter how long or complex their journey.

We anchor everything we do in clear and compelling endgames, which in turn enable our multidisciplinary teams to create superior solutions and impressive commercial returns for our clients.

Star is truly global.

That is why we are the first global consultancy that does not have a headquarters location. Instead, we have many front doors, spanning Silicon Valley, Tokyo, London, Munich, Milan, Copenhagen, Kyiv, Wroclaw, Ho Chi Minh City, and other design, technology, and creative hubs around the world.

Our spirited and growing Star Crew takes great pride in working side-by-side with their counterparts at some of the world’s most disruptive “unicorn” startups and iconic brands like Lufthansa, NTT Data, Paidy, Zeiss, Xerox, Panasonic, Walmart, Analog Devices, BMW Group, SAIC, NIO, Skin Analytics, Lotus and Dolby.

Our mission is to make every great person, every great idea and every great company shine. That’s why we’re called Star.

We are looking for you!

Friday PM is a SaaS B2B start-up aiming to challenge the status quo of how people experience corporate offices. We have already signed clients representing worldwide enterprises and are looking to scale our success and grow our SaaS business profitably.

We’re looking for an empathetic and result-oriented Product Manager to join our team. This opportunity is a highly-visible role that spans multiple touch-points, including product management, client relationship and process excellence.

We’re a dynamic team of 20 people competing in the growing “Future of Work” software market projected to reach $81 Billion by 2025.

Using computer vision and AI-enabled algorithms, we analyze office space and employees’ working modes, then recommend a workplace model custom-tailored to how people work. Our platform helps midsize enterprises to unveil the uncertainties about adjusting workspaces to the new reality and help their people to be at their natural best.

In our case, ML, AI, and computer vision are not just a set of buzzwords.

Skills and experience you can bring to this role!

Qualifications and experience:

  • Minimum of 4 years of relevant experience;
  • An advanced level of English is a must;
  • Strong communication skills with all parties involved in a project, including clients, stakeholders and internal teams, and intuition for appropriate communication strategies;
  • Ability to conceptualize, manage, and prioritize multiple projects for stakeholders;
  • You are proactive and self-directed in learning;
  • Detail-oriented with superior organizational skills — balancing multiple projects, deadlines, and requests should be second nature to you;
  • You have practical experience in effective collaboration in a multicultural environment, building trust with various team members and working with distributed virtual teams;
  • You are the champion of excellent user experiences; and
  • You thrive in a busy working environment.
  • “Can do” attitude. You don’t mind going above and beyond your job description; you roll up your sleeves and pitch in where needed.
  • Preference for action. You don’t wait to take action until you get all the details; you are comfortable acting with only 65% complete knowledge and discovering the rest on the go.
  • Natural leader. You are eager to share your knowledge and experience, directing and inspiring a team to reach milestones.
  • Adaptability. You can operate in the space of ambiguity, quickly process new information and use it to influence your actions, even if it’s a U-turn.
  • Collaboration. You communicate clearly, actively listen to others, take responsibility for mistakes, and respect the diversity of your colleagues.
  • Intellectual powerhouse. You are driven to get smarter and better at what you do; you’re fond of picking up new responsibilities and wearing multiple hats.
