At Jurisage, we're solving the problems that keep lawyers up at night — literally. Our growing startup is building a first-of-its kind platform that lets legal teams share and reuse their legal research, and transform paper processes into seamless digital ones. Canada’s largest law firms use our tools to help their lawyers see the big picture, work faster, and go home early — and with a recent funding round in hand, we're putting the pieces in place to expand internationally. This is a chance to bring the legal profession into the digital age, ship a product to paying users who can’t live without it, and help write the playbook for the next billion-dollar vertical.
About the Role:
As our team’s dedicated product lead, you’ll play a critical role in defining, communicating, and executing Jurisage’s product vision and strategy. You’ll work directly with our leadership, engineering, design, sales, and support teams — as well as with current users — to define, implement, and improve our products in ways that support our company’s strategy and goals.
To succeed in this role, you should be empathic, a great communicator, and have great initiative. If you’ve got strong user-centered sensibilities and proven experience getting cross-functional alignment and driving teams to deliver compelling products that address significant customer needs, on time and with great quality, we want to hear from you.

Key Activities:

  • Understand the context and problems our customers contend with. The legal industry is complex and high-stakes. It’s important to us to really understand and empathize with our users so that we can focus on the most important problems.
  • Hypothesize, validate, and find a solution to these problems. We have been working towards a hypothesis-driven approach. We want you to drive product discovery and help us come up with the right (viable, valuable, usable, feasible, ethical!) solutions.
  • Plan and prioritize. There will always be more work than there is capacity to do it. We need your help to focus on what to do and when so we can be our most effective.
  • Get it done. Work with our product owner, your design counterpart, and the engineering team to get our solution into the hands of our users.
  • Observe, learn, iterate. Keep sight of our goals, and see if our product offering is reaching them. If not, help us figure out what to do next.
  • Trust and be trusted. We are a small team, and everyone’s work is connected. We also work in an industry where trust matters.

What sets you apart from other candidates:

  • Ability to quickly acquire industry expertise. ​We serve the legal industry. You don’t need to be a legal professional (though that is a bonus!), but you have a proven track record of quickly ramping up your knowledge to understand an industry’s unique challenges, opportunities, and preferred methods of work.
  • Careful, strategic thinking. ​You excel at taking complex inputs, breaking them down, and synthesizing them to create/refine your product vision and strategies.
  • Personal credibility, leadership, and confidence. You are a natural leader who will distill the best ideas available into a plan that you can stand by.
  • High accountability.​ You love having clear goals and KPIs to measure the success of your strategies, because that’s how you’ll iterate & improve.

What you'll need to have:

  • 5+ years of solid Product Management experience bringing an enterprise-grade software product to market and seeing it through many iterations, with sensitivity to customers’ journeys.
