Textio helps companies hire and retain diverse teams by eliminating bias in the most critical moments across the talent lifecycle. Textio gives you the tools to build high-performing teams by attracting diverse talent and supporting their career growth.

Textio's impact is driven by our writing experience. Textio identifies the biases and other problematic content that seeps into critical documents like job posts and performance reviews. We present this information, and the opportunities to fix them in an easy-to-use and fun experience so writers will take our guidance and write more inclusively and equitably, whether or not they care a lot about DEIB.

We are looking for a Senior Product Manager to lead the writing experience team.

Creating Textio's next generation writing experiences: The release of ChatGPT changed the nature of writing. Despite organization bans, writers are flocking to generative writing because it is making them more efficient. You, with your team, will figure out how to help our customers get to inclusive, equitable writing even when large language models might write the first draft.

Feature prioritization and definition: You will use your deep knowledge of DEIB practices, regular customer communication, and our business needs and strategy to create a roadmap. You will prioritize and define clear and crucial problems to solve so our designers and engineers can solve them. You will find the smallest scope that meets the need, so we can get feedback quickly and iterate.

The impact of your work: At Textio, one of our core principles is to Listen to the Loop. You will watch analytics and regularly talk to customers to understand how well the features you've built are working. Did your hypotheses prove true in the real world? Are your features helping our customers build and retain a diverse team? You'll take those insights and find ways to iterate, to create more impact over time.
