South Africa Remote
March 11, 2022
Aha! is a very different high-growth SaaS company. We are the world's #1 product development software and help product development teams build what customers love. More than 5,000 enterprises use our suite of products which includes Aha! Create, Aha! Ideas, Aha! Roadmaps , and Aha! Develop. And they rely on our training programs at Aha! Academy to become product development experts. We are self-funded, highly profitable, always distributed, and have no sales team. Being an always-remote company means we can hire intrinsically motivated people who love to learn, support their teammates, and want to work from where they are happiest.
Our Product Success team is an all-remote group spread across multiple time zones so we can work closely with customers when they need us.
We are experts: We do not hire sales or support people at Aha! — our Product Success team is only comprised of former product, IT, project, and marketing managers.
We act with urgency: We respond to customers' requests as quickly as we can. Because when we do, we have the best chance of creating the most value for customers and ourselves.
We serve:We work with the world's most innovative and well-known companies and they trust us to guide them to build products that their customers love.
We collaborate: We have no tolerance for drama. We celebrate clear communication, effort, and teamwork. We use Slack for internal team communication and Zoom for team and customer video calls. (Email? Rarely.)
We guide product: We bring our customer's requirements to our product team and define our own efficient processes and systems.
We enjoy: We like what we do and we want you to love your job too. Learn more about The Responsive Method , our company values , and the generous benefits we offer.
We serve the world's most innovative companies. They are building revolutionary new experiences for their customers and move fast. They expect us to do the same and to help them develop best practices for product development. Our software is methodology agnostic, which means we need to be experts in the agile, scrum, kanban, SAFe®, and hybrid approaches that our customers depend on.
Our collective experience gives us the skills to meet customers where they are, internalize how they work (because we've been there, done that), and confidently guide them to achieve their best. And because we are always curious, we love learning from our customers along our journey together.
You are involved in defining and delivering product functionality at a growing technology company. You help capture and define product requirements and participate in product launches. You thrive in a fast-paced environment where launches happen often — not once or twice a year.
Your favorite part of working on new products is delivering real value to customers. You enjoy interacting with your team and customers in a consultative way. Showcasing advanced technology to sophisticated customers energizes you. Applying deep curiosity to new challenges comes naturally, and you persist until you can clearly see the most efficient path to full resolution. You are happiest when you are continually learning and working with a team of high achievers like yourself. And you write exceptionally well.
