VTS is the fastest-growing Proptech company in the history of commercial real estate (CRE). We have transformed a $15 trillion dollar industry with our award-winning platform which is used to manage over 60% of all office buildings. We’re continuing to expand our product offerings and are building the industry’s first and only online marketing software and end-to-end leasing marketplace, VTS Market. VTS Market will enable landlords to market their available spaces more effectively, and help tenant rep brokers and their tenants easily find and lease space online – a process that has traditionally been offline and difficult.
It’s an exciting time to join the VTS team – we recently reached unicorn status after raising $90 million in series D funding led by our clients (believed to be the largest venture financing in the history of commercial real estate software), we recently made the Forbes Cloud 100 list of the hottest private cloud companies, and were named one of Crain's best places to work!
Our headquarters are in NYC, but we have hubs in other major US cities, Toronto, CA, and London, UK.

How does this Position help VTS Succeed?
Interested in being at the forefront of a commercial real estate software revolution? Are you crazy-passionate about data and creating high-performing outcomes? Are you a natural-born leader and storyteller?
VTS is looking for a highly motivated, experienced, and dynamic Lead Product Manager to guide the development of tools that will transform the way commercial real estate (CRE) operates. This individual will be responsible for discovering new, creative ways to help brokers, landlords, and tenants communicate optimally and fostering critical relationships. As a Lead Product Manager, you’ll oversee a team of Product Managers and work directly with a lean, highly-effective Agile development team. You’ll also work cross-functionally with every aspect of the business to build — and ship — the most innovative solutions the CRE space has ever seen. Bring your thinking cap, your analytical skills, and whatever inspires your creativity; we have a very aggressive plan in mind to revolutionize this space.

What Makes This Job Awesome?

  • Evaluate trade-off decisions across the customer experience, development, and operational support in partnership with teams
  • Guide and participate in user experience design planning and delivery with the assistance of the development team
  • Be the customer advocate for solution designs; know the customer better than they know themselves
  • Work closely with the development team to ensure releases meet -- and exceed -- customer expectations
  • Work across departments to understand challenges/requirements for innovative solutions -- and get them to market
  • Continuously monitor, measure, and report on key user, product, and business metrics
  • Be the most knowledgeable person in the company on assigned product(s)
  • Be an internal (and external) evangelist for the product
  • Visit customers and attend industry events (once we can do such things again safely!)

What Makes You a Great Fit?

  • BA/BS with at least 5 years experience delivering cloud-based software in a Product Management role, preferably with at least some time at an early to mid-stage startup
  • Significant experience with Agile development methodologies, specifically Scrum
  • Experience managing and coaching more junior Product Managers

  • Strong consensus- and relationship-building skills, with experience marshaling resources across an organization 
  • Confidence to dive in and learn new solutions and processes without a lot of assistance
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, changing environment

An Insider's view of VTS

What are some social events your company does?

I spend a large part of my week at work, so being around great people is very important. The vibe at VTS is very friendly, and there are plenty of opportunities to share knowledge and to socialize, including brown bags, catered lunches, happy hours, team outings, and other events.


Staff Software Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I collaborate with other teams on the company when there’s a piece of code that I’m working on that relates to another topic or domain expertise, I’ll ask for help. Everyone’s really into the idea of collaborating because we know that it’ll create a better product!


Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

A creative environment is critical for great marketing! The main way I try to do this is encourage everyone's ideas - and recognize that while I may have more experience, this is the first time for all of us at this company, so my job is to guide the team towards great ideas, not be the source of all of them.


Chief Marketing Officer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

This year we completely redesigned our product strategy process. Several cross-functional forums provide an avenue where anyone in the company can suggest projects and influence prioritization. Feedback on the new process has been incredibly positive. It’s helping to keep the whole company aligned on our most promising and impactful initiatives.
