Company: escapex
Location: Taipei, Taiwan


As a Chief Product Officer (CPO) at escapex, you will be responsible for the “why” of the product — the strategic approach to what will be built. The CPO makes sure the product direction is serving the overall company vision and adjusts as necessary to changing conditions. Tactically, the product team owns building and sharing the roadmap. The product plan explains to the organization why they are building the product, what features and requirements are included, and when phases and tasks are due. You will work collaboratively with senior executives to develop overall product strategies, set goals and objectives for growth, and establish timelines for the regular release of new products and features. First and foremost, that requires you to be an expert on our users and what they want and what motivates them. We'll depend on you to innovate, invent, develop, execute and refine our product strategies based on deep understanding of and empathy for the needs of our users.

Great products come from great collaborations, and you'll need to partner with engineers, designers, and product managers from different function to create products that delight our users. Great products are also the result of the hard work with close attention to detail -- your colleagues at escapex will depend on you to write clear and complete specifications for our products and services that guide teams of designers and engineers. You'll also need to sweat the little things and constantly push your peers towards perfection. The best products shouldn't require much explanation, but you'll need to be comfortable talking about our products with peers at escapex and be able to articulate how our products work and explain why they matter.

About escapex:
In the ever-changing world of social media, the only constant are the people at the end of the channel. We are profoundly passionate about creators and putting them front and center has been our driving force from day one. So we’ve set out to build a different model: to reimagine social media where control is in the hands of creators, not platforms. Where those driving engagements are compensated, not the networks they use. Where communication is direct, no intermediaries. Where everyone can be seen. This is escapex, and it's just the beginning.
