Build the future with our visionaries.

Head of Core Product



San Francisco, CA, USA · Remote

  • The fastest email experience in the world
  • Loved and adored: see what our customers say
  • Our customers get through their inbox twice as fast; many see inbox zero for the first time in years.

Come shape the future of email, communication, and productivity!


At Superhuman, we deeply understand how to build products that people love. We incorporate fun and play; we infuse magic and joy; we make experiences that amaze and delight.

It all starts with the right team — a team that deeply cares about values, customers, and each other.


We're not solving a small problem, and we're not addressing a small market. We're going after email; the one activity that consumes more of our work day than any other.

Our ambition doesn't stop there. Next: calendars, notes, contacts, tasks. We are building the productivity platform of the future.


We have created the frameworks for how to build product market fit and redefined the narrative of how to onboard customers successfully. We have shown the world it’s possible to build a premium productivity brand. Our investors include Andreessen Horowitz, First Round Capital, IVP, Tiger Global Management, Sam Altman, and the founders of Gmail, Dropbox, Reddit, Discord, Stripe, GitHub, AngelList, and Intercom.

Our latest financing was led by IVP, and we welcomed Ajay Vashee to our board. Our prior financing was led by Andreessen Horowitz, and we welcomed Marc Andreessen and David Ulevitch to our board.

This time, we’re swinging beyond the fences and fundamentally rethinking how individuals and teams should collaborate. We are building a household brand and a worldwide organization. We are here to do the best work of our lives, and we hope you are too.

ROLE 👩🏽‍💻👨‍💻


Build and lead Core and Teams Product to massively deliver customer value, through remarkable UX and AI for teams and individuals to accelerate the entire Superhuman mission.


Outcome #1: Rapidly and consistently deliver experiences to our teams and individual customers that help them be more productive

  • We are here to build the most delightful and remarkable experiences possible. An experience is delightful when it evokes pleasant surprise. An experience is remarkable when it is so impressive that it compels people to talk about it.
  • Simultaneously, we are on a journey to rapidly accelerate our growth trajectory. To achieve this outcome, the Head of Core Product will:
    • Build out the roadmap, vision, and strategy for Core Product.
    • Work cross-functionally with stakeholders such as Delight, Design, Customer Success, Customer Engagement, Core Product, Engineering, and Marketing, to delight our customers and achieve common goals.

Outcome #2: Drive cross-functional go-to-market plans to grow our business on new platforms and use cases

  • Drive Windows/Outlook and Android penetration
  • Drive Teams feature adoption

Outcome #3: Build and lead a high-performing cross-functional Core product organization.

  • Inspire our team of world-class product managers, designers, engineers, analysts, and marketers to do the best work of their careers.
  • Hire, coach, and retain a diverse, distributed, and talented team.
  • Lead the organization with coaching, prioritization, clear communication, and modeling Superhuman values.

Outcome #4: Define and execute our Core product & Teams strategy

  • Identify the 10x opportunities to help us maximize our impact on both our customer experience and our growth. The scope entails the Teams collaborative features, the role-specific services (i.e. Sales, HR), AI, mobile and desktop, email and calendaring, tech partnerships (i.e. SFDC, Hubspot), and developer platform. This is our biggest Product surface area.
  • Collaborate across our leadership team to define plans that reinforce our competitive advantage and overall strategy. In particular, this is a very deep partnership with our Customer function, which owns human-mediated experience touchpoints.
  • Define a clear and well-articulated Core product strategy that unlocks exponential growth.
  • Lead the execution of that strategy, anticipate roadblocks, and enable the team to succeed.

Outcome #5: Define and execute our Workflow Integrations Ecosystem strategy

  • Detail Oriented. They know the numbers and metrics of their business in great detail; they know the answers to questions about their business immediately; they rarely have to ask their team before getting back to you.
