Product Lead (w/m/d)

Product / Design

We are kooky, an innovative startup that is fighting the battle against disposable packaging. Together with you, we want to revolutionize the takeaway industry with a simple, sustainable solution - the reusable-kooky-cup along with the magical kooky-return-box.

Our reusable system including our own return infrastructure can already be found in Zurich, Basel, St Gallen, Bern and Munich.

The kooky system is simple outside, but complex on the inside, and to handle all of it, we're on the lookout for a Product Lead, that would take care of the consumer, operations and hardware tech-teams respectively; keeping them aligned, and focused on providing our users the best experience possible.


  • Deliver customer value - Evolve kooky’s core platform experience to the next level. You will ship features to customers, get customer feedback, and iterate on your products to drive as much customer value as possible.
  • Capture the voice of the customer - Stay close to our customers across the customer lifecycle. You will own converting customer insights into a product backlog that sets an ambitious and compelling product narrative for our customers.
  • Embody the “we, not me” mindset - Work with counterparts to deliver strategic features that generate customer excitement and engagement. This will include working with internal and external CISOs, designers, marketers, engineers, and sales teams.
  • Champion the vision - Lead kooky's core product and user experience. This will mean experimenting constantly to identify the strategy and roadmap that will allow our consumers to be excited, our partners to be trustful and our internal teams to be efficient.


  • First of all, you should be passionate about our aims - Environmental Impact, work smart not hard, autonomous, fast space and fast-growing, customer-first - and our vision to create the best circular economy infrastructure in the world, making the future of the world waste-free.
  • We’d really like if you bring us the following:

  • A relevant degree - could be computer science, design, business. Your degree doesn't matter too much, we’re more interested in your methodological thinking

  • You have 5-7 years of proven relevant experience in online product management, either web or mobile apps; having worked with IoT or high scale products is a big plus. Show us what you have created!
  • You are fluent in current software product management - agile methods, user testing, user experience, UX, MVP, analytics, cross-functional teams, among others
  • You are a fast thinker. You can iterate quickly and can make ideas reality in record times
  • You are great at transforming customer needs into business opportunities/ stories and vice versa. You’re not just building features because you like them, but because you know they will make an impact
  • You know the basics of web app platforms, frameworks, mobile apps, web services, databases, IoT
  • Prioritization is one of your best skills. You know how to make sense of the continuous flow of ideas and requests for product changes
  • Experience and a success story in behavioral economics are another pluso validate your decisions and critically look at your past choices
  • You can effectively communicate with a Development Team of engineers and convince the Management Team of your ideas as well
  • You are fluent in English (German not required)


  • Remote Setup (available workspaces in Berlin, Munich and Zürich)
  • Frequent get2togethers in the Swiss HQ in Zurich
