Resolve was ready to grow their product team and hire an additional Senior Product Manager to focus on leveraging core product capabilities to develop new lines of business driven by APIs and integrations.
Resolve helps B2B merchants and marketplaces manage net terms for their customers by eliminating the headaches and risks of manual credit checking, payment collection, and payment reconciliation. This means their customers can get paid faster, improve their cash flow, and grow their sales.
Their mission is to build the future of B2B payments by making net terms simple and easily embeddable.
Our client identified the main requirement as someone who had experience taking a product or business “from zero to one” as this individual would embody skills across strategy, research, and hands-on product management work.
Other important criteria included those with B2B SaaS, lending, fintech, and/or eCommerce experience. API experience was considered an asset. The ideal hire also needed the maturity to be able to self-direct efforts to achieve exceptional outcomes from a remote-first company model.
The chosen hire had 12 years of employment experience, 8 years of Product Management experience, and 3 years working for a FAANG company. A breadth of product experiences including B2B SaaS, payments/fintech, and eCommerce.
Earlier experience included strategic consulting services, working with large enterprise clients on business process improvements. As a Product Manager, they championed discovery of net-new product experiences to drive ROI to customers.
Since joining, this candidate has helped buildup the foundations for a fairly greenfield initiative - taking a very measured approach and applying their prior domain experience. They quickly created a compelling product vision and roadmap, and already started shipping solutions to solve customer problems.
When hiring our first CPO, we were looking to branch out beyond our network. The Martyn Bassett Associates team was able to source candidates that we were wanting, but unable to get on our own. We were presented with a wide range of fantastic candidates.
What I love about working with this team is they’re there to help. I have weird requests, they jump on the phone and we figure it out. I need someone in a hurry, they hustle. I maybe need someone ages from now, they keep an eye out. I have a question about a salary, or am unsure about how to approach something – they know. We’ve used them for a few years, and we’ve had nothing but great experience working together. Wish I had found them a few years sooner.
We were impressed with both the speed and the high-calibre of candidates we had to choose from. Martyn Bassett Associates really listen to what you’re looking for and the entire process is very smooth and stress-free.
The entire Martyn Bassett team was easy to work with and we were able to quickly develop an open and transparent partnership. Leveraging their strong expertise and extensive talent network, they helped us find the technology sales leaders and management services experts we needed.
A true value-adding partner in identifying talent. The team at Martyn Bassett Associates were quick to zero-in on our requirements and rigorous in pre-qualifying candidates for consideration. They are focused and fast! Their expertise and experience added value throughout the process and resulted in an outstanding final outcome for Roadpost. This is a team that will strive to exceed expectations.
