Senior Product Manager

at Jana Mobile in Boston, MA   —   Apr 09, 2014   |  
About Us:

Jana, a Boston-based startup, connects global companies to emerging market consumers. Our products enable both market research and direct response marketing in countries as diverse as India, Brazil, Nigeria, and Egypt. Our global community members receive free talk time on their mobile phone in exchange for taking actions including trial (registration, app downloads), engagement (watching a video, uploading a photo), advocacy (referring a friend), and product purchase (airtime rebates). Every month, millions of emerging market consumers register with mCent, Jana’s consumer-facing, opt-in platform, to receive these offers.

While we are a rapidly-growing, early-stage start-up, we are also the world's largest rewards platform. With integrations into the billing systems of 237 mobile operators, we can instantly reward 3.48 billion emerging market consumers in 70 local currencies with prepaid airtime. We are earning revenue in over 50 countries from clients including: CNN, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, Nestlé, Unilever, P&G, Danone, Google, and General Mills. With $25MM in funding from Maurice Lévy (Publicis Groupe), Todd Dagres (Spark Capital), Rohini Chakravarty (NEA), Jon Miller (AOL / News Corp), Paul Sagan (Akamai) and Esther Dyson (WPP) - we are redirecting the $200B being spent on advertising in the developing world away from pockets of the people who own things like billboards - and directly into the pockets of the billions of consumers these global brands are trying to reach.
