Product Manager Hungarian Expansion


If you’re reading this and you’re based in Hungary, a thorough introduction is due: Shoptet is the biggest e-commerce platform in CEE. Yes, we do have the most customers – 34 000 in three countries. And yes, we’re the biggest even through the lens of GMV – 683 billion Ft spread amongst Czechia, Slovakia, and Hungary.

The Mission

Our company mission is to help people achieve their dream of starting an e-business and help them be successful. Your mission would be to find a product-market fit for the Hungarian market. This goal will lead you to many different paths - localization, interviews with customers, pricing strategy, copywriting fine tuning, competitor monitoring and analysis or collaboration with marketplace team to bring the right integrations to enable a smoother journey to our merchants . The playground is big. We're missing the sole owner of all of those activities.

Let's get real: You’d be upgrading things not from 0 to 1, but from 0,2 to 1 – we've already made some progress and we are so ready to take the next step forward! We are so excited to pick up speed, we can't wait for you to be our first-ever product hire in Hungary! This opportunity will give you a lot of space for growth and piloting new ideas that we haven’t tried before.

The Challenges

We're up against two competitors who have set the bar on the market and we love the idea of this challenge! We're armed with resources, will, and enthusiasm, but we know this won't happen without a fight. We need someone to join us with high energy to achieve our goals!

Your colleagues from the product team will be in a different country. We will welcome you with open arms - the team in Budapest will be your biggest supporter as all business functions await your arrival. We will also fly you frequently to Prague, where a big part of the onboarding will take place as well as the periodical planning and strategy sessions with the whole product organization and technology teams.

The People

You’ll be reporting directly to our CPO Tomáš, collaborating with the Hungarian Country Lead, and be backed by our already existing Product team while being the pioneer of the whole Product department in Hungary.

Meet some of our team members – Head of Marketplace Veronika Zapletalová (ex-Uber), Head of Design Petr Šolín (ex-Canva), or our Product Manager Marko Chytka (ex-MallGroup). Alongside many more, they'd be your support system to help you succeed.


We're looking for an independent thinker with great communication skills. Someone who is not afraid to be a sole owner of a very important strategic product part of our business. You should know how to clearly share your ideas with the world and specify the objectives. You should also speak native Hungarian (to communicate with local merchants) and have very good English as well (to communicate with the team in Prague).

We appreciate people who know their craft and we'll work well together if you love data, and enjoy looking at them and figuring out the next steps thanks to them.

👋 If you like what you just read, that can only mean one thing – you have what it takes and we’d love to hear from you.
