Partnerships Product Manager at Brilliant
How often do you get the opportunity to work on a tangible, physical product that can change the daily lives of every American household?
Think about our cars today. They have dozens of computers within them. Do we call them “smart cars”? What we call “smart homes” today will just be known as homes in the near future. Brilliant hopes to democratize the smart home itself. We build products that naturally blend within the aesthetic of your home, and allow your home to still feel like a home - not a jumble of electronics.
We also happen to be in an era where the type of experiences that have traditionally been accessible to the top 1% of households can be available for all households. Now. That’s in the matter of hundreds of dollars instead of tens of thousands.
We are looking for a Partnerships Product Manager to join the Brilliant Product team and help bring that vision alive - and it’s going to be an exciting journey!
Brilliant creates technology that makes it fun and easy to interact directly with your home.
Our first product, the Brilliant Control, replaces an existing light switch to give you touch and voice access to lighting, music, climate, and other smart home products. Our newest products include a Smart Home Switch and Smart Plug that showcase our ability to complete smart home lighting as well as being the center of the smart home. We also have an all-in-one mobile app for use when remote, available across iOS and Android.
For enterprise customers, we recently launched the Brilliant Command Center, which helps property managers become more efficient, save time/money, detect issues, and increase resident satisfaction.

Brilliant is built on integrations and partnerships. In addition to building new integration experiences and improving existing ones, this role will involve a large BD component where you will interface with partners to drive value from integrations and GTM opportunities.
As we are an early-stage company, successful candidates will demonstrate the ability to work quickly and collaboratively, infusing their work with creativity and compassion for our customers. Being able to test, adjust, and launch in a high-growth environment will be a critical skill. Experience at a startup is a plus.
