Frogtek is a for-profit social venture that provides technology for small shopkeepers in development markets (abarroteros or tenderos). Our goal is to help tendero families to manage better their business and earn a higher income. We develop our own mobile applications for small shops, designed specifically for customers at the base-of-the-pyramid. We also maintain a platform on the cloud with services for partners like market researches, consumer packaged goods companies and payment providers


If you were to join Frogtek, here are the kinds of things you would do over the course of a typical month:

  • Figure out what technologies shopkeepers in development markets will use to manage better their business. By technologies we mean: hardware, android apps and peripherals
  • Identify shopkeepers needs through a combination of field research, collecting feedback from our field trainers, diving into data, and competitive analysis
  • Translate needs into product prototypes that are easy-to-use and intuitive. Consider that our customer is not technology-savvy
  • Define product vision and strategy, and inspire people with it across the company
  • Build products with our technology department
  • Prioritize product evolution. Manage the backlog of features
  • Ship releases quickly, measure impact through data (mixpanel and research) and iterate again
  • Define metrics for success and failure. Analyze and create dashboards for key metrics.


Here are the eight critical things that we consider critical to being the Frogtek Product Manager:

  • Experience: Have led android product initiatives, preferably for base of the pyramid customers
  • Field-orientation: Love to be on the ground, listen to non-technology savvy customers and convert needs into super easy-to-use products
  • Cross-functional: Capable of working with a diverse team of field trainers, psychologists and engineers, you bring all ideas together, build consensus and prioritize
  • Technical: Prototyping tools (e.g. Marvel, A/B testing); Analytics (funnels, retention charts, segmentation charts, etc); UX design for Android; Notions of SQL
  • Data-fanatic: You are used to measure product releases with data and take decisions based on it
  • Self-motivated: Team player who is able to work in a small and fast-paced environment without much oversight
  • Seamless executor: You plan what you and the team will do, and you are held accountable for it. You hold the team to this standard
  • Education: Academic Background in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, or other technical or analytical fields
