What is Morty

Morty is building Strava for nerd culture, starting with the escape room community.

We are a founders-led, privately held company funded by General Catalyst, ANIMO Ventures, and other world-class investors ($1.1M pre-seed Q3 2020).

Our gamified online network lets enthusiasts of nerd culture experiences connect, plan, and track adventures to the weirdest and coolest nerd culture experiences across the real world and metaverse.


The product

Our vision is to become the de facto app to discover and experience the coolest things to do in the real world and metaverse with friends, family, and other great folks, and to become a scavenger hunt that wraps around your life.

As the world becomes a more isolated place, Morty will reduce collective loneliness, ride the explosive growth of new formats of leisure activities, and reinvent the protocol of social outings.

New technologies have allowed creatives to build Imagineering-caliber attractions. As a result the theme park is being "unbundled" by independent businesses all over the world.

Yet these distributed experiences are still hard to find and to understand, and booking them is not always ideal.

The world will be a smarter and more cooperative place when these new, immersive formats of entertainment are more accessible.


We believe in customer obsession, hard work, attention to detail, moving fast, humility, and embracing a little weirdness.


The Role

Morty is looking for its first PM.

You'll help us create the most engaging and fun experience possible for geeks to discover, plan, track, and book social outings to the weirdest and coolest nerd culture experiences across the real world and metaverse.

The ideal candidate will have a strong product background and analytical mindset — and may have worked previously on consumer products as a PM, growth PM, or data analyst.

We are open to candidates of varying seniority. Most important is a hunger for making products people want, deep thinking and experience around consumer products, and a data rich approach to finding engagement.

Our product has a small cohort of uber passionate users ✨ and we are tuning it to find PMF.

You'll work with our team of startup veterans, spending the most time with our product designer, co-founders (product owner + product architect), and engineering team.

Also, you won't have to use Jira! 🎉


What you'll work on

  • Identify the most important features to increase product engagement and retention, and remove friction.

  • Understand ecosystems, user behaviors, and the long-term trends in our space to identity opportunities for engagement and growth.

  • Find creative ways to make everything a game.

  • Optimize user flows to reduce friction and drive the best possible experience for users to become long term fans.

  • Bring a deep understanding of growth & optimization best practices and drive a ruthless focus on the most impactful ideas.

  • Analyze the results of experiments and user interviews to determine what we should/shouldn't launch.

  • Apply your expertise in data analysis and presentation to understand how our users interact with our product.



  • 3+ years experience with product management of an engaging digital product in the consumer space.

  • Comfort working with a small team, wearing many hats, and enjoying the uncertainty and pace of a pre-product market fit, 0-to-1 stage startup.


Nice to haves

  • Enthusiast of escape games, haunted attractions, immersive theater, immersive art, or another innovative format of group leisure activity? 🚪🎨 🎭 ⚡

  • Familiarity with game dynamics and/or experience in the gaming industry.

  • Internet marketing experience.

  • BA/BS in Engineering, Computer Science, Math, Physics, Statistics or other technical/quantitative field or 2+ years equivalent technical work experience.



Los Angeles == strong preference, but open to hiring a great remote candidate.
