ABOUT THE ROLE:

You bring together the voice of our customer with that of our business and market to create compelling products that solve real problems for our customers -- from planning all the way through to execution.

You deliver world class products and business results through influence and delegation -- you know intimately why a new feature or improvement is important to our business and customers, set a compelling vision for that product, own the KPIs that measure its success, and do everything in your power to deliver on those measures.

THE OPPORTUNITY:

Work with business leaders and marketing/sales experts to understand the key drivers of our business, so we can focus our efforts on what really matters

Work hand in hand with designers to conduct generative research -- from surveys, to customer interviews, to observation -- to develop an intimate understanding of our customers’ problems and needs that we can solve with product

Work with Product Data Analysts to develop a plan that outlines what success looks like, and how you’re going to measure against that -- you’re accountable for the results

Actively seek feedback and critique from your peers and manager -- this is a team, not a solo effort

Take the time to clearly document your work and proactively share this with your stakeholders for critique -- our work isn’t precious and it should be easy to understand our rationale

Develop strong relationships with counterparts in marketing, sales/CS and finance that leverage their insights to develop a complete customer experience and align priorities -- we aren’t “build it and they will come” PMs

REQUIREMENTS:

Run design sprints with your designer that clearly articulate the customer problem you’re attempting to solve, ideate on potential solutions, and gets a focused solution in front of users to test your assumptions

Strong written and verbal communication skills.

Able to communicate product goals and meet deadlines.

2+ years as a Product Manager at a software company
