Contact NameSteve Silvi
DescriptionAs a product owner at our Client, you are in a strategic and business-oriented role, focused on delivering amazing customer experiences. We manage millions of subscriptions across many different product categories from magazines to digital products. On a daily basis, your focus will be to define and push the product vision forward while considering the needs of all customers and stakeholders.

You’re the heart, mind, and voice of our customers, and can lead people along a product journey by being positive and practical. It’s a sweet job facilitating cross-functional teamwork, but all this glory does come with some dirty work, like making tough calls with little information, deciding on product trade-offs, resolving conflicts so the development team works toward a consistent goal, and jumping in to wear another hat if necessary. In the end, the product team is responsible for the results.

As our Product Manager, a typical day might include the following:

• Identifying, defining, and managing the product roadmap and backlog while prioritizing work products using data to drive decisions.

• Working with business and fellow product owners to elaborate features for prioritized initiatives.

• Reviewing elaborated features with engineering and QA teams.

• Attending daily scrums to help answer questions and clear impediments.

• Facilitating kickoff meetings with the delivery team & answer specific questions about the acceptance criteria

. • Reviewing the QA team’s test cases, commenting on edge cases, and sometimes negotiating with the team.

• Jumping on a call with a partner or vendor to integrate with their services or help them integrate with ours.

• Collaborating with your fellow team members on a new product that’s missing in our market.

• Picking up a ping-pong paddle and battling it out with your teammates.

RequirementsYou may be what we’re looking for if you’re good at…

• 5+ years of relevant product, project & operations experience with a proven track record of working cross-functionally to define, drive and deliver software solutions.

• Strong collaboration and communication skills to effectively bridge between business and engineering groups.

• 3+ years working in an agile scrum environment. • Data-driven & results oriented decision maker who effectively & efficiently executes to deliver against our roadmap

• Attention to detail. Not only can you always spot Where’s Waldo, but you wrote the book when it comes to doing it right the first time.

• Ability to adapt to frequently changing priorities and tasks.

• Comfortable with databases and reporting tools. SQL skills a plus!
