  • Develop and execute a go-to-market strategy & plan in collaboration with marketing, sales, sales enablement, support and customer success
  • Collaborate with UX Design and Engineering teams to deliver high-impact and high-quality product releases on time
  • Partner with Account Managers who have deep knowledge of the specific needs of our clients, and problems we’re trying to solve
  • Use data and good judgment to quickly make tradeoffs decisions on prioritization. 
  • Meet regularly with existing customers and prospects to develop a deep sensitivity to customer pain points and problems and solicit feedback on potential solutions
  • Analyze and develop solutions for business problems at their root, stepping back to understand the broader context
  • Constantly measure effectiveness & usability of features and evaluate the success of the product

 

What you need to bring:

We're looking for a Director/Senior Director level candidate who has experience with the following:

  • 10+ years experience in product management.

  • E-commerce and/or B2B SaaS platforms experience
  • Ability to drive initiatives and sprint planning in a fast paced environment
  • Strong organizational sense, process driven mentality
  • Appreciation of UX and Front-End best practices
  • You’re empathetic, a people’s person, and are easy to talk to
  • Care passionately about customer satisfaction with attention to detail
