Our client, a media and technology company that literally changed the way Wall Street works, seeks a Product Manager, Community and Social Networking who can help build best-in-class tools for sharing and collaboration.
This joint is justly proud of its innovative streak — its iconoclastic founder wouldn’t have it any other way. They like people with ideas and an intuitive feel for new technology — particularly those who can bring their ideas forward persuasively and who are ready to defend them. It’s all about iterating products in the marketplace here (Ready! Fire! Aim!), so please dial up any experience you may have with Agile and related methods for software development. And if you’ve dealt with ensuring regulatory compliance in projects, then so much the better.
You’re a seasoned product manager who has always played on the edge. You were first to digital, first to search, first to mobile and first to social. Being first and getting it right is integral to your DNA. And so is making digital products smarter and just plain better.
Don’t let the “Product Manager” title make you think that this role is junior in any way. You’ll be leading a global product across a tremendous user base of avid subscribers. The visibility of this role is huge, and there’s enormous potential for this to be a career-changing move. Quite simply, your role is to innovate and develop community and collaboration tools that will enhance the company’s platforms for financial news and data. And if you’re a gamification guru, you’ll fit in quite nicely.
This matrix organization is high on collaboration, which means you’ll be getting your hands dirty alongside many teams and stakeholders (Research and Development, Marketing, Sales, Data, other Product Managers) to make sure that proposed solutions all jibe with overall company goals and continue to meet the needs of a marketplace that’s changing at lightning speed.
Let’s just say that social is becoming more and more central to this company’s business. Come armed with ideas about how a social media toolbox can improve companies’ bottom lines, and don’t be timid about offering prescriptions for what they should do. Impress them with your confidence, ideas and sheer willpower, and you may just get to execute on your dream product roadmap.
For a smart Product Manager who loves collaborating with equally smart people and who’s itching to unleash the power of community and social media on “real” products at a “real” company, there’s a mountain to “Like” here.
