A global giant in the news and information business is seeking a highly accomplished Video Product Manager with several years of cross-platform experience, and they’ve come to The Hired Guns to find them a star. This company is known for its fast, actionable information, and they’re making a major investment in packaging that info into bite-sized pieces of multi-platform video content. Your mission? Build a category-killing, forward-thinking, engagement-driving video player.
This won’t be your first time around the track. You have a few years of real video-focused product management under your belt … that means building and launching impactful and broadly-used products/players for well-established, innovative companies. Ideally, you’ve handled both new product rollouts and major migrations and have a systematic approach to product management, a tangible road-map which you follow from strategy to concept to research to requirements to more research. You have a technology background, you understand software development (especially when it comes to video integration on multiple platforms), and you are knowledgeable about platforms, networks, and development environments. You are an excellent communicator who works confidently with many different stakeholders and operates well with both internal development teams and outside vendors. (Undergraduate degree required, MBA a plus.)
You’ll be the key decision-maker for product rollouts and migrations impacting tens of thousands of web and mobile users. As the owner of new product vision, strategy, and execution, you’ve got a lot on your plate: mapping out long-term product strategy and timelines, conducting strategic and tactical user research, formulating requirements and use cases, matrix-managing across the development, project management, and support teams, and planning and leading releases and migrations. This is a high-stakes opportunity: you’ll be expected to meet timeline and budget constraints and will be measured on growth in both revenue and customer base as well as on ongoing improvement in customer satisfaction.
This client is looking for the real deal … a rare combination of creative innovator and highly disciplined implementer. Show us the serious stuff you’ve accomplished in the video space — and we mean serious — and you’ll get on the inside track.
Major content provider … entrepreneurial team … leading-edge products … the video space.
