One of the most recognized names in media is on the hunt for digital talent – specifically, someone to manage the creation and rollout of internally-facing products (dashboards, intranet, and so on), bringing to bear all the latest tech and all the latest thinking in order to make these products as high-quality and user-friendly as possible. If you’re a builder of digital things with a handle on what’s latest-and-greatest, and with exemplary project-management skills, this is a chance to find a seat at one of the true legends in publishing.
Stated most simply, you’ll be the leader-owner of these projects, for every phase of the product life cycle. As their owner, and with minimal supervision, you’ll see to it that they’re delivered on time, and you’ll assure the highest quality. You’ll be working on more than one project at a time, across different channels and resources, which will call on your exceptional organizational skills. You’ll roadmap each product’s requirement set, and you’ll see to the execution of scrupulous QA testing (across browsers and across devices).
But this job is not just about keeping the trains running on time. There’s an expectation that you will call on your technical skills and talents to make improvements to user interfaces and to the design and functionality of these products.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
Let’s talk about the technical stuff first. You’re well familiar with content management systems, project management tools, and file-sharing and bug-sharing software: we’re talking JIRA, FogBugz, Redmine, Basecamp, Dropbox, Google Drive, and all that sort of thing. Your heart – and, we hope, the lion’s share of your experience – lies in UX; you think of yourself as a product person, someone proactive who looks for problems to solve and features to add or improve that will make the lives of users less painful. No one needs to tell you about digital best practices or UX considerations. You can’t help knowing about the latest digital trends and products, because that’s the stuff you breathe. Finally, you ask good questions, listen to the answers, and make your own communications impossible to misunderstand.
Be sure to highlight any work you’ve done for media companies, and don’t shy away from your agency experience.
This is a great chance to strut your stuff at a respected, stable and growing media company.
