You’ll fit this role if you have
What it takes to be a Maker and you can relate to the following principles:
A bias towards action - You believe that speed and quality aren’t mutually exclusive. You’ve shown good judgment about getting features to customers while still making sure that products are built in a sustainable, adaptive and responsible way. You welcome the opportunity to learn and improve, by embracing a growth mindset.
The grit to try and try again - You are willing to iteratively work at solving a problem, because you deeply care about customers, and you are open to a continuous feedback loop.
Love the journey - You will be dissatisfied with the end result at some point. It might be a week after you’ve launched a feature. Our work is never done and to thrive you have to learn to love the process of thinking, doing, learning, and improving.
Done is better than perfect - Nothing is ever perfect. All of our customers are different with unique needs. We ship. We learn. We improve. We change.
Respect the craft - To make anything is to try to add something meaningful to the world whether it is just for you or for many other people. Why do anything unless you will try to do it really well. We are the gatekeepers of quality.
2+ years of direct product management experience; product experience focusing on e-commerce a plus.
Excellent technical, analytical, and problem-solving abilities, along with an ability to collaborate cross-functionally.
First-class influencing skills, including experience working within a large matrix organization.
A drive to identify new opportunities, develop strategies to drive growth, and to push projects forward.
