Description

Vox Media is a technology-driven media company. We're solving the problem of developing high-value digital journalism, storytelling, and brand advertising at scale—and empowering the most talented web voices and their audiences with Chorus, our modern media platform.

We got our start innovating in sports media with SB Nation, the largest and fastest-growing network of fan-centric online sports communities. We now have eight brands including Polygon, The Verge, Vox.com, Curbed, Racked, Eater, and Recode.

We're seeking a creative, experienced, consumer- and platform-focused product manager. Ideal candidates will be folks who enjoy getting their hands dirty to work on every phase of product development.

Big responsibilities:

  • Own specific products and platforms and maintain and execute roadmaps
  • Shepherd improvements through the product lifecycle, from concept to release to measurement and revision
  • Collect and integrate usability studies, research, and user feedback
  • Utilize analytics to continuously improve products
  • Document requirements clearly and thoughtfully
  • Keep stakeholders involved by gathering input and communicating progress
  • Coordinate and communicate rollout of new features internally and externally
  • Help set goals with metrics and be responsible for finding the best ways to achieve them
  • Maintain a productive and fun team environment

Mad skills:

  • You have exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • You understand how to facilitate rapid iteration of products
  • You can balance multiple priorities while staying calm and cool
  • You can communicate goals and build consensus
  • You can be decisive when a project calls for it
  • You have a deep understanding of usability and lots of experience building websites for broad audiences
  • You have a strong analytical background and can translate metrics into product decisions

Bonus points for:

  • Prior experience on a remote team
  • Being a member of an online community, especially one from Vox Media
  • Being an active blogger
