The junglescout.com website not only markets our core software applications, it serves as the de facto educational destination for aspiring entrepreneurs seeking to launch and grow their Amazon business. It’s been key to our success — and the success of thousands of Amazon sellers!
Now who’s going to take it to the next level? Maybe you!
As Product Manager, Website you’ll assume a critical new role at Jungle Scout, charged with overseeing and managing the design, development, and testing of this pretty-darn-big asset. Your work will impact more than one million sessions per month, and serve as the primary channel for our company’s revenue.
You will report to the VP of Marketing, with whom you will set the website direction, prioritize features and development, and lead execution with a team of designers, developers, and conversion-rate specialists.
What you’ll do:
- Prioritize requirements. There’s so much we can do. It could be overwhelming, but not to you. You’ll work your way across the organization, and our audience, gathering ideas and requirements. Armed with juicy data, you’ll prioritize what’s next like a boss, ‘cause you are one.
- Execute production. You’ll lead a disciplined, agile process for rolling out new and improved pages at high velocity, with rapid iteration and testing. You’ll get it done from wireframe to development to launch.
- Lead and manage. You’ll lead a small team that includes a full-time UX designer, full-stack developer and dedicated CRO expert. You’ll provide clarity on priorities, remove barriers and ensure strong execution. But your sleeves will be so rolled up you’re basically wearing a tank top.
- Assure quality. You wanted responsibility, and now you got it. The bug-buck stops with you. You’ll work with your team to test in staging, and test again when live. Nothing will slip by you and your team, so our users are never left hanging. 404, no more.
- Communicate. Let’s get real: When it comes to the website, everyone’s got a vested interest. You’ll liaise across marketing, engineering, client success, support, design, and product teams. You’ll communicate, real good.
Who you are:
- Done this before. Experience is best measured in results and intensity (not years), but you need to have been in this product management game a while. You also need to have meaningful experience leading a similar-size team. We’re thinking five years.
- Project management. Project management experience, preferably working with software developers in an agile, sprint structure, is critical in this role. Central to this are best-in-class written, verbal and diagrammatic communication skills extending across the organization, not just down to your team.
- Master classer. It’s tough to manage sophisticated roles like design and development if you haven’t done them yourself. We’re not expecting Zuck, but you’ll need a solid technical background and some experience in Web development. ⌥⌘U is a reflex.
- Marketing chops. While the core competency here is product management, experience in digital marketing, SEO and/or conversion-focused testing will make a big difference in your success. Product management is your function; web marketing is your domain.
- Efficient executer. Simply put, you get s#*t done, and done well. You’re organized, prioritized and agile, and you can teach your team how to do the same for themselves. You have a track record of success that demonstrates this.
