About You

This isn’t your first PM rodeo. You have 7+ years of product management experience. You have proven success at a large consumer internet company w/ 5M+ visitors a month, driven largely through SEO and paid strategies to accelerate traffic and user acquisition.

You’ve managed high-functioning product teams centered on growth initiatives. You’ve hired, developed, and directly managed five or more Product Managers at varying levels of experience. You’ve worked with product teams to define success metrics, build data-driven roadmaps and track progress towards solving customer problems.

You set the vision for your team and then make it happen. You can own a problem space and set an 18+ month roadmap for how you’ll solve those problems. You know how to turn vision into goals, goals into a roadmap, and a roadmap into daily and weekly tasks for your team. You’re an evangelist for data-driven decision making. You have designed, implemented and executed on scalable processes that enable your teams to ship high-quality products quickly and efficiently.

You are efficient. You’re comfortable working at speed. You know how and when to make tradeoffs in features, speed, and staffing, and you have a good balance of the three, rather than always choosing one of these three things.

You know how to get results. Through collaboration with leaders in Marketing, Engineering, Design, and Support, you routinely deliver meaningful results for the business. You share and celebrate and build momentum around positive results. You learn and course correct when you don’t get the results you want.

You are data driven. You use data to uncover opportunities and understand what levers to pull to drive business results. You know how to measure the results of your work, test it with real users, and understand its downstream effects. You consider the long-term impacts of experiments and look for more than just short-term boost to metrics.

You have ample technical, design, and analytics skills. While you may or may not know how to code, you have technical skills to support yourself and your team. You use your technical context to make better, faster decisions and to minimize technical debt. You understand design patterns and can create functional specs and wireframes. You can write some SQL and use self-serve data exploration tools to support your own decision making. While you’ll have resources on your team that are experts in these areas, you can fill in the gaps whenever needed.

Things You Might Do

Establish a shared vision and strategy for Growth across the company by building consensus on priorities leading to product execution
Develop, communicate and execute the vision, strategy, and roadmap for the 5+ product development teams in our Growth/User Acquisition product pillar
Engage extensively with customers, internal teams and external partners in order to gain first-hand insight on the business needs & opportunities
Drive and enable your team to implement operational frameworks for best practices in SEO governance that can be applied across the company
Regularly review metrics and proactively seek out new and improved data/mechanisms for visibility, ensuring our growth strategy continues to be aligned with company objectives
Keep one eye on our fast moving market to ensure we remain well positioned.
Drive alignment and buy-in at all levels of the company to rally everyone around your vision.
Manage and grow a team of product managers while providing development, mentorship, and excitement to exceed team and company goals.
As part of our All Hands Support initiative, help customers have the best experience with Zapier as possible.
