About the Role:
The Platform Product Management team is charted to manage the eCommerce Platform and Checkout of the Consumer Business Unit with over $2B in revenue per year. As a Product Manager, you will be a member of an agile team serving as the voice of the customer. You will work with the other product managers and stakeholders including Acquisition marketing, CRM marketing, Payments, and Licensing teams. You will be responsible to define and prioritize the teams future backlog so that the solutions effectively address customer needs. Besides representing the customer, you will work with internal development teams to define a backlog of features, upgrades and enhancements to our eCommerce technology stack ensuring delivery and sustainment of our platform. You will also be responsible for making sure that corporate and business unit priorities are adhered to. The scope of your work will be global in nature, with a mixture of frontend and backend projects.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in eCommerce, web services and application definition, and who is very comfortable with the technical details. The best ideas in the world are nothing if they are not executable, so our ideal candidate has a bias toward execution. You should be a doer, and you should have agile experience as a product manager under your belt.
With input from other product managers and stakeholders, the product manager builds, prunes, and maintains a backlog of epics consisting of end user flows, mockups, legal approvals and use cases. Epics are prioritized based on business value, time dependencies, risk reduction and effort. The product manager has the primary responsibility to keep the process of writing and prioritizing epics flowing and ready ahead of Scrum activities. The product manager also reviews and re-prioritizes the backlog as part of the preparatory work for longer term release planning, including coordination of any dependencies with other product owners and dependent teams. The Product Manager participates as a proactive member of the eCommerce Platform team. He/she will contribute continually to the product vision and participate in roadmap backlog refinement and planning preparation.
The Product Manager will work with a cross-functional team of UI developers, architects, designers and QA testers to develop and break down requirement/user stories into executable chunks. You will champion the user experience end-to-end by working closely with interaction and visual designers; ensure that the site is intuitive, mobile-first and designed with the future in mind.
