Over the next three years, we have a mission to make video creation faster, easier, and more fun, on any device, in ways that have never been done before.
 
This is a career-defining opportunity for a Product Manager who is passionate about helping small businesses succeed through video marketing, and consumers connect with one another. If you have strong PM practices, are a collaborative leader of multidisciplinary teams, and have experience managing a product that delivers a great UX across web and mobile devices – we’d love to discuss how you can help us.

  • Create strategy. You’ll help to shape our cross-platform strategy and ship product capabilities that achieve it
  • Own the roadmap for the web and mobile cross-platform experience. You’ll capture a wide range of inputs, understand and prioritize this work so that your team is always working on the most impactful projects in service of our company objectives
  • Work toward outcomes. You’ll constantly evaluate if your solutions have solved the problem through quantitative and qualitative analysis
  • Collaborate with your team. You’ll motivate a group of committed, smart people to do the best work of their careers. You’ll work with them to think big and envision a future state that address these opportunities
  • Take a Lean approach. You’ll work with your team to ship value to customers as early and often as you can by scoping solutions down to the smallest version that will help us learn
  • Communicate effectively. You’ll regularly present to the company and to stakeholders on the roadmap, progress, and learnings
  • Uphold the user experience. You’ll seek to improve the quality of the user experience in the areas of the product that your team owns
