Product Manager - Data

Product · Richmond, Victoria
Department Product
Employment Type Full Time
Minimum Experience Mid-level

We're looking for product folk to scale our product team and evolve our global design platform with customers front and centre. There’s an MVP approach and you’ll need empathy and the ability to define complex problem spaces and find creative solutions, no matter how “out there” they are. Approaching things differently, creatively, and in unpredictable ways are the norm here.

A little bit about 99designs

99designs is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Our mission is to champion creativity to create opportunities for people around the world. Founded in 2008, 99designs has grown from a small, online forum into a worldwide community of talented designers that is now the go-to solution for businesses, agencies, and individuals.

So what is the role about I hear you ask?
This is an exciting and newly created role that provides 99designs’ internal teams with the product, tools and capabilities to dramatically enhance end user experiences.  The fundamentals of Product Management are the same; leading cross-functional teams to deliver against their roadmap and using customer and creator data and insights to build out core platform products.  And achieving this in a collaborative fashion with Analysts, Engineers, Product Managers, and customers and creators alike.

As Product Manager a large aspect of your role will be to work across multiple teams with a focus on research, discovery and development of automation, machine learning and analytics products and features.  There’s a lot of variety to go at here - think recommendation engines, fraud detection, matching systems, NLP and sentiment analysis, as well as database migrations and enterprise wide analytics and reporting products.

You will contribute to the overarching data product strategy and own the product roadmap and play a big part in stakeholder engagement.  You will have a natural affinity and desire to solve business problems, have a commercial mindset, and can make decisions based on data, value, insights and prioritisation. And asking why? Or why not?  You’ll be responsible for taking the data and insights from their creators and customers, and build out aspects of their scalable, global platform.  And you will lead the data & analytics product team to deliver against their roadmap.

A little about you
You are an experienced Senior/Product Manager with excellent knowledge of agile development, with experience in data products and technologies.  You understand that everyone wants things done and can make trade-offs while staying on top of your backlog and key initiatives.  You’re great at letting people know what’s going on and have the ability to stay focused where the most value is to be gained.  You are the master of balancing competing needs, you can balance design, technology, and business while keeping in mind the often conflicting needs of the creator community and clients. 

Just a little bit curious? 
Apply, say hi!
