Responsibilities

Summary

The Amify product function enables our client-facing teams by defining and delivering data insights and visualization products. Our mission is essentially to get good data and do something meaningful with it. Our team seeks to understand our client’s needs, thinks ahead of those needs, and strives to amplify the company’s service delivery through the use of data. As a Product Manager, you will seek out and predict needs, define product features, outcomes and roadmap. You write user stories and define product requirements that are digestible and actionable for the engineering team. You’ll have an integral role in defining and delivering future data-related product opportunities to Amify and its clients.

 

What you’ll be doing:

  • Build a deep understanding of Amify’s external customers and internal users-- their needs, the jobs-to-be-done, why they love Amify, and what they wish could be better
  • Reporting directly to the Chief Product Officer, you will work on a cross-functional team to define the product vision for Amify and turn that vision into an actionable roadmap
  • Defining a robust and detailed backlog for upcoming features and work. Use that backlog to define upcoming sprints for the product development team
  • Work with product, marketing and engineering leadership to define buyer and user personas that will help guide our development decisions and prioritization
  • Develop a deep understanding of the ecommerce product landscape - what tools are out there, who are our competitors, what tools would complement our product
  • Conduct lease versus build analysis to identify if there are products in the market that will fit our business needs and can fit into our product stack. You help us focus on developing truly differentiated functionality in house instead of reinventing the wheel
  • Working with the Engineering team to drive the evolution of product capabilities by delivering quality features and products within the expected timeline
  • Supporting product & design process with key stakeholders and cross-functional partners across the organization
  • Supporting ongoing monitoring of business performance and P&L line items against KPIs

 

What we’ll expect from you:

  • Hit the ground running - We’ll expect you to learn quickly, be solution-focused, and thrive amid change
  • Collaborate - In rare cases, you’ll need to be an expert team of one. But most of the time, you’ll need to be flexible - wearing and sharing many hats with a fast-moving team. Egos, turf-guarding, and keeping knowledge to yourself simply won’t work
  • Client Focus - We’ll expect you to treat our clients’ businesses as if they’re your own. Amify’s success depends on the success of our clients, and you’ll play an extremely important role in helping our clients succeed
  • Expertise - You should be able to teach us something new, and relentlessly learn new skills, channels, and tools
  • Mentorship - We’ll expect you to support other team members as they develop new skills by guiding the work, providing timely feedback, and proactively sharing knowledge
  • No one is above the work - We’re all expected to get our hands dirty and do great work regardless of title, team, or tenure
