We rarely do this but we want you to work for us. We’re looking for an SF-based Product Manager to help lead the site into the 22nd century using best-of-breed tools, HTML codes, and the magic of programming. And we need that person right now.
Here’s what’s up: The product leader of TechCrunch.com should have considerable experience with the key product and technology aspects of a media website, including publishing systems (preferably WordPress but not a requirement), video, advertising systems, audience development (SEO, usability, recirculation), and page performance. Growth and analytics are the key focus for the role, and candidates should have strong knowledge and experience in tracking digital media analytics as well as devising, executing and tracking growth strategies across the full spectrum of growth-oriented efforts, from recirculation, to SEO, to product refinements and syndication.
In addition, the successful candidate should have the experience to define and lead, and in some cases juggle, small as well as major projects, ranging from wholesale redesigns to performance improvements and bug database management. Project management experience is a must. The management requirements of the role are complex, and include managing the dev team and outside contractors, while working with stakeholders at TechCrunch, notably the editorial, events and advertising groups.
Strong candidates will have experience balancing their own expertise and experience with the inputs from all these groups, always keeping the best user experience, traffic growth and advertising requirements in mind. Stellar communication skills and a cool head are critical.
