Sr. Product Manager, Technical

Job ID: 2074458 | Woot.com LLC

DESCRIPTION

Job summary
Want to join an exciting start-up within Amazon featuring screaming monkeys and exciting shenanigans that create a unique deal buying experience for customers? Woot! is the original daily deals website and continues its longstanding tradition of having people who look at our work and say "hey that shouldn't work, what on earth are you doing?" If you're still reading, hopefully it is because you are as ridiculous as we are and want to help us find ways to entertain folks while also providing them new and fun ways of hunting for amazing deals on products at prices that perplex them in a positive way. We are looking for a creative, open-minded results-oriented product manager to help us deliver an incredible experience on mobile devices and on the desktop that is addictive, enjoyable, and occasionally productive by developing various shopping methods, shenanigans, and social interactions for customers to hang out with us every day.

If you're an experienced product manager bored of the norm who loves getting into the minds of unique customer segments, wants to own an entire experience across multiple properties (app, web, Alexa, carrier pigeon), and also likes to get deep into the data to find ways of reaching these audience that no one else has thought of yet, we'd love to chat with you. You'll be working with all manner of folks from developers, to designers, marketers, vendor managers, data scientists, and so on from within both Woot! and the greater Amazon business. It'll be fun, it'll be an adventure, it'll be a roller coaster ride; and you'll be able to get a lot of stuff done fairly fast. You should be great at writing and verbal communications, and not afraid to ask tough questions and challenge the status quo (the boogie rock band from the 60s and the existing state of affairs).

* THIS POSITION CAN BE LOCATED IN SEATTLE WA, DALLAS TX, ARLINGTON VA OR AUSTIN, TX

Key job responsibilities
What you'll do:
* Create creative, unconventional, and addictive experiences for both shopping and time-wasting in our app and on our site, and on Alexa. The carrier pigeon is already pretty wacky, though.
* Work with various folks internally to build, market, and manage the full product lifecycle of these experiences. Own and deliver end-to-end initiatives across multiple stakeholders.
* Seek out new opportunities and ways to grow Woot's business. Yeah, we gotta make a buck too. It's a thing.
* Identify and track metrics on how your initiatives are doing to various levels of Woot and Amazon leadership.
* Lead modernization efforts of various elements of our product stack to support future innovation and long-term growth
* Look at data both internally and externally to find awesome ways of selling stuff, entertaining customers, and getting them to visit every day.
