The projects you’ll work on here will likely be multi-faceted (and, as a result, quite interesting): You’ll collaborate with lots of different team members, internal stakeholders, device partners, developers, project managers and QA testers in pursuit of delivering high-quality, timely products and features.

Ideal candidates for this role will have technical fluency, great people skills, and a ready sense of humor.

  • Gather requirements, write specs and user stories, create wireframes and workflows, and coordinate/communicate cross-functionally with teams from across the organization.
  • Be go-to resources for platforms under their management: Track upcoming features and OS releases, use internal and partner reporting tools to fully understand user behavior.
  • Evaluate market trends, conduct competitive analysis, and identify potential enhancements for our TVE and OTT services.
  • Understand Showtime’s traditional and direct-to-consumer businesses and be keenly interested in and informed about how product features affect key KPIs

You should also be prepared to:

  • Take a data-driven approach to product management and strive for measureable, constant improvement of our subscriber experience.
  • Partner with UX on devising better, simpler, smarter interactions. Whenever possible, bring a unique perspective to the Product and UX team that helps everyone to grow and improve.
  • Partner with engineering to most efficiently deliver the best-in-class product experiences you and your team will create.
  • Work closely with other members of Showtime’s Product Management team to execute cross-platform integration of all features and enhancements.

  • 2+ years of hands-on product management of iOS, Android or Roku apps
  • Demonstrated track record of managing product managers to successful product launches.
  • Strong critical thinking and communication skills, especially when articulating opinions or rationale.
  • Strong desire to make users happy: You have clear opinions about what makes a good customer experience.
  • You’re committed to making data-driven decisions and have experience using a variety of product-usage measurement tools.
  • You have a deep understanding of details, but with the ability to zoom out and see bigger picture.
  • You’re scrappy and ingenious; you’ve got no fear of getting your hands dirty, and you are often the first to raise your hand to tackle the latest challenge.
