If you’re a product-oriented person who has always wanted to work on a product that is all about other products but at the same time is very much a product of its own that needs a great product vision — you’re in luck!
TechCrunch is in the hunt for a product manager, one who knows the difference between Product Hunt, Cool Hunter and a Fred Dryer procedural from the 80’s, if you know what I mean.
Kidding aside, TechCrunch is a product, and we’re looking for someone with the drive and vision to slice out new ways to report and opine. We cover the bleeding edge of products every day and we believe this site should reflect that in its nimble and progressive presentation. Some of that we’re already getting right and some of it is up to you — yes, you.
If you’re a product leader who has experience with the tech and procedures of a media site including content management, publishing, video, advertising, audience growth and performance then we’re looking for you. TechCrunch is growing by leaps and bounds every month, and we need people who can track that growth using analytics as well as boost it using tools like SEO, product updates, media partnerships and more.
You’ll be heading a great product team, so you should be prepared to be a strong, thoughtful leader who can tackle major products like redesigns as well as smaller, more agile experiments that help us to create and share great editorial content. Projects to be managed will include collaboration between internal development teams at TechCrunch as well as external contractors, and often taking input from the editorial, events and business groups inside the company.
TechCrunch is an extremely progressive organization with a blistering fast pace, so any candidate for the job will need to be able to collaborate and communicate well in the face of pressure.
