The Role

As Media and Commerce continue to merge, we're innovating quickly in the space where content guides the discovery of new products to purchase online. We have tons of compelling projects on the go, and are looking for an experienced Product Manager who is eager to help create the future of BuzzFeed Shopping.

You'll work on a team that owns all-things BuzzFeed Commerce. From the tools our Editors use to write Shopping posts to the Shopping experiences our users see to the technology that supports our affiliate advertising and the data we use for our Commerce Intelligence systems, the Commerce Tech team is responsible end-to-end.

With our main products in a really solid space, 2021 is about growth, new ventures and big opportunities—and we're very excited to add another Product Manager to help us dream, build, experiment, learn, and build some more.

You Will

  • Communicate and coordinate the team's plans and product launches with partners within and outside of Tech
  • Keep your eye on trends in the Media and Commerce space, share new ideas, and be open to new experiments

You Have

  • Experienced: You have hands-on experience launching and managing digital products, with a slant towards a consumer experience and how that drives the business and 2+ years of product management experience
  • Collaborative and communicative: You have a demonstrated ability to work well and communicate with engineers, designers, and data scientists -- experience working with business and editorial team members is a plus
  • Curious, analytical, and motivated: You don't merely accept outliers in data, but investigate and dive into the numbers to find novel insights and new product ideas
  • Comfortable in the spotlight: You will need to work with and help influence senior leaders across the company to promote the team's vision and product strategy in a fast-growing and revenue-driving space
  • Interested in and knowledge of eCommerce: You're intrigued by the online shopping space and energized by growing a commerce business. Experience here is a huge plus.
