  • Establish a strong partnership with other teams to enable BookBub to hit quarterly growth and engagement targets

Ideal candidates for the position will have most of the following experience and skills:

  • Product management experience with a fast-paced consumer internet company
  • Demonstrated track record of driving significant user adoption, growth and engagement
  • Excellent analytical instincts, deep intellectual curiosity, and a strong belief in making data-driven decisions
  • Ability to absorb technical concepts and communicate them to a non-technical audience
  • A well-honed ability to assess customer needs and preferences through user surveys, A/B testing, market research, data analysis, and rapid experimentation
  • Familiarity with user experience and user interface best practices across desktop, mobile web and mobile app products
  • Experience with funnel optimization, SEO, referral programs or viral features
  • Ability to lead and influence without being the direct manager
  • Ability to distill complex concepts into easily digestible information and drive stakeholder alignment
  • Outcome oriented: ability to articulate the desired outcome and work collaboratively to achieve it
