About the Position

Moz is looking for a product manager with a great blend of strategic skills with solid tactical chops.  A product management professional that can apply those skills to our SAAS business and Inbound Marketing industry segment.

Responsibilities:

  • Deeply understand our business, industry, and customers; translate needs into product plans, user stories and requirements
  • Understand the bigger picture and help shape strategic plans and decisions related to new features and product additions
  • Contribute creative and innovative ideas to the business.
  • Work closely with SMEs and be able to meld expert domain knowledge with customer info to develop the best solutions.
  • Be the central point of communication and strategic direction for all owned projects.
  • Base decisions and measure success on data/metrics that best convey success.
  • Work effectively with everyone at the company: researchers, developers, designers, marketers, and everyone in between.
  • Analyze potential partner relationships for the product.
  • Keep on top of the details so that nothing slips through the cracks

Some traits we love for this role:

  • TAGFEE (it guides all that we do)
  • Excellent problem solver, creative thinker, and extremely self-motivated.
  • Strong empathy for customers and coworkers.
  • Analytical and detail oriented and able to prioritize, execute and deliver projects on time.
  • Strong CS knowledge. CS background preferred but not required
  • Participation in the social web (blogsphere, YouTube, Twitter, etc.)
  • Experience with Agile processes / scrum.
  • Experience/instincts for information architecture, UX and product design
  • Experience with inbound marketing areas, such as SEO, social media, and web analytics.
  • Experience with either/both Small B2B and Enterprise solution providers.
  • Energy to share with an already energetic (and highly caffeinated) team.

Required:

  • 6+ years of recent experience as a product or program manager in Software/SAAS/Digital Media
  • A high-level understanding and curiosity about technology – you won’t write code, but you need to work intelligently with those who do.
  • Great written and verbal communication skills
  • Able to herd cats, dogs, and the occasional circus animal
  • U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status required
  • Experience in a high-energy startup or an enterprise class software company is a plus
  • Experience in inbound marketing, SEO/SEM, content marketing or social marketing a plus.
