Product Management Lead

| Brooklyn

Work & Co (work.co) defines and launches the world's most successful digital products and services. With offices in the United States, Brazil and Europe, we've become the go-to partner for IKEA, Lyft, Google, Apple, Epic Games, Mailchimp, Aesop, Etsy, ALDO and many other globally respected companies. As Fast Company noted, our engineering and design teams are “routinely entrusted with creating digital product for companies which rarely approach outside firms.” No time sheets, just fully-dedicated teams. Forrester Research calls our approach “a model to follow.”

Product Managers at Work & Co are cross-functional leaders who work with project teams to define, create, and launch digital products that define great brands. Part strategist, part project manager, and part client partner, the Product Management Lead owns the full product development lifecycle and works in a collaborative, agile fashion. The Product Management Lead drives projects from the initial concept through large-scale product release to post-launch optimization.

Teams at Work & Co are small and very experienced. As a Product Management Lead, you will lead engagements alongside company partners as well as the top designers and technologists in the industry. You will share our love for making great products and services and shipping them on time. Along the way, you will develop new skills - from prototyping to analytics - as you partner with innovative clients.

To do this well, applicants will need an entrepreneurial spirit, an intellectual curiosity, and a bias towards action. The successful Product Management Lead works collaboratively, communicates effectively, and drives consensus. He or she balances the ultimate user experience with business goals, and breaks down complex problems in order to locate and manage their solutions. A Product Management Lead plans, prioritizes, and understands the bigger picture as well as the relevant details. This person tackles new problems, platforms, and industries.

What You Can Expect to Do

  • Partner with clients to understand business objectives, user behaviors, and product vision
  • Develop product concepts, roadmaps, test plans, and functional specifications documentation
  • Collaborate with designers and engineers to conceptualize, design, and deliver multi-platform applications

What We're After

  • Demonstrated project management skills: planning and directing teams, scoping, contract-writing
  • Experience delivering web, mobile, and gaming platform projects
  • Track record of shipping on time
  • Familiarity with current and emerging technologies
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills - Product Management Lead works across Work & Co functional teams as well as partners closely with clients on all work
  • Smart, proactive leadership
  • An interest in strategy, design, or development

At Work & Co, we believe diversity is essential to creating the best digital products. We're proud to be an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, citizenship, national origin of employees, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, veteran status or any other legally protected status.

An Insider's view of Work & Co

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Every day, I get to work alongside insanely talented people I respect. Our office environments are designed to help us focus on our craft — whether that be coding or digital design or strategy. We also push against burnout and discourage long hours. No time sheets. Everyone should get to be their best selves both in and out of the office.

Rafael

Design Director

What projects are you most excited about?

Creating products that launch is our priority. Having world-class design and engineering talent ensures that these experiences are beautiful and functional. Utility is also important. We always want to add value to people’s lives.

Muriel

Group Director, Product

How does the company support your career growth?

We believe in mentors, not managers. And we see mentorship as a right. At Work & Co, every employee gets a dedicated mentor from day one. Our flatter structure also means we learn from one another, informally, on an ongoing basis.

Caitlin

Group Director, Talent

What is your vision for the company?

Work & Co's mission has been clear since day one. We exist to create —and launch— the digital products and experiences millions of people love using every day. We exist to raise the bar. Our approach is to be the best at a few things versus average at a dozen.

Marcelo

Partner, Technology

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We’re all encouraged to contribute and collectively push boundaries. The best ideas can come from anywhere. All disciplines —designers, engineers, strategists, PMs— sit together in project teams. Our flat structure ensures there's not a rift between senior and junior talent in the company. The result is a workplace that enables continuous learning.
