CafeMom is looking for a Product Manager who will be responsible for managing our core features on the site. We’re looking for someone who not only understand moms’ needs and can visualize products that help meet those needs, but who can also dig in, help work on coding pages, making site updates or contribute in any number of ways. Ideal product management candidates will be happy to get their hands dirty and work on every phase on product development. You should feel as comfortable in code or Photoshop as you do in Word or Visio. Candidates must have experience working on consumer-facing websites.

Responsibilities:

•Lead the development of new features, including defining the concept, creating specifications, defining user experience, managing design and development, and post-launch maintenance
•Manage efforts to make enhancements to existing core site features on cafemom.com
•Integrate usability studies, member research and market analysis into product requirements to ensure that products satisfy member needs
•Produce detailed product requirements for design and development teammates
•Move projects swiftly and efficiently through the entire project lifecycle by interfacing directly with design, development and marketing teammates
•Implement A/B or multivariate testing, as appropriate, for optimization of core site features
•Analyze product performance and user engagement – pre/post development

Experience:

•3 -5 years in web product management – community, online forums, or social media a plus
•Deep understanding of the web and usability best practices
•Strong quantitative and analytical skills including fluency in A/B and multivariate testing
•Demonstrated ability to build great products on time
•Strong written and verbal communication skills (including copy writing)
•Highly organized and a self-starter – ability to set priorities and work independently in a fast paced, lightly-structured environment

How to Apply:

Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter with salary requirements to hr@cafemom.com. The subject line of your email should read "PRODUCT MANAGER".

We regret that we are unable to respond to each resume. Only those individuals selected for interviews will be contacted. CafeMom is an equal opportunity employer.
