About the job

We need an enthusiastic product thinker to help our team build and execute a strategy for our big aspiration. By using data and customer insights, you will envision and build delightful and revolutionary experiences.
Your focus will be on driving the development of Joyn’s VoD streaming and video advertising, making sure our content is monetized, while providing a meaningful and unobtrusive customer experience. You will be an active part of Joyn’s product management team, and work with skilled teams of engineers and UXers to execute on our product strategy.

What you tell people at parties

“I work for this really cool tech startup, enabling meaningful and unobtrusive ad experiences that allow our customers enjoy great contents free-of-charge.”

What you do

    • Execute and potentially develop the product strategy and roadmap for VoD streaming and video advertising
    • Work together with engineering and UX in an agile team (the VoD & Ads team), own the team’s backlog, and apply agile best practices to continuously create consumer value together with your team
    • Become an authority on your product area and identify areas of opportunity through research and data
    • Define, understand, and improve key funnels and metrics
    • Own features and experiments end-to-end, including writing product specs and creating wires, driving cross-functional execution, making thoughtful product decisions along the way, and sharing insights and results throughout the company

What we are asking

    • Proven experience leading major product or growth initiatives in fast-paced software development environments: You have a track record of taking rough themes and big ideas, turning them into a roadmap of features, experiments, and research with minimal guidance, and implementing product features in an agile fashion
    • Data-driven mindset: You deeply understand how your product works and how to measure long-term impact; you know every step of the funnel; you can design, run, and interpret experiments and A/B tests, and probably know a bit of SQL
    • Technical and business fluency: You are able to understand and discuss concepts and new opportunities with technical team members; you have an interest in video streaming, ad tech, and the business aspects around those; you are not afraid of acronyms such as ABR, AWS, CDN, CPC, CPM, CTR, DMP, DRM, DSP, GAM, H.26x, IAB, I/O, JSON, VAST, VMAP, VPAID, RTB, SSAI, SSP - and it’s a big plus if you are already familiar with some of that stuff
    • Ability to think both big and small: You are as comfortable whiteboarding a completely new experience as you are optimizing an existing flow and know when to do which
    • Product taste and craftsmanship: You are the voice of our users, you are passionate about identifying and solving meaningful user problems
    • Natural leadership: You know how to influence people to get things done across any job function; people love working with you
    • Strong communication: You speak English fluently, and your written communication is clear and effective
