Product
Full-time

You know what it takes to make a great product. You appreciate the beauty and importance of creativity and community. You like to identify and solve problems and have a track record of influencing both creatives and technologists to execute on a vision. You are personable, understand the languages of the creative and development worlds, and you take care of business.

As a Senior Product Manager for Growth, you will be responsible for improving the effectiveness of VSCO’s conversion funnels.

Doing so will require strong qualitative and quantitative research abilities, with a knack for thinking outside the box to bring surprise and delight to the most fickle of users. You’ll work iteratively to ship and test these experiments, partnering closely with iOS, Android, and Web engineering to implement and measure their effectiveness.
