  • Tara helps enterprise companies predict their spec, timeline and personnel needs for future software products, by analyzing their past projects. Today, the process of scoping is a completely manual process; enterprise companies are losing an average of $66Bn through inefficiencies in IT and software project scoping leading to cost and timeline overruns.

    The Role

    We are seeking a Senior Product Manager to join our growing product team here at Collage.com. Our ongoing product goal is for every customer to have an outstanding experience designing and ordering photo products and this position will play a critical role in the continued achievement of that goal.  This position will work closely with a mighty team of product managers, designers, researchers and engineers on the optimization of our existing products as well as driving the expansion into complex new product areas and markets. Most importantly, the Senior Product Manager will be improving the lives of our customers by giving them a platform to create products that they love.  

    Our Product Team Values

    • We believe in developing great product through a deep understanding of our users with a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods, creative use of technology, exemplary design, and an open mindedness to new ideas.

    • We believe that the whole product team - engineers, designers, and product managers - should be actively empowered to contribute to product development.

    • We believe in the lean approach of cheaply and quickly validating assumptions with evidence, and iterating quickly.

    • We are committed to improving the lives of our customers and providing the best possible work environment for our team members.

    Responsibilities

    • Lead and collaborate closely with a product team consisting of designers, researchers, and dedicated engineers.

    • Manage and carry out research to identify, understand, assess, and present user problems and new opportunities.

    • Draft, collect feedback on, and finalize requirements docs and functional specifications for projects to be built by the engineering team.

    • Manage and prioritize a backlog of issues, as well as run biweekly sprints with the engineering lead.

    • Work cross-functionally with other product teams, marketing, physical product team, customer service, and others as needed. Effectively manage dependencies to ensure that the right steps are taken in the right order.

    • Clearly communicate ideas, expectations and progress with stakeholders and with the company as a whole.

    Qualifications

    • 5+ years experience in product management or relevant position is preferred but we are open-minded and more interested in the quality of experience than the years of experience.

    • Successful experience collaborating with engineers, designers, and researchers preferably with a focus on consumer software.

    • Experience putting lean methodologies into practice: capable of finding creative ways to quickly validate assumptions underlying both problems and solutions.

    • A healthy level of skepticism and an analytical nature: ability to quickly absorb and analyze unfamiliar information to make decisions that are supported by sound evidence.

    • Experience with UX research/design, A/B testing, data analysis, market research, e-commerce marketing, and/or software development are a plus.

    Benefits and Perks
