Product Manager

Product Management | San Francisco, CA | Full Time

Job Description

Do you love travel? Do you want to be part of a winning company, and play a leading role in building relevant, innovative advertising products for the travel vertical?

 

Who are we?

Sojern is travel's leading data-driven performance marketing engine. We have been called "the most successful Big Data marketer in travel" and earned the fastest growing travel technology company distinction on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 for 3 years running.

Working with over 800 global travel brands, we aspire to be travel’s leading performance marketing engine using billions of data points and our travel data platform to put more heads in beds, butts in seats and tourists in towns than anyone else!

You will be based in our San Francisco headquarters. We also have key offices in New York, Omaha, London, Dublin, Paris, Dubai and Singapore.

 

Who are you?

You are an experienced product manager with deep knowledge of online ad tech and performance marketing in e-commerce. You have formed your own point of view on where advertising is headed and how to deliver successful products in a rapidly changing ecosystem. You have built and shipped relevant products in the past, owning the entire end-to-end process from ideation to rollout and post-rollout management. You know what it means to own a product and desire to be in a position of personal responsibility for your product’s growth and ongoing success.

In short - you are the CEO of the products you own.

You have raving fans who love your approach to product management, both on the technical and commercial teams. Internal customers trust your judgment and applaud your communication skills. Engineering leaders approve of your specifications -- they are neither bare-bones haikus, nor are they overly-prescriptive...they are just right.

You have a strong customer service orientation, and think about the needs/wants of both internal and external customers in your daily decision-making and product leadership approach. You  are a natural problem solver, have a “no excuses” mentality and generally maintain a positive outlook when difficulties arise. You have excellent time management skills, and possess the ability to focus intently on a given product or feature and work relentlessly to design the “right” product.

You are technical, if not an engineer. You probably have around 2-4 years of recent product management experience in online advertising or the online travel sector. More likely than not, you graduated from a rigorous undergraduate academic program with good marks.

 

What will you be doing?

  • You will own the product roadmap for one or two major product lines as part of Property Solutions product team. Your end-to-end product lifecycle management responsibilities will include: ideation, stakeholder management, customer feedback, product development, rollout/go-to-market strategy, and ongoing, continuous innovation for your product(s)

  • You will lead at least one cross-functional team, comprised of leaders from multiple disciplines within the company, focused on the ongoing success of your product(s)

 

You will be:

  • Data-driven and results-oriented

  • Able to ruthlessly prioritize your backlogs in the midst of rapid evolutionary change

  • Experienced in agile development methodologies

  • Exceptionally good at authentically understanding the needs of our customers, and representing those needs in the form of concrete product requirements

  • Self-motivated; exhibiting strong self-management and a sense of urgency

  • Able to manage multiple projects and collaborate effectively with other people and departments in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.  

  • An exceptionally strong writer and presenter

  • Able to get things done amid tight time constraints

  • Willing to travel occasionally (international and domestic)

 

You will have:

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. Strong preference given for computer science (CS) or engineering / mathematics / science undergraduate degrees. A Master’s degree is also highly desirable

  • 2-4  years of relevant experience, with at least 2 years in product management

  • Samples of product requirements that you can share, or the ability to otherwise demonstrate personal excellence in this area

  • A strong technical acumen and passion for data science

 

You will get Bonus Points for:

  • Recent experience in ad tech with strong knowledge of programmatic advertising knowledge and big data

  • Travel sector experience

  • Familiarity with Attribution, Analytics and A/B Testing

  • Previous engineering experience or demonstrable computer science background
