Job Description

This individual should be comfortable with ambiguity and passionate about ideating and building products that are either in early-stage development or not present on the company’s product roadmap.

- Clearly articulate the product requirements based on feedback from analysis, users, and business requirements.

- Report on the status of all ongoing projects, ensuring deadlines and milestones are met.

- Maintain product P&Ls and forecasts, monitor product delivery/quality issues and competitive landscape, and interact with key opinion leaders.

- Monitor and continuously optimize products once they are in market.

- Work with the team to create/prepare presentations for Leadership Team / Board / Potential Investors that clearly articulate product strategy, design concepts, and product development methodology.


Requirements:

- 10+ years of hands-on experience in product development and product management, leading teams of product managers and designers, and interfacing closely with developers and technology vendors

- Passion for and interest in the wellness space (plant-based, a plus)

- Track record of building successful and profitable products out of strategic concepts and self-formulated new product ideas

- Product visionary attributes, with a background in ideating innovative products that propel companies to the forefront of their markets

- Firm grasp on the interconnected relationship between product and engineering teams (and product and marketing) with strong thoughts on how best to manage projects/teams effectively

- Expert understanding of agile/lean product development processes including initiation, requirements gathering, analysis and design, development tools and technologies, release and version control, contemporary testing methodologies, and deployment management

- Ability to effectively present designs, data and analysis used for both internal stakeholders and external partners and investors

- Ability to meet deadlines and manage a heavy workload, providing visibility into the workflow and portfolio. In this environment, you can easily shift from big picture strategy to hands-on execution

- Outstanding strategic planning skills, with the ability to quickly and effectively take complex company objectives and translate them into a plan of action for a team

- Personality profile to fit into a high-growth, fast-paced culture that requires teamwork and significant interaction with employees at all levels
