The Project Catalog team is rapidly growing to build this new marketplace from the ground up, and we're looking for an upbeat product manager to join our team!
- Own your product area: Define and execute a strategy and roadmap to build out entirely new experiences for Upwork’s new Project Catalog offering. You’ll work within a tight-knit team to determine tradeoffs between features and speed to market. You’ll collaborate with analytics to define and analyze success metrics for product features.
- Know your market and customers: You’ll deeply understand and seek key trends in the broader landscape and the specific needs and mentalities of customers on both sides of the marketplace.
- Cross-functional execution: You’ll both lead and partner with other product managers, designers, engineers, and marketing colleagues to execute cross-product and cross-functional initiatives.
- Back up hypotheses with testing: You’ll run quantitative tests that continuously drive new insights to determine iteration and prioritization.
What it takes to catch our eye:
- Experience working as a product manager in a fast-paced environment.
- Experience with building a roadmap, breaking it into experiments for testing hypotheses and working to execute with cross-functional teams.
- Deep empathy for customer needs, frustrations, and aspirations. Familiarity with crafting user experiences and their impact on conversion funnels.
- Analytical chops for running A/B tests, analyzing data, recognizing trends, and identify key levers for optimization
- Excellent communication skills to collaborate with customers, peers, colleagues, and executives. You can succinctly articulate goals, progress, and priorities in written, verbal, and presentation formats.
