Product Manager

Postlight, New York, NY

We discover, design and build great digital products and services.

We're a community of designers, engineers, and product managers who are passionate about building quality software. While our environment is collaborative and relaxed, we build products that are well-considered and well-architected.

We’re looking for Product Managers with strong technical backgrounds who can rally teams of engineers and product designers, and drive the development of great products. As a Postlight Product Manager, you will sit at the intersection of business, tech, and design. You should feel as comfortable outlining a product strategy as commenting on lines of code in GitHub. We’re looking for people who have led teams, shipped products, and made difficult decisions when necessary.

Who you are:

  • You’re comfortable sitting with clients to define and prioritize product features
  • You collaborate well with engineers and product designers
  • You can make tough decisions and clearly articulate reasons behind them
  • You demonstrate strong leadership and communication skills

Ideally, you have experience with some or all of the following:

  • Programming in web development technologies such as JavaScript, PHP/Ruby/Python, and SQL
  • Segment, Google Analytics, or a comparable web analytics service
  • Wireframing and prototyping tools (Invision, Balsamiq, Proto.io, etc.)
  • Design tools (Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)
  • Project management tools (GitHub Issues, Jira, Pivotal Tracker, Trello, Asana, etc.)

What you’ll be doing:

  • Communicating daily with clients to ensure their continued happiness
  • Working with client stakeholders and users to ensure each product effort is well defined and well built
  • Helping drive client pitch meetings for new potential clients and new work from our existing clients
  • Leading the design, technical development, and launch of innovative products
  • Prioritizing features, building consensus, and coordinating product schedules with our team of engineers and product designers
  • Shipping products that reach millions of users around the world

Whether working on site or remotely, your communication skills will be as important as your technical ones. Collaborating across time zones requires constant, clear communication and coordination, via Slack, GitHub comments, documents, and frequent video conferences. Postlight is headquartered in New York City, but a third of our team works remotely. We know how to keep everyone on the same page, and so should you.

Your skill set will grow at Postlight. You will join a team excited about the problems they solve and the tools they use to solve them. We keep pace with the industry, and are active participants in the open-source world. You will find yourself regularly growing in your career, using new tools and frameworks to solve new kinds of problems—with support from management and mentors.

About Postlight

Postlight is a team of creative technologists working together to build great digital platforms for our clients and for the world. We live by these principles: We ship code on time, we don’t compromise quality, and we bring passion to our work. Our team is made up of product strategists, designers, and engineers, who share the knowledge and experience necessary to ship high-quality new products on time. We work collaboratively — across disciplines and with our clients.

We’re a full-service product shop headquartered at Union Square in Manhattan. We hire incredible talent, and we do everything we can to foster a collaborative, supportive environment where everyone can do their best work.

We offer competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits. There’s medical, dental, and vision coverage from your first day, with some plans at no cost to you. We match 401(k) options and provide a pre-tax commuter benefit. Everyone gets 20 PTO days per calendar year, plus 11 paid holidays, and sick days whenever needed.

We also believe in the importance of parental leave and professional development. We offer paid leave for both primary and secondary caregivers, and a flexible work schedule for returning parents. And we encourage ongoing learning with our Professional Development Program—each employee is entitled to a budget per calendar year to spend on learning initiatives that will help them within and beyond Postlight.

We’re remote-friendly. Half of our engineering team works remotely, so we know how to keep everyone on the same page. While we prefer our product designers and product managers to be local, we’re pretty flexible about working outside of the office if you ever need to.

We also have happy hours about twice a month (if you don’t drink, no pressure), weekly company lunches, and plentiful snacks and soft drinks. We bring remotes into NYC twice a year so everyone gets a chance to hang out. We even have a gym subsidy!

We value representation: women, PoC, and members of the LGBTQ community are leaders, managers, and partners at Postlight. We listen to the concerns of our employees and candidates, and we are doing everything we can to make Postlight a place that values good work, full stop.
