Over the past several years, Employer has been heavily investing to build the best e-commerce shopping app across devices to help consumers create a home they love, wherever they may be. These efforts have resulted in a highly-rated (4.8 stars on the App Store , 4.5 stars on Google Play ), awarded (won the 2018 Webby for shopping), and featured (Apple App of the Day ) experience. But our job is far from finished, with substantial opportunities to deliver against a bold app vision, grow user adoption, improve innovative features like View in Room 3D and Search with Photo , and invent the next wave of revolutionary experiences.

We are looking for an experienced product leader to help us take the App to the next level of great. Your role will be to ensure that the App provides the most loyal Employer customers with the most delightful and immersive experience possible on their devices and unlocks a platform to acquire the next generation of Employer users. This role will own the product experience across all of Employer's brands in all of our targeted geographies (US, Canada, UK, Germany).

This role offers the opportunity to transform the way millions of consumers around the world create homes they love, have a major impact at a rapidly growing $10B public company, partner with executives across the company on a high-profile initiative, and grow our existing cross-functional teams of experienced product managers, software engineers, data scientists, product designers and analysts.

You'll grow the team, and ensure the team has a high degree of psychological safety and impact orientation.
  • Lead your teams to deliver business impact by launching and iteratively optimizing products that improve our user experience in ways that lead to measurable gains in our core CLV-related metrics (e.g., visit frequency, conversion rates, average order values, return rates, NPS).
  • Help us continue building our external reputation as an innovative tech company through public speaking, engaging with our key development partners (including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook and Magic Leap), developing content and attending industry events.
  • As a member of our Product leadership team, help us continually improve our overall department across a variety of topics: recruiting, learning & development, team culture, product development processes, partnering with other Employer departments and external speaking/content generation.
    Qualifications:
