A Little about You 

You have experience in a product management role.  You have a Bachelor’s Degree, preferably with a concentration in Marketing. Ideally, you have 3+ years of experience in consumer goods, multi-category or multi-company marketing, innovation, or product development. You understand the product management process, can develop robust business cases for New Products using market research, consumer insights etc.  You may even have dabbled in e-commerce.

 

You are a strategic thinker, entrepreneurial, and creative.  You have strong insights into business and can comprehend the effects decisions have on a business. You are creative in your approach, able to develop unique and compelling ideas but are able to dive into the executable details to ensure it is realistic.

 

You are a strong communicator.  You work well with others and can confidently communicate, whether in-person, on the phone or via email, with a variety of people, including those you have never met.  You are a confident presenter and writer, always communicating complex ideas and technical information clearly. Giving presentations is no problem for you.

 

You are a problem solver. If you don’t have the answer, you can figure it out or find it in a timely manner. You have a lot of ideas when it comes to troubleshooting and are determined to fix the problem at hand. You also recognize when issues need to be escalated for a prompt solution. You love being resourceful and can thrive in unclear situations!

 

You are a self-starter.  You have the unique ability to be self-motivated in accomplishing overall corporate directives.  You work well on your own and don't require oversight from your manager.  They trust you to execute accurately and with little to no error, even when you have multiple projects to manage at any given time. 

 

Project management is a strong suit for you.  Aggressive deadlines and large projects do not scare you.  After all, you are an excellent multi-tasker and never let a to-do item slip past you. Even when you have multiple projects to manage with competing priorities, you deliver results on time and error free.   

 

You are willing to jump right in. You love helping others and are willing to support the team wherever needed for systems. You don’t need a ton of supervision because you’re accountable and can juggle a variety of tasks as they come in. You’re also a quick learner, which makes new tasks easy for you.
