Product Management | Partners
Product Management, a role that used to be all about on-time delivery, Kanban, and agile delivery has naturally evolved into a space, where guess what; it’s all about the customer. True, these frameworks are still really important, yet we are pretty damn stoked to introduce to you a product role that is all about finding places of friction, and building scalable products and features that meet the goals of both our mates at 99designs and their partners – helping them build and scale their own unique marketplaces.
A little bit about this opportunity [My jargon explained…]
Well, I am going to lead strong here [again…]; there is not an opportunity in product management quite like this one. Why? Well, there aren’t too many where you get to work with the likes of Amazon, Facebook [oops sorry I mean Meta], Square, Squarespace – helping them increase their value.
This role is all about driving business growth through product development of partner APIs, expanding partner capabilities, and supporting existing partner offerings and marketplaces.
So looking for a role with real impact? This is it.
99designs platform is accessed by millions of entrepreneurs and creators around the world. Working within a cross-functional team including the product designer, tech lead, user research, and data analyst you will help to define and drive a scalable partner strategy and capabilities.
You’ll work directly with key strategic partners; building and deepening relationships to further enable partners to not only further leverage all that 99designs by Vista has to offer but also take greater control over building their own marketplace experiences.
Together with your team, you’ll identify and decide on the highest impact initiatives for the squad’s quarterly OKRs. You’ll hone in on specific problems, form hypotheses, run experiments and measure results to move the needle and unlock scalable partner capabilities and growth. This is an opportunity to search out places of friction and build scalable products and features to meet the goals of both 99d, their partners as well as the broader Vista platform.
A little bit about you
The nexus between design, engineering and the customer; you are empathetic to alternate perspectives and can bring a good calming presence mixed with an ambitious imagination and drive to discover and create new opportunities. A human with solid product management experience, you are curious by nature and possess a passion for diving head first into understanding 99designs’ partners and how they can leverage the platform in order to grow and expand their marketplaces.
You’re an analytical problem solver who can listen, with the ability to build, and balance relationships with a wide array of internal and external stakeholders in pursuit of positive outcomes.
