I’m looking for a product manager to own defining the features and functionality of our product. Here’s the spec, please let me know if you know anyone. Thanks!
Senior Director of Product Management
Brand advertising dollars are skyrocketing on the internet, and publisher traffic growth is not keeping up, creating a pressing need for optimization tools that give publishers the inventory control required to capture these ad dollars. Yieldex is a venture-funded startup with patent-pending optimization algorithms, built by some of the folks who invented the first online ad systems at NetGravity and Matchlogic.
Our next key hire is a product person, someone who knows the ad operations side from inside and out, and can make sure the product we build has the “wow” features that deliver huge value to our customers, without neglecting the required functionality that customers need. Ideally this person has worked at a publisher or ad network between ad sales and the ad technology group, and knows both how the sales process works, and what existing systems are currently capable of. This position could be Senior Product Manager, Director or even VP level, but we need a doer, not a manager. This person will be gathering feedback from customers, writing functional specs, and working with the engineers on a daily basis to refine the product for the market. Key attributes are the smarts to integrate lots of complex input, the ability to work with both customers and engineers, and the organizational skill to make sure nothing falls through the cracks. Actual product management experience is a plus, but not a requirement.
The engineering team is located in Boulder, CO, and the business team is in San Mateo, CA. This position could be either location, but would require some travel between them, and in particular would need to spend time with the engineers in Boulder. There would also be travel to customers.
Please contact jobs at yieldex.com to apply. Thank you.
