Associate Director, Product Management - Verywell

Product Management New York, New York

About Your Role:

Verywell is your source for reliable, comprehensive, easy to understand information and advice on hundreds of health and wellness topics including fitness, nutrition, health insurance, pregnancy, and more.

As the Associate Director, Product Management for Verywell, you know that building a great health UX requires being able to grok how real people solve their health problems. You recognize that health and wellness is not a one-time cure all, but a lifelong journey. You excel at dreaming up ways to turn a moment of crisis into wellness and have an ability to explain it all to brainy designers, engineers, and writers—plus the people who care about numbers, aka “the business.” You are able to juggle the needs of multiple audience segments—those suffering from a condition, their caretakers, fitness beginners and enthusiasts, expecting and new moms, etc.—and develop strategic product plans for each of them.

About Your Contributions:

  • Congratulate the scrum team on the release of an awesome, new feature
  • Watch a person using the site and observe what’s working and what’s not
  • Review your product roadmap and strategy with your GM and CEO
  • Host a call to share best practices with our partners at the Cleveland Clinic
  • Walk an engineer and a designer through some product requirements
  • Teach the Verywell content team how to use a new feature
  • Coordinate with fellow Product Managers on the sequence of a cross-team project

About You:

  • Figuring out user problems and pain points
  • Coming up with a big-picture product strategy for meeting user needs, selling it, and then working out the details to get the plan over the finish line
  • Communicating and collaborating with a wide range of teams and stakeholders to build great products
  • Collecting, synthesizing and analyzing data
  • Knowing what makes a great publishing brand because you’ve done this before, e.g. experience at a premium, digital publisher.
