The Economist is the leading source of analysis on international business and world affairs. We deliver our information through a range of formats, from newspapers and magazines to Apple TV/OTT apps and VR Experiences. What ties us together is the objectivity of our opinion, the originality of our insight and our advocacy of economic and political freedom around the world.
Do you care about building the right thing more than building the thing right? Do you care about solving problems for users more than using the latest technologies or following the latest trends? Do you want to serve a clear business strategy by solving those problems?
If so you might be a good fit for The Economist’s product management team.
A strategic, inspirational and adaptable product manager is wanted who will report directly to the VP of Product. You will have the opportunity to improve the conversion rate once the customer starts the purchase flow. You will also lead the process in allowing users to manage their subscriptions and account details online, setting and executing a clear product strategy for your product based on the needs of the business, while meeting the needs of its end users. You will need to evangelise that strategy throughout the organisation.
As the Product Manager for the Global Business Review product you will be instrumental in making our growth strategy in China work and ensure that we take a holistic approach to improving our customers’ subscription experience across product offering in China.
You will also have the opportunity to communicate with and respond to the needs of stakeholders in commercial, editorial and technology, without losing focus of your product strategy. You should be able to form hypotheses about what will benefit the business and the users based on the knowledge and ideas of yourself, the team and the wider stakeholders. You will use the results of data analytics and qualitative user research to test those hypotheses, revising or dropping them as the evidence suggests.
