🌟 The Opportunity
Together with the Senior Product leadership (CPO, VP Product, etc.), this enthusiastic global Product team is defining our product vision and roadmap.
commercetools for Growth is a newly created solution (and team) that will enable Scaling Brands & Merchants to quickly launch on a flexible, best-in-class composable stack with low effort and without the need for a big development team, keeping their iteration speed high to optimize business outcomes. The key to achieving this is to build a bundle of market-leading MACH products (commercetools products and partner products) that are perfectly connected and pre-configured. This will enable Scaling Brand and Merchants to launch quickly, iterate fast through business-user tooling and make sure that this is the last re-platforming they will ever have to do.
This is a great opportunity to marshal a product that has the potential to have a long-lasting impact on the commerce landscape for aspiring brands and retailers. If you are looking for a place where your contribution makes a difference, and if you never want to stop learning and growing, join our product management team!
🚀 Your Mission
- Design and improve the vision and implementation of the actual bundle of MACH products that form commercetools for Growth
- Make sure (together with engineering), that the technical architecture of the commercetools for Growth bundle is best-in-class
- Own the connectors between the MACH products in the bundle from a product perspective
- Lead initiatives to enhance the experience of customer interaction with such a bundled solution (e.g. SSO, business user interface, etc.)
- In the end, build the core of the commercetools for Growth solution, so the “Fast-Launch-Store team” (second team in commercetools for Growth) can take the bundle and pre-configure it and enhance it to enable the customers to launch faster and faster
- Think big, scope small, and quickly iterate collectively with your team to make sure that you solve the right problems
- Use your product sense, collectively with a qualitative and data-informed approach to creating a solution brands and retailers love
- Become part of our product community. We like to grow and learn together, including regular knowledge exchange sessions plus coaching from peers and the Head of Product.
