Title: Technical Product Manager
Date Posted: 2017-04-09
Location: DC / NYC
Help Us Create the Future of Media

Axios is an early-stage news startup built around a simple proposition: Deliver the cleanest, smartest, most efficient and trustworthy experience for readers and advertisers alike. We have a leadership team of successful industry veterans with deep experience turning big ideas into reality. We're looking for a Technical Product Manager (title TBD, commensurate with experience) to join our small team to help us develop ambitious plans for our future, and execute against those plans with precision.

Some more about you:

You want to create something new

The idea of coming in on the ground floor and getting to shape a new product from scratch gets your creative juices flowing. If you're already in the media industry, maybe you see what's not working well and would love the opportunity to make it better and introduce radically new ideas. You put emphasis on smart experimentation, agility and having fun.

You think deeply about both detailed interactions and strategic goals

You understand how the little things add up to make the big things succeed or fail. You can define a set of long-term goals and immediately see how to make them possible in small, measurable ways. You're equally comfortable pitching to executives as you are walking through a paper prototype review.

You have a box full of tools

You've been around a few challenging projects before, and have built up a set of skills along the way. You've worked with different methods (with some Agile experience in there) but aren't dogmatic about process. You can keep the lights on with just some Post-its, but can whip a robust workflow together using Asana, JIRA, Trello, Github Projects, and other similar tools.

You are steady under pressure

You'll be the central point of contact for just about everyone, either for collecting statuses and issues, or for reporting progress updates. You communicate clearly and truthfully in any situation, thrive on solving problems, and advocate for transparency and openness. You can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs.

You know a little about a lot of things

You know enough to hold conversations with developers, designers, account executives, reporters, marketers, event planners, and more, all while speaking their languages and understanding their goals. You have experience working with technical teams, and can help find workarounds when obstacles become impassable. You make everyone feel heard and understood, even if they're not getting everything they want on the schedule they demand.

You like working with other thoughtful people

You're the kind of strategist who loves hatching a plan with your colleagues and driving it to completion. You enjoy working on distributed teams and are a fantastic communicator across every medium, from Slack to in-person. You thrive on new ideas and perspectives, because you know that a great team can accomplish so much more than one person can, no matter how talented they are.

Some more about us:

We are a small, flexible technology team who are building a whole new way of creating and distributing news. We're composed of veterans from marquee media companies and are excited to build a new one from the ground up. This opportunity is a unique one to have responsibility and oversight in a quickly-growing group.

We are a stable company. We have a large series A from top-flight VCs, and an A-list leadership team in place. We are serious about success and are looking for the best talent to join us on this journey.
