From brilliant creatives, to technology trailblazers, across the globe, WBD offers career defining opportunities, thoughtfully curated benefits, and the tools to explore and grow into your best selves. Here you are supported, here you are celebrated, here you can thrive. Senior Product Manager - WBD Sports
As a Senior Product Manager in the WBD Sports team you will be responsible for shaping the customer experience for millions of users who care passionately about what you do. You will play a leadership role in the WBD Sports product team - leading on product discovery, roadmap definition and ensuring that your team - and teams that you work with deliver the right features for customers at pace
You will do this by working with customer insights, stakeholders, designers, and technology partners to determine value - for our customers and for our business. You will then crystallise that into tightly defined project artefacts that can be easily understood and refined by our engineering teams. Either by coaching, mentoring and leading product managers in your team - or taking direct responsibility yourself. In this role you will need to be able to roll your sleeves up and lead on the definition of project artefacts - as well as identify the right opportunities to empower junior members of the team. Where ambiguity exists, you will make the right calls and be biased towards action.
You will be as at home working with editorial, insight, marketing, customer service, legal and commercial teams - as you are with our partners in tech. And you will be a great communicator with all these audiences, able to achieve buy in for your ideas, whether by written or oral communication.
This role will report to the Product lead for Eurosport and TNT Sports digital products and within that role you may be expected to work with software teams across web, apps, and Connected TV platforms. You will be expected to work autonomously across complex feature development, driving resolution and clarity for your tech partners - and leading your product team towards the same.
We are looking for a Senior product manager with leadership experience who demonstrates product expertise, advocates for the consumer, consistently collaborates with the stakeholders, and creates impact. The ideal candidate will be a fast-learning, enthusiastic and highly motivated product person with a passion for customer experience and sports.Key Responsibilities:
How We Get Things Done...
- Create high-quality product artefacts - JIRA tickets, confluence documents, design briefs, and acceptance criteria to define the product/ feature requirements clearly and concisely.
