At Discovery, our mission is to serve passionate fans with content that inspires, informs and entertains with leadership across deeply loved and trusted brands.


We’re looking for the next great sr. product manager to join us in this adventure, and we’re hoping it’s you!

As sr. product manager for Discovery Digital Media, you’ll help shape the strategy, and drive the execution and successful delivery of our top-rated TV Everywhere apps across Discovery’s US TV brands (such as Discovery Channel, HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigtaion Discovery, Animal Planet, and Travel Channel, among others).

Your passion will be to discover, develop and ship products and features that deliver both meaningful benefit to our users and strategic success for our company.

Day-to-day, you’ll succeed by learning what’s worth doing that is simultaneously usable, valuable, and feasible, through utilizing product discovery and design thinking. You’ll connect regularly with customers to become expert on our audience and industry. You’ll lead and motivate a dedicated, cross-functional Agile team by communicating vision, authoring user stories, prioritizing the backlog, and coordinating regularly and clearly with partners and stakeholders.

3. Define and build consensus on meaningful metrics for success
4. Prioritize features and enhancements in story backlog
5. Build and maintain product plans to create value for users and grow the business
6. Author use cases and user stories and build shared understanding
7. Discover opportunities worth pursuing through rapid experimentation via product discovery, A/B testing, and design thinking methods
8. Identify and map customer goals, values and needs more than “wants” or “table stakes”
9. Inform decisions with qualitative and quantitative data
10. Ensure good communication and transparency by partnering with internal teams including editorial, marketing, advertising, business development, etc
11. Coordinate with product peers and their teams to share learnings and ensure quality cross-platform experience



Qualifications

* 3 -5 years or more of product management experience
* TVE/D2C/Connected TV/Mobile/native app industry and domain experience

As the ideal candidate, you’re a driven, passionate advocate for your customers and your business, with a sense of urgency to make things better wherever you are. You’re always handy with a strong point of view, but you’re open-minded and can admit when you’re wrong. Your teams love working with you because you’re a pleasure to be around and lead through inspiration and motivation rather than rules and hierarchies. A good story has made your way more than a good data point, but you’ve always got both at hand.

If this sounds like you, and you’re excited to work with great people and the global leader in real life entertainment, we’d love to meet up!
