Job Description

Invent the future of fashion as a senior product manager on the Echo Look team. We’re seeking a PM to deliver major components of our upcoming Fashion AI roadmap. In this role, you’ll help ensure that the world’s first artificially intelligent style assistant is always getting smarter.

About the role:
You will own the creation of new customer-facing features from concept through launch and improve existing features to maximize customer engagement. This will require collaborating closely with design, user research, algorithm, engineering, and other partners. You will participate in user studies to deeply understand customer needs, frustrations, and delights and bring these insights into the product development process. You will write crisp product vision and business requirements documents and review them with stakeholders, potentially including senior executives. You will make and communicate difficult tradeoff and prioritization decisions. You will cultivate relationships with key partners across the company. You will drive execution to ensure timely delivery of all components. This role will include remote collaboration and some travel. Location is flexible between Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area.

About you:
You soak up new information like a sponge, are passionate about building delightful customer experiences, and can operate autonomously in an environment with high ambiguity. You are both a dreamer and a doer -- you enjoy imagining how technology can help solve problems for customers in novel ways, and you have successfully launched consumer web or mobile products at scale. You thrive in a fast-paced environment, love a challenge, are comfortable giving and receiving feedback, and hold yourself to high standards. You can move fluidly between sketching designs on a white board with creative colleagues and working through details with technical partners. You balance strategic, big-picture thinking with acute attention to detail. You are an excellent communicator and a logical thinker. Expertise in computer vision/machine learning is NOT required, but curiosity is.

Basic Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years of product management with a track record of successfully shipping products
  • Ability to communicate effectively with senior management, peers and team members
  • Ability to work closely with engineers and comfort engaging in technical conversations
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Strong analytical and quantitative skills with the ability to use data and metrics to back up assumptions, recommendations and drive actions
  • Demonstrated ability to handle multiple, competing priorities simultaneously

Preferred Qualifications

  • MBA or Master’s degree
  • Degree in computer science or a related technical field
  • Familiarity with data analysis tools/languages such as R, SQL, Stata, Tableau, etc.
  • Experience with machine learning, computer vision, fashion, and/or e-commerce
  • Career emphasis on consumer-facing products
  • Experience with developing mobile apps
