We are looking for a Senior Product Leader to develop operational and innovative Animation products for our Animation studio. Leaning on a proven track record in product management or technical Animation strategy, we expect this leader to refine and drive our product vision for what Animation products look like within our studio. These efforts will include managing a team of product managers with distinct product lanes, build vs. buy analysis related to ecosystem growth, and developing key partnerships with engineering, design, research, and studio personnel to execute across our Animation portfolio.
In this role you will:
Drive strategy first, solutions second. A leader who can partner with a variety of Animation personnel to derive business strategy then actualizes that strategy with both operational and innovative products.
Own some, but collaborate more. Drive the overall animation product strategy and own key decisions on when to build bespoke (some) versus when to collaborate with other product leaders (more).
Exercise flexibility vs. conviction. Use personal judgment on when to pivot the product strategy as the business pivots or stand firm on initiatives with grit and persistence.
Balance near term business problems and foundational operating requirements with opportunities for innovation and change management.
The organization is flat, process is minimal, individual responsibility is big, and you are empowered to prioritize and make decisions to drive impact for the business.
Here is what we are looking for:
10+ years of experience as a product manager or technology leader working across a mix of consumer, enterprise, and internal tools with a media or content creation focus.
Experience with animation pipeline software and animation production management extremely valuable.
Technical fluency, including an ability to clearly describe tradeoffs between users, studio leaders, designers and engineering partners.
A master of organization and prioritization who has the ability to triage multiple initiatives with a keen ability to focus team efforts on tackling the right problems at the right time.
Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including an affinity for socializing product complexity with ease to a variety of audiences.
