Product Manager at 99Designs

Full Time, Product, AU - Melbourne, Victoria melbourne product full-time
Posted a month ago

Product Management can be many things, so I’m calling out that this is one for those individuals that just THRIVE working with ambiguity, and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty!  Those individuals that can take clear and lofty goals but can decide which path to follow and which problem spaces to focus on all on their very own.

So if you’re a product folk, thinking about opportunities that are complex and interesting where you can apply your natural curiosity, problem solving, and good dose of experimentation, then take a look-see at the good things happening with our friends at 99designs.  

99designs by Vista is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Since 2008, our freelance community has brought more than one million creative projects to life for thousands of genius entrepreneurs, savvy small business owners, and brands with big ideas. As part of the Vista family, which includes VistaPrint and VistaCreate, 99designs helps small businesses thrive with expert design at their fingertips.

A little bit about this opportunity
The 99designs’ platform is accessed by millions of entrepreneurs and creators around the world and hence why this role is so important to the business’ success, as it’s all about diving into customer and creator acquisition funnels to improve growth metrics.  

You’ll partner closely and collaboratively with the marketing team, and identify and decide on highest impact initiatives, form hypotheses, run experiments and measure results to inform future product development and optimisation.  This could be anything from SEO, conversion, and empowering the marketing team to be able to push growth further through tooling, services and campaigns.

So looking for a role with real impact? This is it. 

A little bit about you
The role is at the intersection of product and marketing, so you will be data driven, using data to help improve the user experience of our customers, and you’ll have a bias for action.  You’re willing to make decisions, no matter how bold, and move forward.  If it turns out you need to pivot or learn from these decisions, that’s cool too.  

It’s an opportunity to search out places of friction, and create highly personalised experiences and build innovative products and features. And it's absolutely responsible for moving the needle on acquisition through experimentation. A love of experimentation should be in your bag of tricks!  

You’re great at letting people know what’s going on and have the ability to stay focused where the most value is to be gained.  You are the master of balancing competing needs, you can balance design, technology, and business while keeping in mind the often conflicting needs of the creator community and clients.
