  • Full Time

Deseret Digital Media (we call ourselves DDM), the birthplace and home of the mildly addictive KSL Classifieds, is seeking a dynamic, smart, fun and interesting individual to join the Marketplace Product Management team as a Digital Product Manager for Utah.com.

 

What will the Digital Product Manager do?

Well...frankly, a whole bunch of different stuff. That's part of what makes this a job you'd want to do we guarantee you'll be involved in a lot of things you might not get to do in another role at another company.

 

Utah.com helps travelers plan the trip they'll be talking about on their deathbeds. Our team and contributors have hiked, biked, fished, camped and otherwise geeked our way from Bear Lake to Lake Powell. We friggin' love this place. And we're looking for a team member who feels the same way we do, to help make Utah.com THE place to learn about and worship all things Utah.

 

That's the high-level view. On a day-to-day basis, you'd be doing things like:

  • Developing new user experiences (aka web sites, apps, and other digital goodness), and enhancements to existing products
  • Researching and documenting specific features to create products that make users happy, give them what they need, and keep them coming back and sticking around longer
  • Working with the design team to create wireframes and specifications to communicate the overall direction and vision for new digital products and enhancements
  • Being the point person to work with other scrum teams, the creative team, sales, customer service, and developers to bring digital products to market
  • Promoting and optimizing the Utah.com user experience and brand
  • Using analytics to make data-driven market and product decisions that really make this product SING

 

What does the Digital Product Manager need to have in order to succeed in this role?

A few things, but mainly:

 

  • A passion for the Internet, ecommerce, apps, online products and websites...all things digital. We want someone who spends a lot of time online and using apps and who takes note of what they see and what's out there because they love it
  • And speaking of passion, you'll need a lot of that about the state of Utah, too. We need someone who can't wait to get out and explore, and feel the excitement of sharing the experiences with others whether it is skiing, hiking, finding new or undiscovered restaurants, attending the Sundance (or Slamdance) film festival, or, or, or.
  • 2+ years experience in digital product management and/or digital marketing
  • The desire and propensity to do the right thing by customers, co-workers...humans in general
  • A sense of humor (even better if it's a good sense of humor, although we've been known to be amused by the odd pun)
  • The occasional desire to bring delicious baked snacks in to share with co-workers (you actually baking the snacks yourself not required)
  • The ability and strong desire to innovate, disrupt do new, cool things
  • A Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience
  • Familiarity with the agile development process a strong plus

 

What is great about working at DDM?

We'll just tell you a few things, or we'd be here all day.

 

  • We care about our contribution to the world.

We not only care about the health of the business, we care about our impact on other humans. It's right in our mission statement more than once.

  • We have fun.

We strongly believe that the time you spend at work should be productive but also amusing.

  • We take work/life balance seriously.

No, really. We do. We care about what we do and we expect the work to get done on time, but we know there are extremely, vitally important things about your life outside of work, and we want you to take those things just as seriously.

  • We are passionately interested in trying the new and untested.

Have a new idea? Perfect! That's exactly what we want to hear about, and exactly what we want to try out.

  • We love where we live and what we do.

Our devotion shows in our work. Utah.com visitors expect the very best intel as they plan their trip, and we're proud to deliver.

 

Of course, there are also all the standard things that happen to be great at DDM, like competitive wages, opportunity for growth and advancement, stability, super benefits, a sweet office space, etc etc etc.

 

This sounds great, how do I contact you?

If this sounds like something you'd want to get in on, send us your resume and cover letter (as much as we love meeting new people, we can't take phone calls regarding this role so stick to email please).

 

In your cover letter, please tell us your top two favorite sites and your top two favorite apps, and a couple lines about why you love them they can be ecommerce, media, social network, anything and unless it's really, really the truth, don't feel compelled to say KSL.com. We'll still love you if you don't.
