PhotoShelter, the worldwide leader in photography portfolio websites and business tools, seeks an experienced director of product management to join our team. Your work will be focused on driving the evolution of our platform as we introduce powerful new features that change the way photography is displayed, managed, marketed, sold, and delivered online. You will work closely with our world-class, in-house team of developers, marketers, and designers to take our service to new levels.
PhotoShelter has a strong reputation as a technology leader in the photo industry. We pioneered cloud-based image archiving 7 years ago, and upon that foundation we’ve built a powerful and complete solution that helps thousands of pro photographers attract business, do business, and keep business. 2013 will see the launch of the next generation of our portfolio websites, the public release of our new API, an emphasis on rolling UX optimization, and value-added third-party integrations. You will guide these efforts and drive the strategic planning and execution process behind new features, product extensions, and new products thereafter.
If you have a love for innovation and photography, and you’re savvy about product strategy, user experience, and the product development process, send us your resume today. If you’re eager to work in a really fast-paced, demanding atmosphere with a group of passionate and smart people who are also dedicated to growing the company to reach new milestones, we want to hear from you.
