What You will Do:

As the Principal Design System Product Owner, you will lead the growth and adoption of that system as it expands in scope and progresses towards maturity. PDS is at an inflection point in its maturity, and you will play a critical role in shepherding it through an expansion in the applications, sites, and experiences it supports while maintaining its commitment to quality and responsiveness.

You will:
  • Shepherd PDS through its public launch, focusing on sharing its benefits and educating new users to drive adoption
  • Collaborate with system users and business stakeholders to understand their additional needs, prioritize accordingly, and engage in active communication with internal stakeholders to ensure we're adapting and iterating at an appropriate pace.
  • Develop the plan to sunset outdated technology stacks that PDS replaces and set our organization up for long term success.
  • Drive product vision, strategies, and roadmaps in the context of broader organizational strategies and goals.
  • Be outcome oriented. Focus on the big picture of improving the system each time you respond to a problem, rather than just resolving the specific issue.
  • Partner across the enterprise with Engineering, Design, Content, Marketers, and other Product teams to deeply understand the problem space and to prioritize opportunities.
  • Manage competing priorities with consistency and transparency.
  • Collect feedback to improve your product. Establish and maintain metrics for product performance that align to business goals and customer outcomes.
  • Challenge status quo, encourage innovation, be open-minded and approachable. Make small bets and embrace experimentation.
  • Influence and motivate a team of engineers and other cross-functional representatives and maintain team health.
  • Empower teams to own solutions being created versus telling them what needs to be done and how it should work.

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience required
  • 8+ years of business or product management experience
  • Experience developing and maturing a product, and creating a product strategy
  • Experience partnering with technology teams and supporting technology products through an agile environment
  • High level technical understanding
  • Excellent communication skills including the ability to influence and negotiate with stakeholders at all levels of the company
  • Strong strategic thinking/vision and decision-making skills including business savvy and relationship management
  • Understanding of users, marketplace, competition, trends
  • Superlative collaboration mindset - this is a highly cross-functional role
  • Do-what-it-takes attitude; we work to find answers and bias towards action
