Product Manager

Remote, based in U.S.


You’re the type to play out scenarios while commuting to work. What happens if we ship x before y? If this growth build leads to a z% increase on average order value, can we shelve our next automation build? While you bring a highly analytical approach, you also know when not to overthink and just act. Your colleagues rely on you to spell out implications, communicate the value of certain initiatives and build consensus across teams. The growth team depends on you to ship features that acquire and retain new members, while member experience and member success counts on your ability to push through experiences that delight our member base. 

Reporting to the Executive Vice President, you’ll drive the feature set of our custom-built eCommerce platform. You’ll be brought on to initially specialize on member-facing builds (acquisition and retention), as part of a versatile product team. This is a position at Wild Alaskan that’s fast-paced, challenging and fun.
