The Role:

We are seeking a commercially strategic product leader to evolve our world-renowned email testing apps to an enterprise class email creative platform.

Through data-driven research and analytics, you will help build the framework for existing and future product development, owning the entire product life cycle from conception to launch and adoption.

A business visionary with an insatiable curiosity, you also know how to get work done in a fast-paced, engineering team. Above all, you understand the importance of working as a collaborative, cross-functional group to deliver the right product to the right market in a time sensitive and efficient manner.  

You will work directly with the CTO while interfacing extensively with our customer-facing and engineering teams. You will continue to build out and lead a high performing product management team and be comfortable managing across disciplines, offices, and locations. Your extensive experience includes years of leadership, developing and executing a vision for products that clearly met and exceeded their business goals.

  • Ensure the product team builds great products through a combination of product design & insight, problem solving and analytical skills, and operational leadership

  • Coordinate pricing, positioning, go-to-market, and partner-product initiatives
  • Foster a culture of deep customer empathy in our engineering teams
  • Be a public facing advocate for Litmus

This could be a great role for you if:

  • You operate with a sense of urgency; start-up/high growth environments energize and motivate you.
  • You take a down-to-earth and practical approach to Product Management, adding just the right amount of structure, while still remaining flexible and accommodating different product management approaches.
  • You are accustomed to advocating for your work; articulate and support your position while being open to feedback and alternative solutions.
  • You thrive in a role in which you apply the strategy to tactical work; you are hands on while grasping the big picture and you are comfortable working with senior engineers to make large-scale technology decisions.
  • Your experience includes SaaS product management roles with a multi-year proven track record of economically successful outcomes.
  • You are collaborative and adaptive.
  • You’ll embrace the Litmus culture, its business and reputation.

Why should I choose Litmus?

We offer everything you'd expect from a financially successful and profitable growth company, and we've been going strong for ten years.

  • Great salary and stock options, comprehensive health care benefits, and a generous retirement plan match
  • 28 days of paid vacation - that’s on top of team retreats, public holidays, and a week-long holiday break in December
  • Remote-friendly culture. While this role has a preference for Boston or San Francisco/ Bay Area as a team location, feel free to work from home when you want to. No matter where you are, you'll feel connected to the team. Your work experience is just as exciting, entertaining, and engaging wherever you choose to work from.
  • Family friendly. Flexible schedules along with generous maternity and paternity policies
  • The best tools and technology money can buy. Top of the line hardware, software, and whatever else you need to be awesome
