ShopTV is a “game changing” product, and our ecosystem of partners and platforms are unrivaled. Combining the power of our entertainment partners and our breakthrough Television Commerce Platform will propel this Marketplace to the forefront of the industry. Since launch, The ShopTV Marketplace has been bringing our customers and partners together quickly and efficiently. We began with our world-class ecommerce platform on the web, eventually extending it to Mobile and Social. With our breakthrough technology we now offer the ability to purchase products directly through televisions.
Our ideal candidate is someone equally creative and technical with an entrepreneurial drive and spirit. The tasks at hand require driving the product strategy and roadmap of our ShopTV Marketplace business, across our developers, through our platform partners, and our 3rd party APIs. This role is all about improving the vision and experience of the ShopTV Marketplace, and growing the Marketplace with new partners and features efficiently by selling them through our Marketplace. You'll have strong technology product management skills. You'll define the roadmaps by evaluating market opportunities, analyzing our customer and Marketplace needs, studying industry trends, and thinking long and hard about the marketing intersection of e-commerce and technical platforms. You'll relentlessly optimize the Marketplace sales funnels, reduce customer friction throughout the process, test and re-test the marketing distribution engine you help to create. Ideally you're a big thinker. You'll probably have strong analytical skills and a detail-oriented prioritization approach. This role offers a key membership to the Delivery Agent Product Management team.

Assimilate feedback from customers, developers and the competitive landscape and translate it at a strategic level for incorporation into future product releases.
Work with Marketing and other cross-functional teams to help define product roll-out plans, and deliver on key content input to emphasize value propositions and differentiation.
Monitor and analyze competing products and perform feature/functionality analysis and benchmarking; monitor and analyze the developer ecosystem to gauge its health and vitality.
What You've done:
Motivated, self-starter. Enthusiastic. Creative. Pragmatic. Analytical.

Demonstrate good attention to detail and results oriented; demonstrate track record of proactively establishing and following through on commitments.
Strong blend of business acumen, technical knowledge, and strategic perspective; self-driven and strong commitment to driving results.
Ability to drive cross-functional collaboration and build consensus independently without clear direction from above.
