Quartz seeks a product manager based in New York to focus on emails and Atlas.
Email is a big priority for us: Readers of the Quartz Daily Brief are our most engaged and loyal users, many of whom have been with us from the beginning. We now have four other emails, with more on the way, and ambitious goals for growing them.
Atlas is our innovative data visualization platform, which anyone in the world can use to make a chart and share it with others. We make most of our own charts with Atlas and extend that capability to individuals and organizations as varied as Foreign Affairs, TED, and the British parliament. Our aim is to grow Atlas into a vibrant open platform for charts and data.
As a product manager at Quartz, your chief responsibilities are to see the entirety of your products, from their nitty-gritty details to their future potential, and to ensure a coherence among them. You speak for the reader, support your colleagues, and create conditions for everyone to do their best work. More specific roles include:
Product lives within the Quartz newsroom and includes engineering, design, product science, and product management. Our product managers divide up responsibility among our various products. You would be in charge of all of our emails and Atlas.
There are two profiles of the ideal candidate for this role, and we would happily accept applications from either. One is someone with extensive experience as a product manager in any field and a passion for news. The other is a journalist, developer, or designer who has helped develop news products in some capacity, whether it was officially called product management or not. In either case, we are looking for someone who is both creative and organized, opinionated and kind, visionary and detail-oriented. Above all, you are an advocate for great work. Experience with email products is a plus, but not required.
To apply, please submit a résumé and a cover letter that describes one product that you have worked on: the vision, challenges, progress, and so on.
