About the Company

Salsify is a hyper-growth company in Boston with the mission to empower brand manufacturers (like Coke or LOreal) to deliver great digital product experiences. We power thousands of brands to master the digital shelf with Product Information Management (PIM), Syndication, and Insights. Salsify is one of Bostons fastest-growing companies by revenue and company size, having raised $98.1 million and won numerous workplace awards.

About the Product

Brand Manufacturers invest in content to merchandise their products and influence purchase behavior. Salsifys PXM platform provides a competitive advantage for brands that desire to control and distribute their product story across a growing number of online retailers. A widely used and loved component of the content experience is Salsifys Digital Catalogs.

We are redoubling our efforts to advance the application of Digital Catalogs by investing in Content as a Service (CaaS). CaaS is a specific approach for delivering content for digital experiences. You can think of CaaS as a Content Management System (CMS) that focuses on content delivery over APIs for creating/maintaining digital experiences.

Built on top of Salsifys PXM, CaaS will allow brands like LOreal, Mars, and Tyson to deliver the most up-to-date information for their sales teams, retail partners, and customers through digital catalogs, smartphone app or microsites.

About the Role

We are looking for a scrappy product manager to champion the vision, growth, and strategy for this product. The CaaS/Digital Catalogs role requires a leader that can drive successful outcomes, navigate changing requirements and relaunch a program with a larger Web Content Management (WCM) vision in mind. Solving this problem is challenging, but it starts with developing a deep understanding of the current value that catalogs delivers to our users, becoming a SME on web content management, and heavily investing in customer research.

The ideal candidate will bring a combination of vigorous entrepreneurial drive and an openness to building the strong partnerships required to successfully lead the program. This will involve actively supporting the go-to-market team with product enablement and marketing artifacts.

Successful execution of this role will involve leading a high impact program that can scale to the needs of our largest global brands, and seamlessly integrates a multi-threaded offering into Salsifys PXM portfolio.

Responsibilities:

  • Build deep relationships with key partners at Salsify; this is the foundation of all subsequent responsibilities.
  • Be the most knowledgeable person in the company about WCM trends, CaaS requirements and our existing digital catalogs experience.
  • Systematically extract insights, opportunities, and trends from customer feedback. Creating evidence-backed support for product vision.
  • Partner with engineering to continually align Digital Catalog/CaaS to Salsify growth goals.
  • Tight alignment with product adjacencies and the foresight to surface program requirements to other product team roadmaps.
  • Identify and address adoption issues in partnership with Customer Success.
  • Relentlessly support the go-to-market team by identifying and addressing sales productivity opportunities.
  • Communicate through clear, concise written communication that engages stakeholders and partners in key decisions.

Requirements:

No candidate will meet all requirements, but the ideal candidate will meet many of the below and excel in some:

  • 3-5 years product management experience, or directly relevant experience.
  • Incredible tenacity, passion and an innate sense of curiosity.
  • Deep product experience OR deep industry experience.
  • Able to build influence within an organization that is brimming with strong opinions and deep expertise.
  • Able to work cross-functionally to bring new products and capabilities to market.
  • Resilient in the face of conflict, changing business needs and structure, and failure; able to focus on the appropriate time horizon given the situation.
  • Highly organized and able to continually boil hundreds of customer/prospect conversations and thousands of internal conversations into clear direction.
  • Ability to develop strategy and engage stakeholders to participate in strategic decisions through exceptional oral and written communication.
  • Extremely strong interpersonal skills: must be sharp, energetic, assertive and results-oriented; able to prioritize and focus in a rapidly evolving environment.
  • Understanding of software development process and architectural tradeoffs.
  • Demonstrated ability to get and deeply understand user feedback and then broadcast that learning to the organization.

Rovaira Dasig
Product Management

Let's be honest. A lot of tech companies will jostle to be the most "this" or "that," when in reality, they appear to be quite similar. At Salsify, I get to be me - no pretense, no excuses, no hiding - and that's what I love most about working here. One of Salsify's core values is to be a company where everyone is empowered to build the company at which they want to work. And despite being here for only 6 weeks, I'm already making an impact on the work we do, the company we're building and the future we're hustling toward. They have literally built a development program for the new team that I joined, which will fast track my technical and professional skill set in ways that just doesn't really exist at most other startups. This level of investment and commitment Salsify has for its team is what draws people to our company.

Product Manager

I'm the kind of person that puts personal growth at the top of the list when it comes to finding a company to work for. From the moment I started at Salsify, I can honestly say that the leadership has had my best interest in mind. I have been to industry conferences, developed more technical skills, participated in department trainings and have been promoted since I started a little over 1 year ago. The culture is fun and positive and I legitimately love coming into work everyday to work with friends and for great leaders.

What can I say about Salsify other than... Thank you! These past months have been an amazing journey of professional and personal growth. This is a place where they celebrate you as a colleague, where working as a team really means working as a team!
Salsify's company culture is incredible and management actually cares about employees as human beings. You can literally walk up to anyone, even the founders, and have a conversation about anything. So glad I joined!

Stephannie Vargas
Project Manager

Why Salsify? What makes it different from other companies? 3 things. The culture, the people, and the new challenges. These are the three key factors that keep me excited and make me want to come in the office everyday. Being a part of Salsify for almost two years, I have had the honor of seeing Salsify grow from a small start-up to a larger employee community. My day to day consists of exposure to unique and challenging projects that I tackle with the help from peers, with such a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. As a recent grad, I never imagined my first job would incorporate such a rich culture that would not only give me the ability to do impactful work, but would allow me to do so at an early stage in my career. Sharing my passion for this company is an easy task, it almost seems silly to have to explain the logic for what I consider a perfect match and the best decision I ever made.
