ITHAKA’s mission is to expand access to knowledge and education around the world. Our services—Artstor, JSTOR, Portico, and Ithaka S+R— enable people everywhere to learn, to grow, and to overcome historical barriers to education. In carrying out our mission, as employees we feel a deep responsibility to each other and our well-being, and are committed to building and sustaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
We are looking for an exceptional Senior Product Manager to join JSTOR’s Product team. You will lead a cross-functional agile team to deliver the next evolution of the JSTOR online research and teaching platform. As product manager and team leader, you will collaborate with stakeholders throughout the organization.
To succeed in this role, you must be a servant-leader with a systems-thinking, data-first mindset who is passionate about delighting users and solving their problems. You are proactive, strategy-minded, can define success metrics for a product, and conduct experiments to meet them. You are responsible for optimizing the product’s user experience, scalability, reliability, quality, security, maintainability, cost, and value to the customer while inspiring a culture of innovation among your team members.
You think in terms of the best interest for the entire JSTOR product, not just your area of responsibility. As such, you work in close collaboration with other Product Managers and team leads to realize the JSTOR unified product vision and strategy, gain alignment, and remove barriers to progress where necessary.
