They work with the group leader to create the execution strategy for the group that aligns with WordPress.com's vision. They help identify what projects are necessary to achieve these goals and identify the metrics to prove these projects/initiatives are successful. They will help coordinate a clear vision that intertwines initiatives across teams so every member feels empowered and understands the “why” behind the features we’re building. We need a strategic leader to see this through with the necessary expertise to execute efficiently at scale.

  • Creating project outlines, phasing out your delivery, and writing user stories where necessary.

  • Implement and manage changes accordingly, ensuring project goals are achieved or issues are unblocked. 

  • Develop operating metrics to enable teams to ship and test effectively and efficiently. 

  • Coordinate and execute on all communication, from feature launches to change documentation.

  • Work across languages to provide code reviews, and/or development with core JavaScript language, HTML5, and CSS3.

  • Develop well-structured web applications using modern JavaScript tools like React and Redux.ion, program changes etc.  

Requirements:

  • Meaningful experience in a relevant role with responsibility for building relationships with developers, partners, or with launching products.

  • Working knowledge of web technologies, and familiarity with web content management platforms/website builders, SaaS, and open source.

  • A clear understanding of business fundamentals and a familiarity in working with product data and business metrics.

  • Experience working cross-functionally with a wide range of teams. 

  • You are an excellent communicator (written and verbal), detail-oriented, very well structured, with a passion for creating processes. You are highly self-­motivated and able to work with significant autonomy.

  • Experience in working in a remote environment is a plus.

  • Experience leading small teams is a plus.
