The mission of The New York Times is to seek the truth and help people understand the world. This mission is rooted in our belief that great journalism has the power to make each reader’s life richer and more fulfilling, and all of society stronger and more just.
Our Engagement group supports that mission by building products that make that journalism more compelling. We’ve made subscriptions the core of our business, and we believe that a better product experience will lead more users to engage with our journalism, to want to come back again and form a regular habit with The Times, and become subscribers.
The Personalization initiative aims to deliver a differentiated experience for our users that reflects a deep understanding of their habits and needs in different moments. We are looking for a Product Director to lead this effort, fundamentally transforming the way our readers experience the Times.
Building out our capabilities to support an end-to-end, algorithmically programmed experience will require you to work with and coordinate teams across the organization, from the newsroom to data science to delivery engineering, driving directional consensus and roadmap alignment. You'll develop a long-term product strategy for personalization based on our emergent relationship metrics and user journeys, balancing that ambition with the nuts and bolts of getting product work out the door. You’ll work closely with our data science team to leverage insights into product development, and with the newsroom on creating a robust set of tools for algorithmic programming oversight, reporting and insight.
We're looking for a product leader who believes in our mission, and is excited about creating digital product experiences that reflect the same level of excellence as our journalism.
What you’ll do:
As the product leader of the Personalization initiative, you’ll lead the strategy for and development of personalized features, experiences, tools and services to ensure readers and internal users have a positive experience with our products.
Who should apply:
We’re looking for someone who has demonstrated product development skills, from writing technical specifications to performing opportunity sizing. You should have a record of managing other team members, communicating both horizontally and vertically, and working with engineers, designers, data scientists and analysts.
The New York Times is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce, one that reflects the varied global community we serve. Our journalism and the products we build in the service of that journalism greatly benefit from a range of perspectives, which can only come from diversity of all types, across our ranks, at all levels of the organization. Achieving true diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do. It is also the smart thing for our business. So we strongly encourage women, veterans, people with disabilities, people of color and gender nonconforming candidates to apply.
