Are you passionate about customer experience and interaction design? Are you technical enough that you want to understand “how it really works” in order to explain it to others, and super organized so that you can design a long-term product roadmap to support the company’s business goals?
We are looking for a Product Manager to join our Product & Design team. You will work cross-functionally with designers and engineers to build solutions that can be leveraged across a broad range of enterprise-sized customers who use our digital ordering platform. You will have a critical role in helping to prioritize the product backlog. If you thrive in a culture of ownership and innovation then this role is for you.
What You’ll Be Doing
- Contribute to ongoing definition, prioritization and planning of the Olo product roadmap, incorporating product innovations, client feedback, and internal requests.
- Create detailed product specifications and/or UX mock-ups, in conjunction with our UX Design team, and the engineering team when kicking off new feature projects.
- Develop and maintain a deep understanding of the product, ensuring that product updates achieve desired goals.
- Work closely with Olo technology partners and affiliates to ensure effective collaboration.
- Define KPIs for new products and features, which would include A/B testing, and the incorporation of results into product roadmap
- Document new features to share with clients and customers
- Work closely with our Customer Success Team and our Sales Team to deeply understand the problems and pain points that our existing clients and prospects face with digital ordering.
- Consult on solutions for our clients and prospects, which includes Olo’s existing products and features in addition to investigating and scoping new feature requests.
- Conduct frequent client outreach initiatives to identify system innovations that would solve operational problems for restaurants.
- Conduct competitive research in the product space to inform the product roadmap.
- Work closely with the Sales team to create product-sales collateral (demos, documentation).
