Sports Product Manager

Axiom Zen HQ (Vancouver)

Axiom Zen is a venture design studio. We collaborate with Fortune 500 partners to turn ideas into companies. We catalyze corporate innovation, leveraging our proven team and process to accelerate success. Our speciality is leveraging the latest in emerging technology to create high growth businesses and delightful experiences for millions of users.

Our next project is one of our most exciting: we're launching a well-funded international sports media property that will be experienced by millions. If you want to be a founding member of the team, read on!

As Axiom Zen’s Sports Product Manager, you will lead our team in building a revolutionary digital sports product. For a product manager who is passionate about the intersection of sports and cutting-edge technology, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Think of it as launching a startup with a stellar team, committed funding, and an exceptional advisor network already in place.

Working directly with our founders and senior team members on the front-lines of our business, you will be expected to think big and welcome feedback, while following through with exceptional attention-to-detail. You will also be responsible for building relationships with international sports federations and international leading brands. You will leverage our world-class team to build an explosive new business centered around a new, noteworthy digital sports product.

From the perspective of our partners, our Sports Product Manager will be considered the expert in all things startup, technology, and design. You will be expected to manage VIP relationships, confidently guide brainstorms on complex concepts, bring focus to vague visions, and quickly map user problems to specific software solutions. You may travel to San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, or internationally — whatever it takes to build relationships and close deals.

Challenges that come with innovation must excite you. You will shepherd this project from inception through MVP, market validation, and the subsequent acceleration of growth, working closely with your colleagues to ensure seamless execution.

 

As our Sports Product Manager, you have:

  • 5+ years of relevant industry experience, including coordinating and leading teams
  • A strong enthusiasm for technology and technology products, with a proclivity to geek out over the newest innovations
  • A passion for sports and sport fandom (especially multiple sports)
  • A native understanding of critical business factors that determine the success of web and mobile products
  • Experience writing for marketing purposes
  • Stellar communication skills

 

Bonus Points

  • Deep expertise in consulting, sales, and business development
  • Experience building sports products
  • Public speaking and thought leadership experience (we’d love to see your work!)

 

Get excited to come to work! We have:

  • World-class designers: Our designers built Aeronaut, featured by Apple in 35 countries, and honoree winner for best visual design in the 2017 Webby Awards.
  • An engineering dream team: We thrive on solving user problems with industry-leading tools and techniques (some of which we’ve built ourselves!). Our developers hail from startups and corporate leaders like Google, Apple, Baidu, and Microsoft.
  • Cutting-edge technology: We use state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to build our own semantic analysis technology that helped the Timeline team put news in context.

 

The icing on the cake

We want Axioms to be happy and thriving. We offer a competitive salary, unlimited vacation, holistic initiatives, active speakers budget… and more!
