THE POSITION

Our roster has an opening with your name on it

We’re looking for a senior product manager to take charge of discovery, planning, strategy, execution, and analysis for new types of game formats, styles, and categories. We’re looking to create those winning moments and that thrill of competition FanDuel users love in new and interesting areas, keeping our current fans coming back for more and helping entirely new audiences discover what makes gaming with FanDuel so much fun. Some new games will align with the core sports our existing fantasy and sportsbooks cover, but we’re not stopping there – other new games may not be sports-related at all, but will share the competition and excitement that FanDuel audiences know and love.

Product Managers should be consumer-obsessed, always focusing on what will make our product experiences better and more fun. They should work closely with our research and analytics team to understand what our fans want, even before they know they want it. Product managers should keep a close eye on the competitive landscape ensuring FanDuel always stays one step ahead. They should draw inspiration from a wide variety of digital products and experiences.

While working with senior team members to develop effective product strategies, product managers also need to be highly focused on execution. They should understand how to work with their commercial, design, technical, and marketing counterparts to set clear goals and metrics for their products. Product managers will partner with engineers and other stakeholders to create requirements and plans around how they’ll solve problems together. They will work with their teams to drive effective processes for prioritization, construction, testing, launch, and post-launch measurement and iteration.

Product managers are leaders and impactful communicators, able to present ideas clearly, take feedback openly and confidently, and ultimately work with a wide variety of stakeholders to create the future of sports and entertainment.

THE GAME PLAN
Everyone on our team has a part to play

  • Drive ideation and prioritization for new initiatives and products, establishing a roadmap and strategy
  • Establish and maintain domain expertise on FanDuel’s current product, market, and competitors, as well as examining adjacent domains (mobile gaming, interactive content, etc.), considering their interest to FanDuel and/or any learnings we can take.
  • Develop an understanding of the levers that drive our business around both acquisition and retention
  • Partner with research teams to uncover consumer needs and wants
  • Use available data to inform product strategy and execution plans
  • Ensure transparency and alignment with FanDuel stakeholders, writing clear strategic documentation, presenting plans across the organization, and gathering feedback from key partners
  • Collaborate with engineering, design, marketing and operational leaders to solve user problems together as a team, ensuring successful product deliveries, launches, and iterations
  • Make effective prioritization and trade-off decisions within the team you work with, focusing on delivering as much value as possible
  • Identify, prioritize, and execute post-launch optimizations and improvements
  • Track and report objectively on product performance, recommending iterations or pivots as appropriate
  • Investigate issues from different sources, do root-cause analysis, identify systemic gaps, and ensure these gaps are addressed.

THE STATS

What we’re looking for in our next teammate

  • Minimum 4 years’ experience as a digital product manager or similar role required
  • Proven track record of delivering successful and innovative consumer-facing digital products that have driven high usage and repeat behavior
  • Experience with product discovery techniques, design thinking, and Agile development is highly desired
  • Ability to handle multiple simultaneous projects while effectively balancing scope, resourcing, time, and quality
  • A strong sense of ownership and accountability for goals and deliverables
  • Demonstrated success cross-functionally influencing teams without formal authority
  • Strong quantitative skills
  • Excellent critical thinking skills
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Interest in and knowledge of fantasy, peer to peer ecosystems, or mobile gaming experience highly desirable
