About The Company

SHIFT.com connects marketers across and within organizations to help them work together more efficiently. Third-party developers can leverage the SHIFT platform APIs to integrate their own applications and allow people to work more effectively by making their applications more collaborative.

SHIFT also works closely with Facebook, Twitter and other social networks to provide collaborative social marketing software.  These media management tools are focused on workflow and allowing people to coordinate the creation of massive marketing campaigns in real-time by utilizing the SHIFT platform.

About The Dev Team

Our goal is to put out the highest quality, most stable product possible. We understand that developer time is a non-elastic resource, and that quality can’t be faked. Our development team is small enough for you to make a substantial impact on the product, but code quality, maintainability, and developer sanity are taken very seriously. You won’t be grinding 12+ hours a day hacking together an app as quickly as possible and piling up technical debt in the process.

  • Use a combination of analytical data, internal/external feedback and gut feeling to plan out future iterations of the software.
  • Organize and update the product roadmap which is visible to the company internally.
  • Staying apprised of partner capabilities and new technology

 

You have:

  • 3+ years experience as a product owner on large web applications
  • Great at communicating with developers and clients
  • Attention to detail and ability to communicate complex ideas
  • Knowledge of project management techniques and technology
  • A strong desire to keep learning.
  • A commitment to quality and making sure features get built correctly and on time.
