For a better working life

Senior Product Manager (f/m) Freemium / Premium

For years XING has been one of the leading companies in building user-oriented digital products thanks to an organisation that embraces agile methods in and beyond the cross-functional product development teams. With our strong group of over 50 product people - with a variety of specialisations and a keen interest in collaborating and learning from one another - we actively work to grow our product culture.

Thanks to our internal learning mindset, a variety of training courses, exchange with external partners as well as national and international experts, we pursue our vision: For a better working life.

The Premium Services team consists of around 150 people all working to support our Premium customers and their daily (working) lives. The product teams work together with the Business Development department to develop and realize new ideas for our Premium membership. Our constantly growing Premium Services business unit also deals with advertising and new B2C business models by implementing agile methods.

A challenging task:

  • Be part of defining the future of the leading professional social networking in German-speaking countries.
  • Take responsibility for a new premium product & membership
  • You will work together with an interdisciplinary team of Engineers, Designers, QA Managers and agile Project Managers.
  • Drive and execute initiatives to grow XING’s premium member base through product optimization and improved conversion rates in web/mobile channels.
  • With your team, drive and execute the product strategy, determine requirements, create product concepts and validate them through prototyping, user feedback and A/B testing.
  • Collaborate with your key stakeholder (Engineering, Marketing, Business Owner) to define, prioritize and execute a roadmap, specifically designed to increase the premium member base.
  • Together with your „wingman“, the Business Owner, manage the product KPI and analyze product performance over time to increase premium member growth and satisfaction.
  • Collaborate and sync with your stakeholders outside your own Business Unit and make sure, your product is in line with the defined company strategy.

A convincing background:

  • A startup-mindset (not necessarily a startup person), you made a lot mistakes in the past you learned from.
  • Desire to build outstanding products that customers love, have a broad understanding of freemium-business models
  • Highly analytical, a strong product sense and enthusiasm for data-informed decision making
  • Proven track record of A/B or multivariate testing
  • Utilize qualitative- and quantitative data to understand for user needs and behavior.
  • A good understanding of eCommerce dynamics and success drivers
  • Knowledge of the User Centered Design processes to ensure highly qualitative outcomes
  • A sound understanding of software development and a good technical understanding to communicate with engineers
  • Extensive professional experience as a Product Manager
  • Be keen to work with best-practice agile development methods - prior experience in this space is definitely a plus
  • Sound communication skills coupled with an excellent command of English and preferably German - note: XING is a multi-cultural environment and English is the official communication language.
