And you'll likely have the opportunity to travel to some of Mintel's global offices (Chicago, London, Singapore, Shanghai).

What you will be doing:

  • Experiment and measure: Think creatively about how we can improve our content experience for our users, rapidly testing your hypotheses before rolling out improvements to our global audience.
  • Data driven decisions: Gather and use data and insight to drive strategic decision-making and development of requirements for immediate and long-term content experience roadmaps.
  • Customer centric decisions: Work closely with our clients and internal teams to identify client needs and client satisfaction levels.

  • Delivery driven: Drive the day-to-day management of on-product content experience for Mintel’s products.  This includes ongoing prioritization of issues, change requests and new feature requests. Manage a strong working relationship with Content, Engineering and Design to ensure needs are met and deadlines are observed.
  • Visionary: Collaborate with the Global Product Team to develop and advance our product strategy, as a champion and thought leader for Mintel’s products.
  • Stakeholder communications and buy-in: Partner with the Engineering, UX, Sales, Marketing and Content teams to develop and deliver excellent communication plans for all product changes and improvements.

What we are looking for:

  • Excellent written and oral communication and listening skills
  • Proven experience and success with agile project management practices
  • Ability to present and facilitate meetings at top management level

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
