Peloton is seeking a Product Design Ops Program Manager to help optimize the efficiency and output of our Product Design team processes and resources. This role will report to the Director of Product Design Ops.

This role sits on the Engagement Software Product Design team. This team is responsible for the design of our member-facing software experiences – including but not limited to the software on the Peloton Bike, the Peloton Tread, and Peloton Digital.

This role works collaboratively with Product Managers, UI Designers, UX Designers, User Researchers, Product Analysts, Engineers, and TPMs to understand, plan, track, and deliver user facing products and experiences. 

The Product Design Program Manager has an understanding of the goings-on for all the in-flight and upcoming Product Design projects in their purview – and is able to provide valuable information back to the team, optimize the path towards completing projects, and call out any issues or risks to efficient and effective project completion.

  • Take the lead on ensuring projects move forward seamlessly and efficiently by coordinating (and often attending) Product Design and User Research reviews and check-ins. 
  • Identify and remove blockers to enable Product Designers and User Researchers to work productively toward project goals. 
  • Track progress throughout the duration of a project (from definition to launch and beyond) with a mindfulness toward dependencies, and facilitate effective communication within and across teams.
  • Maintain documentation and dashboards that allow for quick and efficient understanding of resource capacity and project status.
  • Facilitate design sprint planning and standups, and understand the status of active projects across the Product Design and User Research team. Report on project status regularly to your manager, and broadly across the Product organization.
  • Attend weekly syncs organized by TPMs to share design project statuses and stay informed about engineering timelines. 
  • Work with designers to understand design debt priorities and design initiatives and assist with scheduling this work into sprint plans.
  • Coordinate effective collaboration protocols between Product Design and the Marketing Creative team. 
  • Facilitate retrospectives for the Product Design team to build teamwork, identify pain points, and support the ongoing improvement of team processes.
