RAPP Chicago is looking for an Associate Product Manager to join our award-winning team.

WHO WE ARE:

We think too much marketing isn’t us. It’s mass markets, not audiences of one. Homogenous groups to be targeted, not individuals to be inspired. Segments to reach, not people with their own ideas and ambitions. It’s one size fits all, and it’s dull.

When it comes to individuals, we’re fierce. We stand up for individuality. We speak up against bland, broad-brush generalizations. We fight for solutions that adapt to the individual’s needs, beliefs, behaviors, and aspirations. And we commit to doing this in every aspect of our work for clients and their consumers.

We actively foster an inclusive workplace where diversity and individual difference are valued and leveraged to achieve the agency’s vision. And most importantly, we value every individual’s wellbeing.

We are Fiercely Individual.

 

HOW WE DO IT:

At RAPP, we are fiercely focused on the individual and how we can create value from every individual’s experience with a brand. We do this across three capability areas: customer-centric consulting, creativity that inspires action and customer experience management.

Our data analysts know who that person is. Our strategists understand what is needed. And our award-winning technologists and creatives know how to get it to them.

RAPP is an integral part of Omnicom’s Precision Marketing Group, comprising 4,000 creatives, technologists, strategists, and data and marketing scientists across 40 global markets.

 

YOUR ROLE:

As an Associate Product Manager & Business Analyst you are part of the Product Management team which is responsible for the roadmap and vision for our enterprise marketing platform. You will partner across multiple disciplines to define use cases, requirements and to assist technical teams in building the right products for our clients.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Partner with Product Managers to gather business requirements, collect data and research, conduct analysis, coordinate with stakeholders, and define product roadmaps
  • Define and document use cases and requirements for a defined set of products

  • Provide documentation for all completed and in-progress work for both internal and external facing projects

  • Partner with the Product Engineering team to ensure products are built to the right specifications and bridge development between Engineering & Marketing Sciences teams
  • Work with Quality Engineering teams to inform the right testing
  • Work effectively with both technical and non-technical team members
  • Be accountable for the successful completion of all aspects of assigned project work
  • Exercise independent judgment, and take the lead role on enterprise level projects with minimal direction

 

REQUIRED SKILLS:

  • 2-5 years of experience as a business analyst or in product management. Experience in digital marketing, CRM, or technical writing a plus.
  • Bachelor’s degree.
  • Experience with data environment solutions, design & architecture concepts
  • Experience using SQL to explore data

  • Able to thrive independently given direction and objectives.

What Makes you Fiercely Individual?

At RAPP, we celebrate and honor the fierce individuality of all our people. That’s why we’re working hard to ensure that our RAPP community is as representative and equitable as possible. Part of that work includes understanding who expresses interest in our open roles, who then joins our agency, and who ultimately stays with us. Your responses to the below questions are entirely voluntary, but will greatly support us gaining a better understanding of that employee journey. Below our set of questions, you'll see additional, government-mandated questions that are similar in nature, but less robust. We apologize for the duplication, but feel that it's important to get a more holistic picture of what makes you, you - and the legally-required questions don't help us achieve that. 

 

Which of the following best represents you? (Select one)









Please select the gender identity which applies to you.











Pronouns







Are you Transgender (Select one)



Which of these best describes your sexual orientation? Please select one. (Select one)








Are you a person with a disability? A person with a disability is one who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities (e.g. work); such as bipolar disorder, cancer, blindness, and cerebral palsy. (Select one)




Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in RAPP’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.


Form CC-305

OMB Control Number 1250-0005

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
