Director of Product, Monetization

San Francisco, CA | Product & Design

Job Description

You are an expert product manager ready to create products and experiences that will be seen by millions the world over. We are a top 30 site that needs you to lead monetization strategies for our massive platform.

Like our fans and communities, Wikia is passionate, high-energy, and collaborative. Wikia is one of the largest Creative Commons-licensed sites in the world, as we maintain over 300,000 wikia communities across an impressive array of subjects, spanning all aspects of entertainment, games, and lifestyle. We are rated as a Quantcast Top 30, ComScore Top 100, and Nielsen Top 10 Social Media Site and are visited by over 100 million people a month. 

In close partnership with Sales and Marketing, you will be the product leader that drives monetization strategies across Wikia experiences and platforms, including desktop, mobile and video. All product efforts focused on advertising and monetization interests will be led by a deep understanding of market needs and revenue opportunities. You will be at the center of establishing a product vision and roadmap for revenue-generating Wika products including content and community sponsorships, endemic ad experiences, and IAB placement and inventory management. Monitoring and leading A/B experimentation will lead to unparalleled customer satisfaction with monetization experiences. 

You are a product leader with the ability to create and articulate a vision for monetization product efforts that look 12-24 months ahead.  You have spent over 5 years of your career managing consumer products, 3 years of which were focused on advertising or revenue-generating experiences. Suffice it to say, you have a deep understanding of the technology and service landscape needed to build, deploy, and manage consumer ad products. Familiarity with best practices in the area of consumer ad experiences is at the core of your knowledge. Your colleagues would describe you as highly quantitative and a pro at leading A/B testing and other optimization efforts.   Agile environments are where you thrive and you are hardwired to rely on data to make your decisions and optimize. 

Your impact will extend far beyond your own team to encompass our business as a media platform, consumer products and even technology. Our exciting fan platform is going to introduce great career challenges for you but is also coupled with a culture that emphasizes strong work life balance. For your expertise, we will offer a competitive salary, stock options, and full benefits. Our dog-friendly digs are located in San Francisco (between BART and CalTrain) and also come with a stocked pantry and gaming room, where some employees practice yoga at lunch. 

We’re a company in its heyday and were building products for one of the most interesting sites in the world.
