HomeAdvisor is seeking a highly analytical leader with strategy, product management or operations experience to join the Category Management team.  This is a unique opportunity to work on HomeAdvisor’s critical and highest growth revenue initiatives and to own the performance of an important part of our overall business – from early testing through to build and scale.  You will be responsible for driving strategy to maximize category revenue and health, setting and managing executional priorities, and leading critical cross-company efforts.  This role reports to the General Manager of Category Management.

In this role, you will devise strategy, build frameworks, structure solutions, and drive and measure results in the most critical areas of the business, while developing as a future leader of the organization.  You will work cross-functionally across departments, including product, marketing, sales, operations, and others to improve our customer and pro experience.

  • Managing current operations and seeding longer-term strategies. You will manage current cross-functional operational priorities that are critical to category health and performance, while leading a portfolio of new initiatives to test into and accelerate our long-term growth.
  • Analyzing and measuring impact. Test hypotheses quickly! Conduct data analysis, market research, and user research to identify opportunities. You’ll constantly be looking at (and improving) the metrics.
  • Collaborating with internal and external teams. You will have to work closely with people in product, marketing, sales, and operations, as well as teams at our sister brands, to succeed.

  • 10+ years of professional experience with evidence of increasing responsibility in a Product- or e-Commerce Marketing-adjacent business role
  • Prior experience as a business owner of a new initiative in a product-driven tech or eCommerce company, with a track record from launch to scale
