The Job

As a member of the world-class CNN Politics digital products team, the Senior Staff Product Manager is an experienced product lead who collaborates with designers, developers, researchers, content strategists, product marketers and product analysts to build and grow CNN Politics product experiences.

You will help us drive our business objective of deepening relationships with our users, and growing engagement and retention.

You will learn about the habits of our users and identify problems worth solving. You will create a strategy based on user and market research, test prototypes, ship accessible, consumer-focused product experiences across platforms, measure results and iterate accordingly.

You will identify value propositions by exploring the role politics plays in users' lives during and beyond elections, and building experiences that help users map the vital issues of the day to their kitchen table.
