Job Summary

Imagine a company with millions of the most satisfied customers on the planet, that has been delighting those customers for decades, and that has consistently pushed the boundaries of technology, entertainment, education, and self-improvement. Now add to that a company culture that not only puts the customer at the center of every decision and action, but that also strives to elevate those customers, enriching their lives in every imaginable way. Your role is to expand the reach of those myriad benefits to additional millions in new ways and in new places, to amplify that success to new levels.

The Product Manager for International & New Business will work in a highly collaborative team that’s all about bringing our award-winning service to a wider audience, by imagining new capabilities and service innovations, experimenting and iterating quickly, and quickly delivering to customers.

You will be finding ways to bring the power of the spoken word to people who need it most and whose lives can be completely changed by what you deliver. You’ll be working hand-in-hand with mission-driven business leaders to consider how to improve the Audible experience in existing overseas marketplaces as well as how to bring Audible into new ones where people want to engage their minds through the medium of the spoken word. You’ll focus relentlessly on customer, working with user experience designers, to craft product capabilities that you’ll help marketers and software engineers to build.

You’re an accountable, hands on problem-solver with a positive attitude, letting nothing stand in the way. You know how to clarify the path forward and prioritize work. You know how to influence others.

You’re a natural collaborator equally comfortable talking tech with developers, user experience with designers, copy and positioning with product marketers, numbers with finance and marketing, and strategy with executive leadership. You pay attention to people, connect with them, and know how to achieve great things together.
