Our Ways of Working

We have team members located across the United States spanning multiple time zones. This means we put in extra effort to make sure we connect and collaborate in ways that make sense for us. We know how valuable the flexibility of remote work is for our employees. 

We know that personal connection is the foundation for the great work we do together. In order to build those relationships with team members in other cities, we meet with coworkers in person two times a year at a full company offsite and a departmental offsite. These offsites are expected of employees and are great opportunities to meet the people you work with every day and to do some of the work that is much more difficult to do virtually.

What the Role Is

As the Senior Technical Product Manager,Marketing Platforms at Babylist, you will help define the tools and experiences needed to help Babylist users discover the right product (or service) at the right time. This role will interact with leaders from across the company, including: product, tech, analytics, design, marketing, and merchandising (and frequent c-level updates). This means you will need to develop a strategy, timeline, and mechanisms to ensure that we have robust (data driven) debates, make the right calls, and remain transparent with on time delivery for our users.

Millions of expecting parents choose Babylist to help them plan for their growing families. They turn to us for content, discovery, registry building, gift management, personal health, and much more. Your role will be to define and implement a technology platform that helps our teams reach these growing families at the right time and place. This will include updating our existing platforms like our Content Management System and our Home Feed, working with new platforms like Message Center, SMS, and A/B platform, and helping define and build new capabilities to manage customer messaging at scale. These new capabilities could include user segmentation and targeting, content optimization, multi-armed bandits, and ideas that you bring to the table.

Who You Are

  • You have a proven track record as a world class Technical Product leader. You can speak in detail to examples of insightful strategy development, execution and delivery, and strong consumer advocacy
  • Your development background shows a deep understanding of building complicated platforms and providing insight via data and best practices
  • You have a strong background in tech and customer-centric product development. You have worked with multiple stakeholders and side-by-side with design and engineering
  • You believe in building on a foundation of data and analytics. You have a strong spidey-sense for when something may be off and can go multiple levels deep into the data (or elsewhere) to find the root cause. You fix issues in a durable and visible way
  • You bring clarity to ambiguity. You naturally create mental models and share these more broadly to achieve alignment (or learn where the model breaks). You have examples of choosing to simplify problem areas in order to move teams forward
  • You have experience with multiple company wide platforms. These could include CMS, SMS, A/B testing, or home-grown solutions. You can speak to best practices and anti-patterns for scale

How You Will Make An Impact

  • You deeply understand Babylist teams and the different ways in which they use tools. You have a strong qualitative and quantitative understanding of what works well enough and where we can create ROI. You apply this understanding in your communications and choices to create insights and drive alignment with our platform decisions.
  • You will develop the Media Platform Strategy and create the ongoing mechanisms (e.g., goals, MBRs, KPIs) to ensure a high performing, and transparent development process.
  • You will be a strong partner with Design and Engineering leadership. You have deep conversations speaking in technical or design terms. You build credibility by recommending high-bar ways forward when teams are stuck.
  • You will think big and act small when needed. This means having a clear long-term vision while delivering value each cycle. You don’t let teams get hung up or overinvest in the pursuit of a false sense of perfection

An Insider's view of Babylist

What are some social events your company does?

We stay connected to each other through Slack, virtual events, or meeting up in person. It is essential as a remote company that we are intentional about seeing each other in person and use that time to build strong relationships. We have an annual company off-site and department off-sites that focus on connecting with each other as whole humans.

Becky Lehman

Senior Manager, Employee Engagement

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Ensuring inbound supply chain processes can match our growth. The biggest problem we face is ensuring our processes and systems can grow with us. To enable sustainable solutions to this we focus on four key themes: Be extremely good at the basics, automation of manual tasks, continuous improvement, and creating actionable dashboards and reports.

Josh Woods

Director, Inbound Operations

What are some things you learned at the company?

Effective asynchronous communication is the key to working remotely. Being able to provide generous, carefully-considered updates with just enough detail to ensure your reader understands your reasoning is a powerful skill that I see on display every day.

Andy Aragon

Sr. Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Our implementation teams have full responsibility for delivering their projects. We provide them with a well-defined problem statement and a workable solution outline. Then, it’s up to the team to work out the details of the project, set tasks, adjust the scope, and get creative to deliver in a fixed period of time.

TJ Moretto

VP of Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m excited to integrate our partner brands into the metaverse with the launch of Babylist Land, a virtual registry and gifting experience. Gen Z and Millenial parents want to buy in virtual environments, and Babylist Land will integrate our brand partners in this experience to drive high engagement and ultimately, registry additions and sales.
