Position Description:

POSITION PURPOSE
Global Custom Commerce is looking for an Associate Product Manager who is ready to leap into unknown waters. The Associate Product Manager will assist in managing multiple projects, learn to implement agile methodologies in a development team, as well as help do the discovery necessary for launching new products. This individual will be comfortable diving deep into the details of multiple projects, while remaining flexible and responsive to frequent changes. Of course, similar to a start-up, the Associate Product Manager is ready and able to take on all sorts of small side projects, all in order to move the team towards their goal.

Why work here? Our entrepreneurial roots and maverick mentality, coupled with the resources and backing of the #1 home improvement retailer in the world, The Home Depot, is a unique opportunity for you to be a transformative retail disrupter. Plus, GCC is the world’s largest online window covering company, and we’ve got a demonstrably awesome 20-year track record. From our open-floor office to our open-door ethos, our culture is rooted in improving, evolving, and having fun (we’re pretty serious about cake, cook-offs, ping pong, meaningful work and exciting projects). Most importantly, our team members are always inspired, engaged, and ready for growth.

That means you’ll have the resources and the runway to create truly magical, out-of-the-box work. Moreover, you will play an important role in leveraging our culture, people, systems, processes, and technology — ultimately to provide incredible customer experiences, while growing business for GCC and The Home Depot. This is your chance to be part of something big, in a small start-up environment.
