Pond5 is hiring a

GM, Marketplace/Search

At Pond5, the Search experience begins the moment an artist submits content to our marketplace and continues through the buyer experience as we filter and share content with interested buyers.  We view Search as the foundation of our Product, and we are looking for the right person to lead Search and the marketplace experience to bring best-in-class solutions to life.

The enthusiastic, forward-looking individual who undertakes this challenge will set a vision for and execute our Search strategy and marketplace user experience, powering both the buyer and seller sides of our marketplace.   You’ll report directly to the Chief Executive Officer and will be exposed to 15MM files (the world’s largest collection of royalty free video and music clips), 3 petabytes of data created by 60K artists submitted from every country around the globe, and over 100K users interacting with our site every day.  

In this role you will grow, lead, and motivate a global team (as well as work closely with an Engineering team specialized in Search and with product resources embedded on the buyer and contributor sides of our marketplace) to build Search specifications and user requirements and see them through from conceptualization, prioritization, the development lifecycle, and execution.

This is an operational role, with responsibility for maximizing revenue on every query made on the marketplace.
