Anki is hiring a

Product Manager, eCommerce

San Francisco, United States

It’s possibly the single most in-demand skill in the tech industry: the ability to turn data into dollars. It sounds like alchemy, but it’s exactly what you do.  And it’s exactly what we need.

At Anki, We glean oceans of valuable info from our web presences and current trends, and we need someone on the line to dive in. Someone who innately understands our marketing initiatives and goals and knows the right questions to ask the right people. If you can take in our marketing initiatives and goals, and offer analysis and insights that help us meet them, we’ll listen. You’ll effect lasting change in our e-commerce strategy in general and our website portal in particular.

So what’s stopping you from taking your in-demand skills to practically any other commerce company in the industry? Nothing. Except that most of them will bore the pants off you. A company with a new idea, however, that’s something else. Say, a gaming company that might just be the future of entertainment. Because of robots. 

At Anki, our games feature actual AI-driven robots that you can hold in your hand and race across your coffee table. It’s a combination of virtual and real-world gaming that folks like CNET and Apple’s Tim Cook believe is the next big thing. And who are we to argue? We have plenty of sales channels for them, and we’d like you to focus on the most important one: Anki.com. You’ll have the freedom to interpret data, and act on it to improve and increase online conversion.

If you’re a self-starting, hands-on, pro-active team member-type, you fit the description. And if you like the idea of working somewhere future-forward where you can make a genuine difference, we fit yours.

Because we can build the best robots in the industry, but we sorta need to sell them, too. If you can get results, we’ll give you that chance. Visit the Anki website and find us onFacebook andYouTube to learn more, and get in touch.

If Anki were stranded on a desert island, you’d be:Collecting weather and tidal patterns and pairing them with shipping lane data to find the optimal times for rescue.

If Anki were a carnival, you’d be:The person behind the scenes making sure the games provide just enough entertainment value to keep people paying $5 to throw tiny plastic rings at rubber ducks. 

If Anki was “The Devil Wears Prada,” you’d be: Whoever it is that keeps that magazine in business. 300 pages of glossy ads for $10? Talk about a fantasy.
