Schibsted Product & Tech is hiring a Product Manager to the Editorial Services team. This is a new role in the team, and it is created to transition the team from focusing on delivery and operations to unleash the power of a true product mindset. As a Product Manager in Editorial Services, you will be part of a team of about 15 Products Managers.

Shared Products & Platforms operate “Core News Product'' (CNP). CNP is Schibsted’s suite of news production tools, and is used by Schibsted’s news brands such as Aftonbladet, Svenska Dagbladet, VG, Aftenposten, Bergens Tidende and Stavanger Aftenblad. The suite includes products for writing articles, discovering news stories, publishing video and podcasts, automating front pages, live coverage and managing comments, in addition to user facing platforms such as web pages and apps.

Over the last years, the editorial systems used for the printed newspapers have been handled separately from the production of online news. As the decline of print circulation has leveled off, we want to change this. We see huge potential in optimizing the editorial processes and tools in a more holistic way that we have been. In addition to developing an increasingly efficient workflow, important elements in the work can for example be image processing, planning tools, use of graphic elements across platforms and so on.

So if you are up for the challenge of bringing modern product development philosophy into the production of a classic news product, then this is the role for you. Joining a team of great product managers, we will revolutionize how we create news across all platforms.

Your responsibilities include

  • Defining a roadmap, balancing user needs, business and editorial requirements as well as technical considerations
  • Engaging with stakeholders on a regular basis - gathering input, communicating progress, setting expectations
  • Formulating Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) and achieving these
  • Applying and developing agile product management practices to achieve the team’s objectives
    • Working with the team on a day-to-day basis
      Translating the roadmap into a concrete backlog and maintaining it
    • Driving and facilitating planning and execution
    • Looking after the well-being of the team
  • Contributing to the larger SPP & News Media context


  • Product Management experience from the technology sector
  • Deep insight in editorial workflow, production and end-user products
  • Proven track record of launching products that solve customer problems.
  • Experience in an agile development environment.
  • Experience with experimenting to gather necessary data, as well as utilizing this data as insights to make informed decisions.
  • Proven stakeholder management skills with experience presenting to all levels of the organisation.
  • Flexibility to travel once or twice a month to meet members of your distributed team and stakeholders face to face
