We are looking for a passionate and seasoned Product Owner to join our Product Management organization and lead product development for our Media Relations product line.
Meltwater believes that business strategy will be increasingly shaped by insights from the growing world of online data that lies outside the corporate firewall. We see customer needs for media continuing to evolve in the direction of new content formats, shortened delivery times and an explosion in outside-the-firewall content volume.
In support of this vision, our Media Relations product enables Meltwater customers to connect and manage their relationship with relevant journalists across the world. The product caters to the media relations professionals within the PR function. Media relations interacts with editors, reporters and journalists to land favorable media coverage that will influence their target markets. Rather than paying for ad placement, the media relations professional earns media coverage through contributing to the development of valuable news stories.
Our product makes it simple to discover journalists, get the message out to their target audiences and measure their impact. As the product owner responsible, you will have direct impact on product direction, positioning, and ultimately our business strategy.
