Schibsted User Foundations is hiring a Senior Product Manager to our Privacy Services team. This is a new leadership role in the team, with both strategy formation, product and people management responsibilities.

Over the last 5 years, the Privacy Services team in Schibsted has developed and operated a portfolio of platforms, products and services, both developed entirely within Schibsted and based on third party SaaS Consent Management Platform tech. We are now poised for a renewed period of investment into this team, as it grows to handle the increasing demands of users, our brands and the law in the growing number of countries we operate within.

Leading a team comprised of yourself and two other product managers, you will work together in a functional triangle with engineering and design teams ring-fenced for this team’s work. Together, this combined team will create an experience of privacy within Schibsted’s products that is centred on the user’s needs. At the same time, these products also need to deliver critical legal and commercial results for our business. This team’s products will be adopted by market-leading business to consumer brands within Schibsted across Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

To do this, you’ll need to be able to inspire your team with passion and energy for both our users, our brands and the privacy domain. You’ll need to be able to train new product managers on how to work within modern empowered product teams. You’ll also need to be able to lead and influence at senior levels, communicating with the highest clarity about strategy, mission, objectives, priorities and the results your team will achieve. And you’ll need to find ways to make potentially complex privacy concepts as simple as possible for our users and for our brands.

The role will report to the Director of Product for User Foundations within the Schibsted Product and Tech Foundations team.

Your responsibilities include

  • Defining and anchoring a product strategy for your team with senior leaders across Schibsted, including our brand teams.
  • Engaging with senior stakeholders on a regular basis - gathering input, communicating progress, setting expectations and anchoring decisions
  • Simplifying the challenges posed to the business by the various privacy regimes we operate with into pragmatic solutions that keep the user as their primary focus
  • Formulating challenging and realistic Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) with their team and achieving these
  • Applying and developing empowered product team practices to achieve those objectives
  • Hiring, training, inspiring, coaching and managing other product managers
  • Contributing to the larger User Foundations management and leadership team


  • 5 years+ of Product Management experience from the consumer-facing technology, media or online marketplace sectors
  • Proven track record of launching platform and SDK-based products that solve user and business problems.
  • Experience in an agile development environment, alongside work within an empowered product team with a high degree of autonomy in decision-making
  • Experience with experimenting to gather necessary data, as well as utilizing this data as insights to make informed decisions.
  • Demonstrable experience in people management and leadership skills, ideally within a product management context. Other leadership contexts will also be viewed positively.
  • Insight into the challenges posed by GDPR and other privacy regimes (e.g. iOS), as demonstrated through products and services you’ve worked to deliver and where you can clearly describe how you influenced how the team tackled these challenges. Having said that, it is important to note that specific certifications, expertise and experience within GDPR and privacy, though beneficial to an applicant’s assessment for this role, will not be an absolute requirement. Product management and leadership skills will be weighted more heavily.
  • Proven stakeholder management skills with experience presenting and evangelising to all levels of the organisation.
  • Ability to travel occasionally to meet stakeholders and team members in any of our countries of operation (Denmark, as well as Finland, Norway, Poland and Sweden).
