Director - Product Management

Gurugram, Haryana, India Full-time

About Grofers:

Grofers is a low-price online supermarket that gets products across categories like grocery, beauty & wellness, household care, baby care, pet care and meats & seafood delivered to your doorstep. At Grofers we believe in improving the quality of life of our customers by providing the best products at the best prices. To be able to meet customer expectations and enrich their shopping experience, we provide them with products they best relate with, help them save money on everyday purchases, and give them the spending power they need.

 Objective of the role:

Grofers has a strong belief in technology driving innovation across the org. As we are growing, we need more leaders who understand how to do that in a very dynamic environment at scale. It is especially challenging given that our business is a combination of a lot of scaled and not-so-scaled tech and non-tech moving parts and we always have steep targets in sight. If you are the kind of person who gets excited by such challenges, have ideas around how it should happen from your previous experiences and are looking for a stage to make it happen and scale a product from 1 to 100, we want to talk to you.

This is a leadership position, meaning you’ll be responsible for a large mandate in our efforts to solve business problems through innovations in consumer experience and technology. You’ll be working closely with leaders across the organization to decide company-wide priorities and problems to solve. You’ll also be expected to mentor product managers in the team to help them solve these problems effectively.

Role and Responsibility:

You will be driving a large part of our innovation strategy and overseeing execution in consumer products for Grofers. Sometimes it might mean getting a new initiative from 0 to 1, at other times it might be about taking an existing product from 1 to 10, at other times it might just be about making sure the 10s don’t go down and are working as expected.

  • This would mean you will be leading a team of product managers to coach them to drive strategy, discovery, and execution in their areas. 
  • It would also mean you will be working with leaders across the company to iterate on our strategy and make sure everyone is in sync on what needs to be done. 
  • We also expect you to drive improvement in product practices to make collaboration more effective, to make the roadmap clearer and more impactful, to make prioritization more structured and to make discovery be more conclusive and insightful.
  • You will be expected to devise the right measurement and monitoring systems in place to make sure we are always aware of what’s happening in the product.
  • When required, you’ll also need to get your hands dirty and put out fires as well.

Desired Skill and abilities:

  • You have 8+ years of work experience in technology product space, with at least 2 years as a product manager in B2C e-commerce
  • You are experienced in leading a team of product managers
  • You have worked with large cross-functional technology teams at scale
  • You have proven experience in leading teams to work in ambiguity and can take decisions with whatever information is available, convincing even the most senior people in the org on these decisions
  • You are well versed in communication (oral and written) skills
  • You have proven skills in data-driven product management and are skilled in product practices around strategy, discovery and roadmap management
  • You believe in empowering and coaching juniors while ensuring outcomes, instead of working through giving orders or giving authority without accountability
  • You do not expect the ideal system, instead, take it as a challange to improve it while still ensuring outcomes within existing imperfections
