Are you up for the challenge and the fun?  If so, consider the following opportunity!

We are looking for a sports fanatic and experienced product manager to join our Digital Products team. This role will lead and directly manage a key pillar of our product suite: the mobile app. The SN app engages Canadian sports fans on daily basis and contributes to the business both via advertising/sponsorship revenue and lead generation for Sportsnet NOW. We are looking for someone who will bring their passion, expertise, and vision to deliver the best sports app experience in Canada.   

The successful candidate will have their finger on digital trends; stay up-to-date with emerging technologies, processes, approaches, and competitor offerings. While focused on sports, we expect the right person to possess a breadth of interests, and deeply understand the workings of mobile apps in multiple domains. 

The Product Manager will forge strong working relationships with internal stakeholders (IT & UX, marketing, editorial, business leadership, etc.), as well as external partners. The individual will be able to balance their own expertise and experience with the inputs from all these groups, always keeping top of mind: user experience, engagement and revenue growth. 

Furthermore: this person will be obsessed with winning.

As Canada’s #1 Sports Network, our mission at Sportsnet is to unite Canadians through sport with front-row access to the content they love, accessible from anywhere. Whether on the ice, field, court or behind-the-scenes, we strive to provide the most access to and best insights on the sports that matter most to Canadians. #UnitedBySport
