What It's All About:

We seek the truth and help people understand the world. This mission is rooted in our belief that great journalism has the power to make each reader's life richer and more fulfilling, and all of society stronger and more just.

The New York Times is looking for a Product Manager who will support and grow our subscription business across our News, Cooking and Games products. You will have to balance strategic thinking with the nuts and bolts of getting features out the door. You will work in a collaborative environment with multiple partners. You will work with data and contribute to a culture of testing and learning.

The New York Times is respected for its visionary, high-quality journalism, its reach and its influence. We are transforming the nation's "newspaper of record" into a subscriber-first, user-centered media company. Our ambition is to redefine our customer experience with the same level of excellence as our journalism.

Our Team:

The Subscriber Growth mission unlocks the full potential of our subscription business by building experiences and developing capabilities that grow and engage qualified audiences, convert engaged readers into new subscribers, and satisfy and retain our existing customers. Help us do that.

What You'll Do:

As an Associate Product Manager in the Growth mission, you will develop features, experiences, tools and services to make the way our subscribers use NYT as effective as possible.
  • You will prioritize an engineering roadmap based on customer needs, revenue impact and input from partners and company leadership.
  • You will identify and document (user flows and wireframes) product requirements for features in collaboration with peers from design and engineering.
  • You will monitor and analyze essential performance metrics, and use this data to identify opportunities, improve user experiences and produce incremental revenue.
  • You will develop clear, relevant, testable hypotheses for quantitative and qualitative validation.
  • You have strong analytical and quantitative skills and are comfortable digging into the numbers.
  • You will be a stalwart champion for our users and readers while driving conversion, engagement, satisfaction, and loyalty.


You have demonstrated product development skills, including writing technical specifications and performing opportunity sizing. You're curious and open-minded, able to question but commit. Additionally, you have a consistent record of successfully working with both engineers and designers, and communicating effectively both horizontally and vertically.

Preferred Qualifications:
  • 2-3 years of relevant experience
  • Interest in and a passion for user-centered design
  • Can synthesize user data and customer research into applicable product insights
  • Familiarity with agile software development methodology, particularly Scrum, and experience creating wireframes and mockups to help guide product discovery and development
  • A very strong collaborator and relationship builder, able to work in a matrix with a variety of teams and subject matter experts
  • Entrepreneurial and innovative, eager to discover new tools, tactics, and information that will help drive business and goals
  • Strong knowledge of the app landscape
