Product managers set the vision for our growing ecosystem of products & services. From the development of custom e-commerce platforms to hyper-focused internal software tools, our work spans across many verticals. We’re the digital engine of growth for Canada’s largest retailer.
At Loblaw Digital we get to work at a massive scale, building web and native experiences used by millions of diverse people every week. Product Managers are pivotal to delivering inspiring products. We are responsible for transforming opportunity into reality through the synthesis of technology, business, and design. Our team is passionate about creating a positive impact on the lives of millions of Canadians.
Product Managers are strong collaborators who guide multi-disciplinary teams toward a clearly defined, common goal. We work closely with the Product Design team, and help drive projects across the entire breadth of the organization - including grocery, apparel, beauty, health, and loyalty. As the hub of the wheel, we empower our project teams to succeed and constantly balance a range of diverse inputs and perspectives.
Delivering inspiring digital products requires a steady hand, and ruthless prioritization. Our Product Management team owns the product roadmap, and as such shapes the goals and delivers on the vision for the product.
We leverage large bodies of qualitative and quantitative data to ensure that we are making informed decisions, and to uncover new insights and opportunities. Working closely with our business partners, developers, and product designers our team stays laser-focused on the sweet-spot at the intersection of desirability, viability, and feasibility.
In our own words
We asked a few members of our Product Management team to share their perspectives, and a few words of advice:
What advice would you have for other product managers?
If you like working closely with product designers, other product managers and development teams, this environment is like no other. Prepare to be meaningfully engaged on your points of view on many matters, and use the experience and skill of folks around you to make the best decisions you can.
Why did you decide to join Loblaw Digital?
It was the same thing that I continue to brag about to friends & family: The Culture. There are so many things that come together to create such an engaging work environment, but if I had to pick two it'd be the team and the ongoing opportunities for growth.
What surprised you most when you joined Loblaw Digital?
The degree of autonomy we have, even as part of a large company. Having worked in an innovative role at a previous company, I felt continually hindered by company processes. Loblaw approaches digital in the right way. We truly embody the build-measure-learn experimentation methodology.
What excites you most about working at Loblaw Digital?
We have a talented team located all in one place, which helps accelerate decision-making and the implementation of solutions. There is no shortage of challenging problems to solve, and our team works closely to build the best products for our customers.
What core values do you try and embody in your work at Loblaw Digital?
Put the customer first. In everything we do, we always try to do right by the customer and keep a close ear to all of the various types of feedback and data that we have access to.
Own the backlog including daily prioritization, grooming, writing user stories and generally keeping the dev team unblocked and running as fast as possible.
Build and lead a growing team of Product Managers. In this role you will have end-to-end responsibility for all product management activities.
