We are aThemes
, a freemium WordPress themes company (we also run a popular blog) and we are looking for a Product Manager to take ownership of the themes side of our business. Our most popular theme is Sydney: https://athemes.com/theme/sydney/
It has 100k+ installs on WordPress.org
This is a fully remote position and you can work from anywhere in the world.
What You’ll Do
There are three questions you will seek to answer.
1. How do we get more users? This is the marketing side. Partnerships can play a big role here, for example.
2. How do we improve our themes? This is the product side. This will involve determining what customers want via analysing competitors, reading reviews and feedback, checking Facebook groups etc.
3. How do we increase revenue from themes? This is related to 1 but not exactly the same: we run a freemium model and more free users means more paying users, but it is also possible to upsell our existing users more effectively and increase revenue that way, for example, without needing more users. Equally if we are getting more users but revenue isn’t going up we would have to ask why. These are the kinds of things you will be thinking about.
