Product Manager Intern

Spreetail

Lincoln, NE Management & Operations
These internships will run from end of May to mid-August 2020. 

Spreetail’s software team, known internally as Tookit, builds in-house solutions to facilitate the business needs of departments like accounting, business development, customer experience, marketing, and operations. Our Product Managers work alongside our software teams and the business to build the right thing at the right time to deliver maximum impact. 

As a Product Manager Intern, you will own the product backlog and prioritization methods. You will be recognized as the face of the product and will build trust with the team and across the company. You’ll work every day to distill complex problems. The team is ultimately responsible for the success of the product - you will balance new features, performance/technical upgrades and incoming requests. 

Product Managers work across a number of groups inside and outside of Toolkit. Some days, you’ll shadow users to understand how they do their job and how those workflows fit in our software systems. Other days, you’ll work with stakeholders to understand strategic problems facing Spreetail today and tomorrow. All the while, you’ll collaborate with Software Engineers and User Experience specialists to understand the problem, work toward a solution, and prioritize the implementation of that solution. 

Toolkit Product Manager interns should be:

    • Constantly curious about the problems facing Spreetail. Are our processes effective? How can we help drive more revenue using our software? Are we building products and systems that scale with our growth? Those are questions we need to be asking daily. 
    • Relentlessly interested in solutions – whether those solutions require the buildout of new software or whether they require us to re-orient business processes 
    • Ruthless about prioritization and what matters to our business, to our users and our future 
    • Prepared to collaborate daily with engineers, experience specialists and designers and users/stakeholders from across our business 
    • Analytical and pragmatic. How can the right data inform us on our approach and guide us to the most value-focused decision? 
    • Ready to operate within an Agile environment where teams are empowered to work toward creative solutions  
    • Prepared to build out whitepapers in conjunction with partners from inside and outside of Toolkit to communicate value, our approach and share context 
    • Adaptable communicators capable of working across multiple modes of connecting with partners, users and stakeholders 

We'll reward you with:

    • Competitive hourly pay and time and a half for anything over 40 hours 
    • Leadership training and development support 
    • Opportunity to own projects from start to finish - including a community initiatives project
