[As of June 2020, Quora has become a "remote-first" company.This position can be performed remotely from anywhere in the world, regardless of any location that might be specified above.]

About Quora:

The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of experience in people's heads, or buried in books and papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds -- from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences -- so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge, and we're building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.

About the Role:

We’re looking for a Group Product Manager to lead the company’s advertising and monetization efforts. In this role, you’ll own the entire advertising product strategy, driving the direction and execution of product development to support the effort, and collaborating with other product teams to ensure that we’re leveraging Quora’s strengths to set up subscriptions for success.

Responsibilities:

  • Identify key user needs and product solutions for advertisers, and balance the advertising & consumer user needs
  • Partner cross-functionally with engineering, design, product, data science, user research, and go to market teams
  • Define objectives, metrics, and key results to help guide, prioritize, and measure the success of initiatives
  • Manage project ambiguity, complexity and interdependencies in an organized and structured way

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Ability to be available for meetings and impromptu communication during Quora's "coordination hours" (Mon-Fri: 9am-3pm Pacific Time). Learn whyhere
  • 6+ years combined experience in Product Management, Data Science, or Engineering at a consumer web company
  • Experience working with advertising-based products
  • Adept at using qualitative and quantitative data to drive decisions

Preferred Qualifications:

  • B.S. in Computer Science or a related engineering or mathematical discipline
  • Curiosity and passion for Quora

Quora is hiring a Remote Product Designer - Monetization (Remote)

[As of June 2020, Quora has become a "remote-first" company.  This position can be performed remotely from anywhere in the world, regardless of any location that might be specified above.]

About Quora:

The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of experience in people's heads, or buried in books and papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds — from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences — so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge, and we're building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.

About the Team:

We're creating a repository for all human knowledge. To do this, we need to design systems that make sharing knowledge rewarding and discovering it easy; and that scale to support the participation of the entire planet. Designing a global ecosystem for knowledge sharing, and the platform for businesses to reach this audience, requires a multidisciplinary approach. We're building a diverse team with people of different backgrounds and experiences, empowered to shape strategy while moving quickly and learning as much as possible.

Designers at Quora are building a system to democratize access to all knowledge for the entire world. Our work leverages what we learn about psychological and social dynamics, communities and networks, and systems and policy design, in addition to more typical design skills. We value a diverse team and pursue candor, holism, rigor, care, and awareness in our work.

About the Role:

Quora is the perfect place for businesses or marketers to reach new customers because they are positioned at a moment of intent. We’re seeking a designer who is excited to engage with our business strategy and goals as well as building the product to achieve those goals. In this role, you will collaborate closely with sales, marketing, customers, engineers, data scientists, and product managers to solve business needs and challenges. Some problems you will face as a product designer on this team include deciding which customers to focus on, weighing the ROI to build a customer-requested feature, better anticipating user needs, and building products to attract more customers. Designers at Quora code, which means you build and test what you design with technical competence and rigor.

Responsibilities:

  • Identify high-impact opportunities, design features in pursuit of goals, and explain the trade-offs for your decisions.
  • Understand the highly technical and data-driven environment of performance advertising, generating product insights that contribute to business strategy.
  • Streamline and manage UI complexity (complexity reduction is not always the solution), resulting in polished UI design, and a clear information hierarchy that ensures a holistic feature set.
  • Collaborate with research and business marketing experts to understand the creative needs of both large and small advertisers, designing scalable solutions with empathy for customer needs (advertisers large and small, content marketers through business accounts).
  • Drive work autonomously, and have the ability to demonstrate pragmatism and agility.
  • Work quickly, effectively and cross-functionally on multiple projects. Ship new features, bug fixes, and small improvements multiple times a week.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Ability to be available for meetings and impromptu communication during Quora's "coordination hours" (Mon-Fri: 9am-3pm Pacific Time). Learn whyhere
  • A portfolio demonstrating relevant design capabilities is required. Applications without portfolios will not be reviewed.
  • 4+ years experience designing complex products in a B2B space resulting in clear, effective interactions that accomplished business goals.
  • 2+ years experience shipping production-level code in front-end technologies: React, HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
  • Proven ability to collaborate and empathize with, as well as challenge, business marketing, sales, designers, engineers, and data scientists.
  • Demonstrated visual design skill, especially in the construction of visual hierarchies, with attention to detail, typography, spacing, and color.
  • Comfort with A/B testing, data analysis frameworks.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience writing and documenting proposals
  • Interest or experience in designing for scaling products
  • Experience with effective A/B testing and a metrics driven environment
  • Deliver high quality mobile experiences for social media products
  • Experience with server-side languages like Python is a plus


We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
