Director of Product Management [PTEC-2]
American Civil Liberties Union
Product & Technology Department, NY
For nearly 100 years, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Whether it’s ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, preserving the right to vote, the right to have an abortion, the rights protected by the First Amendment and due process of law, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. The ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., for the principle that every individual’s rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, economic status, national origin, immigration status, incarceration or record of arrest or conviction. We are nonprofit and nonpartisan and have grown from a roomful of civil liberties activists to an organization of more than 1.6 million members and supporters.
The ACLU is seeking a full-time Director of Product Management to lead a product management team and help define product management at the ACLU. This leadership role will work with peers in Engineering and Design to build internal- and external-facing products that reach our programmatic goals and support the advocacy, fundraising, communications, and programmatic needs of the nationwide organization. The Director of Product Management will lead a team of product managers who work within cross-functional product teams, while advocating for a high-impact product management culture and supporting the team’s professional growth. The person in the role will join the Product & Technology Department in New York, reporting to the Chief Technology Officer.
