As an open infrastructure organisation, we ingest and distribute metadata from our 13000+ member organisations worldwide, ensuring community collaboration in everything that we do. Our work helps achieve open research and open metadata goals, for the benefit of society. This is a time of considerable change for the Crossref community, and you can help shape our future.
We are a [small team](/people/) with a big impact, and we’re looking for a creative, technically-oriented Product Manager to join us in improving scholarly communications. Reporting to the [Director of Product](/people/org-chart/), Product Managers at Crossref are expected to work across multiple products and services. This role, at least initially, is focused around ‘scholarly stewardship’ and includes [Similarity Check](/services/similarity-check/), [Funder Registry](/services/funder-registry/) and [registering research grants](/education/content-registration/content-types-intro/grants/), as well as others.
This position is full time and, as for all Crossref employees, location is flexible. The Crossref team is geographically distributed in Europe and North America and we fully support working from home. We have two small offices (Lynnfield, MA, USA and Oxford, UK) that are temporarily closed due to the pandemic. It would be good to have a minimum 3-hour overlap with the US Eastern time zone.
To apply, please send your cover letter, resume, and at least one sample of an effective product specification or epic/story development to Lindsay Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if you don’t think you have all of the right experience, we’re really excited to hear from you.
