Product Management at Lenskart

The person will be leading the Lenskart @Home's products and primarily be responsible for ensuring that the product is aligned with the short term tactical and long terms strategic goals of the category. You will be working with an experienced team of engineers, business leaders, content writers, animators and designers to take the product through multiple successful releases.

The following crisply defines our philosophy of Product Management and describes our "Ideal Product Manager".

  1. Your product strategy and vision are most effective when they are substantiated with real user interactions and data analytics.
  2. A list of 10 items for the next release with a clear sense of priority will go a long way to ensure that the release is both effective and on-time.
  3. While working closely with Engineering, Content developers and other product managers it is crucial to identify dependencies early on for a smooth release.
  4. You know from the bottom of your heart that a PRD that speaks out the user’s needs and wants is the best way to ensure internal buy-in and super high productivity levels.
  5. A simple annotated wireframe is much better than a 5-page PRD.
  6. A PRD that is more than 5 pages will not be read.
  7. A feature no matter how great it sounds, is a true success only when it can be measured.
  8. Not all your features will be a runaway success and will need constant fine-tuning on an iterative basis.
  9. In spirit, you are the CEO of your product.
