Head of Product & UX (w/m) (PUX) 80-100%

Tamedia ist die führende private Schweizer Mediengruppe. Die Digitalplattformen, Tages- und Wochenzeitungen und Zeitschriften von Tamedia bieten Überblick, Einordnung und Selektion. Das 1893 gegründete Unternehmen beschäftigt rund 3'400 Mitarbeitende in der Schweiz, Dänemark, Luxemburg, Deutschland und Österreich und ist seit 2000 an der Schweizer Börse kotiert.

And PUX is the product and UX team within Tamedia. We help some of the biggest Swiss brands to build better products. Now that’s a lot of blah. Let’s try to explain in depth. Tamedia owns or is invested in many well known companies and brands. Doodle, Homegate, 20Minutes, Ricardo, tutti, Tagesanzeiger, Autoricardo, Jobs.ch and many others. These companies have amazing product teams, but sometimes they need support. Be it a specialist who’s focused on growth or research, be it because they need to speed up. And that’s where we come in. We are a power team of 12+ UX- and product-people who can swoop in, help, run, manage, research, grow, design, prototype and consult. Even smile. And we only do it for Tamedia-companies and brands and we only do it because we love good products. Was that clear(ish)? Oh, and PUX is a fast growing team, we’re in startup-mode. That’s why we are looking for a person, who knows the pros and cons of an agency and how to ensure that we are always top-notch in what we do. So if you’re slow, if you don’t like change or if you like the band U2 - well you know what.

Head of Product & UX (w/m) (PUX) 80-100%

Your responsibilities:

You will lead our Product & UX team and ensure that we keep our awesomeness level (high quality work) and team spirit high. As we work in an agency setup you will have the overall responsibility of projects, budgets and resources. We handle quite a lot of projects at the same time, that’s why an extraordinary ability of communicating, planning and business thinking is highly required. You will work closely together with the CPO of Tamedia Marketplaces to develop the strategy and vision of PUX further. Last but not least: Empowering and supporting your team is your most important and most favorite job. 

Your profile:

  • Years of experience in leading a UX or a product team  (Preferred: You already know how an agency works) 
  •  Data-driven and customer-centered is the only way to go 
  •  Provide strategic thinking, UX Design leadership and business thinking 
  •  Be pragmatic and have an open personality, at the same time be funny. Or at least appreciate humor 
  •  English is our business language, (Swiss) German is a big plus

What we offer:

  • Tamedia’s benefits (different discount on partner platforms, pension fund, Public bike free for a year subscription and much more) 
  • The MAC or PC you need (yes, also the pink one) 
  •  Regular team events somewhere in Europe Educational programs 
  •  Diversity: we are a colorful bunch of individuals, with 55% women, 8 nationalities, vegetarians, meat-lovers, cat- vs. dog-people. Just no U2 fans. 
  •  A very well located office: near Stauffacher and 10 min. by walk from the Zürich main station

Perks & Benefits

You get free apples. That's about it. If you're lucky (and we like you) you might get the Mac/PC you want, the phone to play with, enough money to travel the world, a cool working environment, funny co-workers, team-events, workshops, holidays (plus optional unpaid leave). And did we mention the world?

Workplace & Culture

Sounds big. And it is. Because more important than any CV or "ex-whatever"-gibberish is your personality. You need to fit to us and we to you. We're all very different people, with different attitudes and different ideas. But we have a few things in common: We laugh, we play and we're passionate. Sounds blah again. But it's true. There's no elbow, no pissing-contest, no my-precious. We help each other, we learn from each other, and fight with each other. But always with each other.
