Consumer Reports, Inc.

Product Manager, Innovation Lab

Job Locations US-NY-Yonkers | US-CT-Colchester | US-DC-Washington



CR’s Innovation Lab is an R&D incubator that designs, prototypes and scales solutions to the biggest problems consumers face in the market. We do this work alongside a community of technologists, entrepreneurs and advocates – working openly, nurturing technologies and devising solutions that serve consumers and enable their power. 


In response to the unprecedented influence that a handful of data-driven companies have in shaping the marketplace, we recently built and launched Permission Slip, a new app to take back control of the data companies have about us.


We’re looking for an impact-minded Product Manager to help build and grow this “smart agent” that fights for consumer’s privacy and other essential rights.  In this position, you’ll be reporting to the Innovation Lab's Director of Product R & D. 


This is a hybrid position. Under our CRFlex program, this position is eligible for Fully Remote status for candidates who live more than 75 miles from one of our main office locations (Yonkers, NY, Washington DC, Colchester, CT). Additionally, the successful candidate must reside in one of the following locations: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Texas, Vermont, Washington D.C.


How You'll Make an Impact:


You will help us realize Permission Slip’s potential by steering a product that advocates for consumers, increases the public’s awareness of how technology works, and enhances our collective privacy and power.  


As a Product Manager, you will play a leadership role on our scrappy, cross-functional product team. You’ll help set our direction, oversee daily operations, and execute against our vision to deliver digital rights to consumers at scale. You’ll collaborate with stakeholders across Consumer Reports to ensure that our development roadmap can realize our performance goals, and you’ll build against CR’s organizational mission and strategy. 



This Role Is Right For You If:


  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit that includes 2-5 years’ experience blazing new trails in software product development, ideally within early stage technology companies.
  • You know how to ship. You can move from concept to delivery, and feel confident managing complex projects and working cross-functionally to achieve objectives.
  • You have product sense. You are familiar with Product Management, Software Engineering, Strategy, Analytics, Marketing, Legal, Design, Content, or Finance, and bring expertise in at least two.
  • You have a consumer-first mentality.  You are deeply human-centered and have a track record of delivering quality products that serve users needs and maximize impact. 


You'll Be One Of Our Top Picks if:


  • You are technically fearless. You relish the challenge of learning the ins-and-outs of technical processes, and iterating to improve them.
  • You are data and experimentation savvy. You use data to guide your decisions, but also feel comfortable making calls based on incomplete and imperfect information.
  • You understand the value of teamwork. You see collaboration as the foundation of success and know how to galvanize teams and build cross-functional support.
  • You demonstrate a growth mindset.  You acknowledge when you don't have all the answers and believe failing fast and learning quickly can be the fastest path to discovery.
  • You are impact-minded. You want your work to move markets and improve the world. You believe that privacy is a human right, and feel electrified at the thought of enabling privacy and other consumer rights at scale.
