Posted 11/9/2019

Scopus aspires to help the world of research make better decisions with confidence. We support our key stakeholders - such as researchers, institutions and funders - through data and a platform that addresses their high-value needs. Published content, and the entities and relationships derived from it, are core to this capability. The use of entities created through Scopus data offers value to those individuals and institutions (for showcasing and assessment) and supports high-value decision making. We are looking for a creative, technical, analytical and ambitious individual with a strong personal drive to contribute to the further growth and professionalization of the linked data (profiles) on Scopus.com. The role will contribute directly to our goals by emphasizing our ability to resolve entities and link data, through high quality author and organizational profiles. This role will act as the single point of accountability for the final author and institutional profiles tailored for Scopus and potentially leveraged by other apps. The product manager will be responsible for defining the requirements and priorities for this core asset, working with the product to optimize profiles for maximum customer value and ensuring the initiatives serve the interest of Scopus profiles. Key areas of responsibility: - Maintain a high standard of the present state profiles. - Establish a deep understanding for what drives customer preference and where the market is heading, through close contact with customers. - Provide the vision and road-map for Scopus author and institutional profiles. Align this with business development strategy and communicate across stakeholders (including draft collateral for marketing). - Deliver on the identified priorities by driving seamless collaboration between cross-functional teams within the Elsevier organization and partners. - Align/coach team members to ensure customer needs are met. Develop team members, through coaching, mentoring, etc. Where it makes sense - in terms of priority and execution - the scope of the role can be expanded to incorporate other aspects of linked data (e.g. citation graph). PhD in a technical subject is preferred, but not essential. MBA or management degree desirable but not required. - 4 to 6+ year experience in product and/ or project management including ownership and success in leading the release of products as well as development of deep customer relationships that drive meaningful dialogue about the future direction of a product - Solid and proven analytical skills, combining strong eye for details with a good holistic view - Passion for analyzing big data and an understanding of bibliometrics or scientometrics - Fluency in English
