About this role:
A gift registry or gift list is a particular type of wish list popular in Western countries such as the United States. A registrant (gift receiver) can compile a gift registry or gift list and make it available to anyone who may want to present them with a gift such as family, friends, their community, or even the general public. Gift givers can be certain they are purchasing items the registrant will appreciate when buying from a gift registry or gift list. After items are purchased in store or online, the registrant is notified, and the item is marked as purchased so no duplicate gifts are purchased. If it’s an online purchase the registrant can track the order.
The Gift Registry and Gift List Experiences Product Manager will leverage guest research, quantitative data, and derive insights to set the multi-channel product strategy for the Gift Registry and Gift List portfolio online (Web & Mobile Apps) and in store (Kiosk & Registry Mobile Scanner) which includes baby, wedding, charity, and custom gift registries and other gift lists for holidays, birthdays, and more.
