Our purpose is to positively impact people’s lives every day in every home around the world! We work very hard to provide our consumers with high-quality, exciting 5-star products that make life easier. We thrive on passion and innovation and are looking for great people, with great ideas, who want to build the next big thing and develop while they do.

    • Our mission to positively impact people's lives every day in every home around the world allows our employees to be thinkers and tinkerers, designers and doers, creators and number crunchers, makers of things they love.  As we continue to grow, we are excited to add a Product Developer to our global team.


      The Product Development organization within SharkNinja drives our global product roadmap from concept to shelf through the constant lens of the consumer. We are the “product CEOs,” partnering cross-functionally with almost every other team within the business to drive high consumer satisfaction and business results. We are comprised of individuals from a variety of professional and educational backgrounds, from product marketing managers to consumer-focused engineers – but we all have one thing in common: we’re consistently striving to deliver a 5-star experience for every consumer on every product we bring to market.

      Here are some of the EXCITING things you’ll get to do:

          • Support the Ninja business with the development of successful and profitable programs for key products to ensure continued growth of the product portfolio – you will be responsible for the day-to-day business management and enhancement of some of our Shark product lines, including driving product improvements and optimizations, conducting user research, and partnering with Engineers, Marketers, and more on rolling these product enhancements out to ensure a continued 5-star experience.
          • Define, develop, and iterate product specifications, marrying consumer wants/needs, white space in the market, and product technologies as the primary consumer advocate.
          • Take ownership of your assigned categories’ sales performance – partnering with others in the company to identify what products are working/not working; and recommend new product opportunities to fill those gaps.
          • Lead competitive product analyses, giving your business partners insight into how Shark stacks up against the competition - and maintaining a clear lens on how we can constantly improve to make Shark the consumer’s top choice every time.
          • Be the voice of our legacy product lines: share insights and learnings from consumers and the market with Product Developers focused on NPD to ensure critical features and feedback are incorporated into next generation products.
          • Partner with SharkNinja Testing and Quality organizations to define, develop, and manage quality and performance testing procedures.
          • Act as the product “expert” for cross-functional team member questions and concerns.




          • 2-4 years of experience in product development, product marketing, marketing, human factors engineering, or a related field – preferable at a consumer goods company.
          • Bachelor’s Degree (or equivalent experience) in Business, Marketing, Management, Engineering, or a combination of the above.
          • A “100% on” consumer-first perspective when it comes to introducing new products/processes or improving current products.
          • A mindset geared toward building relationships across multi-functional teams, coupled with excellent interpersonal skills. 
          • COMMUNICATING FOR IMPACT, one of SharkNinja’s SUCCESS DRIVERS, is immensely critical in this role. Highly-effective communication skills – both written (presentation/email) and face-to-face (ability to host succinct, effective conversations that solve problems and ability to make effective presentations to all levels of management) – are required.
          • Strong project management skills, with the ability to prioritize effectively, manage multiple projects simultaneously, and stay organized in a fast-paced environment.
          • A desire to learn and grow in a passionate environment.
          • The ability to embrace transparency and shifting priorities while learning from each decision and focusing on the path forward.

At SharkNinja, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are vital to our global success. Valuing each unique voice and blending all of our diverse skills strengthens SharkNinja’s innovation every day. We support ALL associates in bringing their authentic selves to work, making an impact, and having the opportunity for career acceleration. With help from our leadership, associates, and our community, we aim to have equity be a key component of the SharkNinja DNA.


YOUR ROLE in leading our SUCCESS DRIVERS & representing our UNIQUE MINDSET

  • Lead us to be “RARELY SATISFIED” 
  • Make things better each day; “PROGRESS OVER PERFECTION”
  • Use your knowledge of our consumer, understand that “DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE”
  • Deliver something great; “WINNING IS A TEAM SPORT”
  • Be clear and honest, “COMMUNICATING FOR IMPACT”
