Category Manager

Posted 1 month ago

Do you have the magic gift of developing and executing product strategies that align with business objectives? And are you looking for the opportunity to unleash your category management skills in a fast-growing global organisation?

Then come join the fellowship of Arcane Tinmen and take our product development to new heights as you immerse yourself in our world of card gaming and role playing.

Arcane Tinmen – dungeons, dragons and dazzling wizards

At Arcane Tinmen, we develop, sell and distribute the world-famous brand Dragon Shield – which consists of trading card and game accessories and digital services to gamers – to a community of dedicated and passionate players from all over the world. We are geeks, and we are proud of it. We play Magic, table football and ping pong in our breaks.

We hope that you are interested in our niche segment. Nevertheless, one thing is certain: a whole new world will open before your eyes once you join 40 dedicated colleagues at our magical office in Braband.

Make your magic within the field of category management

As our new category manager, you will join a team of 11, which consists of product managers as well as graphic and industrial designers. You will also collaborate closely with cross-functional teams to develop and execute product strategies.

Together, we are on a quest to create amazing products that enhance the gaming experience of trading card enthusiasts worldwide.

You’ll work with both existing and new categories, and your primary focus will be on driving revenue and market growth by identifying and capitalising on market trends and customer needs.

Doing so, you will:

  • Develop and implement product strategies
  • Define our product vision, goals and roadmap based on market insights
  • Define product requirements and priorities based on customer feedback and business objectives
  • Monitor the progress of product development and make necessary adjustments as well as recommendations for improvements
  • Develop go-to-market strategies and plans for new product launches and coordinate with marketing and sales teams to ensure successful product launches

Expect 10-15 travel days per year for attending conferences, workshops, and other industry-related trips that are relevant to your job, which will help you expand your knowledge and network.

A category manager wizard with an analytical and innovative mindset

You have a proven track-record of success within product management accompanied by deep knowledge of product development processes, market analysis and competitive intelligence. This enables you to think outside the box and spot areas of improvement.

Moreover, you can lead cross-functional teams, collaborate with stakeholders on all levels as well as communicate effectively with executives and customers.

Also, you can see yourself in the following:

  • You hold a master’s degree in business, marketing or a related field
  • You can demonstrate proficiency in project management tools and software
  • You are fluent in English – Danish is an advantage but not a requirement
