NIKE, Inc. does more than outfit the world's best athletes. It is a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries and push out the edges of what can be. The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders and visionaries. At NIKE, Inc. it's about each person bringing skills and passion to a challenging and constantly evolving game.

The first spark of a product idea sets the NIKE, Inc. Product team into motion. The team of developers, testers, engineers, designers and managers obsess over Nike's iconic silhouettes and create groundbreaking new styles. They collaborate, ideate and refine products' construction, fit and materials. They maintain a keen understanding of consumer and market trends. They skillfully operate at the intersection of buyer needs, technical feasibility and business objectives.

You will be responsible for collecting and analyzing product, consumer and competitive trends in the key markets, and run consumer focus groups and present feedback at key events. You'll be responsible for sharing information to ensure integration cross-categorically and directly with category apparel counterparts. You'll partner with Merchandising on seasonal line plans, utilize market knowledge and geographical input to ensure that there is an agreed line plan that meets the product and financial goals. You'll act as the proprietor of Tee COE analysis and historical information. You'll create presentations to sell-in the product. In addition, you'll also be responsible for executing against style/SKU level to optimize productivity, margin and revenue.
