This is a Full-time position in Beaverton, OR posted February 22, 2021.

Product Creation, Development & Management

Become a Part of the NIKE, Inc. Team

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. And they work lockstep with Merchandising, Design, Manufacturing and others to produce the final result: products that reflect the soul of sport and inspire athletes to reach new levels of performance.

Digital Product Creation (DPC) is a part of the Nike Consumer Creation Operations team. In DPC, we utilize the power of data and digital capabilities, technology, and talent to fuel a consumer led, digitally native product ecosystem. One that amplifies creativity, drives seamless creation and unleashes obsessed consumers! We accelerate and empower a digital future from planning to design to creation to consumer.


We’re looking for a seasoned Portfolio Director within the Digital Product Creation team who will bring strong portfolio management leadership experience to actively lead the DPC portfolio and bring a strategic approach and focus. The right candidate will have a consistent track record of portfolio management working with business and technology partners and stakeholders, while demonstrating strong communication, leadership, cross-functional collaboration and problem solving skills.


Working alongside business and technology leaders you will establish and implement best-in-class portfolio delivery practices, standards, tools, and processes, enabling delivery of solutions that optimize the business and maximize value for Nike! You will facilitate and drive the portfolio planning and governance cadence to ensure the portfolio is delivering value toward Nike, Consumer Creation and DPC vision and strategy.

This includes working with the DPC Leadership Team and our enterprise partners (i.e. Global Tech) to create financial models, build DPC value case and manage value measurements, and assist with the creation of longer term roadmaps for our teams. You will manage all inbound corporate reporting requests, and facilitate portfolio level intake, planning and prioritization. It will be important for you to establish relationships and positively influence all portfolio partners, maintain an integrated portfolio to drive alignment and collaboration, and communicate highly relevant portfolio status and health information in an effective manner. Your responsibilities will also include preparation and analysis of key portfolio data, trending, and reporting information to drive portfolio insights and decision making in the critical areas of scope, schedule, budget, quality, risk, and benefits realization.


This role will report to the Senior Director of DPC Integrated Portfolio & Experience (IPE), and will directly manage the DPC Portfolio Manager. The role will engage and align with the Consumer Creation Operations Portfolio and Program Management teammates, and other portfolio and program management partners across the enterprise.
