Sports Job Interview with Nike’s Digital Sport Experience Manager – Matt Mahar

Meet Matt Mahar.  Matt is the Digital Sport Experience Manager with Nike.

I caught up with Matt at the Mixx Canada Roadshow in Vancouver where he was the Feature Speaker talking about “Is Nike A Technology Startup?: The Emergence Of Product As A Media Platform”.

Specifically, he spoke about the development and marketing thinking behind Nike Fuel and how Nike executes an integrated consumer centric experience into its products and marketing.

Matt has a very unique position with Nike in that he is in charge of the digital experience for Nike+ Basketball consumers.  He interacts with a number of departments within Nike in his role including digital, marketing, branding, retail and sales.

During this interview with Matt, we discussed:

  • How he progressed from being a “video game tester” to now his current role as Digital Sport Experience Manager
  • The unique aspects of his role with Nike that have him interacting with multiple departments within Nike
  • Advice that he would give to others that aspire to follow in his footsteps and land a job with Nike.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.

    After I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when
    new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.

    Is there a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking a few minutes and actual
    effort to make a great article… but what can I say… I
    hesitate a lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.
