  • improving collaboration between individuals and groups
  • positively motivating the team to deliver on their commitments
  • helping clear obstacles for the team, and highlighting obstacles to the leadership team - well before those obstacles become issues
  • being able to understand the big picture, but also being able to dive into the details when necessary

Responsibilities

  • Act as a communications interface between the product and engineering teams to
    • understand requirements,
    • help break down features into user stories, and
    • assist in prioritization of features.
  • Develop plans to minimize risk and ensure on-time, on-budget releases.
  • Coordinate communication between various engineering groups, and between engineering and external stakeholders.
  • Maintain and communicate status to external stakeholders.

Defining Characteristics

The Product Manager will exhibit the following key characteristics:

  • Prefer to manage by influence rather than by fiat.
  • Prioritize collaboration and compromise.
  • Be the “oil over troubled waters”.
  • Pragmatism over dogmatism.

Qualifications and Experience

  • At least 5 years as a product manager working in fast-paced, agile product teams, preferably in a startup environment.
  • Past success in using agile methodologies to release software products.
  • Demonstrated experience in helping product teams translate amorphous feature requirements into actionable user stories, and delivered features.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
  • Experience as a developer, especially using Javascript frameworks is a plus, but not necessary.
