The Hired Guns are seeking a highly skilled Principal Technical Product Manager to steer all data product initiatives for the world’s leading non-profit in science, exploration, and education.
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This global non-profit organization funds hundreds of research and conservation projects around the world each year, inspiring new generations through educational initiatives and resources. In order to keep up with their global reach, they’re looking for a Principal Technical Product Manager who will lead their data product initiatives. (Note, in this organization, “Principal” is a highly senior role.) This role is essential for developing the data pipelines that will enable the tech team to create personalized experiences for customers by leveraging data on behavior, preferences, and how customers interact with the site’s content. You will be tasked with developing and maintaining all data products and services – and the underlying infrastructure required to support them. To achieve this, you will be in charge of creating and implementing a data mesh architecture — a totally new endeavor for this organization but one that will revolutionize how they use data.
Did we mention this is a fully remote job for one of the world’s most renowned, mission-driven companies? Yep, it’s a good look.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
Clearly, this is a highly specialized role. You’d be a great fit if you’re a data product wizard, with deep experience in developing enterprise software products. You’ve probably had hands-on experience working with the core components of a data platform: metadata catalogs, transformation tools, message buses, APIs, automation tools, and microserves. Maybe you’ve even spent some time building a data mesh architecture yourself. And, at your core, you’re a strong product manager who knows how to manage their roadmap and get cross-functional partners in alignment.
Another potential way you’re a fit: You’re a senior-level product manager with a penchant for backend systems and a knack for problem solving. Sure, you’ve never built a data mesh architecture before, but you’d be excited to learn (and have a proven track record of learning on the fly). You’ve probably been put in a situation before where you didn’t know the technology, but you figured it out and became the expert in your org on it. You’re fundamentally curious, extremely good at working cross-functionally, and have a deep desire to challenge yourself and grow inside a stellar company that will nurture your inner nerd.
The Inside Skinny
Why you should quit your job right now and join this organization!
When your alarm goes off in the morning, you’ll jump to your feet, feeling great about working for an organization that is promoting scientific discovery and protecting the natural world! Not to mention, you’ll be working at a very senior level, so you’ll have a lot of sway and room for growth. Ready to hear more and meet with the Director of Product? We want to hear from you today.
