This huge company has some ideas about how to make the inhabitants of its buildings happier and more productive. Luckily for you, those good ideas involve creating new platforms and products that’ll allow said inhabitants to take care of a multitude of tasks quickly and painlessly right on their mobile devices. But they need a seasoned, talented leader — one a lot like you, matter of fact — to ensure that those products are designed very smartly and will indeed deliver high-value experiences for users. For anyone looking to get on board with a groundbreaking initiative, at a senior level, in a seriously successful company, this gig absolutely demands a close look.
With a talented team working beneath you, you’ll pull out all the stops to deliver the absolute best possible user experiences. What issues are causing pain points or slowing the works as, say, the manager of an office building attempts to onboard new occupants? What features should be killed or added to an app that uses AI to prompt you to add someone as a visitor to your office when it recognizes a non-company email address? What are users telling you about their journeys? What’s the most effective means of helping a newcomer navigate a sprawling corporate complex? What problems need to be solved in that new tenant-onboarding app — and why are they problems?
You will, of course, run an awful lot of testing, and you will, of course, be the principal interpreter of the insights to be found through that testing. You’ll be a constant advocate for the user’s point of view, even if it means being a thorn in the side of people who lack your empathy and concern for the process. And of course you’ll foster in your team a drive to create astonishingly handy tools that make people’s lives easier.
Hired Gun Proﬁle
You are the consummate pro: You haven’t stumbled into the role by accident but rather by virtue of the places in the process you most highly prioritize. You’re a deeply analytical thinker who, in every discussion and at every decision-point, sees things through to their final front-end impact. You’re able to think both forward and backward, from the final product to the developmental building-blocks and vice-versa. You wouldn’t dream of making an important decision without consulting data.
Your five-plus years of hardcore product work at corporations has included increasing managerial duties. You’re now more than comfortable heading up a team. You delight in nurturing colleagues’ talent, eliciting the best from your people, going to bat for them, and setting high standards. You communicate extremely well, whether in team meetings, in one-on-ones with other directors, presenting to more senior people, or conveying your insights in writing.
This company believes in the Three Horizons approach to innovation. Be ready to discuss.
