The Hired Guns are seeking a Senior Product Manager who has experience driving location-based native apps for products and platforms that have meaningful real-world applications. This deep-stealth-mode client has big plans to, well, change everything. Do we have your attention?
This top-secret client is looking for a product manager with a background in a cloud-based B2C or B2B2C consumer tech role for a game-changing new location-based mobile app that aims to revolutionize a global market.
The demands of this job are a grid in which product development, design/UX, engineering, data and quality assurance intersect with mobile and logistics. But the real emphasis (and challenge) for this one is the human touch: user experience is the first and biggest metric. So a background in data is good, but consumer-side experience is essential to get a seat at this table of machine-learning AI.
This lofty undertaking will require the product manager to clearly outline all benchmarks and define the strategy to achieve them in conjunction with the program manager. This means prioritizing must-have features behind must-have-NOW ones and discerning necessary changes that adhere to, and hone, the ultimate goal: hitting the launch date with enough product in place to make users happy.
What Success Looks Like
The service-level agreements that make this app’s reputation must be flawless, every single time. If users can’t rely on Project X to connect providers with buyers in the clutch, they won’t waste a minute before deleting it. Give them an interface they can’t live without it, and keep them hooked.
Hired Gun Profile
A computer science degree (or early career background) is just the start. Your analytical talents can chart a course beyond the horizon, but you’re flexible enough to course-correct along the way. You thrive on user feedback and can communicate it to engineering and product design teams to incorporate improvements that weren’t originally planned. You’ve also managed a team before — including remotely — and possibly even other product managers.
You know your way around scalable platform tools, from customer relationship management to global CS, and the portal management where they meet. Your statistics background means your products and services never fail.
Your job’s not done until the user’s happy — no, in love — with the UX that you’ve wrought. Program management loves you, because you understand each functional area’s needs in relation to one another. Turn them into measurable product goals with your fantastic logistics experience.
You’ve had great bosses and want to emulate them; here you’ll find opportunities both technical and personal. You’ll fix issues by looking at them holistically, not as single-point snags.
Every company says they’re seeking self-motivated team players for a high-paced environment, but this one actually means it. You need agility and ability for this analytically ambitious ambiguity. They want a problem-solver like you walking in on day one with both eyes open so the moonshot isn’t delayed while you get up to speed.
This is hush-hush undertaking where AI, machine learning, and natural language processing team up to change an entire industry. If you’re experienced but updating and upgrading your career with a shot at a more senior role, you’re at exactly the right juncture to join this project with huge growth potential.
