Product Manager

Posted Aug 9


Product Managers are responsible for definition, prioritization, and management of the product backlog and roadmap. To accomplish this, they collect feedback from all stakeholders, work to define requirements and features, and work with the development teams to estimate and schedule the work.

For products assigned to them, the Product Managers will also create use case and product requirement documentation that will outline feature requests prior to development (why is the feature needed, who needs it, how do we measure success). Product Managers own this documentation from creation, to working with stakeholders and executives for approval, to working with other teams to validate the product delivers the expected results; they will also own the change log to these documents.

This position requires participation in the four step release process, assuring that processes are in place, deadlines and quality standards are met, risks identified and mitigated, and professional communications are maintained on a regular schedule to internal and external stakeholders.

As one of the primary customer-facing contacts, the Product Manager bears a significant responsibility to ensure a positive client experience through delivering a desirable product.
