  • MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

    YOUR IMPACT

     

    The Technical Product Manager (TPM) is responsible for defining market requirements of our internal and external Cloud Native use cases and packaging the features into product releases. This role closely interacts with engineering leads, architects, key clients, and our Cloud vendors. A strong technical background (either educational or practical work experience) is required. The TPM will gather requirements from existing and potential clients, develop Agile product backlogs, and monitoring the implementation of each product.

     

    The TPM fills the roadmap details from "Now" to the roadmap destination identified by the VP of Product Strategy by merging the understanding of the strategy with the understanding of software development into a credible path of incremental delivery to the destination.

     

    The TPM will ensure delivery of MVP and increments, and work with software development engineering to understand and communicate roadmap impact that can be mitigated by engineering velocity investment (i.e., inadequate tooling, training, etc) to secure additional funding from sponsors for those investments. Software development management (SDM) is also co-committed to this function.
