Your responsibilities will include:

  • Process Improvement: Drive operational excellence within the product team, implementing best practices for product management and development.
  • Team Leadership: Guide and mentor a team of product managers operating as a player-coach, fostering a culture of collaboration, innovation, and customer-centricity.
  • Requirements Gathering: Collaborate with external stakeholders and internal teams to gather and refine detailed product requirements.
  • Cross-Functional Collaboration: Partner with engineering, design, and other teams to ensure successful product development and delivery.
  • Roadmap Development: Translate high-level requirements into a detailed product roadmap, prioritizing features based on impact and feasibility.

About You:

You're a seasoned product leader with a passion for solving complex problems and a proven track record of delivering impactful products in regulated environments. You have a deep understanding of product management principles and a strong technical aptitude.

You possess the following skills and experience:

  • Strategic Thinking: Ability to develop a compelling product vision and translate it into an actionable roadmap.
  • Technical Acumen: Strong understanding of software development and API integrations.
  • Team Leadership: Experience building and leading high-performing product teams.
  • Stakeholder Management: Proven ability to collaborate with diverse stakeholders.
  • Communication Skills: Excellent written and verbal communication, with the ability to present complex ideas clearly and concisely.
