RequirementsDon’t let the associate title fool you. Associate Product Managers work closely with our engineers to guide products from conception to launch. As part of the product management team, you will build products from existing ideas, and help to develop new ideas based on your industry experience and your contact with customers and prospects. You must possess a unique blend of business and technical savvy; a big-picture vision, and the drive to make that vision a reality. You must enjoy spending time in the market to understand their problems, and find innovative solutions for the broader market.
You must be able to communicate with all areas of the company. You will work with an engineering counterpart to define product release requirements. You will work with marketing communications to define the go-to-market strategy, helping them understand the product positioning, key benefits, and target customer. You will also serve as the internal and external evangelist for your product offering, occasionally working with the sales channel and key customers.
· Demonstrable entrepreneurial bent - If you want other people to tell you what to do, this is not the right place for you.
· Excellent written and oral communication skills
· Deep interest in creating and analyzing products
· Strong organizational and analytical skills
