Job Description:

We are constantly growing and acquiring new companies and products.  This creates growth opportunities typically only seen in the most explosive startups, but in a profitable company with over 4,000 team members worldwide.

The Vice President of Technical Product Management excels at:

  • Defining data structures and object models

  • Creating algorithms to solve high-value problems

  • Mapping solutions to large “building blocks” of existing open source components and cloud services

  • Making decisions that reduce scope in favour of simplicity

  • Clear written communication

  • Leading and managing a team

Unfortunately, most companies do a terrible job at this.  They do not do the hard work up front, and they start coding too early.  They don’t invest in developing expertise and innovation. They build roadmaps based on what competitors are already delivering or on the tactical needs of the sales team.  Their technical product managers focus on UIs and mockups instead of the product’s core data structures and algorithms.

For the Vice President of Technical Product Management position, you have likely been a Technical Co-Founder of a smaller company or a Senior Architect at a large software company such as Microsoft, Google, IBM, Oracle, etc.

Our Technical Product Management roles are much more technical than what most companies call “Product Management” so traditional “product management” experience is not a requirement.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

Create technical design specs that define the core of software products 

Know how to apply modern software design patterns (think cloud, containerization, etc) to product requirements 

Review and provide feedback to more junior product managers turning your decisions into detailed engineering plans

Job Requirements:

CANDIDATE REQUIREMENTS

Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science is absolutely mandatory, (M.Sc. or PhD preferred) 

5+ years of hands-on production code development in Java or C# on a commercial software product or end-user software supporting a service offering? 

3+ years experience in a leadership position in Application Architecture, Software Engineering, or Technical Product Management taking product requirements, making the core technical design decisions, and creating detailed specifications for a team of developers to code and test 

Able to identify and articulate patterns in unstructured and unorganized content 

Excellent verbal and written communication skills including architecture diagrams, data flows, and system component diagrams
