We’re looking for an excellent product manager to help lead the charge as we build innovative new products and capabilities to capture this enormous opportunity. Your core responsibility will be to drive the success of strategic new product development initiatives. As we’ll be exploring a diversity of product opportunities, you should be a technologist, innovator and problem solver at heart and you should be fearless when approaching new technical and product domains.
At Qualified R&D, we greatly value product velocity– our ability to successfully bring innovative products to market quickly– and you’ll play a central role in this. You will need to make smart prioritization decisions and continuously evaluate tradeoffs. You will need to be the activating and driving force within your cross-functional team of product designers and engineers. You will also play a key role in evangelizing our products, soliciting the buy-in of customers and internal stakeholders to ensure that products are brought to the market successfully.
It’s a wide range of responsibilities, but the upshot is that if you love technology and are ultimately driven by creating value for customers, you’ll do great in this role and we’d love to connect with you!

To be successful, you’ll need to:

  • Work with customers and stakeholders to solicit input, facilitate debate, and drive consensus on product direction
  • Be adept at turning fledgling product ideas into product requirements and roadmaps that are well-reasoned and aligned with business goals
  • Guide the efforts of product designers and engineers toward delivering great products
  • Define a vision of how to bring new products to market through validation and launches and to maturity through customer feedback and iteration cycles
  • Do whatever it takes to help your team succeed– whether that means leading, motivating and inspiring or rolling up your sleeves to help with QA, UAT, tech writing, etc.

The ideal candidate:

  • Has 3+ years of experience in product management, preferably in the B2B space
  • Is adept at navigating technical complexities and has a technical background, preferably
  • Is a firm believer in leveraging agile product development to iteratively build toward long-term product goals
