Technical Project Manager - IoT

Engineering - Professional Services Bangalore, India


Ayla Networks is redefining the way brands, enterprises, and service providers can develop, monetize, and support connected products for the Internet of Things (IoT) in a way that’s open, scalable, and economical. Ayla provides the industry’s first Agile IoT Platform, an end-to-end software fabric running across devices, cloud, and apps to create secure connectivity, data analytics, and feature-rich customer experiences.  

As a Technical Project Manager (TPM), you will architect and deliver an Internet of Things (IoT) solution on the Ayla Platform that is comprised of embedded software, cloud, and mobile apps. You will guide clients and vendors on how to use and extend our solution using APIs and the latest voice features from Amazon and Google. You will handle the day-to-day technical issues that arise during deployment and implement controls to keep the project on track. Finally, you will own the client relationship and vision for maximizing the value of the Ayla solution.

Because of their strong technical background, TPMs aren’t intimidated when confronted with a challenge. They have confidence they can bridge knowledge gaps through independent research and learning from others.

Often the challenge is how to balance competing critical items. The TPM’s experience allows them to identify interdependencies so that work is executed as efficiently and flawlessly as possible.
