Technical Product Manager

Engineering Long Beach, California


Description

A Technical Product Manager must have superior communication skills to translate between the direction the executives (and product managers) want to go, what the product development team should implement, and how marketing and sales teams should sell it.  As the chief advocate for a specific feature set and its benefits, you will be the Product Owner, helping prioritize product features and customer requirements, defining release plans, and managing the project schedule to ensure that the team delivers on time and on target.

Working alongside our agile development teams, you will anticipate bottlenecks, provide escalation management, pivot and make tradeoffs, and balance customer needs versus technical constraints. You are able to take long-term product goals, break them down into manageable pieces, and then deliver them in a successful and timely manner.
