Description

We're running an Online Hiring Event on December 22nd, 2018 to hire EVPs of Technical Product Management ($800K/yr).

Online Hiring Events are live forums designed to enable you to understand the role and requirements through an interactive Q&A session followed by a self-directed testing process. The testing takes between 3-5 hours to complete. It’s worth taking the time to finish all the tests because we evaluate every single complete application to find the top talent.

This event will include all testing required to apply for the role. Upon grading the tests, and if you advance, we will set up an interview with the hiring manager.

As an EVP of TPM, you will work across dozens of products to understand the problems they solve and make important technical decisions that will determine their long term viability.

We believe that our approach towards Technical Product Management is truly unique. We objectively define each product in terms of the market it serves and the technology it leverages.

We uncover market-gaps or user pain-points by identifying CIV (Challenging, Important or Valuable) problems specific to that domain. We employ a standardized process to elicit relevant information from SMEs and succinctly describe each CIV Problem.

We then define Core Functionality (CFs) which the product will implement in order to address each CIV Problem. Through a combination of CIV Problems and CFs, we are in a position to analyze the product-market fit in an objective, standardized fashion. A CIV problem without any CFs is a remaining gap, while a CF which doesn’t address a CIV problem represents unnecessary complexity within the solution.

Once we have articulated the product-market fit, we turn our attention (and most of our time) towards identifying the Important Technical Decisions (ITDs) that will provide the core functionality in the most effective way.

As an EVP, you will:

  • Take responsibility for leading the technical growth and product differentiation across multiple companies in our portfolio.

  • Make long-lasting important technical decisions spanning multiple products over a number of years.

  • Mentor a team whose focus is on making design decisions that define the core architecture of each product.

  • Make critical decisions about these products and use your passion for technology to inspire debate.

  • Decide when and how to leverage a particular technology and maintain an active, clearly articulated point of view on core technical matters.

  • Solve complex, ever-changing problems across a broad and growing product portfolio.

  • Work closely with our F500 customer executives.

As part of a collaborative group of technical experts, you will create and iterate our process and technology playbooks, providing clear and concise guidance on how to produce each type of deliverable or when and how to apply a particular technology.

On a daily basis you will leverage your existing technical expertise and communication skills to:

  • Know what’s important. Understand where to focus your attention. Look for factors that impact the core of the product.

  • Communicate clearly and effectively. Not only should you be able to make your point concisely and unambiguously, but you also need to distill the important information from what others say and write.

  • Be able to simplify. Focus on the core the product, where your input can have the greatest impact.

Members of our TPM teams are not typical product managers. They do not spend their time managing engineering teams or planning sprints. Nor do they work long-term on a single project or focus on UI/UX design. As a result, no product management experience is required for this role.

Candidate Requirements:

  • A Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related discipline, (M.Sc. or Ph.D. preferred)

  • 5+ years of hands-on production code development and architecture experience in Java or C# on a scalable, commercial product

  • Leveraged both traditional RDBMS as well as contemporary alternatives such as Graph, Columnar, Key-Value and/or Document databases

  • Thorough practical understanding of many (4+) common Design and Enterprise Integration Patterns

  • Have developed and maintained deep technical skills across a variety of technologies and domains

  • 10+ years of recent hands-on experience as CTO, Chief Architect or SVP/EVP of Software Engineering

  • 10+ years of hands-on technical development and architecture experience on a commercial software product

  • A total of 20+ years of technical experience in designing and developing software solutions

  • 5+ years managing executive level relationships with clients and partners

  • Delivered solutions to enterprise clients in sectors such as financial services, telecoms or enterprise SaaS.

  • Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English, and the ability to identify and articulate patterns in unstructured and unorganized content

  • Have experience managing a team of at least 10 members and been responsible for the work output they produce in terms of both quantity & quality

  • 10+ years of experience being responsible of approving other people's technical design decisions for a commercial software product or software-as-a-service

  • On a number of previous projects (5+), you will have been the primary decision maker for how different cloud services should be used correctly as a part of what you were building

  • 10+ years of experience of being responsible for creating design artifacts (including decision-making and documentation responsibilities)

Timezone Requirements

Our teams are designed to accommodate top talent across a wide range of time zones, however, there are certain hours we require in order to have team-based collaboration or to have customer-facing engagements in the customer's working hours. Candidates should be able to work 8 hours a day while meeting the following constraints Monday-Friday:

1) 2 hours between 9:00AM-11:00AM EST (US "core" hours)

2) 2 additional hours between 8am-8pm EST (US "customer" hours)
