Technical Product Manager

| Marina Del Rey & Playa Vista

We’re looking for a humble, but ambitious, razor-sharp Technical Product Manager who can seamlessly translate product vision to technical execution. Like us, you take product development, data driven product design, analytics, ML and AI powered platforms seriously; you’re passionate about technology enabled products and, even more so, about enabling team excellence. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints. That’s where you come in.

Why We Need This Role

We are currently seeking for someone who can drive technical product vision and development of platform services. Our selection process will emphasize technical SDLC and product development skills as well as leadership/process/organizational skills equally. The ideal candidate must be seasoned in technical product management with past experience in commercial software development.

Why You Should Join
This is a challenging and diverse role that the ideal candidate must be able to inspire, champion and teach when the need arises. We are looking for someone who is comfortable leading by influence without necessarily having formal authority. Last, we are looking for a rare mix of intelligence, integrity, domain knowledge, verbal agility, and diplomacy which allows you to rapidly earn the trust of technically astute engineers and product astute product management leaders.

  • Previous experience with and understanding of commercial / structured software engineering
  • CS degree required or equivalent work experience
  • Ability to speak “tech,” yet verbally and cognitively agile enough to hold their own in a strategy discussion with senior technical, product or executive leadership
  • Very experienced with Agile / Scrum methodologies
  • Outstanding communication skills, both written and oral
  • Solid understanding of SDLC fundamentals
  • Working understanding of SQL and strong understanding of data-driven product development concepts
  • Basic understanding of Pivotal Tracker or Jira like tools, GitHub, CD/CI and IDE tools
  • Previous experience with or good understanding of PaaS platforms is a plus

Benefits

  • Performance-based bonuses and stock options
  • Generous vacation and time off benefits including paid holidays
  • Generally flexible working hours
  • Working in a beautiful office space the heart of Silicon Beach in Playa Vista

An Insider's view of Engineer.ai

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Engineer.ai LA is a bunch of hardworking people in open and fun atmosphere. We're playful - we bond over our favorite food trucks and spar over who controls the office playlist. Calling us a family may be cliche, but it's pretty accurate.

Customer Product Expert

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Through our Builder product, we’re making software accessible to everyone. It’s cool because software engineering has been disrupting industries since the 1980s but never evolving its own and I’m excited to be a part of the team that’s doing just that.

Alex

Global Vice President of Engineering

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown leaps and bounds since being at Engineer.ai. When I first started, my focus was primarily on lead generation and business development. My role since then has transformed into much more as I've had the opportunity to dabble in sales, partnership related initiatives and product management to some extent.

Account Executive

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We look for people who are passionate about loosely held beliefs. We have a culture which encourages our people to be curious, experiment, and use their experienced points of view to challenge the status quo. We start with why in everything we do, it's part of our core DNA. We want everyone to be entrepreneurial.
