Job Description

The Company’s platform team is building the core of organization. They use software to match engineers with the machine shops and manufacturing capabilities that bring their products to life.  They have built trusted partnerships with manufacturers to bring them a stable stream of revenue that helps grow their business.

As a product manager, you define and deliver the Company’s platform to engage with our manufacturing partners.  The product you build will connect these talented machinists with the latest, innovative products and make it easier and simpler for them to build their business.

What’s in it for you?

Change the way physical products are made

As a Product Manager, you know how difficult it is to develop products with long release cycles. This is the norm in hardware development today. With the Company, we use software to build prototypes faster, get more actionable feedback, and transfer those learning direction to production manufacturing. You will have a direct role in shaping our product and the manufacturing industry.

Work with inspiring manufacturers

We have built strong relationships with both our domestic and overseas partners who have honed their craft in manufacturing.  As a Product Manager, you will have the opportunity to visit these partners, see their work, and understand their workflows at a deep level.  We work hand-in-hand with them to build the tools needed to build exactly what the customers want, develop trust in their capabilities, and expand their business.

What You'll Be Doing

·       Understand our partners’ needs through on-site user research (domestic and overseas) and data analysis.  Develop conviction around the problems we’re solving and bring those insights to the team

·       Collaborate with design, engineering and other company departments across the globe to identify product opportunities, develop hypotheses, and create high-impact solutions for our partners

·       Champion your team in achieving successful outcomes by clearly communicating OKRs, prioritizing initiatives, and removing friction from the product development process

·       Create trust and transparency by communicating team progress and results to stakeholders; help the organization celebrate successes and learn from failures

·       Developing a strategic roadmap that aligns with company and team OKRs, as well as detailed product requirements for near-term development efforts

Desired Traits

·       Partner oriented – You are curious about hardware manufacturing and the working life of machine shop owners.  You love talking to them about their craft and developing insights into their needs

·       Skilled problem solver – You can break big problems into smaller, more manageable challenges and you’re comfortable making fast, high quality product decisions using both quantitative and qualitative data

·       Articulate communicator – You can convey partner needs clearly with multiple stakeholders, and you bring those people together to create a differentiated product to serve our partners

·       Data driven - You know how to build a product that generates insightful datastreams, both for understanding user behavior and measuring the success of features.  Experience with SQL and statistical analysis is recommended
