Job Description

This product manager will be responsible for the strategy, roadmap and feature definition for connecting MSI’s on-prem CAD/Mobile/Records portfolio to the cloud solution.

The product manager uses their technical knowledge and background, and analyzes the broader portfolio strategy market conditions to lay out a roadmap that is differentiated and delivers unique value based on customer demands. The role of the product manager spans many activities from strategic to tactical and provides cross-functional leadership—bridging gaps within the company between different functions, especially between development, sales and marketing, and support. The ability to deeply understand and define the technical architecture and engineering behind features and to translate high level customer functional requirements into technical for development is a crucial skill. In addition, the ability to describe the impact of technical requirements to customers and non-technical sales and support resources is a must.

The product manager is responsible for defining the ‘why’, ‘what,’ and ‘when’ of the product that the development team will build. They are the director of their product -- which means they lead cross-functional teams from a product's conception through to its launch.
