If you said yes, this role is for you.
Software products ultimately ‘win’ or ‘lose’ based on wisdom, simplicity, and technical insight.
Successful products are built when a clear understanding of the core value proposition is reflected into the core technical design. This is done by making a series of important technology decisions. These decisions determine whether the product delivers unique value to customers and can change the code/time required to implement by 10X.
Technical Product Managers must learn and know when to use a wide array of existing third-party technologies. They must know when and how to design new data structures and algorithms. They must have the experience to understand the fatal impact poor design decisions can have and know how to avoid them.
It's hard work but has enormous impact. When done correctly it creates huge customer value, a differentiated product from competitors, clarity for the engineering team, and more.
Unfortunately, most companies are terrible at this. They don’t do the hard work upfront and code too early. They don’t invest in developing expertise and innovating. Instead, they build roadmaps based on what competitors are delivering. TPMs focus on UIs and mockups instead of unique and valuable core data structures and algorithms.
Does this resonate with you? Do you have experience making the fundamental architecture decisions of software products? We encourage you to apply. You may have been a CTO or Technical Co-Founder of a company. You may have been responsible for the fundamental design decisions and technical choices for a larger scale organization.
If you see the world in the same way - and want to learn more in a year than most will in a decade - we urge you to apply.

Senior Technical Product Managers make the most impactful technical decisions for software companies.
As a Senior TPM you will be responsible for identifying the core functionality of a product and creating a very thoughtful design. This requires an understanding of the product’s core value proposition with our understanding of the way that software systems are built. You need to learn new technologies and describe when they should be used. You will be expected to create simple designs that focus on making and explaining the most Important technical decisions while leaving out low-impact details.
For example, even some of the most common technical decisions such as “which database to use” are often done without enough upfront consideration. When, why and how should we use a relational DB, versus noSQL, versus a key/value store, an in-memory DB, or another choice? When and in what way should we use micro-services? What about the many available options and configurations of Machine Learning tools? How will we deliberately design the best APIs?
Those are the more straightforward decisions. Decisions with greater impact include what the core data structures of the application will be and how to best apply existing or new CS algorithms to a given problem space.
Identify the most important technical decisions that must be made given the strategy and goals for a product
Build technical expertise (not industry domain expertise) in order to understand the best available options for a product design
Select the best available existing technology and stipulate the design constraints that will accompany it
Innovate the design of new data structures and algorithms where needed
Communicate these decisions, and the reasons for them, in a clear written document (tech spec)
BS in CompSci, CompE, or EE
5+ years of hands-on production code development in Java or C#
3+ years experience making the core technical design decisions that were then implemented by others
Excellent written communication skills including architecture diagrams, data flows, and system component diagrams
Strong ability to separate the strategic decisions from the tactical ones
A passion for creating work in a process-driven way and working with team members to continuously improve that process
