Our Technical Product Management roles are much more technical than what most companies call “Product Management” so traditional “product management” experience is not a requirement.
Every member of the Technical Product Management team goes through an initial 30 day training session to learn how we do Product Management at Crossover, how we structure our specifications, and how we measure the quality of the resulting documentation.
You will have clear, measurable goals and you will receive candid feedback weekly instead of waiting for quarterly or annual reviews.
We are constantly growing and acquiring new companies and products. This creates growth opportunities typically only seen in the most explosive startups, but in a profitable company with over 4,000 team members worldwide.
The Vice President of Technical Product Management excels at:
Defining data structures and object models
Creating algorithms to solve high-value problems
Mapping solutions to large “building blocks” of existing open source components and cloud services
Making decisions that reduce scope in favour of simplicity
Clear written communication
Leading and managing a team
Unfortunately, most companies do a terrible job at this. They do not do the hard work up front, and they start coding too early. They don’t invest in developing expertise and innovation. They build roadmaps based on what competitors are already delivering or on the tactical needs of the sales team. Their technical product managers focus on UIs and mockups instead of the product’s core data structures and algorithms.
For the Vice President of Technical Product Management position, you have likely been a Technical Co-Founder of a smaller company or a Senior Architect at a large software company such as Microsoft, Google, IBM, Oracle, etc.
Create technical design specs that define the core of software products
Know how to apply modern software design patterns (think cloud, containerization, etc) to product requirements
Review and provide feedback to more junior product managers turning your decisions into detailed engineering plans
