The Purpose, Role Definition, and Requirements: The WHY and WHAT for a Senior Product Manager / Director

The Senior Product Manager / Director, Digital Technology will be part of the team that is transforming our product development and design process into one that leverages human centered design practices with a focus on actively engaging clients/candidates in product development and co-creation. The Senior Product Manager will be part of “design thinking” engagements that include ideation, iteration and testing. This role will also contribute to driving Collabera’s new product roadmap. The successful candidate will ideally have experience in design thinking and will be responsible for supporting projects based on human centered design methods and working across functions (e.g., design, technology, products, etc.). The role requires the person to be comfortable with ambiguity, developing solutions that begin with the customer and rapid iterations of prototypes to deliver client/candidate experiences that are simple, powerful, and exceptional. In addition, he/she will need to play a critical role in project management and strategy for the full lifecycle of product development - from ideation and working through to pilot processes. He/she will bring prior experience in hands-on development of solutions, UI and prototypes. He/she is creative and hands-on, has a bias for action and is able to inspire others with their vision.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Design, lead and facilitate workshops then synthesize insights into visions, frameworks, and concepts using human-centered design and lean start-up processes.

  • Use business as a lens to inspire fellow designers about new possibilities by sharing innovative business models and product offerings with your teams.
  • Energize and improve the status quo using creativity and intelligent, calculated risks to deliver new products and processes that surpass clients’ expectations, demonstrating new methods, capabilities, and mindsets.
  • Drive coordination with core product teams to enable development
  • Develop processes to support pilot programs including articulating the objective of the test, identifying and implementing operational support, defining and implementing reporting needs and tracking/reporting/summarizing results
  • Articulate the possibility, viability and feasibility of product recommendations
  • Create business cases and models using Collabera data and external research to support the development of new products, services, solutions, and features
  • Conduct in-depth market testing using various qualitative research methods

Essential Functions:

  • Must have a mindset that embraces creativity, optimism, ambiguity and failing-fast
  • Proven ability to work on complex and often ambiguous problems, to drive results
  • Analytical thinker, team oriented, collaborative, diplomatic, and flexible, with excellent presentation skills, including strong oral and writing capabilities
