The market opportunity is massive, with significant headroom for growth in this rapidly transitioning sector. Reporting to the Director of Product, Equipment Monitoring, you'll work on full-stack products spanning software, firmware, and hardware. The ideal candidate thrives in ambiguity, possesses strong product sense, and excels at cross-functional collaboration.

What You'll Do

  • Develop comprehensive product strategies and roadmaps for equipment monitoring solutions, balancing customer needs, market opportunities, and technical feasibility
  • Engage directly with customers across various verticals to gather feedback, identify pain points, and synthesize insights, distinguishing between individual requests and generalizable needs
  • Create detailed product requirements documents (PRDs) and work closely with engineering teams to scope and prioritize features, navigating technical trade-offs and business implications
  • Support Engineering teams through the product development lifecycle, from ideation to launch, ensuring alignment between technical capabilities and business objectives
  • Analyze market trends, competitive landscape, and product performance metrics to inform data-driven decisions and drive continuous product improvement
  • Collaborate with GTM teams to develop compelling product positioning, go-to-market strategies, and support sales enablement efforts

What We're Looking For

  • 5+ years of product management experience, with a focus on enterprise SaaS products and IoT solutions
  • Strong technical acumen, with the ability to manage conversations across software, firmware, and hardware domains
  • Proven track record of successfully launching and scaling products in fast-paced environments
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build strong relationships across functions and influence without authority
  • Data-driven approach to decision-making, combined with strong product intuition and user empathy
  • You have high “EQ” and the ability to handle multiple competing priorities and tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment
  • You are comfortable and confident sharing your thoughts in verbal or written form. You can engage constructively in debate and discussion with different personality types and seniority levels.
  • You are a trailblazer who is humble, kind, and open to learning new stuff. You can take a stand yet commit even when you disagree. You have a strong bias to action
  • Experience working with GTM teams and engaging directly with customers to gather insights and validate product concepts
  • Bachelor's degree in a technical or business-related field; MBA is a plus
