Description/Opportunity:



We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager with 8+ years of experience with Agile, product development teams (at least 5 years of which are in a Product Management role) and a strong drive to develop industry-shaping products and solutions. This person would begin immediately as a full-time employee in Seattle, WA.


Backed by senior CBRE executives, our team has developed a cutting edge commercial real estate platform, delivering powerful but intuitive solutions for our users. We are strong supporters of open-source technologies. Our current infrastructure is loosely comprised of:

  1. A flexible, scalable, cloud-based application layer 
  2. An API layer for client-side consumption
  3. Client-side applications designed for specific user groups

As our group continues to grow, we need a skilled Product Manager to help expand the capabilities of our team and products.

Your responsibilities will include:
Work closely with the Vice President of our group (and other Product Managers) to deliver our deeply integrated suite of products.

Work closely as a Product Manager with teams of software engineers, UX/UI designers, product marketing, stakeholders, and (most importantly) our users to design and deliver new features, improvements, and new products to our user base.

For each sprint, work with the Scrum Master to prioritize tickets with respect to the product’s goals and objectives.

Facilitate transparent communication among team members and stakeholders.
Seek a deep understanding of our user personas and needs, merging this context with what brings business value.

Break down user requests into requirements/user stories to deliver sprint MVPs while also considering the larger vision of the product.

Facilitate sprint planning sessions as a product owner and convey a high-level roadmap for the product.

Communicate, analyze, and respond to project risks as they occur.

Work with the Vice President to create and maintain business cases, presentations, and product budgets.

Qualifications:


At least 5 years of experience as a Product Manager/Owner in an Agile, open-source software development environment, especially with consumer internet products

Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent work experience

Extensive experience delivering web and mobile products

Ability to draw useful conclusions from various data sources (UX Research, Analytics, Market Research, etc.) and then apply those when defining the product roadmap

Strong investigative, analytical, and interpersonal communication skills, with the ability to work independently or as part of a team

Extreme flexibility and responsiveness to changing situations

Ability to manage a wide variety of personalities (product development teams, stakeholders, users, etc.)

An ease and confidence when interacting with senior executives

Bonus points for these qualifications:

Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO)
Experience with Python, JavaScript, or SQL

Degree in Business, Computer Science, Information Systems, HCI/UX Design, or Engineering

Experience dealing with senior executives and non-technical teams (sales, marketing, etc.)

We offer:
A competitive compensation package, with

A professional development allowance for conference attendance/training/etc.
An awesome team with whom to collaborate
A commitment to your career so you can grow
An open-source culture that encourages learning and contributing back to the community

About our team:

We’re a software engineering team within CBRE’s Digital and Technology group. We are uniquely positioned within the organization to access global data, tools, resources, and leaders throughout the industry. Our mission is to add new value by developing targeted, scalable technology platforms for internal and external consumption.

We solve complex commercial real estate problems by bringing together good people, great minds, and top-tier technologies. We believe in leveraging and supporting open-source projects and their broader communities whenever possible. We love Unix-based systems (we use Macs) but appreciate other flavors. We believe that personal growth is just as important as company growth, and that they are interdependent.

If we aren’t discussing the latest open-source news, we are chatting about our latest food discoveries, our pets, the most current (or timeless) music/audio technologies, or one of our upcoming lunch and learn events. We value good people first, and often enjoy hanging out at happy hour or other team events.
