This role will explore, scope and deliver Mysa’s next HVAC products, while also expanding the value delivered by our existing product lineup.

What You Will Do:

    • Meet with customers directly and through customer facing teams to collect and analyse user feedback to shape new product ideas and user requirements.
    • While working within dynamic cross-functional teams, build and execute product roadmaps for new hardware products. You will maintain and prioritize product scope, create documentation for development, marketing and customer support teams, and review completed work providing continuous feedback.
    • Work closely with the engineering department, marketing/growth, customer support, and other departments to ensure successful delivery of products into the market. Principally, you will be responsible for creating story based documentation for development teams and supporting its execution.
    • Work with Project Manager to monitor and report on progress towards  new product development. 
    • Monitor smart home, home HVAC, and mobile device trends to identify and understand potential product and feature opportunities. Additionally, working with the product team, use these insights to steer product feature implementation and prioritization.
    • Work throughout the Mysa team in order to align prioritization, maximize resource utilization, and help ensure the development of products our customers will love.
    • Support the implementation of product and feature usage tracking and analyze patterns to identify new product feature opportunities and validate success of feature rollouts.
