Do you want to help us engineer a healthier tomorrow, together?

The Product Manager will serve as a customer proxy and work closely with product management, design, scientific subject matter experts, and customer insights and research team partners to define, clarify, and prioritize user stories in the team backlog. You’ll be directly involved with crafting a solution for our flagship product ARIA that provides population analytics at scale with real-time response times. This year, we’ll be crafting a first-of-its-kind user interface that places the power of big data analysis into the hands of non-computational researchers to extend access to information. To accomplish this, you will partner with design, architecture and research to develop and test prototypes which will define the problem and design solution in a way that achieves the larger product objectives. You will translate design direction into user stories with your teams all the while ensuring technical integrity as you deliver value on time through quality releases with humane scoping. This is a Product Manager role that will execute technical, design solutions within an agile, continuous delivery across the software development life cycle. You’ll be working in a complex big data ecosystem developed to drive breakthroughs in precision medicine. This means we support a wide array of public and commercial clients in their analysis of big data to generate insights across Google Cloud, Amazon AWS, and Microsoft Azure.
