Product Manager

Description

We’re at a turning point in history. Climate change is changing the world faster than ever before. Utilities will play a crucial role in the transformation of our society to fight climate change and become carbon-neutral, while at the same time making sure people and businesses can continue to use energy supply like they’ve been used to for so many years.

At Gorilla, we’re determined to not stay aside, but to make a real impact on the utility industry by providing data services that allow utilities to play the role they need to play in the quest for a net-zero society. By building something that solves a real problem, and by being the best at what we do.

your role

  • You’re involved in translating our quarterly goals and objectives into a roadmap to achieve those goals incrementally (in product increments), consistent with our product vision and company mission.

  • You’re involved in workshops, to gain a deeper understanding of our customer & prospects challenges and how our product will contribute.

  • You define & fine tune the features of each product increment in tight collaboration with a UX/UI designer and an Architect by using a proven process and deliver clear and detailed documentation of those features to the engineering team.

  • You steer the product engineering process and effectively manage the scope, resources & timing of each product increment and its feature(s) in alignment with the other product managers. And make sure it gets delivered timely and qualitatively.

  • You’re the coach and spoc for your team members.

your responsibilities

By working closely together with our Product Designer and Product Architect in a structured and efficient process, you take responsibility for detailing the new product features with a focus on user experience and business value, striving to achieve the set out goals of that product increment. You make sure to follow the definition process of organising UX and technical sessions and workshops with all relevant stakeholders, to determine how each of the features will work in detail.

Together with the definition team, you deliver detailed functional, visual and technical documentation and specs, which can be efficiently engineered.

You are a stickler for structure and procedure and make sure the engineering team follows all the required steps in the process to deliver the features timely and qualitatively. You lead the agile ceremonies in the process and make sure they are executed correctly. You are involved in the planning, fight for the resources you need and efficiently allocate them. You meticulously plan what will be delivered and set out the timeline for the definition and delivery. Continuously monitoring the progress to keep each task on track, balancing the goals’ deadline and its success.
