How do you take human capital and turn it into a product life cycle? As Product Manager, People at Andela, this will be your mission.
You will help be the translator between supply and demand. You will sit at the intersection of supply (i.e. our developers) and demand (i.e. our Partners) who need talented developers trained on specific stacks to support their demanding product development needs. You will be part of a team that determines what we sell and ensure that there is product-market fit to effectively produce (i.e. match market demand with skills and training needed by our fellows). If successful, your will work to advance Andela’s overall mission of proving that brilliance is evenly distributed.
This role requires a product management background, an entrepreneurial mindset, a deep understanding of a technical product lifecycle management, and an ability to think about product lifecycle through the lens of developing human capital.
More specifically, you will help define product strategy and refine our value proposition and offerings to the tech community and developer ecosystem. You will work cross functionally in collaboration with Talent Development, Partnerships, Success, Sales, and Marketing to both empower our developers and improve product-market fit of our unique technical staffing solutions.
Ideally, you will have a software development background who has transitioned into a product management function at a SaaS company or consulting firm. You should be comfortable with a distributed team, rapid growth, being creative with resources, and possessing a keen focus on execution (i.e. getting things done) in a disruptive space.
