You’ll be part of a small hard-working, experienced team that is passionate about changing the HVAC industry. Our work culture is very important to us; we celebrate our achievements, have regular office lunches and team events along with keeping a stocked bar to help the team to unwind after a hard day delighting our members.

About the role
As a Software Product Manager you will act as a collaborator between users, customer support, business leaders, UI/UX and our engineering team. You’ll work with users to understand their needs and desires, and you’ll have the technical skills to work with engineers to deliver those requirements. The output of your work is a commercial product that homeowners (we call them “members”) enterprise users (aka our “partners”) love and value.
You’ll explore and develop product ideas, whether interviewing customers, looking at competitors or investigating new technologies. There are many great ideas, but only some can be developed so you’ll collaborate with UX, engineering and leadership to prioritize the best for product development.
The heart of a PM’s job is to translate user requirements into executable work items that the development team can implement in the product. You will have the detailed technical knowledge necessary so you can explain feature requirements to developers and work with them to deliver these improvements for users. We often work on tight timelines so you’ll be responsible for setting aggressive timelines and managing the critical scope items to ensure projects can be delivered on time. You will have a strong analytical mind, that is comfortable discussing technology options and understanding product trade-offs.
This role is suitable for someone who enjoys collaboration and problem solving and working with users, technology and delivering software products that users love. You’ll need to be comfortable in a fast paced environment, able to work at both a user and technical level, and have a strong focus on outcomes.
