Product Manager 


Qarik Overview 

 

Qarik Group, LLC is a technology consulting firm focused on combining senior-level expertise and experience to help clients see further and go faster, solving big business problems.


We have a saying at Qarik that sums up our culture: ‘Greatness grows greatness.’ It reflects how we support each other by sharing expertise, experience and opportunity. One person’s insight smooths the way for another to succeed. And it’s not just about supporting each other. It’s as much about how we help our client's businesses thrive. By using what we collectively know and mashing ideas together, breathtaking things happen. Not least of which is how your career’s journey can go further and faster than you ever imagined possible. So, if you have greatness to give, we've got the perfect place to help it grow.

 

About Our Work

 

We work “with” our clients, not "for" them. We embrace agile instead of deliverables and milestones - establish a vision, create theme based roadmap and then execute. We work in the trenches with client's engineers to learn from each other's experiences and capabilities.  We frequently have a stake in their success, ensuring that everyone is aiming towards the same goals.


We check badges and egos at the door and bring incredible people together to achieve great outcomes. This allows people to bring their whole person to contribute to, and be part of the team. You should never feel like you have to be somebody else.

 

Overview of the Role

 

Delivering working software is mostly a solved problem, even if many companies still fail.

What is more important is making sure you build the right software with the right features and the right costs. This is where as a product manager, you will play a critical role in the success of Qarik and the success of our customers.


You'll drive product vision by understanding a company's vision, all the dynamics in the market from supply, demand, customer expectations along with industry trends. You will then collaboratively build the product vision with stakeholders and customers resulting in a clearly articulated product vision that excites and motivates.


You will then create a product roadmap and clear execution plan and work relentlessly to track metrics, trends, progress, epics and stories to ensure everybody on the extended product team is working towards fulfilling the product vision.
