Senior Product Manager Contractor

(South America, Remote)

Planorama plans and designs the UI/UX of software applications through modern product management and design practices. We deliver user-focused UI/UX design with everything the development and QA teams need to build the application. As a Planorama Product Manager, you will work collaboratively with our client to understand product and business requirements, define features and prioritize scope, and work with our product design team to execute into UI/UX designs with detailed user story documentation.

Our customers are generally U.S.-based and come from a variety of industry verticals.

Our product managers…

The product management role at Planorama may be a little different than at other companies who are building their own products. A Planorama product manager (PM) engages actively with our clients, who may or may not have their own product management staff. Planorama PMs are part consultant (to the client), part advocate (for the client), part organizer of requirements (and other information), and part solution-owner of product features. Consider if these statements resonate with you:

  • THINK HOLISTICALLY: Have a drive to understand the big picture for a client’s product, and think through both problems and feature ideas that our client may not have considered
  • REQUIREMENTS-ORIENTED: Research enough information from the client to present a set of roles and features that will meet their product and business objectives.
  • TECHNICAL: Understand how modern software products are developed and deployed, and comfortable talking with engineering / developer teams (Note: you do NOT need to be a developer)
  • CUSTOMER-FACING: Able to speak with and present to our clients via online meetings
  • ORGANIZED: Thrive on staying organized and creating order when there is none
  • HONEST: Speak up when something doesn’t look or feel right
  • DRIVEN: Challenge themselves and the team to learn and do better
  • COLLABORATIVE: Communicate well and often, and are used to working in remote teams
  • PROCESS-ORIENTED: Understand the value of process, versus being a “lone ranger”

If this sounds like you, and you’re available for at least 15 hours/week remote contract work, let’s talk.


Requirements

  • Written and spoken fluency in English.  As our clients speak English, and our documentation is written in English, fluency is a must

  • Experience breaking down software requirements into product features necessary to meet those requirements
  • Experience authoring epics and user story documentation
  • Experience with agile software development as a methodology, and in particular Agile SCRUM
  • Experience fulfilling the role of product owner within an agile team
  • Discipline to work remotely for assigned hours per month, and remain engaged with your team on a daily basis for stand-ups, review meetings, and 1-on-1’s with team members as needed
  • Availability to work a minimum of 15 hours per week, with at least half of them during normal U.S. business hours
