What do Product Managers do?
Product Managers are the leaders behind software product development. They identify trends in the market, constantly collect and monitor user needs and try to find solutions for those needs that can be profitably sold on the market. They are comfortable working with data and constantly seeking improvement opportunities. Good product managers work closely with their engineering, user experience, team coach and data scientist colleagues, so they build products quickly and efficiently. Product Management is a high-pressure role where you constantly need to juggle between many priorities and expectations of many different stakeholders, tight deadlines and resource constraints, so being able to make decisions quickly and to say “no” frequently is essential for the role.
