Associate Product Management Consultant Product People. About The Role. Help Product People be category-defining in the consulting space.. When people think of electric cars, they think of Tesla. For music, it’s Spotify. When thinking about Product Management, they should think of Product People. You’ll own or contribute to initiatives to lead us there: playbooks, product management knowledge sharing, networking, process automation, etc. . Support Senior Product Management Consultants who serve as Interims. . Our clients are usually post-product market-fit from series B to publicly listed. You’ll be supporting the client-facing PMs who drive complex cross-functional initiatives in B2C or B2B products.

Prioritize, zoom in and out. . Make an incredible impact, bring clarity in chaos, and orchestrate flawless execution. Support the client-facing PMs to manage discovery and delivery for at least three parallel streams (internally and externally). You are good at unglamorous hands-on work and strategy. You understand how deep or wide you need to go when that’s the case and when it’s not. . Effectively manage various groups consisting of strong personalities. .
