About the Role
As a global IoT platform service and cellular connectivity provider, maintaining a suitable portfolio of IoT devices and hardware connectivity options is a critical part of delivering a successful IoT development experience to makers, developers, and mass production customers.
We are looking for an experienced IoT Device Product Manager to organize and oversee the maintenance of these existing products and the development and release of new products. As a Product Manager, you will translate product development ideas into features and strategies, and manage product development from planning to commercial launch.
Products may range from fully-managed custom-designed devices that provide tight integration with Soracom’s platform services, to simple resale of existing partner devices that undergo additional validation to ensure interoperability with our SIM and cellular connectivity and provide a smooth out-of-box solution.
You will be responsible for managing the portfolio of devices, including creating an appropriate hardware roadmap that will strengthen Soracom’s IoT ecosystem and provide customers with relevant hardware options across various device segments that will ensure their business success. To be successful in this role, you should be a perceptive leader with a keen eye for details, a creative and reliable problem-solver, and have excellent teamwork and communication skills.
Candidates for this position must have a proven track record as a project or product manager, including direct experience with product development of connectivity devices. Candidates should also be familiar with technical aspects of cellular/LPWAN technology, microprocessors and sensors, and also be familiar with ecosystems of makers, developers, vendors, and other members in the IoT industry.
We are a technology start-up. With the power of cutting-edge technology, we want to continue to run at top speed and create a big impact on the world while growing rapidly ourselves. To accelerate our global IoT platform business expansion further, we are looking for candidates who continuously strive for a high level of quality. As a device product manager, you should be comfortable collaborating with external device manufacturers, module vendors and makers/developers communities, also with internal sales, marketing, business development, back office and engineering teams. In all aspects, you are expected to “deliver results” mindset for releasing products, “connected-trust” mindset for the collaboration with external/internal partners and “customer centric” mindset to address the right products that end-customer really needs.
