My last job title at Trade Me was ‘Head of Product’.
If you say you are a ‘Software Developer’ or even a ‘Development Manager’, then most people working in technology will know what that means.
But, I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a succinct definition of what makes a ‘Product Manager’. In fact, I’m not even sure I’ve heard a succinct definition of a product, in this context.
I thought it might be useful to try and describe, at least as I’ve experienced it, for those who might be interested in this sort of role.
