Who We’re Looking For – The Personal Competencies That Matter
Technical chops – We need to know that we can lean on you to be part of a growing and dynamic
Product management team critical to the PM organization. This likely means you have a 3 + years of Product Management. You have worked with an engineering team using an Agile process in a product owner role. Ideally, you have background in Information Governance, compliance or eDiscovery experience in a fast-paced organization.
Influencing and relationship-building – We want someone with the ability to quickly establish credibility with and gain the trust and respect across the entire organization: from the senior leadership team to frontline employees, and everyone in between. A good situational leader understands the nuances and complexities of executing on an agenda which impacts multiple areas of a company in a growth organization. You must be able to balance asking the right questions with providing direction to ensure that the work gets done, and not just by you.
Balanced (short and long-term) - You are as hands-on as you are visionary and recognize that nothing gets done without discipline and execution. You consistently demonstrate a solid understanding of the trade-offs between strategy and tactics, setting goals with an emphasis on long-term value creation.
Emotional agility – You will need to demonstrate that you can make a difference quickly while embracing Ipro’s culture. You will also need to establish credibility across the organization – spanning all functions and levels - by demonstrating strategic acumen and a willingness to work with others to achieve a goal without taking all the credit. You are also comfortable formulating a plan quickly and committing to it, but flexible enough to modify and adapt to choose a different course of action when needed.
Thrives in ambiguity - At times, this role will be responsible for taking nebulous ideas and translating them into specific, concrete actions. Your work will not always be paint-by-number. You will be comfortable taking nebulous direction, translating it into a plan, and enlisting those you need to get the job done. As such, you will have examples of times when you took a poorly- formed idea, sharpened it, and owned its execution from start-to-finish.
Growth Mindset – You enjoy the process of getting better at what you do, and you seek out the feedback that improves your ability to learn from your experiences. The prospect of contributing to a growing technology business with collaboration from the strategy and leadership team is attractive to you for reasons you can convincingly articulate.
Dig Deep– You will be accountable for delivering on your own commitments to our customers, colleagues, and team. Own your part and work together to deliver.
Keep it real: – Display integrity and transparency. Graciously accept feedback and deliver it respectfully and always assume the best intentions.
Enjoy the ride: Wherever you are, be all there. You should have fun working at Ipro
