What you’ll be doing...

As a Product Manager in the Platform team, the Emerging Platform Product Manager will be responsible for innovating and developing enterprise product platforms from inception to building proofs of concept to commercialization. Emerging platforms incorporate concepts from spatial computing, remote rendering, blockchain and adjacent technologies.

Challenges are many and include:

  • Identifying new opportunities
  • Market pain points
  • Fit for Verizon
  • Path to monetization

The Product Manager will work with many different teams to qualify new solutions and assess feasibility of implementation. The qualification process will include developing a business case, technical deep dive and assessing alignment with Verizon. Additionally, this position will work with outside partners to drive rapid prototyping efforts tested against pre-defined goals and KPIs defined with partner teams. A successful candidate will be a confident collaborator, spokesperson and champion for their ideas and work diligently to build a coalition of internal support. A customer-first mentality, out of the box thinking and a good strategic mindset are all critical for success.
