Technical Product Manager- Developer Tools Yelp
PMs at Yelp do a lot. As a technical product manager, you?ll work closely with our top notch dev team to help build infrastructure and tools used across the engineering organization. If you have a natural curiosity about the latest software technologies and have excellent communication skills this role could be a perfect fit. You?ll find yourself working with teams to help scope work, prioritize backlogs, build roadmaps, review specifications, coordinate releases and keep information flowing.
Manage technical projects, track progress towards milestones, and keep tabs on all the moving parts of a major release.
Actively engage engineers to understand what they are working on and the challenges they are facing.
Communicate the state of projects across teams as well as to executives and customers.
Identify, analyze and prioritize new features and tools.
Manage the design/build/test/release process end-to-end.
Strive for perfection but love to release and iterate
Requirements (and we mean it!):
+ Techie Cred: CS or similar degree so you can talk to our developers about Python, map reduce jobs, and naive Bayesian algorithms without a translator. Experience with local search or large-scale systems is a huge plus
+ Passion about the Space: You love the world of social networking, local search and consumer websites.
+ Nerd-Empathy: You?ve toyed with a Hadoop cluster or three, you?ve suffered through git rebase hell, you know the pain points of a rapid development cycle and even though you won?t be shipping code, you want to make that process easy.
+ A Conditional Love for Yelp: Like a BFF or a tee ball coach, you should love us but also be able to tell us what we're doing wrong. You'll need to be able to dish out the criticism here and take it, too.
+ A Need for Speed: Daily release cycle? Bring it!
