The Role

We are looking for a dynamic, customer obsessed, and solution-oriented Technical Program Manager to lead Product Launch Readiness and Product Integration.

  • Product success - working with PMs to ensure product launch success metrics are defined, tracked, reported out on, and used to inform future decisions. This will include coordination with Product and Engineering on pilots and beta testing.

  • Product operations - coordinating with sales ops and supply chain on forecasts inventory planning, internal and external product documentation

  • Sales & marketing - bridging product and commercial input into to the Gen3 roadmap, sales forecasts, sales strategy, order placement, sales enablement, customer engagement and marketing plans, branding and messaging

  • Installer program readiness - ensuring installer training, tech Portal content, lead pass programs, etc are all geared-up and ready for launch

  • Customer support & service engineering - ensuring customer-facing documentation and FAQs, internal troubleshooting tooling and processes, and RMA processes are ready

  • Ongoing supply chain and manufacturing operations - informing order fulfillment, inventory management, ensuring quality of all products

  • Legal - ensuring installer or customer agreements, partner agreements, consumer protections and other regulatory requirements are ready for launch
