Product Managers at R3 are responsible for building business and pricing models, identifying moves to grow the business in current and adjacent markets, representing products to customers and the market. The ultimate measure of your success is the success of your products in the market. Driving the product roadmap and detailed functionality to best capture the opportunity at hand you realize a product strategy is a balance of technical capability, user experience, market forces and customer needs.

Being results oriented you will shape, measure and improve against the KPIs that will lead to the greatest adoption of our solutions.  You will design experiments and feedback loops for continual improvement.
