We are looking for individuals with high attention to detail that can manage a disparate set of mostly internal customers that are building products for GM’s external fleet customers. Given the importance of data to the success of the commercial software team and the technical nature of the product area, the ideal candidate has product management experience with data products or infrastructure and is familiar with common data processing and analytics technologies. A bias for action and a self-starter mindset is important in GM commercial software’s agile environment.

Product Management is responsible for developing, managing, and driving product initiatives across the organization. Key tasks include executing the product vision, roadmap, and requirements. This also includes working with cross-functional teams, conducting market research, and collaborating with other teams to ensure the successful launch of new products. The role requires strong analytical skills, communication ability, and a passion for delivering exceptional products that meet customer needs

Collaborate with stakeholders

  • Lead cross-functional communication to notify and align teams on data platform changes and issues along with their impact on downstream applications and services
  • Answer telematics data related questions

  • Strong collaboration as well as written, verbal and visual communication skills as many teams will be dependent on the data platform and you will be a primary resource for data-related questions
  • Analytical mindset with a passion for data and its role in driving business value
  • Appreciation for the importance of and challenges with data quality; the curiosity to interrogate data, propose and answer data questions and get to the bottom of results that don’t make sense
