At Personio, your work transforms the way millions of people experience work every day. Join our Product & Technology team that drives our customer's outcomes by designing, developing and delivering innovative and high quality products. Be empowered to take ownership of your areas and make an impact on your team, our product, and our customers.
The Lead Product Manager role extends the Senior Product Manager role expectations, and is the first career step in our senior Individual Contributor product management career path.
Lead Product Managers work in squads like other IC PMs, but possess a unique level of expertise, and often own specific topics within the product that extend across Domain boundaries. For Payroll, Lead Product Managers will lead work of a highly complex nature like Payroll Corrections and Payroll Configurations, and will be accountable for the intersections that naturally arise in other Domains such as Core HR.
Lead Product Managers are expected to coach and mentor other Product Managers, as well as assist with their career development. This includes being an official mentor with regular check-ins on larger initiatives with a focus on elevating the Product Manager's Career Development Framework skills development. Under certain circumstances there may also be the requirement for limited direct people management.
Lead Product Managers are expected to drive outsized business results via their direct contributions. This can include shaping product prioritisation, representing Product in GTM motions, driving efficiency with CX, unblocking future facing strategy via a heavy focus on iteration or the generation and utilisation of data to inform where we direct our investment. Lead PMs will ensure the successful execution of the initiatives they lead, either by identifying and establishing the operational modes necessary for collaboration, and/or by marshaling the Program resources required for success.
