This position can be located in Woodlands, TX or New Orleans, LA.
The senior manager of analytics product management is a key leadership role under product delivery function within the analytics organization. The senior manager will be responsible for overseeing the design and creation of all insightful analytics products and solutions for internal business customers. The senior manager of product management will lead a team consisting of a product designer, solution architect, an automation analyst, and multiple product managers. The senior manager is responsible for consistent, customer centric analytics solutions across all product teams. Individual product managers will lead product teams organized into “analytics pods.” Each pod will be comprised of multiple roles from both the analytics team and the business organizations, including data scientists, data engineers, and business subject matter experts.
This role requires the oversight of individual product managers, a product designer, an automation analyst, and a solution architect, ensuring they have the resources they need to deliver analytics products. Working with a peer business analytics manager, the senior manager is responsible for customer engagement and driving tactical, strategic, innovative approaches to analytics delivery following an agile product development framework.
Analytics products are a combination of software, data, automation, and other digital tools that provide insights and recommendations that business leaders may use to make tactical and strategic decisions. The analytics products may leverage a combination of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics approaches. These approaches include reports, dashboards, streaming data, regression models, learning models, spatial models, artificial intelligence, and other analytics techniques. The senior manager need not be an expert in these various analytics products, because the primary focus of the role is to leverage a repeatable product delivery process to bring analytics products into service and use by business customers. However, the manager should be able to understand the range of analytics products the organization can deliver.
The senior manager will design and continually improve repeatable agile product delivery processes leveraging product development best practices. The senior manager will ensure internally developed agile product delivery processes are followed across all product teams. The senior manager will also establish measurable process goals and targets, regularly measuring process performance against these goals and targets.
