Senior Product Manager - Rugged Electronics
Home based
£40-60k

My client manufactures rugged electronics for use in O&G, aerospace, defence, industrial and other hazardous environments. This spans a range of applications, from wireless (RF, antennas, tracking) and vision systems to power supplies, and they're currently looking for a Product Manager to act as the bridge between engineering and sales.

This role will require a lot of customer contact, but the vast majority will be dealt with remotely (via webex and conf calls), so travel will be estimated as 6-8 international trips per year (for no longer than a week at a time). The key responsibility is defining customer requirements, assisting sales and aiding product development with user feedback.

The bias will be more towards the RF/ wireless product group, so the ideal candidate will have:

- A technical degree in electronics/ telecoms/ industrial engineering, or similar
- A field applications engineering, product marketing, business development or product management background
- An understanding of IOT platforms, RFID and/ or tracking products (desirable)
- The ability to travel internationally when required
- The willingness to operate from a home office

This is a company who have been trading since the early 1990's, so they're a trusted and respected brand in rugged electronics. They have recently launched this wireless business unit so it's a high profile role which will report in to the president of that BU, and offers a lot of autonomy over how those products are developed/ rolled out.

Apply now if you're a field applications engineer, or a product marketing/ business development/ product manager, who wants an independent role with a rugged electronics OEM.
