I am actively searching for a product manager for a progressive and innovative leader in Navigational Mapping and Cartography! If you KNOW of anyone, please have them contact me directly at jobs@litchfieldandassociates.com


As Product Manager for our client, you will build and guide a team that is charged with a product line contribution as a business unit. This extends from increasing the profitability of existing products to developing new products for the company. You will build products from existing ideas, and help to develop new ideas based on your industry experience and your contact with customers and prospects. You must possess a unique blend of business and technical savvy; a big-picture vision, and the drive to make that vision a reality. You must enjoy spending time in the market to understand their problems, and find innovative solutions for the broader market.

You must be able to communicate with all areas of the company. You will work with an engineering counterpart to define product release requirements. You will work with marketing communications to define the go-to-market strategy, helping them understand the product positioning, key benefits, and target customer. You will also serve as the internal and external evangelist for your product offering, occasionally working with the sales channel and key customers.

A product manager's key role is strategic, not tactical. The other organizations will support your strategic efforts; you won't be supporting their tactical tasks.

    Specify market requirements for current and future products by conducting market research supported by on-going visits to customers and non-customers.
    Drive a solution set across development teams (primarily Development/Engineering, and Marketing Communications) through market requirements, product contract, and positioning.
    Develop and implement a company-wide go-to-market plan, working with all departments to execute.
    Analyze potential partner relationships for the product.

  • 3+ years of software marketing/product management experience with Cartography, GPS, or GIS Technology.
    Strong knowledge of technology.
    Computer Science or Engineering degree or specific industry work experience is a big plus.
    This position requires being based in the Boston area and will include travel to customer and non-customer sites in North America and Europe (25%).

Someone who LOVES the outdoors and outdoor activities such as climbing, hiking, fishing, boating, hunting, etc. would be a great fit for my client!
