Director Kanzi Product Portfolio
Are you a software developer by trade, but one of those rare breeds in Technomarketing? Have you already managed a product portfolio for a growth company in the past, and ready to do it again? Are you someone who appreciates the importance of design and the visual way to market and sell technology? If you have built a roadmap or story while managing a family of software products amidst an ever-changing technical landscape, we have the perfect position for you…
At Rightware in Helsinki (www.rightware.com), we are onto something big. We have revolutionized the way car companies use visual tools for photorealistic graphics inside the cockpit and infotainment displays, by bringing gaming and mobile technologies into the embedded world. If a premium car brand (like Audi for example) wants the best high-end graphics in their UI display in full HD, and beyond, what do they do? They come to us. Performance is key, and we are able to squeeze way more out of software and hardware platforms than anyone before us. While we continue dominating the automotive market with Kanzi, and prepare to broaden our offering with the soon-to-be-released family of Kanzi products, we are looking ahead at other industries where a great-looking, fast UI is needed. This is where you come in…
We have now created a position entitled Director Kanzi Product Portfolio, to strengthen our future business development from a product portfolio point of view. You are someone who understands technical architecture from a product development and marketing perspective (but you’re not necessarily an architect). You are someone we can put in front of our customers’ CTOs, technical experts and marketing department and able to get them fired up and excited. You have a cunning ability to think about and uncover customer needs down the road, while simultaneously inspiring our designers and developers internally on the choices we are making.
We are not looking for someone to increase sales…..rather, we want you to improve and create new ways to package and sell our products, and figure out how to reach new customers, and this way increase our sales. We also don’t need you to <build> our feature roadmap, rather we need someone to influence and bring incendiary impact to it. We want a long distance runner, who understands our graphics technologies and can translate our already impressive frames per second, into WOWs per moment.
So, your daily work will consist of tight and fluid interaction between marketing, sales and product development. You’ll be a cross between Product Owner and Product Marketing, making sure we get the right message out, to the right channels and customers. You’ll be involved heavily with our licensing model, developer community and will work in close cooperation with our head of product development to meet future roadmap needs.
Since you have led product roadmapping before, you’ll have the intuitive leadership and respect to pull it all together with your systematic process thinking. You have real business intelligence and acumen in what we are doing, with the capacity and passion to figure out how it could be better. And then naturally you’re able to elegantly communicate this conclusion <internally> so people see how they are a real vivid part of our momentum and success, and <externally> so our customers and partners recognize their role in this as well.
Humble, energetic, healthily flexible
A portfolio manager, not a product manager
Sharp, clever, with excellent presentation skills: You’re an engaging speaker
Someone who knows what things to say yes to, and what things to say no to
Able to go from one product to the next, actively looking at other parts and determining where does it make sense to leverage our position in the market
This is a brand new role, one in which we are excited to welcome to our steering group. We are looking at having this person start at the beginning of next year.
We just moved to our new office in Ruoholahti, in the heart of technology companies in Helsinki. Our employees genuinely enjoy working here, and you can see it. We have regular game nights, sport nights, bar evenings, and sauna events. We have a professional foosball table, gyms downstairs, flex-time, great restaurants and bars nearby, parking and metro/tram/bus stops next door. Our salaries are competitive, our benefits are the best in Finland, and we have over a dozen nationalities represented, in addition to offices/locations in Silicon Valley, Detroit, Munich, Tokyo, Seoul, and Shanghai.
Does this new position sound like you? If so, please send us your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject entitled ‘Kanzi Products’. We look forward to hearing from you!
SW Engineer for Recent Graduate or Current Student
We are always on the lookout for a talented engineer who is sharp, witty, and potentially top caliber at programming. C and C++ is key here! But you can also have wizard like abilities in graphics APIs, OpenGL/ES, DirectX, and qt, and absolutely if you have skills in UI framework component development! The point is that we are interested in finding young and ambitious coders who pride themselves on creating clean robust code, and who are fearless when it comes to learning new things and solving complex problems with vigor.
If you are dripping with programming talent, and would like to find a good environment to practice and learn more at an actual product company in Finland, please send your CV and application in English to email@example.com with the subject entitled ‘SW Engineer – Fresh Grad / Student’. We are ready for you!
SW Engineer – UI Tools Developer
We are searching for a cunning and talented developer who is able to build high level tools in our Kanzi studio, to fire up the usability of our solution. Along with the required skills below, you need to understand the basic principles and practices of desktop application development, and know what makes a good tool and how to implement one. Naturally this means identifying gaps in features and requirements, understanding usability, and understanding scalability. We are willing to consider candidates who have experience other than C# and WPF (such as Java or C++), as long as you are able to pick up the needed languages in a short amount of time.
This is also a small team, so you will need to be experienced in coordinating things clearly and efficiently, plus good at learning and adapting in a timely fashion. Our studio codebase is huge, which will take time, so you would likely start on top of our plugin API then gradually move to core development.
- Experience on desktop application and tools development
- Experience in C# development or closely related language
- Team working skills
- Ability to pick up new technologies and functionality
Not required, but appreciated:
- Knowledge of WPF
- Experience in creating visual tools
- Experience in understanding DCC & Design tools
Its a plus if you have experience related to games and design software in general, like editors in level, material, animation etc, and plugins for DCC tools like 3DSMax.
If this sounds like you and you would like to learn more, please send your CV and application in English to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject entitled ‘SW Engineer – Tools’. We look forward to meeting you!
