Building digital products requires technical experts who understand how technology can make life easier. Project engineers need to understanding user problems, and then create solutions which take advantage of the latest technological advancements, and that are simple to use.
They’re responsible for the success of a product, defining features and constantly looking to improve ways of working or creating new products - most importantly bringing value.
Their job can span from planning requirements with internal customers, and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. Managing project schedules, identifying risks and clearly communicating goals to stakeholders. Projects can often span offices and time zones, so keeping all the cogs coordinated is key.
Career progression can lean towards Head-of-product positions as well as focussing on a speciality to become a domain expert.
