Make an Impact as an Associate Product Manager Intern

As an APM Intern, you will manage the development of one or several analytic products serving a wide breadth of industries. APT's diverse suite of products enables APMs to work on a variety of exciting projects, including:

  • User research - You will lead the discovery phase of new features. What business problems are users trying to tackle? How are they doing that today, both in our software and externally? What are their biggest pain points with that process, and how can we design a product which best helps them?
  • Prioritization - You will partner with roles across the organization including consultants, engineering, and sales to determine the highest priority problems to solve.
  • Solution Scoping - You will evaluate trade-offs between many possible solutions to a problem, taking into account usability, technical feasibility, client timelines, and differing stakeholder opinions to make a decision.
  • Release Management - APT believes in an agile approach to software development, so APMs break large features into smaller, releasable milestones to collect feedback from users as early as possible. You will be responsible for evangelizing releases to users, incorporating feedback, and tracking usage to inform future development.

APMs also dive deeper into:

  • Analytic Investigations - We are an analytics company. APMs partner with engineers and consultants to develop innovate analytic solutions to complex business problems.
  • Design Projects - At APT, design isn't left just to UX designers. Together with designers, APMs create mockups for features, overhaul existing designs, and institute innovative UX paradigms.
  • Product Marketing - APMs collaborate with sales & marketing to craft the best way to communicate the value of our products to potential clients.

How will I do that?

As an APM, you will sit and work with small, cross-functional engineering teams dedicated to one or more of APT's products.

  • You will work with the team to define a vision, establish team culture and processes, and create functional requirements and designs.
  • Given our emphasis on agile development, you will share ideas early, collaborate with teammates, and rapidly incorporate new feedback and ideas.
  • You will quickly develop skills in universally-used software such as SQL and R, and gain experience in industry-standard software like InVision, Splunk, and the Atlassian suite.
  • You will stay engaged throughout the feature life cycle, bridging gaps between designers, engineers, consultants, and users.

What does this mean for me?
