Role Summary:
The ideal person for this role will understand how products are built, look under the hood to direct changes and suggestions, and communicate technical matters to non-technical members of our team.

We’re profitable, we have great Enterprise customers, and our data is trusted by everyone from financial institutions and top-tier publications to the most successful mobile app companies and brands.

A Day in the Life: 
Interviewee: Paul Conrad - Technical Product Manager (San Francisco)

What do you like about working as a Product Manager, and with the Sensor Tower team?
We’re always working on new products that are both technically interesting and can generate entirely new kinds of insights for our users. At the same time, we can make a huge impact by exploring new data visualizations and user experiences that leverage our existing data.

What made you want to work at Sensor Tower?
Sensor Tower has incredibly powerful data that measures the most interesting new dynamics in mobile software. For a PM focused on mobile, building products to make that data actionable is an opportunity that’s too exciting to pass up.

What does your day to day look like working as a Product Manager?
I spend my time talking with users, reviewing products in development, and designing new features. On a really good day, I also get to work with our Mobile Insights team to expose their research in the Sensor Tower product, or with the Business team to help understand new use cases.

  • Understand the various use-cases and end-users of our platform (ranging from Gaming and Financial Analysts to Performance Marketers, C-Suite executives, investors and more)
  • Work closely with our co-founders to proactively and continuously organize feedback throughout a product lifecycle
  • Bring your enthusiasm and passion to the table - to excite both our customers and internal team members about upcoming feature releases and the value these features’ can provide to end-users
