Can you see yourself at the center of decision makers, users, and a large, cross-functional team of scientists and programmers, driving the creation of prominent technology products that affect everyday human health? Are you passionate about the application of cutting-edge, open source tools and technologies and open access to data? Our dream candidate is some combination of user research guru, web product developer, and diplomat who also has a deep interest or some experience in the health sciences.

Computercraft is looking for a dynamic Product Manager to help develop and manage resources at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH). NCBI resources include centralized systems that integrate biomedical data essential to the global scientific community. These preeminent resources contribute to scientific research and discovery.

As Product Manager, you will facilitate the work of scientists and clinicians and contribute to the advancement of public health. You will identify both internal and external user categories, define user needs, make product and feature proposals, create and manage action plans for product development and marketing, publicize product features to the user community, and solicit and analyze feedback.

Computercraft has two Product Manager positions open: One will be primarily responsible for ClinicalTrials.gov, while the other will be responsible for NCBI’s extensive portfolio of automated genetic sequence processing pipelines (see one example here).

What We Need:

  • At least 5 years of experience as a product manager bringing public-facing web and data products to market
  • Experience working on large and cross-functional projects in a complex, policy-driven environment
  • Experience gathering data through user research (establishing KPIs, using Google Analytics, performing usability testing), analyzing data, and applying findings in decision making
  • Expertise in UI/UX and user-centered design
  • Excellent project management, communications, and consensus-building skills
  • Ability to balance multiple goals and deadlines under resource constraints
  • Ability to incorporate and resolve conflicting direction from multiple management, user, and technical stakeholders
  • Knowledge of the technical software development process, including Agile technology

What We’d Like:

  • Experience with data visualization, accessibility, and software QA/testing
  • Familiarity with public health, biological sciences, molecular biology, or genetic variation

This is a full-time position working on site at NCBI, NIH, in Bethesda, Maryland. 

Computercraft offers a competitive salary, an excellent benefits package, the opportunity for a positive work–life balance with a standard 40-hour work week, and the chance to work alongside a team of highly accomplished professionals.
